(SPOILER) New pictures from The Avengers: Age of Ultron set. Images of Hawkeye's new costume and what seems to be Ultron's mask design have surfaced.

I don't know about Fury having less of a role. Black Widow and Hawkeye aren't super-powered, just exceptionally well-trained. One could say the same of Fury.

ETA: I think it probably has more to do with the fact that there are a ton of characters in this movie who need screen time.

I was hoping to see what they were doing with Cap's outfit personally. As I really liked the Avengers outfit.

I mean out of all the outfits Cap's had so far. I vastly preferred the Avengers outfit. It was the closest (outside of the brief USO one that seemed to deliberately sabotage the mask, to make it more of a joke..) to looking like an actual Superhero outfit, in the tradition of Chris Reeves Superman and the like.

I don't get all the love for the WWII outfit. It's too bulky, dirty looking, and I can't stand that chin strap. (Which to make matters worse the comics have now went out of their way to looks dumb in both formats to me!)

One of my biggest regrets about my conversation with Joss was that I didn't try to defend the Avengers outfit. As when he mentioned it, he seemed to be very conscious of peoples criticism of the cowl. So I have a feeling now that he's going to bow to 'public' pressure there and just have Cap wearing the WWII outfit, so as to give the internet critics less to be up in arms about. Wish I'd given him some feedback that 'hey, no the Avengers outfit was a step in the right direction.' Less Zips and maybe some ears or wings on the cowl, and the star on the back again and it'd be perfect. IMHO.

Also I really hope there's a moment in this where we get to see 'Cap's Kooky Quartet' together in action.
