That parody was brilliant. There have been a lot of fan comments about the Widow being "lame" and not deserving to be on the team, but fewer about Hawkeye. How many times has someone asked, "Why is the Black Widow even on the team?" Robot Chicken picked up on that and played with it. (Renner does have a great ass, though. )

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
