UPDATE: Jeremy Renner Teases Plans For 'Hawkeye' Appearance In CAPTAIN AMERICA 3
It looks like Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is finally going to get some attention in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! A larger role in Avengers: Age of Ultron has been teased, and now the actor reveals that he's heard about a possible role in Captain America 3. Check it out!
Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow took on a starring role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier alongside Chris Evans, but now it looks like Hawkeye might get the spotlight in the next solo outing for the star spangled Avenger. In a recent interview with Collider, American Hustle star Jeremy Renner told the site that he may (or may not depending on how things work out) have a role in Captain America 3 following a much larger part in Avengers: Age of Ultron last year. "There are rumblings of Captain America 3," Renner revealed. "I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man (laughs). I’m trying to stay home and I can’t." It would certainly be interesting to see Hawkeye helping Steve Rogers and The Falcon hunt down Bucky, especially as the relationship between Clint and Cap in the comics has always been a lot of fun. That wasn't something we got to see an awful lot of in The Avengers because Hawkeye spent most of his screentime being controlled by Loki, something the Mission: Impossible 5 actor has made clear he didn't enjoy doing a number of times now. It would also result in a very different dynamic in the threequel. Would you guys enjoy seeing Hawkeye in Captain America 3?
UPDATE: Superhero Hype spoke to directors Anthony and Joe Russo earlier today, and quizzed them about Renner's comments. They refused to confirm or deny this, saying only that it would give too much away about the threequel, but Joe did tease: "There are certainly characters that Cap is close to or has a strong relationship with that would make sense appearing in his films. I think that’s all we can say about it." So, for now, it looks like we're going to have to wait and see!
