    Don’t really know why, but I’m really looking forward to seeing more of Hawkeye! I think he looks pretty cool!

    • Slice

      Renner’s scowl looks more like a pout!

      Someone stole his eggo waffle!!

  • broski

    Cap’s new costume looks ridiculously goofy. They should’ve just used a slight variation of the WWII costume.

    • M&M

      Spot on.

  • Leo

    Why does Cap even have to wear a mask, he never hid his identity in the 1940s. Renner looks a little goofy but will be insanely insane in the awesome department during the movie. ScarJo, still can’t take her seriously and I don’t think she is of the same acting caliber of the others.

  • Leo

    Why does Cap even have to wear a mask, he never hid his identity in the 1940s. Renner looks a little goofy in that costume but he will easily bring the intensity in a very insanely insane but awesomely awesome way during the movie. Still can’t take ScarJo seriously, she just wasn’t the same caliber actor as the others in IronMan2 (same goes for Paltrow). It just feels like she is there for her looks and not because she can deliver a convincing performance as tough.

    • excpired

      lol @ paltrow not being a good actor. Someone is on too much acid, or maybe just such a huge prude they can’t stand female actresses being in movies if they aren’t being housewives.

      Caps costume still looks lame but it doesn’t look as lame as the 40′s one imo. They need to make his costume more shiny. Maybe go with a metal-based swat suit? I don’t know, but wearing an american flag as an outfit went out of style in the mid-60′s.

      • Leo

        Im not saying shes a bad actress, im saying she wasn’t good in Ironman, watch scenes like in the first ironman where they place the little bomb on the door to get into the part of the factory where the Iron Monger is and she says something like “O what is that is it some kind of Key” or for ScarJo where she is changing in the car and says “keep your eyes on the road”. Those lines are just so poorly delivered and really stand out when comparing the acting to Downey Jr.

      • b

        Chill out dude. If anything, dropping acid would let you be more critical of an actor’s performance. Paltrow’s not exactly hot shit. She won an Oscar because she got the role of a lifetime that a hundred other actresses would’ve also killed.

    • MOlly

      Yeah Scarlett was the definite low point in Iron Man 2. She cant act at all and even in those pics she looks like she has no idea who her character is. Gwyneth I liked though, she is a great actress – all the Pepper/Tony scenes were among the highlights for me. So I really hope there is few scenes with Scarlett in the Avengers and REALLY hope she is NOT in Iron Man 3. Renner, love him he is a good actor as of course is RDJ, Marc Ruffalo and Samuel L Jackson. The other ones I dont care that much for TBH.

  • Roscoe

    Cap. America looks like an 80′s tv movie, Hawkeye looks just bad and Thor looks like he is wearing a peace of plastic. The Cap. Outfit in his movie actually looked good ( can’t believe tey pulled it off) so the choice to change totjis makes me doubt this whole movie. Looks like. Joke.

  • kirk

    I’m don’t know why people are going gaga over this. Must be a ton of fanboys out there. There’s nothing impressive with this photo or the trailers so far. Looks more like Fantastic Four than a good superhero movie.

    • AlexHeyNa

      Yes! Thank you! I thought I was the only one. Zero hype from me…

  • kirk

    If you show this photo alone, I bet most people would think it’s cosplay.

    • Mik

      I can’t stop laughing! This comment made my day.

  • Mark

    Well they’ve managed to undo all the good work the CA:TFA team did with Cap’s costume, turning it from something gritty and practical into some bad cosplay.

  • Roscoe

    The makers of this film should have thought about trying to make things look good on screen and not what looks good in comic books. Cap. Looks bad.

  • wha..wha..what?

    Cap’s suit looks horrible. Did they steal it from the early 90′s movie?

    • Sean

      I don’t know, the one from the early 90′s looked less awkward than that one…though obviously cheaper as well.

  • Rockslide

    I’m excited for this even though everything thus far is a little underwhelming. I’m not really a whedon fan so his directing has me the most scared. I have to agree with probably everyone on the planet in saying that Cap’s new suit looks terrible. I loved the previous one. I get that they are trying to make it feel more modern than the WWII one, but I’d have to say they failed. I won’t go so far as saying its as bad as Shaq in Steel, but that was the first thing that came to mind, haha.

  • Strong Enough

    Lmaooo this looks like complete crap. You could have made this movie into something that changed cinema and the way action was shot. When you think avegners you think “revolutionary film” not captain America and friends fight Loki. Smh

  • lovetron

    Wow, that mask is god-awful.

  • rickytariq

    I think this movie will catch ppl by suprise. I agree tht the suit sucks, but i bet when he’s in action itll look better and u wont even think about it. There’s are alot of things tht whedon is choosing not to show which will catch all of the movie goers and avengers fans by suprise. So dont get all caught up on the suit, the movie itself will be better than green lantern, amazing spiderman and ghost rider combined which isnt saying much but…you know what i mean. Itll be a good movie trust me.

  • Kevin

    Photos never do this film any good. Every pic of Hawkeye makes him look like queen. And I don’t mean that as a general term for gay– I mean, this guy is a queen through and through. He should just shout, “Hey girrrrl!”

  • Andrew

    Ouch. With every new piece of PR stuff I’m less and less excited about the movie.

    I kinda wish they’d gone with the overlapping scales for the upper half of Cap’s outfit, like they do in the comics — would’ve looked like the DragonSkin armor they use in the military. And if Evans wasn’t gonna remain as pumped up as he was in the first movie, they should’ve built up the suit a little to compensate…

  • kfalcon

    Scarlett kicked ass when she had to and maybe Whedons script will allow her to do the character justice. she does look freakin’ hot in the costume though.

  • Daniel

    So this is just a picture of the three during a costume and hair test, right?

  • terry

    I have a feeling this movie is going to come up very short
    And off topic, where is the teaser trailer for Zack Snyder’s Superman?
    Are I haven’t heard a thing, not one f****ing thing about the movie in months.
    Anyone care to chime in.

    After Green Lantern and Sucker Punch, there’s probably a lot more adult supervision (ha) on Man of Steel.

  • spongefist

    Someone stole Scarlet’s stash of pies, and she is not happy at all.

  • slinky317

    My god that mask is awful. What is Whedon thinking?
