that's been the general consensus for literally all my non-comic fan friends.
Fanboys look up who people are far more than non fans
And yet I'd be willing to bet if Jeremy Renner had fired some trick arrow and did some outlandish "holy ****!
" shot with it, your friends and the rest of the general audience would become VERY interested in the character. Far more so than just watching him threaten
to fire an arrow, and then not.
*That's* how you sell a character. Marvel Studios did *not* sell the character (Hawkeye, that is) in Thor.
