      No profile on Black Widow? Not surprised, the words 'surplus to requirements' spring to mind

      Hawkeye was supposed to be 'Dead' at one point, maybe that's what you were thinking. I for one think that regardless of the outcome of the Avengers movie, the idea behind setting all of these movies in the same universe and linking them together is a brilliant move and a long overdue one in Hollywood land. With the amount of dire cross-overs that have been attempted in the past (i'm look at you AvP), i'm just glad that they've started from scratch with the intention of linking them together. The only downside i see is that it would have worked a lot better as TV shows - get a lot more in that way. The Civil War storyline is prime material for a mini-series.

      Ha SiMan, that could well be it and totally agree, I'm quite looking forward to this now. Watched Iron Man the other night (thought the sequel was pretty lame) really good fun movie and off to see Thor this week!!

      Hawkeye has died in the comics, but was brought back (like so many other Marvel heroes over the years) as another character in The New Avengers. The Ant-Man film is planned for 2014 (I think) with a view to introducing the Pyms into the Marvel-Movie-Verse ready for possibly inclusion in The Avengers 2 (which will undoubtly happen and be greenlit at 9am on May 5th 2012 - lol) Each film links/crosses over into the others (so far) so any further stand-alone films I would imagine are gonna be considered part of the canyon and would somehow be worked into future projects. I do love the idea of a Civil War mini-series, that would be fantastic, characters would be given more development time in a TV series, but the budget would be smaller although I still think they could really do it justice that way. However it's more likely that the concept of Civil War might be used as a storyline for an Avengers sequel ... giving the team some major internal conflict as Iron Man & Cap go toe to toe with each other and The Avengers fracture into two separate teams. It could still work in a smaller two hour movie, but they'd have to crop the story something fierce. And are we ready for Speedball on the big screen? Maybe his more serious/cooler alter-ego Penance would be better? lol

      @ChrisWootton, you're right about Hawkeye's hearing impairment. Just prior to his marriage to Mockingbird, in order to escape from a villain known as Crossfire, Hawkeye had to use a sonic arrow which damaged his hearing (Hawkeye Mini Series comics published 1983). He was then using hearing aids, until the Heores Reborn event. When Franklin Richards returned the heroes to existence, he returned them as he remembered them, so Hawkeye's hearing was no longer impaired (comics published around 1986).
