Really not liking the newer cap outfit
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Can't really blame Hawkeye for that, I guess, but not too subtle.

Chris Evans looks substantially less buff and the new Cap suit looks like a pair of jammies.  I'm still excited for this movie, though.

Please.  She got reduction surgery.  Why not just spit in God's face while you're at it?

Hey, cut Cap some slack.  He's like 80+ years old in the Avengers now.

I agree. After seeing the Captain America, the Avengers Cap looks like he's dressed in his USO tour version of the costume. Big step backward.

Yeah, I'm not seeing any credible evidence of this happening.  Let's hope it is not true.

I don't read the Hollywood rumor boards, but my theory is that she's lost weight to be more fit for the role.  Plus the suit is compressing.

Cool pictures Brian - thanks for posting.  I got a little schoolgirl giddy just looking at Cap and Iron Man in the same scene on that first picture.  I love that Hawk and Thor are in there too, though I'd much rather see Wasp and Giant Man in place of Hulk or Black Widow.  No offense meant to Scarlet - it's just that the Black Widow has always been more of a spy character than a super-team character in my mind.  I always felt like Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne provided more character driven storylines, with their rocky marriage issues, Janet coming from money, Hank being a flawed husband and hero, and obviously the creation of super baddie Ultron, which leads to characters like Vision, Jocasta, etc. 

I guess the Black Widow can provide some connection back to SHEILD, and maybe even a question of her true loyalties if she has to choose between the two.  But I completely forgot that Hulk was going to be in this and find myself extra annoyed at his involvement..  Is anyone else bothered by Marvel's determination to promote the Hulk?  He's had two failed movies, doesn't seem to be high in the Avengers fan base, and his powered-character doesn't seem like a good fit for a super-team.  I hope they somewhat stick to the comic origin, using Hulk to initially bring the heroes together, then quickly drop him from the lineup.  Hopefully characters like Vision, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Black Night, Wonderman, Ms. Marvel, etc. can take his place in the sequels.

I agree Justin, I'd rather have seen Wasp and Giant Man as well...stays truer to the origin as well.  I also like the angle of Vision as well and would love to see that in a sequel (and no Vision can't be some super computer or lame cloud thing...he must be an android)

I'm really hoping (that is, if the Avengers does well) that we'll see more of the team in the sequel.  I really think that Wasp, Ant Man, and Black Panther would be the next ones added to the roster, but I guess you never know.  It seems like, from what I've read, that Marvel has hopes of a Black Panther solo movie at some point, so it would be a good way to introduce him as well.

I wonder if the size changers were purposely left out because they weren't confident in their ability to show the size change on film?  Does anyone know of other live action movies where they've successfully shrank or grown a character?  I'm sure there are examples, but none come to mind. 

I could honestly do without the Panther.  He doesn't bring much to the table in terms of powers, so with somewhat unpowered characters in Widow, Cap, and Hawk, I'm not sure what he adds to the table.  Same story with Swordsman, Mockingbird, Tigra, or other low powered characters.  I would definitely like to see the size changers come on board, and they could easily build a plot around Wonderman, Black Knight, or War Machine coming on board.  Even Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be nice additions.  I'd think they have to include another woman or two on the team - it's a bit lopsided with just the Widow, especially when you compare to what they've done with X-Men (Storm, Jean, Mystique, White Queen, Rogue).  Maybe we'll see Ms Marvel or She-Hulk strut their stuff in the sequels.
