Jeremy Renner Most Likely to Play Hawkeye in The Avengers
According to HeatVision, Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker), who has long be rumoured as the favourite to play Hawkeye in the upcoming The Avengers movie, is now apparently in final negotiations to play the role of the archer hero, who started out as a villain, only to be brought back into the right fold.
Renner would be joining Robert Downey JR as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johanson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Don Cheadle as War Machine.
The Avengers will be directed by Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse creator and Sci-Fi fans favourite Joss Whedon.
HeatVision states that Marvel has not confirmed the negotiations with Renner.
What is your take on this? Do you think Renner has what it takes to play Hawkeye?
