Jeremy Renner fans — you can now rest easy tonight!

While it had recently been rumored that Hawkeye was being recast in the Avengers sequel, it looks like Jeremy isn't going ANYWHERE!

Our sources tell us that the recasting rumors are completely untrue and that he will indeed return to the silver screen as Hawkeye! Phew!

And, though it had been reported that some comments Jeremy made pissed off the execs over at Marvel, we're told he's still "very much a part of the Marvel family."

Not only that, but it sounds like we can expect to see Renner in the upcoming installments!!

This weekend just got SO much better…!!!

    Not for nothing, but your site, Perez, is the only site I saw that reported that he wasn't going to return. You pretty much started the rumor before you found out the facts and now, magically, as you found out you were wrong, are reporting that you have discovered the truth… really? Get your shit together Mario.

    Actually Kyle73 the rumor started on the comicbookmovie website. So I'd like to say a big thank you to Perez for this exclusive. You've made a lot of fans happy.

    Please, please let this be true. I can't see anyone else as Hawkeye and to just not have the character in anymore movies would be a complete shame.

    Contracted actor is still contracted is a scoop?

    Setheel, I can see plenty of people playing Hawkeye–Renner's not even playing him as close to the source as he could be. BUT, I like Renner for the role and I'm glad he's staying.

    Thank you God in Heaven! I heard he could get recast and, even though I knew it was a rumor started by an unreliable source, I spent the night trying not to cry! I LOVE Jeremy Renner, as well as all the other Avengers actors, and would be heartbroken if ANY of them were recast or left out of the upcoming sequel. It would have been a really stupid move on Marvel's behalf, but I've been learning to trust them to make the right decisions. Oh, and you said that he could appear in an upcoming installment… any idea which one? I've still got my fingers crossed that he'll at least cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Would totally love to see him and Scarlett Johansson back together again before Avengers 2. They have such great chemistry!

    Good god, Renner can't act to save his life. He carried over his stock 1 expression from Avengers to Hansel & Gretel.

    Dear lord, such casting is why I stick to the comics.

    Btw, you guys need to read Hawkeye. It. Is. AWESOME.

    @Burt There is more than one series of Hawkeye comics, I assume you're referring to Matt Fractions latest crack at the character which, yeah, is brilliant. No idea what your beef is with Renner's acting though. If there's one thing I can't fault him on it's his acting. His turn in The Avengers only suffered because of minimal screen time and half of that time spent acting as a mind slave. But if you want to stick to comics instead of both comics and comic book movies, you're missing out. It's a whole new medium to enjoy the characters and environments in.

    I have to say I dont think renner resembled hawkeye too well and I could see tons of people taking up the role. Renner id a good actor but not a great resemblance to Clint.

  11. Sarah says – reply to this


    @Burt: OMG, I LOVE THE MATT FRACTION HAWKEYE COMICS!!! They are absolutely BRILLIANT!! If those are the ones you're referring to… Also, I'm afraid I have to agree with tilisk as far as Renner's acting goes. He didn't have a fair chance in Avengers. I've seen nearly all of his other movies and he's great in all of them! He wouldn't have been nominated for an Oscar if he wasn't…

    Re: Burt – I guess the Academy and the Golden Globes and a dozen other film critics associations got it wrong then when they nominated Jeremy Renner for acting awards two years running? He is like a chameleon from one role to the next — Dahmer, Hurt Locker, The Unusuals, The Town, Bourne Legacy …

    Hansel and Gretel wasn't exactly an actor's vehicle and 11 minutes of screen time, most of which he played a zombie (something he complained about) wasn't exactly a lot of time to demonstrate his abilities. I hope that the next Avengers script will give JR the scope to do so.
