Hate takes effort and caring.  You don't hate someone you don't give a shiat about.

Dear NYPost: "You and I remember Budapest very differently."

I like Hawkeye a hell of a lot more than the New York Post.

Meh, they'll do the old bait and switch with this one again. Just you wait and see.

Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney so you can probably guess what Avenger is hated most by the parent company.

I Iiked Hawkeye in the MCU. It's a pity Jeremy Renner is a piece of shiat.
 
2021-07-29 8:19:12 PM  
Maybe subby, but I'm still going to watch it. As far as I'm concerned, they've been killing it with 3 for 3 great MCU shows so far. And I have high hopes for What If?

So I'll give Hawkeye a shot. Never know, might be good. That was pretty much my attitude going in with Falcon and Winter Soldier and I ended up liking that a whole lot.

Favorite so far - Loki, but Wandavision was damn good too.

"Ugh... this character I don't care about is getting a show..."

Hahahaha fark off. I don't know much about or care about Hawkeye either. But these writers and producers have been pumping out amazing shows. It's gonna be great.

I feel like I've missed some news - I just remember that Jeremy Renner did some stupid shiat, not evil shiat.  What red has he got on his ledger?

I like Hawkeye as a character. He's like the anti-Captain Marvel or the anti-Wanda.

The writers use the powerful characters as deus ex machina delivery devices, but then write in accuses why they can't just fix every problem. It is predictable.

The weakest characters (Hawkeye) has to be written cleverly and made to be incredibly competent so as to justify him belonging in the movies at all. He is a more interesting and less predictable side character than other side characters.

First off, it has Kate Bishop, who is far and away the superior Hawkeye.
Second, it has Yelena Belovna, who I didn't care much about until I saw "Black Widow", and Pugh is excellent in it.
Third, if it is even partially based on Matt Faction's Hawkeye run, it will be very, very good.

I dont remember anything bad about him. But I could be wrong.

I think he just isn't a great off-screen personality? He took off with Hurt Locker (not a huge career before, maybe Dahmer was notable?) and I think ppl get buyers remorse on him a lot.  Oh and I remember someone outed him for using Viagra.

I really don't remember anything serious just a mediocre dude maybe? Which can be harsh enough in Hollywood.

Allegedly, while drunk one night in the midst of his marriage falling apart, he put a loaded gun in his mouth and threatened to kill himself, and then threatened to kill his wife.

He denies it happened and there are no police reports or arrests to back it up, though an acquaintance claims to have seen it.

Also, in the midst of a bitter custody fight, his ex-wife has accused him of drug abuse and abusive behavior.

I'm not aware of him being charged with anything, though that doesn't mean the allegations aren't true.

The thing is that the ex-wife has been accused of some sick crap as well, i.e. exposing the daughter to porn (she about 8 years old now) and stealing from her trust fund.

Soooo since there are no police reports or arrests. the whole he said/she said divorce/custody bullshait can all be chalked up toooo *Drumroll Please*....He said/she said divorce/custody bullshait.

There was an interview where he and Chris Evans made some pretty sexist jokes about Black Widow (the character, not their co-worker ScarJo). Evans publicly apologized, Renner didn't even try.

95% of her character is "do sexy poses in a tight suit, seduce guys by being all sexy and stuff".  The superhero-level combat stuff comes later... and is kind of ridiculous since her superpower is 'lots of training and having a hysterectomy'.

I mean, they set it up in the Black Widow stinger.  Not all that surprising.  It was also probably announced a long ass time ago when they did the massive content drop.

You're not wrong, but it was more mean-spirited and slut-shaming.
 
2021-07-30 12:09:43 AM  
My only exposure to Hawkeye outside the MCU was from The Ultimates. Where he kills people by ripping off his fingernails and flicking them. They can make him cool if they wanted.
 
2021-07-30 12:19:42 AM  
I could've given two shiats about the scarlet witch but that show was farking cool

I really hope they take this dull, weird character and turn him into a guy that has his own rock band and social network
 
2021-07-30 12:34:35 AM  
I like Hawkeye in the Avengers movies. Compared to the other Avengers he's Joe Normal. Compared to anyone else he's an Olympic level athlete with mad assassin skills.

And in The Avengers he had the second-best takedown of Loki with the times explosive arrow. Iron Man just blasted him the once, Thor actually got stabbed, and Black Widow and Cap never came close to him in combat.

/The best, of course, was "Puny god"

Considering what's shown in the movie Black Widow as well as her conversation with Bruce Banner in Age of Ultron makes it pretty clear that the hysterectomy was not a procedure Romanoff underwent voluntarily. So calling the hysterectomy "her superpower" is taking it just a bit beyond facetious.

Also, based on her and the other Widows capabilities, there may have been a cut-rate version of the super-soldier serum involved. Russia had their own version from Hydra.

Because people over analyze and inspect every second of every day of anyone with any level of renown.

People would be a lot happier if they stopped looking into the real life of actors, and just dealt with their work products. Actors are just people. Some people are mean, some are shiatty, some have different political views than you. I'm not sure why people want to know that about everyone, including people they'll never meet or interact with.

I think the entire point of that article was for the NYPost to, for some weird reason, throw mis-placed shade at Renner.  The headline bashes the character, yet the article is the usual Disney fluff fill.  I don't get it.  Now if the Headline read "Abuser Renner Targets his own TV show," that I could get.
