It’s the resounding question that Avengers: Infinity War fans are asking as the new trailer and poster for the Marvel Studios film takes the internet by storm. Why is Hawkeye — a founding member of the Avengers and a fellow fugitive on the run with Captain America and Black Widow — nowhere to be seen? Maybe he’s busy playing house with his wife, played by Linda Cardellini, and their kids. Maybe Jeremy Renner decided to rejoin the Mission: Impossible franchise after all (hah, nope). Maybe something dire happened to him. When the new, jam-packed poster for Infinity War debuted this morning, fans of every Marvel character had something to be excited about.

But there are two superheroes noticeably missing. Six Things Every MCU Superhero Has In Common. Almost nothing about the world and behavior of comic book superheroes as popularly imagined in the Gold and Silver Ages of the medium (i.e. the 3-4 decades during which a solid majority of currently-viable characters were created) makes any kind of logical sense.

Six Things Every MCU Superhero Has In Common

Even Batman, one of the most “plausible” characters (in terms of foundational conception), requires the suspension of disbelief necessary to believe that the most wealthy and famous man in a single city operates (nightly!) As a vigilante in an animal costume wielding elaborate high-tech gadgets for years on end without being found out by either the police or any of his enemies.

Dc. The Surprising Origin Story of Wonder Woman. “Noted Psychologist Revealed as Author of Best-Selling ‘Wonder Woman,’” read the astonishing headline.

The identity of Wonder Woman’s creator had been “at first kept secret,” it said, but the time had come to make a shocking announcement: “the author of ‘Wonder Woman’ is Dr. William Moulton Marston, internationally famous psychologist.” Will 'Goddess of Death' Cate Blanchett solve Marvel's female supervillain problem?

The degree to which Atomic Blonde takes any of this business seriously is an open question, given how little time is spent on political and existential chin-stroking and how much is devoted to fetishizing the era-specific fashion, interior design, and New Wave music.

Based on Antony Johnson and Sam Hart's graphic novel The Coldest City, Atomic Blonde opens with Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron), a MI6 spy, debriefing her superiors about a sensitive mission gone awry.
