Some time ago, Jeremy Renner was the subject of 'Captain America' casting rumors. However, it looks like he might be filling the role of another Avenger. According to Empire, Renner is in talks to play Hawkeye.
"I met with the Marvel guys, actually, but we didn't talk about Captain America. But one of the writers, Zak Penn, we've become friends over time and he was thinking maybe Hawkeye could be interesting. He sounds like an interesting character."
Like other Avengers, the super archer would probably make a cameo prior to the Avengers film.
"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."
We're guessing Renner knows more than he's saying. But we're fine with that, as long as Hawkeye actually makes the Avengers film.
