To say we’re excited for a new Denis Villeneuve film is an understatement. After the fantastic triple-threat of Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, the director is moving on to the realm of sci-fi with Story of Your Life and Blade Runner 2. Before the latter arrives next year, we have the former to look forward to, with a cast that includes Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner — and it looks like it just got a title change and an official release date.

Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye went from one of the less compelling members of the MCU team to one of its most endearing and delightful thanks to his expanded arc in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye is gearing up to return to the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, where he'll be pitted against his longtime partner and friend, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, in an epic battle between Avengers. And it looks like he's gotten a bit of a costume upgrade, as you can see in these new pieces of promo art.
Now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has arrived in theaters, it’s time to start looking forward to another epic superhero battle. Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in just over a month, and though this international trailer features familiar scenes, it also offers some new footage, including a special moment between Black Widow and Hawkeye.
Up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye didn’t have a whole lot to do in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making him something of an extraneous character. It’s unclear just how much of a part Hawkeye will have in Captain America: Civil War given the crowded slate of characters, but there is one place where Renner’s hero could take the spotlight: Netflix. Although Marvel currently has no plans to give their MCU stars a spinoff series, Renner says he’d be game to take Hawkeye to the small screen.
When you say the words “Rocky” and “boxing” together, you think of one of two things: Sylvester Stallone, or how much you want to see Creed again right now. Jeremy Renner would like you to forget about all of that, and in a bid to get in on some of that Cash with a capital C, the actor is banking on your interest in boxing movies featuring guys named Rocky, or maybe he just hopes to confuse you into seeing his next movie.
Remember Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters? A dumb idea on paper that seemed appropriately dumb in execution, but made enough money internationally to theoretically drag poor Jeremy Renner into a sequel? Well, ol’ Hawkeye may have been let off the hook, as Paramount is reportedly scrapping its sequel plans in favor of a TV series.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, explore the party that is the Suicide Squad set, ponder some odd Michael Shannon comments, and parse the latest Marvel movie news.
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part I hitting theaters within a year of one another, it seemed likely that we might see at least some of the Guardians gang appear alongside the Avengers team. According to Jeremy Renner, you shouldn't hold your breath for that crossover — in fact, it may never happen.
And that’s a wrap…for now. Captain America: Civil War has completed principal filming, and now the post-production process (and our long march to next May) begins. The film shot primarily at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, with additional filming taking place in Berlin (hello, Baron Zemo) and Puerto Rico. The news was delivered by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, while additional, supplementary filming will likely occur sometime over the next few months or so.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 seems like one of the more unlikely sequel developments in recent years, but perhaps Paramount is seizing on the increased popularity of Jeremy Renner…or something. Like many commercial directors before him, Bruno Aveillan will leap from TV commercials to commercial filmmaking, as he’s just been tapped to helm the new sequel.
