We need a Hawkeye/Widow/Fury/Hill/Coulson SHIELD prequel movie. It needs to be darker, more complex, and more story driven than the Avengers movie. It needs to have lots of espionage and superheroics combined.

I agree and it doesn't need to have a super big budget.

I'd be first in line for that movie. Avengers did a good thing by lightly touching on their pasts, and Hollywood does have a nack for wanting to explain pre-stories now days. Of all the characters and films that could make an interesting prequel, this is the one I'd want the most.

This is something an RPG friend and I have decided to play out, and I really like where our story is going. If it doesn't end up getting deleted by the site-owner, I'll give you a link when we're finished

This is great, reading all of these positive comments about Renner/Hawkeye. i'm so totally looking forward to him in this one. Then, in a few short months, Renner will be back in Bourne Legacy.

If you like the loner mysterious but bad a%$ type of characters then you'll like Hawkeye. And BTW, he might be the greatest archer portrayed in movie history ever.

I really liked how they handled the whole "how does he always pic THE RIGHT arrow?" thing...since that was my only concern about Hawkeye...

All of the actors completely embodied their characters, and Hawkeye is one BAMF!!

Yes, that arrowhead system was very cool. One of the best, unexpected details of the film.

If he's going to have his own movie, at least give him the sense of humor that the Hawkeye 616 have

I wasn't really a fan of 616 Hawkeye that's why I enjoyed the taciturn bad ass loner attitude Renner and Whedon gave the character.

Part of me wishes they used that badass compound bow from Thor rather than the weak looking "folding" number he used in this movie that wouldn't likely throw an arrow twenty feet, let alone accomplish the kind of accuracy he achieved throughout the movie. Pulleys and wheels just make everything better. And also, arrows don't work that way, flying straight and and flat like that. "Straight as an arrow" is a misnomer, since they wobble like a sonuva***** in flight.

Yeah, yeah, this is a movie with an Asgardian "god", a flying powered armor powered essentially by magic, a Hulk, and a gravity defying supercarrier that can turn invisible, but suspension of disbelief doesn't work as well for less fantastical elements in a fantasy.

Also, I read somewhere Jeremy Renner actually practiced how to do archery when prepping for the role, but Whedon or some other member of the production team didn't let him use the technique. That's a shame. I haven't done archery in years, but every time he shot something I was all "That's not how you draw a bow!"

Black Widow was owning soldiers while sitting and tied on a chair. Hawkeye is a superhero archer, he don't need no proper technique. He doesn't even look at his targets. I'm totally fine with Hawkeye not having proper technique. The same way Im fine with Widow owning guys while tied to a chair.

The arrows were all CGI, so Renner's technique didn't matter so much as performing the stunts properly and getting the shot -- with a camera, not a bow. And he looked badass while doing it.

Ok, I might be alone here, but even thought he wasn't cracking jokes, I totally got that "smarta$$" vibe from Hawkeye; am I the only one?? It might have been something really subtle in Renner's performance (which is the thing I enjoy the most in actors/acting), the residual feeling from his scene in Thor or maybe it's just me seeing things where they're not...am I the only one?? I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow that I'm watching the movie again...

Default Re: Jeremy Renner is Hawkeye! - Part 1

The other day when I was out back practicing, I actually tried to have a go at drawing and nocking like Clint (but a hundred times slower of course) - just couldn't make it happen. To draw the arrow from the quiver by the nock and shelf it while trying to get the nock anywhere close to the nocking point while keeping the bow vertical is just impossible.

So I'm perfectly happy to let all his technical imperfections slide because even the first part in combat is pretty much beyond belief.

Oh yeah, and cams and sights and stabilisers do not make everything better - IMO as an amateur recurve archer, compounds are nancy bows that remove pretty much all the human skill; and Hawkeye aint going to let some mechanistic gimmick take the credit for his prowess.

Hawkeye REALLY surprised me. I kept hearing everyone say that they were disappointed by the ammount of attention his character got, so I was surprised to find that he really gets quite a large share of amazing moments. He came out being my 2nd fave of the film. just under Cap

Definitely want to see more of Widow-Hawkeye relationship. I want to see their origin in a prequel! No super powers, just pure espionage. It needs to be grittier and more grounded and complex than the Avengers. A great way for Coulson to come back as well.

Forgive me if this has already been covered but.....Why is it that in the movie Thor, Hawkeye shoots his bow right handed, but in Avengers he is left handed?

He got some nice moments toward the end of the movie, and was indeed quite the badass, but I do wish they hadn't removed him from the proceedings so early. Even if he only had gotten a couple of smaller moments, I think the film would have been better served having him controlled later on in the movie, and not mindless for much of it. He and Black Widow did have a few nice shared elements.
