"This is just like Budapest all over again."
"I don't see how that's a party."
Out of all the characters Hawkeye had the least screen time but that really was not a bad thing since he was not a main character. However, Hawkeye did have enough character moments and building to make the character work. He was used in the battle excellently and proved that he is useful in a fight, unlike what some had predicted. His relationship with Black Widow was more professional or fatherly not romantic like the comics, which was good because a romantic subplot would have made the plot over stuffed. The costume was translated in the big screen very well. It had some of the colors that the original costume had but looked very practical, although it was influenced by the Ultimate version of the comic.
"Captain, it would be my genuine pleasure."
While I am still a fan of the original white Nick Fury since it is original to the comic book. Although Sam L. Jackson was awesome! Sam L. Jackson makes everything that he is in better, that is just a fact. An interesting fact is that the the Ultimate comic book version, which I will probably explain more about in a later post, of Nick Fury was actually based on Sam L. Jackson's appearance. So you really could not have a better actor than Sam L. Jackson to play the role. When use he used Agent Phil Coulson's blood covered Captain America trading cards to give the team "a push." and then it was revealed that Fury added the blood to the cards, it added another interesting layer to the character.
"I recognise the council has made a decision, but given that it's a stupid-a-- decision, I've elected to ignore it."
Agent Phil Coulson
As I said above there are major spoilers! If you have not seen The Avengers go watch it right and come back read this post.
One most shocking plot twist in The Avengers was the death of Agent Phil Coulson. He was in the first Iron Man movie. But he was created for the movies and is not original to the comic book (he has recently been made into a character in the comics). He is a very likable character and adds great humor without making it seem out of place. In the beginning of the movie Coulson was ever better and more likable, which made his death even more impactful. The decision to kill off Agent Coulson was a very bold move by Joss Whedon but it made The Avengers much more serious. Although I really liked the character and his interaction with Captain America was great and hilarious. Killing him off did make the movie better and added a more serious tone to the film. There is small chance that Coulson did not die and that was a L.M.D. (Life Model Decoy), which
"I gotta say, it's an honour to meet you, officially. I sort of met you, I mean, I watched you while you were sleeping. I mean, I was, I was present while you were unconscious, from the ice. You know it's really just a, just a huge honor to have you on board."
"Thor: We on Asgard pretend that we are more advanced, but we, we come here battling like Bilgesnipe.Agent Phil Coulson: Like what?
Thor: The Bilgesnipe, you know; huge, scaly, big antlers. You don't have those?
Agent Phil Coulson: Don't think so.
Thor: They are repulsive, and they trample everything in their path.
Cobie Smulders as SHIELD Agent Maria Hill. Maria Hill is second in command to Nick Fury of SHIELD. The character will be much more important later if they decide to go down the Marvel Civil War route, but that seems unlikely at this time. Although she was not used much, the parts she have were good.
LokiAfter coming off an excellent performance as Loki in Thor, Tom Hiddleston delivers again with an even better performance than his previous performance. He stole almost every scene that was in. Loki is a very unique and multi-dimensional villain. Tom Hiddleston has actually made the character better in the movies than he was in the comics, which almost never happens. Loki is a difficult character to bring to the big screen but Hiddleston did it perfectly. He played him as a tragic victim of circumstance character that was is not too far from redemption. One of the things that The Avengers got right was that Loki is a trickster that can control the mind. But in the comics Loki is behind-the-scenes villain, hopefully in the next Thor movie, he will be the mastermind behind the plot against Thor. Loki and Thor have the ultimate "Sibling Rivalry", which is makes for great conflict.
Loki: [Touches his Tesseract staff to Stark, which only taps against Stark's arc reactor with no effect] That usually works...
Tony: Yeah, sometimes it has complications.
"You will kneel before me!"
"I am Loki, of Asgard. And I am burdened with glorious purpose."
"Are you ever *not* going to fall for that?"
