He would've completely made up for it during the battle in NYC. Jokes upon jokes upon jokes while shooting aliens and when he shot at Loki. Still the minor role he and Widow had but a bit better than what we got.
At least then it would've been warranted when Marvel had the nerve to say Hawkeye was the breakout star of Avengers.
I don't know, I guess his type of character is just not needed (it's practically the Deadpool, Flash, Hal, etc... persona) especially with RDJ there throwing his own jabs, even if it was Reynolds I am just not sure he could hang or he will just be underwhelming. I guess a banter between the two could work well but I am just not sure it is needed as long as RDJ is there.
This is true but I wouldn't mind him being there to be the sarcastic smartass that jabs and throws quips at all of the eggheads. Kind of under mind them in a way. I mean I see this type of dialog in the Avengers cartoon and certain comics all the time. So I can see how it'd work.
Reynolds was really good in Safe House. One of the reasons it's worth re-watching cuz he doesn't **** up the plot and you actually can get in to the situation his character is in. Complaining about Denzel is irrelevant, he was the reason ppl went to see the movie and part of why it was good but not the sole reason.
He was also really good while he was stuck in that coffin buried alive.Edited by Master Zik - 1/2/14 at 4:31pm
