    Why does Black Widow look constipated this whole movie?

    I like how 4 of them have super powers or fancy stuff then you have hawkeye with a bow and arrow, and the girl with a freaking hand gun at the end of the trailer.

    Technically, IronMan has no super powers either.


    Anyways, some gifs.

    to be fair to those two, they are more of a reconnaissance role/behind enemy lines .

    Now did anyone else catch Jörmungandr in the end. He looks smaller than the comic book version, but still badass. I'm guessing Loki is going to bring him from the middle realm along with a bunch of other baddies

    I see you gif'd it:

    Hawkeye's the one that makes me laugh. He carries, what? A dozen arrows on his back? Better hope he does not run into 13 bad guys at once or he's fucked. :laugh:

    EDIT:

    It is interesting how different Marvel and DC frame their top super hero teams. The JLA us typically loaded with the DC's powerhouses. The icons of the universe. The Avengers on the other hand has a wide variety of power levels and often features heroes who don't exist much outside of the team in the Marvel universe.

    I don't see why Hulk had to catch him, he could've hit the ground and would have been fine, since we've already seen him take a big fall before and take a very large shell from a tank, with no scratches.


    I can see why people who don't think in terms of what Hawkeye can do would laugh at him. Like I said before, and i'm sure others will attest to, Hawkeye does not jump in the front of the line looking to get smashed while he draws an arrow, he's there as a traditional soldier, a sharpshooter, behind enemy lines, picking off baddies and creating opportunities for the rest of the avengers. His arrows are not traditional, they are weaponized, and useful to certain situations or against certain enemies.

    That huge thing at the end is supposed to be the snake who kills Thor, Jörmungandr??

    What I want to know is where's Black Panther? After Iron Man, then Hulk, he's the only worthwhile person on the goddamn avengers team.

    Those were my thoughts exactly.


    Also if anyone deserves to be on the Avengers, before Black Panther it'd be Henry Pym, Wanda and Pietro

    I think it might just be your perception; Green Arrow, Atom, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Black canary, Elongated Man just a few of the more well known but lesser characters. JLA has a core of heavy hitters much like The Avengers but there are plenty of others. I think at one time or another just about every hero in the DCverse has been in the JLA I would guess it has a far larger roster than the Avengers. I seem to recall an animated JLA where they had almost every superhero on the JLA satelite at one time.

    My perception is that Marvel has far more teams than DC or more lasting and succesful ones anyway.

    Yeah but he's not really a full time Avenger similar to Namor, Namor is also the shiz.
