While Hawkeye has already played with the Marvel gang with “The Avengers,” it was mostly a wasted opportunity, with the hero sidelined for a significant chunk of the movie. But Jeremy Renner says he’ll have more to do in the forthcoming “Avengers: Age Of Ultron.”
“Hulk has a more prominent role, and I have a more prominent role. There are a lot more scenes of the entire Avengers gang together —both in and out of the cape, so to speak. It’s making me become a total fanboy. It’s pretty fun to be a part of,” he told The Daily Beast last fall. But perhaps more intriguingly is that he’s signed for a solo movie… if Marvel chooses to go down that path (but let’s be honest, as of now, no one is really clamoring for more Hawkeye).
“I think most actors will sign on to do, like… ‘Captain America’ 1-3 and then ‘The Avengers’ 1-3, and then you’re done. For me, I signed on to ‘The Avengers’ 1-3 and then ‘Hawk-Eye,’ in case they want to do a ‘Hawk-Eye’ spin-off,” he said. Keep those dreams alive.
For now, here’s Hawkeye’s solo poster for ‘Age Of Ultron.’ See you May 1st.
