Where the Heck is Barton? #4

WHERE THE HECK IS BARTON #4

After a few weeks of this meme, I guess this brings us to the serious question… where the heck is Barton? Here’s a shot from the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it seems like maybe a flash to where he has been. Where the heck? Well, I have at least one theory: The North.

Tapping into one of the great memes. Do you think I found a picture that works for a replacement? Thoughtful Hawkeye?

Okay. This looks bad.

For November, I am going to run with a meme series that I have been thinking about, “Where the Heck is Barton?” It’s a reference to the fact that in the Marvel movies since The Avengers, Clint Barton – Hawkeye – has not shown up at all. Supposedly this will all be explained in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but in the mean time, I’ll be exploring a few of my theories on where he’s been.

This one is from Hawkeye #1, which if I were going to recommend a fun comic to you, this one might be the one. Every issue opens pretty much exactly like this.

The Sunday (Tuesday) Re-Blog – Joss Whedon and the Golden Age

Alright, so I have to say: I think we are entering into a Golden Age of creativity in our world today. A world where we are running into new technologies, new ways of doing entertainment, new ways of approaching storytelling. A world where there is so much quantity, but we still value the quality so much.

I submit to you that this, the world we are moving into, the Day and Age, the Zeitgeist – for the geeks, the barometer of this has to be the success of Joss Whedon.

A man who, constantly, has been shut down by the establishment. And who, when given the chance, creates the most beloved pieces of geekdom being produced today, outside of perhaps Doctor Who. Perhaps.

So join me for a few moments to consider where Joss Whedon has been, and where he has gotten to now, director of one of the highest grossing movies ever made. Read more of this post
