Hello everyone

Seeing the new Avengers film trailer and Hawkeye sans a mask, it struck me that on film (and ultimately on TV when a transition happens), doesn't the lack of a mask put into question the need to show off the actor's face against the need for a secret identity. After all, in this celebrity orientated world, how long do you think it would be before the press has everything about you in the newspapers?

So which do you prefer?? I've given some options above. Let me know if I've gotten any.
