This isn't fair.

He got to have like 10 minutes of screen time (while being himself). Calm down, you people are acting like Hawkeye has been in three movies so far and he has still been lackluster.
Thus far he's been like the guy on the championship team that gets a ring but he rode the bench. Agent Coulson has made more of an impact and he's just a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent. With the stories only getting bigger and more characters being added I don't see how they are going to be able to give Hawkeye the proper attention he deserved leading up to and just after the Avengers film.
@vance_astro: funny that you said that since in the movie a morals on black widow defeated a bloodlusted hawkeye without getting a scratch, so if she can take him so easily what makes you think that he deserves more to be an avenger than her? i mean she was an essential part to win the blattle, she recruted Hulk, saved Hawkeye, outsmarted Loki, and was the only one who took the time to try and close the portal, so idk how can you think she was out of her league when she was the one that actually saved the day along with tony.
My point wasn't that Black Widow is out of hear league it was that she's easily replaced. If she wasn't there to do anything she did in the first Avengers film those tasks would have just been given to Hawkeye.
I thought the early action scenes with her in Avengers were done well, but her fighting the aliens wasn't. She was totally out of her league while tony, thor and hulk were doing all of the work. All it did for me was ruin the sense of scale of the battle. She was perfect in Winter Soldier though.
They were alright. Nothing super impressive. Cap & Winter Soldier themselves were so good in the Winter Soldier I almost don't even remember any scenes she was in. Aside from the one where she kisses Cap on the escalator so they won't be spotted.
@vance_astro: Watch some of his interviews.
I also agree we need more Hawkeye. I mean it's easy to understand you doubts with JR in the role when they haven't even let him play the actual character yet.
I've seen quite a few of his interviews but thus far the writers/director has gone for a more serious Hawkeye.
