All gaming companies should listen to their fans more often, and Square Enix with its Marvel's Avengers game is the true example of that statement. This title is anticipated to be one of the hottest video games in this year 2019, as this is a booming year of Marvel and MCU. All three movies of MCU this year have gathered more than one billion dollars worldwide revenue, with Avengers: Endgame becoming the most profitable movie of all time from box office revenue.

With so many advantages like that, everybody expected that the game Marvel's Avengers by Square Enix would be wholeheartedly welcomed by the fans of Marvel. However, when the first images of this title were revealed at E3 2019 convention in June, all fans of Marvel immediately had the negative feeling with this video game. The main reason is that all the characters in the game were designed terribly. These characters looked nothing like the actors and actress that have portrayed them on the big screen, and to be fair, these characters in the game looked ugly.

Of course, the fans of Marvel did not let this go quietly. There was a lot of criticism sent to Square Enix, but the answer the fans got at that moment was somewhat sounded like "deal with it." Thus, this game has kinda gone quietly too, because gamers now have many other great titles to focus on and to wait for, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Cyberpunk 2077 ...

That is why in the gameplay video released at Gamescom 2019, the design of the characters in the game has been slightly modified. If you don't take a close look, you might not realize the changes. But then since in Marvel's Avengers of Square Enix does not have Hawkeye, so a fan has to play that role to spot the differences between the first design and the modified design for the characters in the game. Is the modified design better? We leave that question for you to answer.
