And that's why a cameo like that is useless: it does nothing to let people *out* of the know (non-fanboys) who this guy is or that he's important to another movie; and it pisses off people who *are* in the know (fanboys) because he didn't do anything really in character. If he'd fired an explosive arrow or something, the scene would've been more of an actual intro to Hawkeye.
