Avengers Guardians Crossover May Never Happen, Claims Jeremy Renner

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is quickly expanding, and maybe we're taking for granted that it will all collide and connect at some point. When Marvel announced the two-part two-film event The Avengers: Infinity War, we all assumed that we'd see all of the Marvel heroes in this one epic story. And we might see both the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers in those movies, but don't expect to see the two teams crossover on the big screen — at least according to Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the films. Lets hear Hawkeye's thoughts on a potential Avengers Guardians crossover.

Jeremy Renner appeared on stage at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2015, and when asked about a possible Guardians of the Galaxy/Avengers crossover, the actor seemed skeptical. He joked:

You'll be eighty years old by then, and I won't be Hawkeye anymore. I'll be Dead Guy.

Renner thinks it would be impossible to schedule a big screen crossover, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War both come out within a year of each other. Watch the whole video clip from the panel embedded above.

James Gunn Favorite Movies of 2014Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn previously spoke out about the fact that the Avengers and Guardians universes are very separate:

We really are separate from the Avengers, and I don't think people should assume too many things about the Guardians play in all this. We have our own galaxy to take care of. We have our own galaxy to save. Earth is the Avengers' province. Thinking that everything is going to come together in a perfect way is not necessarily the way it's going to happen.

I don't think we'll see The Avengers appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, and Gunn suggests as much. But I still don't think it would be impossible to have both of these teams to appear in the same film, but as Renner notes, scheduling all the actors to share the same frame might be impossible. Heck, the characters barely fit together in the Andy Park concept art mash-up header image at the top of this story.
