Should Hawkeye get his own movie?


“ Hey, Avengers? Where’s the cake and brass band, huh? Hawkeye’s Back! ”

Here he is on the cover of an Avengers issue. Hawkeye, the guy with the bow you’ve seen in Thor and The Avengers isn’t any S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, he’s actually a super hero in the comics. He doesn’t have super powers, but he’s damn good with a bow. Anyway, the point here is to discuss if he deserves a movie or not. Can Marvel Studios make a good Hawkeye movie that people would love? Or will this movie be a flaw in their decent movie record since 2008?

Since he didn’t play a big role in Thor, we should focus more on his appearance in The Avengers. He was controlled by Loki, and basically gave the Avengers one hell of a time. He was a good villain in fact. His role didn’t end here though, he then gained conscience again and kicked some real Chautari ass. Not to forget the awesome explosive arrow that blew up in Loki’s face. That was a pretty awesome surprise!

His appearance in The Avengers comics and movies apart, Hawkeye appeared in a bunch of other comics, in which he was the main protagonist. We have Solo Avengers, Hawkeye and Mockingbird, Widowmaker, Hawkeye: Earth’s mightiest Marksman, Captain America and Hawkeye… In addition to all those, our marksman had his own series of comic books, Hawkeye (certainly).

Considering the fact that he has his own comics, and that he was the main protagonist in many others, Hawkeye can have a movie of his own. However, I think that we’d like him better if he was in a team, therefore it can be a little risky for Marvel to make a movie all about him. But common, who doesn’t want to watch a movie where the purple Robin Hood is a main protagonist? A Hawkeye and Black Widow movie perhaps? I think that a film like this one can be promising, and Marvel Studios will certainly make it a good one.

On the other hand, wouldn’t we also like to see Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in some episodes of Marvel’s upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? That would be cool.
