Yep... But I was thinking maybe Mockingbird should be dead... Maybe her death is the reason for Hawkeye to save Black Widow...
I know many might disagree but she was dead in the comics for a very long time... So maybe that can be used in the films. If they ever decide to do a BLACK WIDOW origin story, maybe Hawkeye and Mockingbird get sent to kill BW, but Mockingbird persuades Hawkeye to keep Widow alive... And it's this decision that ultimately leads to Mockingbirds death. I think this would also put a little more gravitas to the whole "I OWE HIM A DEBT" speech she gives Loki.
And also if they ever do decide to go the Secret Invansion route in the films, the they can always re-introduce Mockingbird...
