    Agreed about Comedian :up:

    Are V and Zorro even known as "superheroes" though?

    Yeah, until you guys brought him up i totally forgot he shot his pregnant girlfriend and tried to rape a female superhero. holy crap i was gonna dress up as him for halloween as well, buy a cigar and everythin, but i don't want the good townsfolk following me down the street shouting 'represhensible sh**tey man, don't give him any humbugs!'
    But i have to say, that bit where he punches the woman with the anti-superhero placard is a good laugh. c'mon, don't be sexist.


    They might dress up in capes and masks, but are not included in the general superhero pantheon because they, in fact, wear hats. Don't ask me why but if you wear a hat you can't be known in the superhero dictionary as a superhero. Maybe it is because people assume they are cowards to show their bald patches or something, dunno, are they in fact a pair of baldies?

    I, personally, would never count V. But a lot of people probably would.

    As for Zorro, yeah, he's totally a superhero. I mean, all the trappings are right there:

    Wealthy secret identity
    Mask/Costume
    Symbol
    Underground Lair
    Sweet ride
    Signature weapon
    nefarious villains

    True about Zorro, but I guess I never thought of him as a superhero, but maybe it's because I've never known much about the character to really think about him being one as opposed to just some liberator of sorts, such as V.

    Funny about Comedian(no pun intended), but I just finished watching Watchmen earlier tonight.

    just leave it to whedon, killing people is what he does.

    I have a feeling that Captain America will die(temporarily) in Avengers 2.

    No. The rep comes from him killing characters off in shocking sudden ways in literally every thing he does.

    http://www.pajiba.com/think_pieces/...g-one-of-the-directors-most-common-tropes.php

    Heres a good article about his signature writing tool. They list him as killing off 21 major characters and they didn't even bother to include Cabin in the Woods
    where everyone dies.

    I see Hawkeye dying too actually. He seems to be the most insignificant member of the Avengers right now and wouldn't be surprised if that "type" is killed off in the sequel.

    Plus with all the crap he's been talking they might just write him off. Nobody cares about his character except him and like ten people

    Now if they wanted to make an impact they would have black widow pass away. That would get the movie buzz

    Just that he deserves more lines. He was upset that hawkeye spent most of the movie as a villain and didn't get much to do. What did he seriously expect. You're hawkeye for gods sake. If anyone should be upset about how their character was used it should be captain.

    Well that angered me too. Hawkeye is used as a villain for the most part and was a ridiculous plot of having him be some goon for Loki for most of it.

    Hawkeye will not die. NO! He actually has a huge fan base.

    Maybe he's thinking of the doctor on M*A*S*H, lol.

    But seriously, I think the most likely major superhero to be killed off on film in the near future will be either Superman in a live action adaptation of The Death Of Superman, or Robin in a live action adaptation of A Death In The Family.

    Superman. The sequel might want to go dark (as all sequels do) and include Doomsday's arc. With the third film being Brainiac with the cartoon notion of him having helped destroy Krypton to bring everything full circle. After TDK Nolan and crew seems like the kind of guys who would love going there.

    If we ever get a Captain Marvel film, I think Mar-Vell would be the first generic/proper type Superhero to die on screen...
