Jeremy Renner aka Hawkeye is suspected of having displeased Marvel with his previous negative comments about his role in 2012’s Avengers. The actor last year said that his role was “limited” and without “emotional content” for most of the film due to being manipulated by Loki:
For 90 percent of the movie, I’m not the character I signed on to play. It’s kind of a vacancy. He’s not even a bad guy, because there’s not really a consciousness to him. To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses, I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No.
The source has said that there is a small chance that Renner could return on 2015’s “The Avengers 2” but is more likely to be recast.
Marvel is yet to comment on the future of the character in its films.
Please say it isn’t true!
