Jeremy Renner Shares Funny Chris Evans AVENGERS Story And Comments On AGE OF ULTRON

Recalling what Captain America star Chris Evans had to undergo for The Avengers' Shawarma scene, Jeremy Renner explains pressure he felt about playing Hawkeye and teases bigger Age of Ultron part.

Oh dude, I have the funniest one, said Jeremy Renner to Variety when asked if he had any funny stories about Captain America: The Winte Soldier star Chris Evans. I don’t know if I can say. When I think about it every time, I love it. The coda scene that happens at the end of The Avengers, we shot it at the premiere, when we were all together. A year had gone by, and Chris was in the middle of doing another movie, where he had a full beard and he couldn’t shave it off. He continued, “They had to do all these prosthetics over his face. The poor guy, he was in a chair for like four hours just for this three-second scene. He looked awful. He looked like his face was melting. Imagine if you have to put prosthetics over a thick beard, he looked like he got stung by a bee. The names that [Robert] Downey Jr. and everybody came up with. He couldn’t even laugh. It was really quite frustrating, I’m sure. No [you don't see the prosthetics], it’s a wide shot of the whole group at the Shawarma place. We left the premiere, jumped in costume and Chris had to go into makeup for so long to cover that dang beard.”

Like Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner says he, too, felt pressure when Marvel offered him the role of Clint Barton. “You know where that leads you, the amount of time and commitment,” said the actor of where pressure comes from. “You start to step into franchise-land and superhero land. It’s kind of terrifying when you’re an actor. It’s a huge commitment. But I’m glad I did it. All the actors are so awesome, I love them. That’s the main reason I want to keep going back. We all go through the same trials together. We’re definitely a Bad News Bears team.” 

As Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon, and Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. have delcared recently, Hawkeye will have a much bigger role in Age of Ultron than he did in the original 2012 superhero assembly. “I can’t give you any details, but yeah, there seems to be more to do this time; I’m excited about that,” he said. Asked if all the costumes are made of the same material, Renner said: “Kind of and kind of not. It all shifts. Even from Captain America to Avengers, they worked their way through looking great and functioning great. I have one of the easiest costumes compared to the other guys, Chris Evans being one of the [harder ones]. The cowl on his head, any time you put it on, the thing gave him a migraine. It hit weird pressure points. But you have to work out the details to have it look great and function great. I feel like my costume might be changing a little bit for [Age of Ultron] Who knows man? As long as the pants don’t split in the crotch, I’m alright. I think it’s happened to all of us. You’re like, ’Ok, we’ve got to take a break. I’ve got a hole where it shouldn’t be.’”
