I believe you.
wow okay preordering now
YOU ARE OLD.
Good come back, Clint. Real good.
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.
clint just scurrying by
for some reason is the funniest thing
like everyone else is ducking for cover
and clint is just like
PEACE MOTHERFUCKERS -vroom-
Clint is… not built for close range, poor squishy Clint.
Clint Barton will NOT get up close. Clint Barton WILL use the ranged weapon. Clint Barton WILL have the least screen time. Clint Barton WILL show the most skin. Clint Barton WILL get kidnapped and brainwashed by the villain.
Clint Barton IS a Strong Female Character.
omg that commentary.
CLINT BARTON DON’T NEED NO MAN. HAWK OUT.
This movie did have a strong female character!!
*waits for it*

IT GOT EVEN BETTER HOW
SATAN IS JUST SO DONE WITH EVERYBODYS SHIT
For those who may be wondering: He’s painting in the eye.
Here’s what I recently discovered whilst doing a Japanese translation assignment:
Garyoutensei - 画竜点睛 - literally means ‘to draw the dragon’s pupils’. The English equivalent would be ‘put the finishing touches to.’ The idea is that a picture is merely a picture, until the eye is drawn in. At that point, the picture becomes alive.
The act itself is symbolic of awakening a deity. As such, on statues and images of Buddha, deities, mythical beasts, and even worldly creatures and animals, the eye is always the last thing to be painted in, with great ceremony. After all, you wouldn’t want to wake up a god only for it to find you’d not finished his legs yet.
Here, they’ve asked Hawkeye to paint in the hawk’s eye, bringing his namesake to life. Wonderful.
I can’t decide what I feel most nerdy about today: languages, sumi-e, Avengers or Renner.
Update: the Chinese rendering is apparently 画龙点睛 - but don’t ask me how it’s pronounced.
I mean, I can’t miss. I’m on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you’ve forgotten. The training is the only thing that makes me special. And if I’m not special, then none of this is worth it. I gave up a lot for this life. … But I wanted to play with the big boys. And if I miss. It means I’m just another dude with a bow. It means I’ve been fooling myself this whole time.
And that’s why I never miss.
