The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a vast, sprawling landscape of heroes, villains, and morally ambiguous characters caught somewhere in the middle. Not every character can receive a movie, but there are certainly individuals who deserve one. With that in mind, Jeremy Renner recently admitted that he's onboard to do a Black Widow/Hawkeye team-up movie with Scarlett Johansson, and we think it's time for Marvel Studios to take that idea seriously.

There are about a million different reasons why this project should materialize, so we combed through the greater MCU lore and came up with five very distinct arguments as to why a Black Widow/Hawkeye movie is a good idea. Check out our reasons and let us know what you think of this idea in the comments section below. Without any further delay, let's kick this list off with a topic that has been touched upon (but never fully addressed) since 2012.

They Have Obvious History Together

"It's just like Budapest all over again." That one quintessentially Joss Whedon line from The Avengers told fans everything that they needed to know about Black Widow and Hawkeye; they have worked together for years, and they have been through the wringer more times than they can count. The MCU has done an excellent job with regards to establishing a connection and mythology between these two heroes, and we think it is time for a story that genuinely explores that history. Aside from the Budapest reference and the fact that Hawkeye convinced Widow to defect to S.H.I.E.L.D, we don't know much. Out of all the characters in the current Avengers line-up, they are the two whose stories have been waiting in the wings longer than anybody else. What the hell happened to them during their trip to Hungary? It's time for us to find out.
