Embracing that comic book silliness by making hawkeye custome nearly all black, widow custome all black and generic as hell and making asgardians aliens?



So no color then.
I can't believe a spy character called Black Widow wears a black costume.

Also, your point about Hawkeye makes no sense. His costume in the movies looks exactly like his Ultimate costume in the comics. That costume isn't brightly coloured. No one said all costumes have to be brightly coloured, but if they are in the comics, it's ok to embrace it.

Also what's the issue with Asgardians being aliens? They're still campy dudes in capes being dramatic all the time.
 

I'M FINISHED!

Um exCUSE me Sakurai but CLEARLY the best choice for Smash Bros would be my fav niche character HOWEVER you are clearly INCOMPETENT and

Liking that Deadshot costume. Hopefully the mask survives past the opening credits.

Ashur is on Arrow too?! DC's just locking down the entire Spartacus cast.
Not just Arrow and Flash. They managed to get both versions Naevia. The first played Copperhead on Gotham and the second is Amanda Waller on Arrow. I was really disappointed that Agents of Shield cast Lucy Lawless this season. Was hoping one of the DC shows would have been able to get her to add to the Spartacus alum list.

The thing is, the Ultimate 'verse is all about moving away from the "ridiculousness" of the 616 'verse. Or at least it was when it started, things went pretty badly off the rails shortly thereafter.

Sure, but that's one costume. Hawkeye was a SHIELD agent in the films, it would make sense for him to have his Ultimate costume. Captain America is Captain America, having a bright costume is part of the gig.

Need a comparison for those that live and die by the Arrow version.

I love Arrow but the Will Smith version is a LOT better.
Arrow DS looks like he's from a TV show and Will looks like he's from a movie. All is right in the world.

Didn't Will voice a fish in Shark Tale? I'm sure he can live with people not seeing his face for a section of the film.
lmao you could argue he demanded his face be in that too, have you seen that fish?

anyways I think he'll most certainly wear the mask in major action scenes and without it in downtime stuff.

Doesn't seem to be taking itself too seriously at all.
Yeah nothing about this seems to indicate taking itself too seriously. Look at Katana. Look at Boomerang. Look at Harley. They're having fun. Just maybe not the sort of fun some prefer.

Crazy that out of all of the male actors on the show Jai Courtney gets the most high profile work.

All look pretty good to me, a few look like their outfits are a little too clean, Killer Croc is hard to tell how well done it will look.

Right, but my point is that it undermines the whole "comics should embrace the silliness" argument by pointing out that MCU Hawkeye's costume is based on a 'verse that was all about dodging the silliness.

And the problem with Cap's costume is that it's hideous, not that it's bright :p

Will Smith's gun and collar has text; assuming it fully wraps around, the full quote would read, "I am the Light, the Way, and the Truth" akin to John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life."

So who wants to take bets on who gets their head blown off 10 minutes into the movie to show that Waller is the boss.

I was afraid Harley Quinn's look would be influenced by the shitty New 52, juggalo Harley. Ah well. Smith looks decent at least.
