So apparently we have found our Hawkeye.
Actor Kevin Pennington (relatively unknown) has been chosen to play a Marvel character.
Facts about him are below:
– He is signed with Marvel Studios, NOT Fox, Sony or any other film studio.
– He will not appear as the new Spider-Man or as a member of X-Men First Class.
– Plans are for his character to be in Avengers films and other team-related films.
– He will be a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but also a fan favorite character from the comics (the character’s origin may be changed to fit the movie, and may never have been in S.H.I.E.L.D. or Avenger in the comics)
So this leads everyone to believe he will either play Hawkeye or Antman. But he is WAY too young for Antman.
‘A former Olympic archer, Clint Barton became a U.S. intelligence agent over a decade ago. Active around the world, he was present for the liberation of Kosovo and Afghanistan, as well as the fall of the Berlin Wall. He became a close friend and frequent colleague of fellow agent Nick Fury, and the two operatives were key founders of the modern intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. Both rose through the ranks until Fury became the agency’s director and Barton (code-named Hawkeye) became an elite agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s black ops division, often partnered with ex-KGB espionage legend Natasha Romanov (code-named Black Widow).’
What do you guys think?
Is he Hawk-Eye? Or just some random-ass MARVEL character?
