The Avengers, Jason Bourne, Mission Impossible – Jeremy Renner is racking up the action roles!
Renner is talking about the challenges of playing Hawkeye in a huge movie like The Avengers.
“It’s huge. Look how many characters are in that thing,” Renner tells Collider and adds that “It was the ultimate challenge for Joss Whedon, who knows that universe so well.”
Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America all had solo movies before the Avengers. Hawkeye was briefly seen in Thor. SHIELD agent Coulson called him by his real name, Clint Barton. If The Avengers is a hit could this lead to a Hawkeye solo movie?
Renner told Collider, “I certainly like the character. But, I don’t know what the future holds.”
I certainly have my fanboy ideas – let’s hope Joss scripts hot chemistry and a love scene between Hawkeye and Black Widow. In the comics – Hawkeye and the Widow have a romance during a caper involving technology stolen from Tony Stark.

I’m hoping for a solo movie because that could mean a big screen version of a character I love: Mockingbird. Clint falls for SHIELD agent Bobbi Morse who goes by the code name: Mockingbird. Maybe Joss has a Bobbi cameo in The Avengers?
Who should play Mockingbird? (Blake Lively, Jennifer Morrison, Michelle Williams)
