Jeremy Renner would not make a very good spy. The guy can’t keep his mouth shut! If you’re doing something secretive, you’re supposed to keep quiet about it. But earlier today Renner teased something he’s doing for Marvel as Hawkeye, the master archer of the Avenger. And, really, Renner should know better because he works for S.H.I.E.L.D. (and as Jason Bourne’s replacement in ‘The Bourne Legacy’!)
If you took a straw poll among movie fans and asked them who their favorite Avenger is, chances are strong that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye would rank last. Not that it's Renner's fault -- he was essentially a supporting character in the first film (under hypnosis by Loki for the majority of that time) and really hasn't had a chance to really show off his superhero skills yet. However, his smaller shadow on the Marvel cinematic universe has led to much discussion about his character moving forward. Namely, will Hawkeye even live to see the closing credits of 'Avengers 2'?
While many people ponder the potential of a Black Widow spinoff at Marvel, few have wondered when we're getting a 'Hawkeye' movie. That's not to say that we don't love Jeremy Renner's sharpshooter, it's just that he hasn't gotten much to do in the Marvel universe so far. That may change as Renner says there are "rumblings" of a major role for Hawkeye in 'Captain America 3'.
These two charming cosplayers have been getting a lot of attention for their great take on Hawkeye of 'The Avengers' and Hawkingbird (the lady Hawkeye counterpart), and we can see why.
