Bullseye, Hawkeye & Nick Fury in S.W.A.T.

Everybody remembers that time Nick Fury got hired to head up the L.A.P.D. division that Bullseye was a part of and they went up against the rogue group led by Clint Barton, right? Of course you do...

...but for real, I would watch the crap out of a big screen Hawkeye vs Bullseye flick starring Jeremy Renner and Colin Farrell, and I have a feeling a lot of other people would too.

Check it: Bullseye is on a rampage Samuel L. Jackson's Fury gets tasked with bringing him in so he puts his own top marksman, Hawkeye, on the case, and we get nearly two hours of real life pals Renner and Farrell beating the crap out of each other, setting up and escaping elaborate death traps, engaging in Bourne-esque rad chase scenes and generally being charming and bad ass as all get out. Have Samuel L. pop up now and again and you just up the testosterone-tastic manliness of it all.

Honestly, I do think this could work and be something of a break from the mainstream super hero movies we're seeing; it would be almost a Marvel Knights series off to the side you produce on the relative cheap, give a shorter run time and just have fun with. Years before Dark Reign was a glimmer in Brian Bendis' eye, we always wanted to see these characters go at it, and who better to make it happen than Renner and Farrell? It could be a lot of fun.

Heck, cast LL Cool J as Luke Cage and go for the full-on S.W.A.T. reunion! Has anybody actually seen that movie and could it be a conceivable prequel here?

Regardless, as long as I get to see Farrell's Bullseye again, I'm on board.
