SPAWN: Jeremy Renner Confirmed To Play The Lead Role Of Twitch Williams In The Upcoming Reboot

The trades have now confirmed the recent rumor that Jeremy Renner (Avengers, Tag) was up for the lead role of Detective Twitch Williams in Todd McFarlane's upcoming reboot of Spawn. More past the jump...

Last week, we reported on That Hashtag Show's scoop that Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner was up for the role of Twitch Williams in the Spawn reboot, and this has now been confirmed by the trades.

Renner's character will team up with the supernatural antihero of the title (Jamie Foxx) to track down his daughter's killer.

Here's what Spawn creator and director of the reboot, Todd McFarlane, had to say about the Avengers star joining his cast:


“As a first time director, I wanted to surround myself with the most talent and the most skilled people I can on all fronts. I was lucky enough to land Jason Blum and then Jamie Foxx, and I knew the person on screen the most is this police officer, Twitch Williams. We needed as strong a person as possible because he will be the face of the film.

I took my naïve Hollywood approach again, and said let’s start at the top and work down. Jeremy was at the top. I’m a huge fan of his. The character doesn’t need to be a bodybuilder or GQ handsome. I was looking for somebody who’s a person you’ve met before; I needed someone who can pull off the grief of an average human being. I’ve seen Jeremy do that in more than a few of his movies. He was at the top of my list, just like Jamie.”

Renner's addition is certain to drum up a bit more hype for this one - although the fact that Spawn himself will be more of a background character has been cause for concern among many fans.
