"Hawkeye" should have gotten the role of Flat Top
 
2012-05-08 05:05:53 PM
Thor and Cap were definitely jocks in High School
Iron Man looks like a young Scott Baio (probably in band)
Hulk: Obvious teacher's pet
Black Widow: Cheerleader
Hawkeye: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA kid never had a chance

So is there a reason Legolas was thrown into the story with no explanation whatsoever?

Yes, I stole the joke.

Hawkeye was part of the Avengers in the comics from time to time. I know some people wonder why two low power people like Hawkeye and the Black Widow would be in the comics or the film (for the "wet work" [they are assassins,] and actual spy-type stuff, they are good,) but really the only characters that aren't vulnerable to a random headshot are Hulk, Iron Man and Thor. I suppose Wonder Man and Vision among others in the comics aren't in that danger either.

I do wonder what good Hawkeye and Widow would be against some like Thanos or Ultron.

I know they're actual characters, but I was asking why they were added without any kind of backstory? Usually films don't assume you know everything. But seriously, bow an arrow with apparently C4 attached that detonates on impact? That part may have been the least realistic part of that movie, and that's saying a lot. Also that his quiver magically changed from one to two holders in the middle of battle.

This is tangential, but did anyone sort of wish that we got the alien Nazi Chitauri instead?

Hawkeye was in the Thor movie and Black Widow was in Iron Man 2. That's all the backstory you're going to get. Neither character would have been strong enough to do a movie of their own (although there has been some talk of a Hawkeye/Black Widow film now.)

Basically, Marvel wanted an Avengers movie, and it would be pretty weak with only four Avengers in it, so they slipped Hawkeye and Widow into two of the bigger pre-Avengers films so they would have a legitimate reason to use them in the Avengers film.

Well, legitimate to everyone but you. :)

I think they're also there to give people a "normal" person to relate to and offer some commentary/contrast to the lives of the super powered people.
 
2012-05-08 07:47:22 PM
I thought it was a masterful job by Whedon to give those characters some weight and utility in a movie where the superpowered folks are taking on a demi-God and an invading force (not a spoiler...it is in the God damned trailer!)

Even Cobie Smulders' character got some decent action and screen time.

Whedon had thought of her as the lead when he was attached to the Wonder Woman feature film. Once that project fizzled, I think he still wanted to work with her (probably has a crush) so he brought her into the Avengers.

There hasn't really been a place to shoehorn in Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, or Namor. Plus Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four are owned by other studios. Black Panther has been referenced, though. At the end of Iron Man 2, when discussing the Avengers with Nick Fury, you can see a target in central Africa, i.e. Wakanda

I knew Johanssen's character. I hadn't ever seen Thor, but I was told that Arrowboy wasn't in it. That explains that.

I would imagine that Scarlet Witch was licensed to Fox along with the X-men IP.

Okay, let's go at these pictures one by one...

-Chris Evans looks like the kind of guy in high school who would tease you mercilessly until you developed an eating disorder.

-Robert Downey Jr. has a serious Scott Baio thing going on, like scottydoesntknow said.

-Chris Hemsworth seems like he's constantly and thoroughly baked out of his mind. If he's not stocking up on snack cakes and Doritos, he's listening to a shiatload of Rush tapes in the garage.

-Mark Ruffalo appears to be the overly sensitive big guy in high school that you don't taunt out of fear that he'll snap and beat the crap out of you for mocking his feelings.

-Scarlett Johansson is always smiling because she has no idea what's going on around her.

-Jeremy Renner, well... what can I say that hasn't already been said by his mullet?
 
2012-05-08 08:33:40 PM
Hawkeye looks like he'd be pretty cool back in 1983.
 
2012-05-08 08:34:44 PM
Though he technically isn't part of the Avengers,I'd expected to see a scowling,afro-sporting Samuel L. Jackson.

Plus, they probably seemed like better choices than the two founding members of the Avengers that were left out: Ant-man and Wasp. Those two are both somewhat problematic, for various reasons.

Heh, pretty spot on.

It frightens me that I'm the same age as Thor and Cap. Those pictures may have been changed to black and white, but they were taken in the mid 90's.

Avengers 202, Hawkeye actually saves the day by swinging into Ultron from behind, knocking him into a vat of acid.

Hawkeye should be in the film for no other reason except he's cool. In the comics, Clint is cocky and aggravated until he forms West Coast Avengers with Mockingbird.

Whedon had thought of her as the lead when he was attached to the Wonder Woman feature film. Once that project fizzled, I think he still wanted to work with her (probably has a crush)


So why didn't we get any shots of her barefoot?

I couldn't take Thor seriously because he always reminds me of Axl Rose as a LARPer.


BTW, Farkers are usually spot on about good movie recommendations so when I saw a lot of positive mentions about "Planet Hulk" I rented it. Unfortunately it wasn't that great. Just too many things didn't make sense in the story.

Yes, yes, we get it. You're more intelligent and mature than everyone else on Fark, as evidenced by your dripping disdain for anything comic and/or movie related that more than two other people on Earth actually like. Go back to masturbating to your Daniel Clowes collection and let the rest of us actually get some enjoyment out of life.

Alright I watched this movie. I'm gonna have to say it was boring. On the superhero movies I've already seen rating, it gets an Iron Man 2. spoilers follow

Problems:
No villains. Thor vs Hulk, etc is best relegated to Hulk v2 #257 when they just have nothing interesting to print. Apart from it being a basic premise in the movie, (good old mind control) they ran this trope about 4 times. When the villains finally came out, they were faceless, voiceless, militant aliens whose "homeworld" is a big spaceship. I felt like they had more motivation than anyone else. Loki was an asshole for not teleporting them to Wyoming, where they could build and prosper. Loki, BTW, got his ass handed to him by one hero in the previous flick. Now that he's got a laser spear they need to team up?

No story.

Shield Shield Shield.

More people died in the Incredibles. Nick Fury & Black Widow, both mere mortals, one of whom is 65, each leapt out of at least 3 exploding vehicles without a scratch. In the beginning sequence, even Hawkeye shoots bullets that never hit their target.

The McGuffin was lame and last seen in Transformers 1, which heavily inspired this movie.
No editing. Not every character needs a scene explaining how they feel about what happened in the previous scene. Maybe this was a contractual obligation.

Hawkeye didn't need to be in this movie at all. They turned off his mind for about an hour, thus shirking any character development for the guy who shoots at things. Like he needs it.
The Hulk is dangerous! The Hulk is a force to be reckoned with! Loki wants to unleash the Hulk to kill about 45 minutes during Act 2! When he actually shows up, the Hulk is fairly level-headed and easy to deal with, as usual.

The climax. Honestly, this is the bit everyone came for. If you show up 90 minutes late, you haven't missed anything, because it's just been lazily tiptoeing toward the big fight that lasts an hour anyway.

To summarize, for those who don't feel like reading the whole thing: He hates that other people like the movie, so he felt the need to spend half a dozen paragraphs trying to convince everyone why a comic book movie didn't make any sense. The End.
