Default Re: Will Hawkeye Still be a Part of SHIELD in AoU?

In any event, I'm just trying to come up with a simple, logical excuse for Hawkeye's complete absence in the Phase II movies (every other Avenger, and practically every other major character from that movie, rates at least a cameo in a Phase II movie, but not Hawkeye....?), and an excuse that provides for a pretty cinematic reintroduction to Clint in Avengers 2, featuring the Avengers leading a jailbreak to bust him out for a shot at redemption.

What would *you* guys prefer? That they just say, "oh, he's been off on a mission somewhere" and leave it all offscreen? That's sweeping Hawkeye under the rug. That's lazy writing. And that's boring as hell.
Him being off on a mission still makes more sense them some bullcrap trial scenario. I'd rather the writing be lazy than it be stupid and nonsensical.
