#can we just take a moment to appreciate
#while holed up doing a job of watching all the scientists working away
#managed to work out BEFORE the quantum physicist exactly what the fuck is going on
#with the tesseract
#by using pure logic
#it also shows that even though Nick chastises him for doing his whole ‘brood in the rafters’ nesting thing
#that Clint was paying attention the whole damn time
#this is the guy who can fire arrows without looking
#who can calculate on the fly the trajectory needed to lodge an explosive arrow into a propeller
#I will punch anyone who says Clint is useless or a deadweight because he’s squishy-human and is only good for being a marksman
#because he’s deceptively smart
#and plays that close to his chest
#Can we just briefly talk about the fact that he ACTUALLY RUNS OUT OF ARROWS? #I mean #when does that EVER happen in movies? #archers just always magically have enough arrows to get through the whole battle #but HAWKEYE ACTUALLY RAN OUT #AND IT WAS REALISTIC #AND I LOVE IT #I’m so proud of you #Joss Whedon #for not leaving it to the wonders of movie magic #thank you
YES. EXACTLY. Also, what he’s doing here is screwing new arrowheads onto the arrows he’s already shot - he collected them from various Chitauri bodies because that’s what an archer would actually have to do in a real battle. I squealed for 2 reasons when Hawkeye ran out of arrows. The first reason was because OHMYGOSH CLINT YOU’RE OUT OF ARROWS ARE YOU GOING TO BE OKAY but the second was OHMYGOSH HE RAN OUT HE ACTUALLY RAN OUT THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU JOSS FOR BEING REALISTIC.
I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed and understood how awesome this was.
this Whedon love. it’s my favorite.
Can we have a moment of silence for all the camera men that died during the filming of this movie?
Can we take another moment and notice the gracious movement that Chris Evans does with his leg?
