Don't let your home screen fall into a rut — switch out your wallpaper!
Wallpapers are important. They can give our phone a new feel, even if only for a little while. Some of us change wallpapers as often as we change shirts (sometimes to match), while some of us set one wallpaper and forget it, and that's a shame. A good wallpaper can be a pick-me-up, can remind us of better times (and upcoming times). They can show off what's important to us, be it a picture of the grandkids or an emblem of your favorite house in Game of Thrones. In an effort to brighten your screen, and maybe your day, we present an offering of wonderful wallpapers to grace your smartphone.
If you've got a wallpaper you use everywhere, share it in the comments below! We're always looking for something new. Now get your wallpaper picker ready and see what's in store this week.
1. Hawkeye by Arian-Noveir
Everyone thinks that all there is to Hawkeye is sharp eyes and a borderline unnatural talent with a bow, but that's not true. Like Widow, Hawkeye is a master of deception, subterfuge, and all kinds of combat. As both spy and sniper, Hawkeye has been trained to blend in, to make you look him over so he can shoot your eye out. This wallpaper pays tribute to that chameleonic trait of the purple archer. It also pays tribute to the classic mask that we'll probably never see in the MCU. At least I get it in the cartoons....
2. Scarlet Witch by xxiiCoko
Scarlet Witch may not be quite the mutant we know and love from the comics, but I'm happy she's sticking around in the MCU, especially now that her hubby Vision has a body. Vision and Scarlet Witch are on opposite sides of the war, but I'm hopeful that they can come together before the war's over.
Speaking of Vision, can we all just take a moment and cheer that Paul Bettany finally gets to really act on screen in a Marvel movie instead of just being a disembodied voice? Yeah, his debut was in Age of Ultron, but he didn't show up till Act Three and he didn't get to do much besides lift Thor's hammer and smash some Ultrons in Sokovia.
4. The Winter Soldier by ColnChen
Bucky has been through the wringer. While there's a lot of wallpapers out there that can catch the brutality and badassery of the Winter Soldier, few capture the broken soul within. This wallpaper, this frame, these eyes... They try your soul just thinking of what those eyes have seen, and what they've been forced to forget.
5. War Machine by burtthefly
James 'Rhodey' Rhodes is one of Tony's closest friends, but if the trailers for Civil War are any indication, Rhodey may not be long for this world. Pour one out for War Machine and the man inside who tried to keep Iron Man on the right path.
