you cowboy around with the avengers some. guys got, what, armor, magic, super-powers, super-strength, shrink-dust, grow-rays. magic. healing factors. i’m an orphan raised by carnies fighting with a stick and a string from the paleolithic era. so when I say this looks “bad”? i promise you it feels worse.
Like no Patrick Wilson’s not gonna play HAWKEYE in the new Ant-Man movie. Recasting it because he wasn’t in it much is stupid what’s the point then? (I’ve made a giant post about this last year lol.) And then to call him the least charismatic and then give Patrick Eric O’Grady as the number one choice. You mean the creepy Ant-Man who’d sneak into women’s showers? You’re talking to me about charismatic?
I can’t believe people are still recasting Hawkeye in the movies like y’all really don’t want Renner in these movies for some reason. It’s not a good look and it’s not the beginning of 2013 anymore, home boy’s been bulking up again so keep trying.
Just finished Hawkeye #15 (THANK YOU SNOWY) and Birdie pointed out something truly mind-fucky.
Kate’s dad’s the one trying to buy the building, right?
Kate’s dad was trying to get her out of town. They don’t have a very close relationship, but when she was upset and needed to get out for a while, he asked her to come with him ON HIS BOAT. Where he could’ve, y’know, controlled whether she could even get to land. She said no, went to the other side of the country, and the MOMENT SHE ARRIVED AND NO SOONER, her credit card ends up cancelled.
Madame Masque knew where she would be, and knew about the card, and we’re led to believe that she had the card cancelled, or at least had the guy at the hotel say it was. But the fact is that it’s never actually SAID that Masque was the one who did it. She just knows about it.
Clownface McHitman had been gathering info on Clint, obviously. He had pictures of Clint’s girls. He’s MET KATE, and works for her father. Her father stands to earn a LOT of money on this project and LOSE a lot of money if it falls through, same as the Russians.
You guys - what if Kate’s dad was the one who cancelled her card once he had word she’d hit California? What if Kate’s dad is - if not ‘in on it’, which I doubt - at least AWARE that they’ve been trying to solve this problem… we’ll say “unconventionally”, and that his daughter was a regular visitor to the building? And that she’d be in danger if she happened to be there when they decided to solve it?
What fucking if?
This actually makes an exquisitely nasty sort of sense, because if you take a moment to remember aaaaaaaallllll the way back to the beginning, in #2 Kate cheerfully tells Clint that Bernie Gunn (the shady ass who owned the hotel) was a family friend, he bought her a pony, and he has always been a creep.
Squint at the newspaper page that talks about the hotel (on the same page as the pony comment), and it’s not just background art, it says 'Why should Midtown house everyone that wants to come to New York and spend a little money?' — and ding ding, all of a sudden the plot point of 15 (raze a huge chunk of Brooklyn to build posh shopping center) isn’t even remotely random and neither is Clint’s entire ‘relationship’ with the Tracksuit Bros. (Like in #6 - 'Is one thing to futz with us, is another to futz with guys we work for..')
Holy shit, Fraction is playing a long game here.
I love everything in this bar.
…I am worried about Kate.
I hate everything in this bar, why am I even in this place, oh my god.
Falcon finds Hawkeye. They greet in the usual manner.
-How’d you find me anyway, Sam? I’m supposed to be undercover. Sorta.
-Pfff, as if you-
-Wait, Cap? What were you doing with Cap? You didn’t invite me?
"Okay.. This looks… completely ridiculous." - Hawkeye #15
