There were some problems with AOU, but the scene between Wanda and Clint? A++.
It gave so much insight into Clint, who doesn’t have superpowers, who isn’t ‘specially enhanced’ in any way. He’s fighting a fight against intelligent robots, on a flying city, alongside his friends who have superpowers. And he’s just a man with a bow and arrow. It’s all crazy.
But he fights because he wants to help, and because he has something to offer. He knows it’s scary and chaotic, but he chooses to fight anyway. He was so kind and understanding to Wanda, and basically told her that it’s all about choices – any choice is fine when your world is falling apart. If she chooses not to fight, he’ll help her escape to safety. And if she chooses to fight, he’ll fight alongside her. She has powers, and maybe she was part of the problem, but it doesn’t matter in that moment. What matters is her choice. He treated her like a person, not a superhero or a science experiment.
It was so Clint, and I loved it.
