How come Hawkeye is the only character from the Avengers movie that won't have a movie lead-up movie like everybody else has? I think when people watch Avengers they'll be able to obviously recognize Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America... but they're gonna say "Who's the guy in purple?"
Why no pre-Avengers "Hawkeye" movie?
Hopefully the movie will increase his popularity. It's strange that before I started getting into comics, I remember Hawkeye being pretty well known even with non-comic readers, but I had no idea who Daredevil or Ghost Rider were. I guess time hasn't been kind to the character.
" Cause Hawkeye is sadly not as popular. I mean, his book, Hawkeye and Mockingbird, is canceled. ALREADY! "Couldn't have said it better. I get the feeling he's going to be for the Avengers movie what Black Widow was to Iron Man II.
A few things:
1. We don't know for sure if Hawkeye will be even waring purple, lol
2. For those of you saying that he's not popular enough, then how do you explain the Ant-Man movie on the works?
3. It's still early. For all we know, Hawkeye will be a hit for the moviegoers watching the Avengers. If people like him enough on there, maybe they'll give him a shot of getting his own movie.
4. Jeremy Renner is signed on to play Hawkeye in multiple movies just like everyone else who signed their contracts. Maybe Marvel's considering it right now as we speak.
Hell, a movie about him and Mockingbird would be killer... but they're not going to include Mockingbird in there (meaning Avengers). I just read the first issue of H&M and I loved it... will be reading the other five and I'm saddened that it got cancelled. I just recently got into comics... had I started earlier, my bucks would have gone to this series, and maybe, just maybe, it wouldn't have gotten cancelled. :) Personally, I feel that Marvel cancels series way too early.
