A source close to the situation explained:
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…!!!
