With just over two weeks to go until the release of Avengers: Endgame, fans' favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe actors are making the media rounds, and one thing many enjoy about these media blitzes is the genuine camaraderie that appears to exist between the actors.
That spirit of fun was on full display on Jimmy Kimmel Live! when Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the MCU films, appeared sporting a t-shirt with an image of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man in the character’s “Avenge the Fallen” Endgame poster.
At the start of the interview, Renner shows off the shirt and Kimmel comments, “Oh wow. Handsome…I see you’ve dipped into the merchandise.”
He goes on to tell Renner, “I’m excited to see you wearing Paul Rudd on your body.” Renner replies, “He’s my friend.” Kimmel then asks, “Does he know you’re wearing him on your body?” and Renner responds, “Yeah, yeah, yeah. We’re friends.”
Renner then goes on to joke, “We weren’t in the last movie, so we decided to make t-shirts together,” and Kimmel replies, “I see, you guys are the left-outers.”
It seems the affection is mutual, as Renner recently posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Paul Rudd, who is wearing a t-shirt featuring Hawkeye’s poster image.
