Could it be successful? Who should the villain be? Any cameos from other Marvel character that should be in the movie? Share your thoughts.
Hawkeye solo movie..
@rschomber said:Agreed, it was the perfect cameo and even though he had like only two lines, you could tell he had a little Clint Barton sarcasm in him xD
i really enjoyed the short part he had in the thor moviei know right, i was geekin out!!!!
Villian: Like really is there a need for this? Obviously people like jayskee have been paying attention to Clint's history. Why not at it throw in phantom rider to add that something extra.
Supporing character: Mockingbird (of course)
I would Love to see a Straight to DVD animated movie about Hawkeye. Animated movies have done well for me story wise. Villian: Like really is there a need for this? Obviously people like jayskee have been paying attention to Clint's history. Why not at it throw in phantom rider to add that something extra. Supporing character: Mockingbird (of course)Why would you throw mockingbird in the mix already? if anything it should be close to his origins to when he was in the circus and have black widow as his leading lady. then you work in mockingbird
ARE YOU KIDDING?!
Why waste time making a movie about something that everyone should know. This isn't Spider-man or Wolverine where you need to rehash origins stories like poping caps off of beer bottles.
Look you could do his origin at the beginning and have him working for shield with black widow and have a love affair with Mockingbird . Maybe you dont need to have Phantom Rider in there.

Just look at Iron Man and Thor well known characters that still had an intro, but they could always pull a Hulk and have the start of the film be flashback shots of Clint before Hawkeye.
I think that a Hawkeye movie would be great. I think that it would be well received from fans and bring a new audience in as well. But in order for someone to really understand the character there has to be a point in the story that catches people up on what's happened in his life to make him who he is and why he does what he does. Hence an origin story. Now should it be the whole movie like Wolverines hell no. But it does need to be in there. You can't just base a movie's success off of what you think it will do with fans of the character. You have to bring in new people and hook them in order for it to be a success. Harry Potter did that with people that liked wizards and s**t. I for one don't like HP I think its boring. But to each his own. Every movie has to be able to attract not only fans but new additions as well. Without an origin story to learn about the character you have no way of drawing the attention of the crowd.
I think depending on the Avengers movie after that they could do a Hawkeye movie. Then the fan base might already be partially built up. I think Jeremy Renner is going to make a good Hawkeye judgeing by his cameo in Thor.
I think that if they did an animated movie of him it would do really well. A live action one though I don't think would work out. Because, unfortunately, when you bring up the Avengers I don't know too many people that say "is that the group with the guy that has the bow and arrow?" its always "oh yea that group with the Captain America or Iron Man or Thor.
Definitely, especially with him being an agent of S.H.E.I.L.D..............could be like a Bond movie, that focuses on Hawkeyes marksmanship
Jeremy Renner is the hotness in Hollywood currently, he is much bigger than everyone in the Avengers movie as of right now in my opinion
Maybe if the film had about almost a good half on his childhood with Clint and Barney growing up with an alcoholic father. How their father broke down the family with constant physical abuse and verbal abuse (thus why Clint hates being told he cannot do something.) . His sarcasim comes from his inner hatred for his father from what he does to the rest of his family. Using punch lines to take beatings away from their mother. then the subsequent death of both mom and dad. Barney and Clint being thrown in the a orphanage by the state court system. them running away. Then while trying to survive find the traveling carnavel thus getting jobs and hiding from police. Then Clint getting mentored by Trickshot and Swordsman. IDK that could be a basic idea for a film.

He's not bigger than RDJ by a longshot, lol.
There could be a shield movie with a team of hawkeye, black widow, sharon carter (maybe), falcon (a shield agent with special anti-gravity technology and limited TP) and nick fury (he will not be on the team but will say what their missions are). Maria Hill could also be featured but not on the team.
oh and Mockingbird should also be on the team.

thats arguable, he is not as well known, but he was in MI3 about the same time Sherlock Holmes was out, which, preformed better.....he won an award for his performance in the Hurt Locker and he will be in the upcoming Bourne films
Well, I doubt Renner's name had anything too do with the overall success of Ghost Protocol. The three main factors that attributed too it's success were:
thats arguable, he is not as well known, but he was in MI3 about the same time Sherlock Holmes was out, which, preformed better
- Positive word of mouth-The film was, surprisingly, one of the best reviewed films of the year, and critics and audiences alike universally praised every aspect of the film.
- Tom Cruise is still a recognizable star.
- It was the fourth film in the franchise, and the marketing campaign was far superior.
It would be possible if it was about him and his brother i think. Like growing up together in the circus and learning archery but the brother and him fight and years later like after the Avengers Hawkeye learns about his brother and goes after him to fight him. Be cool to have a few cameos by the Avengers team in the beginning and have Nick Fury helping him along the way and also have Mockingbird constantly appearing to him leading him to his brother....
@TheCheeseStabber: I would love to see both Mockingbird and Crossfire in a Hawkeye movie.
@Illuminatus @cattlebattle : After seeing Thor and Renner as Hawkeye for thoes small clips he was in. The lines would have been the kind of things Clint would say. Renner gave thoes lines a "Meh" preformance. Don't get me wrong he is still a great actor. But when in an interview you hype up the character your playing and get his name wrong and even in a total of 53 seconds your on the screen put something into it. They gave him the role purley on star power. I am not expecting much out of him in the Avengers. I would have love to seen Jensen Ackles as Clint because he fits the bill for clint's personality perfectly.
@Trodorne Maybe on the Matt Damen
@Omegus: and my rebutle sir. (see above)
In general, Id love to see a Hawkeye movie. but at the same time im not a fan of selling out a character to the general market cause lets face it regular people are stupid. they do not deserve to appreciate the characters like we do. I know it sounds very high brow and snobbish. but who really appreciates the characters. Us or them. At most all the movie will do is get people to say he is awesome, buy a t-shirt or make a pretty good video game. but will they care about the character later on or end up reading the comics? more than likely not at all. If anything give me a straight to DVD animated movie starring hawkeye like those Hulk Vs, did.
I could see this working as a Mission: Impossible, James Bond, or Bourne Identity type spy movie. It could actually be cool. They'd have to make it more espionage then super-heroics, which I'm fine with. They're more likely to make a movie with him and Black Widow though.
@PowerHerc said:I don't know if Marvel would ever take the chance on making a Hawkeye movie but I do think the character is interesting enough for a good movie to be made.
Do you feel the same way about it now after seeing the Avengers film?
I loved the "Avengers" movie but no, I no longer feel like Hawkeye could carry a solo movie.
Hawkeye is a good and interesting character but Marvel would never do a solo movie for him.
Yeah, they would cancel the movie half way through filming.......BWWHOOOAAA!
.................get it because they cancelled his first ongoing and said it was a mini......BWHOOOAAA!
I think a Hawkeye movie would be awesome, but now with Jeremy Renner as the new "Bourne" I doubt we'll ever see it. But you never know, if The Bourne Legacy does well it could give Marvel Studios something to ponder, but it wouldn't be until after the next Avengers movie since the studios plate is pretty full right now.
I really still think a Animated film would hit the right spot for me. Have a trilogy with animated movies. Plus fans aren’t disappointed by disappointing roles *COUGH* Renner *COUGH*. Sorry I had a Jeremy in my throat, I mean what? That was weird.
