Cool Videos: SNL takes on The Avengers and Jeremy Renner's arrowless Hawkeye

Nov. 19, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Most of us love THE AVENGERS with fanboy glee, but even as awesome as it is, it's not flawless. Thankfully, the cool factor of the film outweighs the flaws, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun with some of its inconsistencies. Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the film, guest starred on SNL this past weekend and joined the gang in poking some fun at the blockbuster, namely the uselessness of Hawkeye once his arrow supply is depleted.

In the comics, Hawkeye is known to grab any type of weapon to use, including guns, so I don't see a need to defend the character as this skit is all in good fun. It's not the funniest bit I've ever seen, but I got a few good laughs from Renner and Jason Sudeikis as Tony Stark/Iron Man, especially. Apologies to the international crowd if they aren't able to view the embed. Once a You Tube link is up, I'll repost.

You Just Got Quipped!:

THE AVENGERS is now on blu-ray/DVD.

Extra Tidbit: Does anyone have a count of how many arrows Hawkeye fired during the end battle of The Avengers?

Why not?

Why not make fun of the way he was used in The Avengers? He was the only new character (other than the brief Thor cameo), played by a big time actor, and they did fuck all with him. He was the character I was most looking forward to seeing them use and it was pretty awful. Renner has bitched about it in the press. I'm sure they signed him to a multi-pic deal, but if not I couldn't imagine him coming back for the same bullshit. It was by far the weakest part of a very good Avengers movie.

Wow! They're putting a ton of production value these days into....not very funny stuff.
I mean, I know skit turnover needs to happen fast and comedy can't be rushed, yadda yadda, but couldn't they have at least framed their one single joke around a narrative that was *slightly* more coherent? Maybe they should try spending less time designing big sets and costumes around a high concept, and instead put that effort into actually fleshing out the concept.

so...it took a SNL skit...

...to get those fucking sunglasses on his face? not saying anything that hasnt been said before...but, i expected his "sunglasses'' to be some sort of interface feeding Hawkeye environmental conditions to further enhance his talent. maybe they were and he just accidentally left them in his quarters.

Yikes

Could Renner be any stiffer here? Guy is an alright actor but he is terrible in this... just terrible. And it's called a quiver, duh. Hahaha

Funny to see Renner in for the fun. Like it when actors do this.
