From what I've seen in that new japanese trailer, all of my fears regarding Hawkeye have been put to rest. He looks as badass as he should.

I never was. There's been some hullabaloo about their lack of powers but character-wise Hawkeye and Black Widow are right up Whedon's alley, maybe even moreso than the big guns

My concerns came from the sheer number of characters in the film. With so many major players, it would be very easy for some to get short shrift despite the best intentions of the filmmakers.

Indeed but Joss is great with juggling a large cast, it's probably the biggest reason he got the gig

So I totally geeked out at the Japanese trailer (and I'm at work *lol*) - one thing that got me, HAWKEYE SPEAKS!!! Okay, it was like one teeny tiny little line, but STILL *lol*

If he was replaced, I wouldn't mind. He looks nothing like Clint in the comics. He's more of a normal Ben Grimm.

I'm sure he will do a good job in this movie. But I do like it when they try to match the charcaters' appearance.

Don Cheadle was close match to Rhodey


Ed Norton was a better match for Banner

"I got him."

I never doubted Renner would own this role and the more scenes we get, the more I get pumped. Clint is the definition of classic Avenger and I can't express enough how glad I am that they're displaying his badass nature. The trailer was great, nice shot of Hawk and Widow in the Quinjet as well.

Hawkeye's one of the things I'm looking forward to the most aside from the entire film. Bring it.

I love all the extreme low angles Whedon is using to shoot his heroes. Makes them look like Gods. That super low angle of Hawkeye from the Japanese trailer may be the best one yet.

I'm glad Hawkeye finally got a line in the Japanese trailer, even though it is shorter than the one Maria Hill got.

I just read that. It was annoying. It's a ****ing movie. He's a fictional archer. Everything about a movie like this is very deliberate. I'm certain that the way Hawkeye is using his bow is entirely on purpose, for either dramatic purposes or perhaps it was just easier during filming. That was some grade A nitpicking that guy was doing.

It's called a shameless plug to get that dude's archery company name out there. Honestly, it's such a non-news worthy item I'm surprised that io9 went through the trouble to write it up. Hopefully the do a sequel piece with a real alien telling us why the movie aliens wouldn't wear that kind of armor.

It was the same nitpicking I did when I reviewed the BRAVE and HUNGER GAMES trailers, the same nitpicking I did when I interviewed Corey Burton and Jeff Bennett and Will.i.am. I write about geeky things that geeky dads and their kids are interested in, and the page views indicate that my posts were popular.

I hate to say it, but you're wrong; the archery in this film is no possible way deliberate, it wasn't easier and it serves no dramatic purpose. It's a display of ignorance and apathy, and as I said, I'm certain it was painful for Renner. What he was doing hurts like hell, and doing it right looks better. He just didn't know any better and neither did Whedon.

You're right, it is a non-worthy item and I'm surprised io9 picked it up, but they did. I wrote it for Wired's GeekDad blog. Other people write about novels and Legos and Dr Who, and I occasionally write about archery, as well as Disney shows, movies, and various other topics, pretty much anything but videogames (I'm not a gamer). In the past year, I've written four articles about archery; it just happens that three movies about the subject are coming out soon, and since I know the topic, I get to cover them. Next week I'm writing about Doc McStuffins, a new show for little kids on the Disney channel.

I have to ask though, what archery company? I plugged Pasadena Roving Archers, a non-profit organization that gives free lessons. I don't get paid for teaching there, I do it because I like it.

No, he's been providing "nitpicking" of archery in comics for years. Its not something new. And note that he himself admits that a lot of his realism complaints don't actually matter, mostly just the "broken wrist" posture and the forearm injuries.

Something he doesn't mention, that he probably should consider, is how many scenes involve CGI-ed archery with no arrows in hand.

You had me at self admitted nitpicking. Completely lost me with the rest.

Not... really. Visually, at least.

.
So you're saying that a film like this, that features a main character who's claim to fame is archery, just said **** it when it came to the archery? I'm not buying it. Film making is a very deliberate thing. Besides, who gives a flying **** if the archery isn't perfect. That's not going to make or break this movie. Hawkeye looks awesome doing Hawkeye stuff. 'Nuff said.

Aliens.... (advance beings from another world)

I am undecided where hawkeye is concerned in this movie, he's bad*** in the comic books and I hope they do him justice in the movie.
