The Marvel Cinematic Universe owes a good deal to Hitch's designs on certain characters notably the likes of Nick Fury, Captain America, and Hawkeye all of whom have a more military-like design compared to the colorful outfits they otherwise wore in the 616 universe. Bryan Hitch is also notorious for most any book he draws running into delays the worst of it being both volumes of The Ultimates and the issues of Age of Ultron he illustrated.
- The Authority (1999-2000)
- The Ultimates
- Captain America: Reborn (2009-2010)
- Age of Ultron (2013)
- Art Evolution: Compare his early work to his later work and you'll notice when he started incorporating his signature elements of his craft that would get him hugely noticed.
- Scenery Porn: His widescreen panels especially incorporate a lot of this trope.
- Schedule Slip: Many of his works had delays, either because of its detailed arts or because of real-life events. The Ultimates had delays because of the birth of his son, two house moves and one office move. Hitch stresses that Marvel was more supportive of him during his tardiness than DC.
- Self-Adaptation: He was a character designer for the animated films Ultimate Avengers 1 and 2, based on the Ultimates.
- Signature Style: Wide-screen action scenes and highly detailed outfits are what he's best known for.
