Expert archer Hawkeye was missing in action during Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we’re about to get a double dose. Of course, we know he’s got a major role in Avengers: Age of Ultron out in May. And while he won’t appear in the subsequent Marvel film, Ant-Man, there’s now evidence he’ll appear in Captain America: Civil War, which will be out in May 2016.
Jeremy Renner‘s character joins an already jam-packed superhero cast that includes Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and probably even Spider-Man.

There are two months left until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, which may seem like a painfully long time but is really nothing compared to the two years and ten months we’ve already been waiting for it. In the meantime, Marvel Studios is happy to tide us over with the occasional tidbit, like the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer promised earlier this week.
Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

In June 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Previously we posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr, director Joss Whedon, and Chris Hemsworth. Today we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with two more Avengers. This post contains our interview with Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner. Here is a short snippet from Renner explaining how the action has evolved in this Avengers sequel:
There’s new tech and new costumes, there’s always new abilities, and new sort of things. For instance, if Hawkeye is a distance guy, what happens when it’s close quarters? We did a little of that in the first Avengers with having to use arrows in hands and having to do different things like that, be nimble and flying between people’s legs. You have to be clever with things, clever fighting to me is what I like to explore a little bit more with that as well. And then using each other, like if it was Cap, Widow, and I in a scene how we can use each other’s abilities as teamwork? He can toss me somewhere higher. That’s where these new characters are great, with Scarlet Witch you’ll find that her abilities are just being tapped into in this movie and what they can become, she’s still learning what they are, which is really cool. That to me as a nerdy, geeky dude about this world, that’s what I’m excited to kind of see what happens in the future because that can be quite fun.

Just like the rest of us, Jeremy Renner spent this week getting back into the workaday groove after a hectic holiday season. But his job sounds a bit more exciting than your average office gig, and it requires a bit more secrecy too.
The actor was apparently back in character as Hawkeye this week, which is kind of surprising since Avengers: Age of Ultron wrapped months ago. So what could this mystery Hawkeye project be? Speculate with us about the Jeremy Renner Hawkeye shoot after the jump. Read More »

For many stars, a Marvel contract means the possibility of a standalone movie, or several of them. Robert Downey Jr. has had three already, and Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have had two each. Even Scarlett Johansson has been happy to play up the Black Widow movie rumors, though Kevin Feige‘s been dragging his feet about confirming anything just yet.
But there hasn’t been much chatter about a potential Hawkeye solo film — and Jeremy Renner, for one, seems totally okay with that. Instead, he’s looking forward to showing off his archery skills in Avengers: Age of Ultron and probably (wink, wink) Captain America 3. Hit the jump to read the new Jeremy Renner Hawkeye movie comments.
