To anyone who thinks this maybe old news. It's not. It's relevant & seems to be a recurring issue (At least to me anyway). Iron Man's is mandatory thankfully but, I could swear Marvel Studios is constantly thinking of ways to show him in the armor but without any head protection. Cap's mask was odd-fully removed by a Chitauri (SHITauri). In the Avengers, when Cap takes over the Chitauri hostage takeover, When one of them has Cap in a headlock, You'd think he'd try to snap Cap's neck, yet. Of course, he just pulls of his helmet instead. And even when Cap, jumps out of the building because of the bomb, isn't the mask still attached to your costume? "Meh, it got torn off ..." If your reading this & thinking that I want they should have killed Cap, no. Obviously he's an iconic character & that can't happen. At least not possibly until A future Avengers movie where the plot is similar to Civil War. Point being, when in an enemy headlock, enemies should try to shoot you, not pull your mask off.

Hawkeye doesn't have one & Thor's is probably still sitting exactly where he left it in Thor 1. Seriously, In everyone other media, Thor wears a helmet. & He's STILL ISN'T wearing one in Thor: The Dark World. I'm always hoping that in the next live action representation of Thor, I will finally see that glorious silver winged thing of beauty sitting atop Hemsworth's head while seeing set pics. EVERY TIME, I get disappointed. Before the Avengers, Hawkeye ALWAYS wore a mask. Now ever since the movie in comics, cartoons, Straight to DVD movies etc. his mask doesn't exist anymore. especially if you see him in something produced by Marvel anyway. But, funny thing about that, his mask is still represented in a PORNO! Seriously, He has a mask in the Avengers XXX. In a youtube video interview at the movie's set I saw the interviewer talking to the porn director & the porn actor portraying Hawkeye, they both mention Hawkeye's mask. The director said that it should be faithful to the comics. A faithful... PORNO? So why can't the big screen movie do this??? Before you think I don't know any better, yes. It's porn & obviously isn't/shouldn't be taken too seriously & has the ability to mess around & not develop characters without it looking silly because ah who cares... It's porn. That's not the point. The point is if a porno can take it seriously, then why can't a Hollywood movie do the same??? I seriously want to see Hawkeye's mask in Avengers 2 but somehow, I know I'm setting myself up for disappointment. In the Avengers XXX movie, even Thor has a helmet. In every low budget Avengers adaptation, these characters wear their masks/helmets. So please someone tell me, I'd really like to know... Can someone PLEASE give me some or any incite as to why Marvel Studios hate/have against Masks & Helmets?

@MikeStark: It's mostly because they don't want the actors faces to be obscured I think, also not everything works that well on screen. I don't think Thor's helmet from the film would've worked in The Avengers personally. Though I agree I wanted to see the helmet being worn during The Avengers in the last battle or something.

Eh. It doesn't really bother me to be honest. I've been saying for a while now that Cap should lose the mask, and Thor's helmet should really only be used during intense battles (along with some badass armor. I will say, though, that Hawkeye needs his sunglasses.

Hawkeye doesn't need the mask, he just needs the shades

Can you say Badass?

But yes, Thor should have his helmet.

Make Ant-Man's helmet into a cybernetic enhancement that's inside his head.

OKAY people,common sense here....but the short version is that not everything in comics looks good in movies.

If Hawkeye wore that retarded s*itty mask,people would laugh. Thor's helmet is not only unnecessary,but silly when I think of how it would actually look.The way it looks in ult. spiderman looks cool,but movies are movies and cartoons are cartoons.

I agree i don't like the fact we have to see their faces and the fact that Hawkeye doesn't have a mask,I do like the way there doing with Ironman showing his face in the helmet

The only part of this that actually bothers me is Thor not wearing the helmet most of the time. And even then I stop caring once I see him in action.
