A Hawkeye/Black Widow movie with a similar take to the new 007/Bourne movies would work very well in my opinion.

Who care about accuracy to real archery though? Come on. The stuff he was doing was stylized archery, comic book archery. I thought Clint was awesome. Loved how he was the eyes and ears of the team in the final battle. And for a guy with a bow and arrow, he kicked some ass.
We already know a character like his and Widow's in a battle with a "cosmic" foe is unrealistic. It isn't the point. It was all about eye candy. Loki catching the arrow and failing to notice the explosive was hilarious.
Yea i loved the way he glanced over to Hawkeye's direction with this smug smirk. Then boom!
That being said, I saw a cute Target commerical last night where these kids are dressed as the avengers. You only had the big four (Cap, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk), so I still think Hawkeye has a way to go before he reaches the status of his team-mates.
His own solo movie (or one where he teams up with Black Widow) would certainly help.

Yes. But in the A;EMH He is a fun character. Unlike in the Avengers toon from the 90's. That one was a big jerk.
The guy in the movie was bland and dull. His dumb little move making his bow snap out was hard to watch and pointless. It was like Whedon was screaming 'LOOK HOW BAD ASS HE iS!" at us. And as for feats in the movie. Hawkeyes were the most unlikely to watch. Which sounds realy odd when talking about a movie with Thor,Hulk,and Iron man in it. I would explain more but I can't get the spoiler tags thing to work.
I think Hawkeye is somewhat of an audience surrogate. He and Black Widow are the "Badass Normals" or the group, and they both grounded the movie into a simulacrum of reality. And I thought his character was just fine. He had more depth than most of my limited experience with him in the comics would demonstrate.
Saw it again today, and again, the audience reacted really well to him.
