Jeremy Renner talks about playing Hawkeye in The Avengers

09.16.2010

It will be almost two years until we see Marvel's heroes assemble on screen in THE AVENGERS, and that's a long time for sites like JoBlo to scrounge for even the slightest news to report on the project... But fortunately we have people like Jeremy "Loose Lips" Renner throwing us scraps!

While promoting THE TOWN, Renner (who's playing marksman/archer Hawkeye) told MTV about how his costume will deviate from the classic comic outfit. "I think it's going to be a little more reality-based," said Renner. "You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]'s character [Black Widow], it's going to be more of a uniform... and not a big purple, comics sort of thing. That's why I think it's more palatable to audiences — there's almost a sense of reality to these superheroes."

As we've suspected, it sounds like Hawkeye will be closer to the cool Ultimates version of the costume -- which makes sense, since that's also the Nick Fury we already got. And it seems like a similar pairing with Widow, as Renner says: "We will [have a relationship], I think, in this one as well. We're kind of a team, and what that relationship is, is still to be discovered."

We've still got plenty of time to speculate -- director Joss Whedon is still working on the script, and shooting doesn't start until next year. And then it's just a whole lot of months before it hits theaters!

I'd rather see Hawkeye in his own movie, not in the clusterfuck that will be The Avengers.

Glad they decided to put Hawkeye in the movie and that they decided to cast the brilliant Jeremy Renner for him. The trailer and viral campaign for this movie is going to be banana's.

I'm digging the Ultimate vibe I'm getting from Cappy, Thor, and the Avengers. Those are pretty darn good updates for some characters with a lot of baggage. Now if only Marvel could get The Silver Surfer back!!!

I think since we have Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, most of Avengers' costumes would be like The Ultimates or X-Men. I'm just guessing but I hope costumes turn out nice.

It doesn't bother me they're changing Hawkeye's costume, I'm just glad they got Renner to play Hawkeye.
