Jeremy Renner on Hawkeye and Avengers

Hurt Locker star clears things up


Jeremy Renner, breakout star of The Hurt Locker, has spoken out again on the rumours that he'll be playing Hawkeye for Marvel.

The net has been a-buzz with news that Jeremy Renner has been cast as Hawkeye in Thor and The Avengers, after he said that he had been in talks with the studio.

He thinks he may have to wait a while before he gets any confirmation though.

He says: "They were just talking, 'Like maybe we should consider maybe hiring Hawkeye now' but there's no director on Avengers so they don't want to force-feed the director".

Renner also hints at a more reality-based take on the character: "It's not going to be the guy with the big purple (mask), it's not going to be a guy in tights".

"It's going to be a guy in sunglasses and a vest".

Renner certainly seems like a good fit for the role, as he can handle the action, and has proven his acting chops in intense roles.

      If the film-makers are going to model the Avengers on Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's Ultimates, it's not surprising that the purple garb is going to be ditched. The Ultimates look is modern and bad a*s!
