Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye RECAST In Avengers Sequel Because He Pissed Off Marvel Execs?!

Awww, snap!

Jeremy Renner made us SWOON as Hawkeye (yes, even as evil hypnotized Hawkeye) in Joss Whedon's Avengers movie, and we had heard that he'd be making a cameo in Captain America: Winter Soldier

But it seems Renner may NOT be appearing in any future Marvel projects in ANY capacity, as rumor has it Hawkeye is being RECAST!!

But why??

Well, during an interview while promoting the first Avengers flick Jeremy stated:

"For 90 percent of the movie, I'm not the character I signed on to play. It's kind of a vacancy. [He's] not even a bad guy, because there's not really a consciousness to him. To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses … I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No."

Ok, sounds pretty accurate to us… he barely even has dialogue in the movie and has little screen time compared to the other Avengers so obviously it wasn't a very fulfilling acting experience, LOLz!

Unfortunately for Jeremy, some seem to believe it is the aforementioned candid comments that PISSED OFF Marvel execs to such an extent that they now want to BOOT Renner from the $$$-making franchise.


Now, this is merely hearsay, so we're keeping our Hawkeyes and ears peeled for any further information… we don't wanna see Jeremy go!

Ch-ch-check out some snaps of JRenns as Hawkeye (below)!

    You know I completely agree with him. I was disappointed seeing what they did to his character that I had to turn off the entire movie for some reason. Lol. On a serious note it really sucks to open your mouth these days because now it's going to cost him. The execs need to chill out and keep him on. Geez…he was only stating what most of us thought. It's not his fault they did a crappy job writing the script.

    While I agree with Jeremy Renner, I would still like to see a recast because I don't think he is right for Hawkeye. Then again, that might be because he didn't have any presence in the first film, but he surely isn't handsome enough…eh.

    Let's be honest. No one really cared about Norton or the original Rhodey. But Renner, man. He was part of the billion dollar success. Why mess with the magic?!?

    I doubt the majority of movie goers are even going to watch the film because of Hawkeye although Jeremy Renner has grown on me because I used to really dislike him.

    Actually, the whole article is misquoted and inaccurate. The original interview was with the LA times on August 6, 2012 and was very positive about Avengers, Marvel, etc. Total Film and then one of the fanboy comic book sites selected phrasing from the interview to create this farce about him complaining - almost a year ago. Come on Perez, don't let these idiots play you!

    I hope this is just a rumor, and there's actually no truth behind it at all. Jeremy Renner played an excellent Hawkeye! The Avengers cast had great chemistry, Marvel would be stupid to mess that up.

    What!!!!!! That would be crazy if they recast Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner played that role magnificently. He also promoted it very well around the world. If Marvel recast him, they would be making the biggest mistake of their lives!!

    What I hate the most is that you can't even have an opinion without punishment? Renner wasn't even insulting the movie, just stating a fact. Hawkeye was Loki's attackbot in the first movie, it was a plot point, and instead of fleshing out the character in the second movie to make up for it, they want to boot Renner for expressing anything other than blind adoration?

    If they boot Renner, I will not watch the second movie.

    Renner was GREAT in Hurt Locker because emotionally he came across as vacant. He was decent in Avengers but I wished he had more personality. I have no idea what they want for Hawkeye but I think there are other roles for Renner out there.
