Hiding in plain sight at Comic Cons quickly becoming vogue among celebrities – Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson went to this year’s San Diego Comic Con as a demon jester, Ryan Reynolds hid beneath a Dart Vader Mask and both Daniel Radcliffe and Maisie Williams snuck around as Spider-Men. Among the news breaking on Day Three of New York Comic Con, was the fact that Lauren Cohen will be returning to AMC’s The Walking Dead, which the network announced was greenlit for an 11th season. Ruffalo, who plays the Incredible Hulk in Marvel’s Avengers films, took his three children to the convention and didn’t have to sign as much as an autograph, thanks to the nightmarish Groucho Marx-ish mask he was wearing. Both Mark Ruffalo and Jared Leto were able to stroll through legions of fanboys unnoticed at New York Comic-Con on Sunday thanks to a bit of crafty cosplaying. Leto meanwhile went one further and rubbed the salt in a little harder, posing for a photo with one oblivious fan who had dressed up as the Joker – the character he plays in the upcoming Suicide Squad. One is Maya, and the other is dressed in a fancy Splinter Cell-style stealth suit.
It initially appears that she’s teamed up with Maya, suggesting that Maya’s unseen boss (Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, maybe?) is working with Val. She’s in charge of the Tracksuit Mafia’s silly goons and determined to get revenge on Ronin, but we get hints that she has a shadowy boss. Clint tracks down Maya’s underling Kazi (Fra Fee), who apparently knows all about the big boss’ goals and can dissuade Maya from her mission of vengeance. Although a cartoon character, Harley Quinn rises above that and can appeal to women on another level as a comedic lovable and mischievous character much different from the joker. Clint and Kate go to Maya’s apartment to retrieve a mysterious Rolex, but are attacked by two women. We already know that a vast majority of women this Halloween will wear Harley Quinn costumes to parties, bars, and out trick-or-treating with their kids. Clint’s wife, Laura (Linda Cardellini), manages to juggle Christmas family time with helping out her absent husband, discovering that Jack is the CEO of the Tracksuit Mafia’s front company. A Pennywise costume is perfect for all the horror fans out there…
If you’re tired of the same old things you have been wearing every other year, you need to find a sexy Halloween costume that’s right for you and have the best night of your life. The 47-year-old even broadcast his uneventful stroll through the crowds via the video streaming app Periscope, much to the subsequent lamentations of fans who saw themselves walking right past Dr Bruce Banner himself. Everyone loves a sheet ghost – even Lady Gaga (pictured above). When you and your friend go as Batman and the Joker, there are dozens of hilarious hijinks, foiled attacks, and pranks that can make Halloween a hilarious and memorable experience. It’s possible they’re trying to undermine the Avengers, starting with Clint, so they can replace the heroes with their own people. I love to dress up as super heroes for Halloween, but this year chose to be one of the Villains from DC comics. Hawkeye mocks the idea of boomerang arrows in this episode, but uses them in the Fraction comics run.
After last week’s magnificent car chase, episode 4 of Hawkeye hit Disney Plus Wednesday. Did you know that 61% of Americans had spent more than 8 billion dollars on Halloween costumes last year? She’s ultimately unmasked and revealed to be Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), last encountered in the Black Widow post-credits scene. Florence Pugh also took to social media to post a video reaction to Yelena’s entrance, and it’s pretty delightful. This is the new Nurse Harley Quinn dress inspired by the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum. Not unsurprisingly, Joker and Harley Quinn were popular cosplay characters this year. But nobody has yet managed to top Bryan Cranston’s epic cosplay as Breaking Bad’s Walter White. As for Cosplay events, as fans of Harley Quinn already know, gives everyone a very good excuse to walk around town dressed up as their favorite bad girl! While this costume is clearly inspired by the Joker, it has so much going on that I don’t think you could truly call it a Joker costume, and it’s certainly not Harley Quinn.
