Is Jeremy Renner moving from 'Hurt Locker' to Hawkeye?
Empire Magazine was interviewing Jeremy Renner about "The Hurt Locker," and it's obvious that no matter what the film does in terms of Oscars, it's given Renner a huge bounce in the industry, and he's going to start showing up in all sorts of interesting places soon, I'd expect.
Here's what he had to say, though, that got nerds everywhere buzzing this week:
"If I was a betting man, I would bet that Hawkeye would probably show up in 'Thor', and then be in 'The Avengers.' But do I know for sure? I can’t say. But I’d love for that to happen. It’d be fun.”
Even more interesting? Renner was one of the guys who just spent the last three months chasing the lead role in George Miller's new "Mad Max: Fury Road," only to lose out to Tom Hardy, who is coming off of the ferocious "Bronson." I know Sam Worthington was also in that hunt, so it's interesting to see how there's a new group of guys all chasing the same parts who qualify by virtue of being men in an industry of perpetual boys.
Hawkeye is Marvel's answer to Green Arrow, a can't-miss archer who has been a major player in "Avengers" continuity over the years. I love the idea of just threading him into other movies instead of trying to build a franchise around him by himself, and Renner's a heck of a pick for the role.
Will it happen? We won't know for a while, but already, 2012 is looking like a ridiculous amount of fun with the arrival of what may well be the biggest superhero film ever made, and it just keeps getting cooler with each new bit of news.
