No, but can we talk about this. HE KNEW THIS MOTHERFUCKER WAS COMING. Either he’d sighted them before or (and this is my thinking, because HAWKEYE) he saw them coming in the windows of another building.
He makes split second calculations and looses an arrow WITHOUT LOOKING, and hits his target dead on.
This isn’t him showing off or anything. It’s tactical. It’s watching your own six while watching someone else’s.
This is years upon years of training, muscle memory, and straight up intelligence that puts most people to shame, all coming into play.
And let’s not forget, SHIELD’s physicists couldn’t figure out the tesseract opened from both sides. Yet Clint did.
When it comes down to it? This man is one of the biggest BAMFS in the Marvelverse, MCU or comics.
Clint’s human. He’s said it himself:
“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.”
And he does all this. And keeps up with people with superpowers.
I present to you: One of the baddest of asses ever to walk the planet. Clint. Mother. Fucking. Barton.
Fury did call him one of the two sharpest men he knew. And the other man he meant is a thermonuclear astrophysicist.
Countdown to Winter Soldier: 74 days to April 4th, 2014
A friendly reminder that the only reason Tony did the reading, is so Pepper would have sex with him
I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
Tony’s just like “This is actually disgusting but I suggested it so I have to eat every last bite and act like its the best thing ever. Im Tony Stark”
Bruce is just like “I have friends now so I dont care what kind of food it is”
Natasha and Clint are having a telepathic communication. “But Natasha this food is disgusting I want to go” … “No Clint you need to eat it and act like you love it. You’re still walking a thin line after blowing us all up. I had to deal with the Hulk after that explosion. THE HULK CLINT! THE HULK”
Steve is just tired after getting shot and he’s all like “This food is horrible, what was Stark thinking? Is this what America has become? Cheap food thats covered in grease? Whatever Im not eating it.”
And Thor is all, “WE HAVE WON A MIGHTY BATTLE FRIENDS! WE MUST NOW FEAT TOGETHER ON YOUR DELICIOUS MIDGARDIAN FOOD! ITS…….. wait why is the food faLLING OUT WHAT IS THIS SORCERY?!?!?! LOKI IM BLAMING YOU!!!!!!”
I felt this needed to exist.
Why does fate make us suffer?
#IT’S THE DAY THAT THOR FACED MIDGARD AND LOKI TURNED HIS BACK ON IT
THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
This is my favorite scene.
