HAWKEYE Star Jeremy Renner Weighs In On Possibly Reuniting With Original AVENGERS In SECRET WARS

Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner has weighed in on potentially reuniting with the original six Avengers in a future MCU project and reveals whether he's ever asked to kill Clint Barton off. Check it out...

With the Multiverse Saga failing to connect with audiences in the way Marvel Studios hoped, none of us were surprised to learn Kevin Feige is thinking about reassembling the original six Avengers

The Infinity Saga was built around Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and The Hulk. While some of them would almost certainly be Variants, that team is certainly one way to get people back into theaters for the next Avengers movies. 

Talking to Josh Horowitz, Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner was asked for his thoughts on getting the gang back together. 

"Maybe if enough time goes by, right? I think it kind of has at this point, but also what is the point of the narrative [and] the story?" the actor wondered. "These are beloved characters. We did spend 23 films together essentially as a collective. What is the reason? What is the story? Do you have to do more after that? How do you ever resolve this?"

"When is it ever gonna feel like, 'Everyone gets their little bow, nobody died, it feels great!' What happens here?" Renner continued. "I've got feelings about it. I think everybody does. I think the guys that died have feelings about it."

It sounds like he may know something, and while Renner believes there needs to be a good reason for reassembling the original version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, he's clearly on board with the idea of reuniting with them. 

Horowitz then asked whether he's ever requested that Clint Barton be killed off and wondered why we never got that long-awaited Hawkeye & Black Widow movie. 

"No, no, I've never asked to be killed," Renner admits. "Stuff like [a team-up movie] is always interesting and exciting. You could pull in so many people just for that. A Mr and Mrs Smith vibe would be kinda interesting. What's the idea to get The Avengers together? How and why? What's the purpose of it?"

As for whether he knows anything about Secret Wars, he added. "I don't know what this is. I'm always down for it, man. I think it'd be great. It'd be awesome. I'd love to be with everyone again."

There are lots of fascinating insights in the video below, including the hate Renner received for not being the one who died in Avengers: Endgame (as we're sure you'll recall, Black Widow sacrificed herself to save the archer). 

Unfortunately, the actor isn't asked about Hawkeye season 2 plans despite recent rumours about it getting the green light.

RDJ never asked to be killed either

@WhateverItTakes -
Hugo Weaving did...

You already know this man is gonna be the SOLE reason we get the OG Avengers back together. Most of the other actors seem pretty content moving on from their roles and don't really feel a need to come back.

Marvel better be cooking on the script. I don't want any more subpar Marvel content anymore. More like X-Men 97, please.

@xfan320 - I dunno, I think money will also be a big factor
xfan320 - 6/3/2024, 10:04 AM
@Evansly - I'm sure, but given the goodwill and enthusiasm that Mr. Renner garners from those around him, and the fact he still has a healthy working relationship with Disney, I'm sure goes a long way in negotiations.
Evansly - 6/3/2024, 10:05 AM
@xfan320 - Oh without a doubt. He seems like a great team player. Just don't think he'll be the only reason

fav avenger. He was one of the few characters that Disney marvel didn't phuck up in the later projects. If he comes back I hope whoever the writers are don't try to phuck him.

damn can we move on from these guys?

we got characters making a billion off their first movie and we worrying about characters who couldn’t pull that off until their third movie after hella team ups?

especially with the X Men? CA, IM, and Thor are like glorified cameo characters who were places holders for the real heavy hitters like BP, CM, SM, and She Hulk.

@YouFlopped - I dunno, I'm curious about the X-Men too. Mostly, because humans will supposedly hate and fear homo superior and ultimately getting replace by them...cuz reasons, but have no problem with a bunch of Asgardians just setting up shop on Earth and living there indefinitely.
CorndogBurglar - 6/3/2024, 12:51 PM
@The1st - Humans don't hate mutants "cuz reasons". Mutants are the next stage in evolution. Their very existence represents the end of Homo Sapiens. This is why a huge part if humanity hates and fears them. Add to that the fact that some evil mutant is attacking innocent humans every Tuesday and the reason for Human's hate becomes pretty clear, even if not justified.

Comparing mutants to Asgardians isn't even close to the same thing. Humanity doesn't have to fear Asgardians ending their entire race simply because they exist.

@YouFlopped - I can imagine you are a heavy hitter when it comes to illegal substances if your opinions are anything to get on by
MartianManHuntr - 6/3/2024, 6:04 PM
@CorndogBurglar - So are you saying every human on earth knows how each and everyone of the supers got their power?

And then dislikes one who got it from mutant gene. If mutant know this, why don't they simply lie. Just repeat daredevil story or ghost riders.
MartianManHuntr - 6/3/2024, 6:06 PM
@YouFlopped - I agree. It's time to move on from these characters. We have new characters like she Hulk, skaar and others coming in. Make room for them.
Change should be constant.
YouFlopped - 6/3/2024, 7:11 PM
@WhateverItTakes - absolutely mr cuckhold ❤️
CorndogBurglar - 6/4/2024, 2:26 AM
@MartianManHuntr - No, I very obviously didn't say anything like that.

In fact most mutants are normal looking enough that they can pass as a normal human in every day life, and they do. The X-Men have been seen in public countless times in comics out if costume and no one knows they're mutants or who they are. But that doesn't mean the citizens in the Marvel Universe don't know mutants in general exist and aren't afraid of them.

And all the other supers are pretty much popular enough that everyone knows they aren't mutants. And some supers are treated poorly regardless. And even, for example, if a known mutant is on the Avengers, it doesn't mean everyone is going to hate that particular mutant. Not everyone is a bloodthirsty savage looking to kill mutants. But that doesn't mean they aren't afraid of mutants as a whole.

But there's also a level of suspension of disbelief as well. These are comics. But like I said, everyone knows who the Avengers or Fantastic 4 are, for example, so they don't hate them. But the X-Men are known mutants and no matter how much good they do there will always be humans that fear and hate them.

Spider-Man, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and countless others? These people have all been around the block and either everyone knows they aren't mutants, or they recognize the good they do and give them a pass. Except for times when they hate them for other reasons, like times when the public have turned on Spidey or DD for example. But that was never because people thought they were mutants.

Mutants as a whole are like the threat you don't know is around. Anyone could be a mutant. Back during God Loves, Man Kills that was actually a big part of the propaganda. "It's 1985. Do you know what your kids are?" That's part of the fear that the government put out about mutants in that story.

But like I said, all of the popular heroes are well known and trusted because they've saved lives, the city, and in some cases the entire world countless times. And if a new hero shows up then sure, there might be speculation about whether they are a mutant or not, but again, that doesn't mean they are going to get hunted down in the streets and murdered. Civilians just won't be too sure what to think of them at first. But that would be the case of any new masked vigilante running around town at night.

@CorndogBurglar - Like I said, cuz reasons. Not every man is evil, not every mutant (still a man) is evil, and not every Asgaardian is good. Like you said hates and fears, what they don't understand. That isn't made up for comics. That comes from the source. Us. I love the Tuesday reference though. The funny thing to me is that said mutant, and other heroes, inadvertently garner the attention of other species, in comics, at times, but, if they're not there (mutants), that just leaves teams like the FF, Iron Man, etc. Ever read Blue Marvel? Pretty sure humanity feared something they couldn't control and not something they couldn't understand. Sometimes the simpler truth is they don't want to understand. Also, you make Magneto sound right lol. You think the prior versions of homo sapien just got their heads bashed in by their successors? There was inbreeding. Humans could do that in comics, so it doesn't represent the end of homo sapiens. It just means change. There's always a better way, if you choose it.

Josh Horowitz is such a terrible interviewer. He is cloying, obsequious, overbearing, and fake. I don't blame Renner for wanting to avoid him
WeaponXCII - 6/3/2024, 11:04 AM
Hopefully he returns if the rest of the original Avengers do.
bkmeijer1 - 6/3/2024, 11:46 AM
Think it'd be funny if we get a post credit scene of an alternate version of the original Avengers team (completely unrelated to the movie) eating shawarma somewhere in another universe
The1st - 6/4/2024, 6:05 AM
@bkmeijer1 - That...makes too much sense lol.
KennKathleen - 6/3/2024, 12:08 PM
He'd be a great mentor for the Young Avengers, should they decide to go in that direction.

I'd like to see him become a combination of Fury and Rodgers, while holding back pukeface protégé, Hawkeye due to his trauma from losing Black Widow.
