Falcon: New Captain America Announced On ‘Colbert Report’

The Falcon, Steve Rogers’ longtime friend, will now be the new face of Captain America in the comic books. News of the change in character was announced on July 16 on The Colbert Report.

Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Joe Quasada announced the news to Stephen on the July 16 show. “Sam Wilson, his partner, The Falcon, is becoming the new Captain America,” Joe revealed. 

Stephen was a bit shocked at the news because he wanted the job. “If there is one bird associated with America, it is the falcon,” he joked.

This is huge news for the comic book world. Steve Rogers has carried Captain America’s shield for decades and this will mark the first time that an African American character has replaced the beloved character.
