    Nope. Not Hawkeye.

    Wonder Man.

    A bit off topic, but wondering what Whedon fans think of the ABC show "Castle" that stars Fillion?

    I like Nathan Fillion. He was great in Firefly, Dr Horrible & Slither. I have seen Castle once or twice and it didn't do much for me. It seemed too normish.
    Now, take this with a grain of salt. The only network TV show I watch is Big Bang Theory.

    Re: Avengers Assemble

    Here's what we know. Downey, Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) are all set. Edward Norton has said he'd like to play Hulk again (villain??) but he wanted Letterier to direct if at all possible. Scarlett has signed on for more than one picture so we'd have to assume Black Widow would be in this somewhere.

    I have not seen Hawkeye mentioned anywhere but have saw that they want Ant-Man, ie Hank Pym in this (but would not give him the origin story that Iron Man, Thor and Cap are getting).

    Re: Avengers Assemble

    From the article:

    Nathan Fillion - Wonder Man
    Former Fireflier Fillion is already playing a smug, full-of-himself celebrity with a heart of gold on Castle, so why not cast him as the safari-jacket-wearing Hollywood actor who's also an ion-powered Avenger?
    Dude is stealing my ideas!

    I like some of Whedon's stuff - Buffy, Dr. Horrible, Firefly/Serenity - and I just recently started watching this show. I like it. It's not The Sopranos quality wise but it's entertaining. I get a kick out of Castle's bulletproof vest that says "writer" on it while all the others say "police." Cracks me up every time.

    Re: Avengers Assemble

    Their suggestion of Adam Baldwin as Hawkeye is spot on, way better than Fillion. Hawkeye is gruff, tactless and willing to put an arrow through someone's wrist. That's Adam Baldwin.

    Agreed, same thing I thought.
