#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 appreciate the arrow loss, except there was no gradual loss. Like, he just had a full quiver - full quiver - full quiver and then it was empty. Like, we saw him multiple times with a full stock of arrows, and next thing we know it is gone.
I noticed the first time I saw it because I always look for arrows in movies because it drives me nuts. Confirmed it the second
and third time too.
