Yeah, I didn't think about the potential Hawkeye connection. Perhaps this'll become a likelihood if Jeremy Renner becomes a more bankable name in the wake of the new Bourne movie?
He's pretty bankabled now, I would think.
I think this one would be the lower budget movie. There's no real need to go crazy on it. Keep the budget respectable and allow the Marvel Movie Universe to grow a little. Target something like Thanksgiving or an off-peak movie time when there aren't gigantic projects coming out.
I'm thinking something along the lines of Blade 2 for the scope.
