It feels like comic book movies are beginning to take over the world a little bit, with DC now finally beginning to try to compete with the might of Marvel. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is already huge but it continues to get bigger and better every single year, with a number of new characters being brought to the big screen.
We already have a number of impressive Marvel comic book characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but, while new ones are getting their own movies, there are still some current characters that have yet to have a stand alone film. Following the huge success of The Avengers movie, fans have called for a new stand alone Hulk film, while it was recently reported that Scarlett Johansson could get her own Black Widow movie.
One character who appears in The Avengers, and will return for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but has not yet had a stand alone movie is Hawkeye. Actor Jeremy Renner has appeared in the role of Clint Barton aka Hawkeye in the Thor movie, as well as The Avengers, with his third appearance coming in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will we ever see him get a stand alone film?
It was claimed that Hawkeye was being dropped for Avengers: Age of Ultron, before then being claimed that he would have a very small role in the movie. However, Joss Whedon has since confirmed that Hawkeye has an important part to play in the Marvel movie.
With the amount of characters that are getting stand alone movies these days it would only seem fair to have a Hawkeye stand alone film. With that said, Marvel have a very busy schedule ver the next few years so, even if a Hawkeye movie was to be made, we would still have many years to wait for it to hit the big screen.
Would you like to see a Hawkeye stand alone movie?
