* A major reason Marvel cancelled ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' and relaunched it as ''Comicbook/NewAvengers'' was because they wanted to get rid of the "dead weight" (characters who weren't in [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy live action]] [[Film/XMen movies]]) and focus on their A-listers like Franchise/SpiderMan and ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, with ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} and the Scott Lang version of Comicbook/AntMan specifically chosen to die because editorial thought they were worthless characters. Now, of those "dead weight" heroes, Hawkeye was one of the stars of ''Film/TheAvengers'' (one of the highest-grossing films of all time), ComicBook/TheFalcon, ComicBook/ScarletWitch and ComicBook/TheVision are all Avengers as of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', and Film/AntMan and TheWasp, ComicBook/BlackPanther and [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] are all getting their own solo films, while the X-Men are supposedly being buried because Marvel doesn't have the rights to make movies off of them, and Spider-Man may only be escaping that fate because Marvel and Sony were able to reach a deal to integrate Spidey into the MCU. What a difference a few years makes...

* An issue of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' from the 80's had ComicBook/AntMan claiming he and ComicBook/TheWasp had as much chance of beating Absorbing Man and Titania as Creator/StevenSpielberg had of winning an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for his directing. Fast forward to the 90's and the release of ''Film/SchindlersList'' and ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan''...

* Another Hawkeye related one; Hawkeye decided to become a hero after watching Iron Man in action and wanted to be a superhero like him. In the mid-late 2000s ''Film/IronMan'' came out, and reportedly, when Creator/JeremyRenner watched it, he wanted to play a superhero, just like Iron Man. He got his wish, how? By playing Hawkeye in Film/TheAvengers. Too bad they didn't explore Hawkeye's backstory or explain who he is.
