When it comes to giving Hawkeye his due, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War may finally hit the bullseye.
Actor Jeremy Renner, who was himself outspoken about the character's treatment in 2012's The Avengers, assures fans Hawkeye will enjoy his moment in the sun in the 2018 ensemble film.
"We're doing a lot of really wondrous things that I've always wanted to do with this character," he said in an interview with South China Morning Post. "I think everyone will be very pleased when they find out what happens."
That will undoubtedly come as some comfort to Hawkeye fans, particularly following the character's absence from the first trailer for Infinity War.
With a new haircut and possibly and a new costume that is mostly kept under wraps, fans are eager to see what's in store for Hawkeye. But will that include the character taking on the much-rumored new identity of Ronin? "I can't get into the theories," Renner replied. "I know [Ronin] is in the comics, but otherwise I don't really know anything about that stuff."
Debuting May 4, 2018, director Anthony and Joe Russo' Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
