HAWKEYE Star Jeremy Renner Opens Up On That Awesome ANT-MAN Reference In The Latest Episode

Jeremy Renner has shared his thoughts on this Wednesday's episode of Hawkeye, commenting specifically on that memorable Ant-Man reference when Clint Barton started unleashing his many trick arrows...

In this Wednesday's episode of Hawkeye, Clint Barton unleashed a whole host of trick arrows, including one that he'd clearly been given by Hank Pym and/or Scott Lang. That ended up making another of his arrows giant-sized, putting an end to Echo and the Tracksuit Mafia's pursuit. 

Talking to Marvel.com, Jeremy Renner expressed his excitement to include that fun Ant-Man reference in the show. Clint and Scott have shared a few memorable moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the actor was only too happy to revisist that dynamic through this trick arrow.

"If you're going to have a special tip arrow, it should be a Pym arrow," Renner says, "Because [of Hawkeye’s] relationship with Ant-Man. That was such a cool, cool thing. Now we're talking; now we're feeling more Avenger-like."

"You don't really know what’s happening all the time when you're filming it. When you do see it, like maybe a preview, you think like, wait, what? That's going to be in the visual effects? And so yeah, that was something I got very, very, very excited about and can't wait for that to land."

Director Rhys Thomas has talked about his hopes to include Paul Rudd's Ant-Man in Hawkeye, but with a cameo seemingly off the table, it seems we'll have to be content with a bunch of Easter Eggs instead.

It's always fun to see the wider MCU referenced in these solo adventures, and while those trick arrows have been a long time coming, it'll be hard to top a Pym arrow moving forward. The series almost certainly has a few more surprises up its sleeve quiver, of course, so we'll see where things go next.

Hawkeye is now streaming on Disney+.
