Ultron is going to be amazing.
mmadadamm - 8/1/2014, 6:02 PM
what's the point of giving Hawkeye a new costume if they couldnt even include his cowl? Ugh

Can't wait for this movie.

Where's the obligatory scantily clad women with big boobs and ass?

Guardians of the Galaxy here I come!!!
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 6:12 PM

cuz it doesn't make sense for this incarnation of hawkeye to wear one. he'd look ridiculous.
tvor03 - 8/1/2014, 6:17 PM
Because Joss Whedon doesn't give characters costumes for no reason. Which is why I don't understand why everyone expects quicksilver and scarlet witch to suddenly be "issued" their costumes at the end of the movie. Where in any of the MCU does that have precedence?
XF14 - 8/1/2014, 6:21 PM
So I guess transcripts are a thing of the past?
Dunejedi - 8/1/2014, 6:22 PM

Yeah, cuz the leather frock he's wearing now doesn't look ridiculous AT ALL.
kakinurmawth - 8/1/2014, 6:41 PM
Damn I'd hate to interview Marvel actors and stuff. You just can't get anything. Someone should get them all in one location and give them A LOT of booze and THEN ask them questions hahaha
kakinurmawth - 8/1/2014, 6:42 PM
I wonder if in their contracts there are financial penalties for disclosing information....that'd keep me quiet
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 6:44 PM

wallhead - 8/1/2014, 6:47 PM

u missed the part where I said this incarnation would not have need for one. he is/was a tactical agent. not a "superhero"
GliderMan - 8/1/2014, 6:52 PM
Well, Hawkeye should be a SUPERHERO, and to the people of New York he is. But I don't see a need for his cowl. It's not like he's hiding his identity.

Don't complain. It isn't needed. And who knows, maybe they'll include it at some part. Maybe it could be used at night for night vision or some shit.
Abary - 8/1/2014, 6:52 PM
@XF14, when the video is over three minutes long, yes.
kakinurmawth - 8/1/2014, 6:55 PM
@Josh Wilding have you interviewed any Marvel actors? And if so was it as hard to get info out of as it was for these guys?
Dunejedi - 8/1/2014, 6:57 PM

Yeah, I think I also missed the part where you laid out the difference between 'tactical agent' and 'superhero'.

Cap doesn't NEED a mask, the general public knows he's Steve Rogers. Presumably, he still wears it because "people could use a little Old Fashioned". Boom, reasons. Why can't Hawkeye wear his cowl, again? Oh yeah, he's a 'tactical agent', got it.
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:02 PM
lol I think its a matter of asking the right questions, which they never do.
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:06 PM

sigh. you again. first off, cap wore a HELMET for most of his career. the only time he wore a "mask" is when SHEILD gave him his uniform. It was issued. not his choice. he clearly ditched it, and went back to helmets first chance he go i.e. cap 2. nobody in this universe wears mask(not yet anyway), why would hawkeye, the guy least needing to wear one start.
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:07 PM
kakinurmawth - 8/1/2014, 7:07 PM
@wallhead hahah yeah man true. I still wouldn't want to navigate that mine field
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:10 PM

and I didn't lay out the difference between superhero and tactical agent cuz I figured ur brain would do it for u. his first instance of "super heroics" was the battle of new York. so now all of a sudden he is gonna think to himself..hey I want a mask? lol just stop.
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:13 PM

I know right. I just wish they'd get real fans to start asking the questions. the interviewers half the time don't know what they are even talking about. how do I know what respone actors are gonna give to ur questions before they even open there mouths? lol
wallhead - 8/1/2014, 7:16 PM
kakinurmawth - 8/1/2014, 7:20 PM
@Gandhi LOL

True Detective was a [frick]ing amazing show btw
MrBlackJack - 8/1/2014, 7:21 PM
I love the sleeve/coat look.
Nomis - 8/1/2014, 7:24 PM

blkchi - 8/1/2014, 8:22 PM
Yeah love that girl as hill same for Sam jack he's grown on me but why do we need gaskets a guy shooting arrows how he and green arrow stay relevant is beyond me hell cloak dagger nonpayment Ms marvel daredevil thousand other mcu characters but why hawkeye
cyns - 8/1/2014, 9:45 PM
I've seen the cowl and I think it's a rather dated look. He doesn't need it, IMO.

I'm not a huge fan of the long jacket, but it seems like it will serve it's purpose with the pics I've seen.

I really can't wait for this movie. After watching GOTG, I'm so effing ready for this movie now!
TheBrotherhood - 8/1/2014, 10:42 PM

i hear the it is better than the whole man of steel movie


figuresmaniac - 8/1/2014, 11:14 PM
You want a cowl? I give you a cowl

NitPicker - 8/1/2014, 11:42 PM

I think they should give him the cowl. He looks so generic in the movies. He has no type of presence.

Remember that scene in The Avengers where you see THE BLACK WIDOW take control of the Chitauri chariot, then you see IRON MAN provide some cover for her, then you see CAPTAIN AMERICA and IRON MAN kicking kicking some Chitauri ass on the street below, then you see IRON MAN fly up the side of a building, then you see that s.h.i.e.l.d. agent (what's his face?) shoot an arrow, then you see THE HULK and THOR swatting the Chitauri away before bringing down a Leviathan.

And if they aren't going to give him the cowl, then they should at least give him the purple outfit. Look at that Age of Ultron picture they released last week. You see The Hulk all big and green. You see Thor's red cape blowing in the wind. You see Quicksilver's blue streak as he runs through the battle field. All of the characters stand out. Except Hawkeye. He kinda blends in with all the Ultrons. If they had given him the purple outfit, not only would that picture look better, but I think people would be much more interested in seeing Hawkeye in these movies.

Poor Cobie... she cant get her turn to speak with these dudes ;)
AztecRainGod - 8/2/2014, 1:04 AM
The cowl is actually a semi-issue once again?

Renner is a phuckin boss, he needs some ridiculous face mask like he needs to paint a 50 foot flaming hawk on a bridge while people are being executed on the hour. (Which is, not at all)
GhostProtocol - 8/2/2014, 1:57 AM
Aww its cute how you guys think theyre gonna break contract just cuz you want them to. They do that, they'll lose their job, and run the risk of not being hired again. I think that's enough of a monetary fine. Just be damn patient like the rest of us and stop expecting people will [frick] themselves over for you.

Second, comic canon has little place here so stop quoting what genetic alterations Clint has there, CBU and MCU dont cross streams the same way. Unless its confirmed, it doesnt count.

PS I guess you missed Cap's mask in Winter Soldier, he chose his own when he "robbed" the Smithsonian, don't fool yourself that he hates them and refuses to wear them.
NitPicker - 8/2/2014, 1:59 AM

True. Jeremy Renner is cool. But we're not talking about Jeremy Renner. We're not talking about Aaron Cross. We're not talking about William Brandt. We're not talking about Hansel. We're talking about Hawkeye.

Samuel Jackson at 3:00 mark: "Joss knows us all so well now that he can put things into our mouth"
