From the scale of arrow to bow, how much do you love Hawkeye? Because things are getting interesting in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe as rumour has it that the arrow and bow expert Hawkeye might appear in the next “Captain America” movie!
During an interview with Collider, “Avengers” star Jeremy Renner teased that his character Hawkeye may have a bigger role in “Captain America 3”. “There are rumblings of Captain America 3,” Renner said, “I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man (laughs). I’m trying to stay home and I can’t.”
It looks like the actor is ready to keep himself busy throughout the year until 2015 as he will also be filming for “Mission: Impossible 5” next week and an untitled sequel of “Bourne” next year.
Regarding Renner’s comments, Den of Geek asked “Captain America” directors Joe and Anthony Russo about Hawkeye’s appearance in the film but the Russo brothers refused to confirm and said:
We love Renner and we would love more than anything to play with that character, but we can’t comment on that. What we can say is that there are certain characters that would make sense to be in a Cap movie because he has a close relationship with those characters and they fit into the tone of his universe — meaning the tone that we’re playing with in these individual Cap films. So take from my obtuse response what you would.
With that being said, it seems like the directors still remained open to the possibilities of including Hawkeye in their next film. In fact, it might be a great opportunity for Marvel to create a stand-alone film for Hawkeye too!
How would Hawkeye fit into Captain America movie, you ask? Well, let’s just say comic book is always the answer to your question!
In the comic book, Hawkeye had a beef with Captain America due to his brash attitude. No doubt, it took some time for Hawkeye to respect Captain America and the 2 would eventually become good friends under the leadership of Captain America. But the plot might be different in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe as Hawkeye was controlled by Loki in “The Avengers”.
The film was Hawkeye’s first encounter with Captain America as well and we will see both of them in Marvel’s upcoming film, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier are slated to return to “Captain America 3” and it was rumoured that both actors might become the next Captain America in the future. Set to be released on 6th May 2016, “Captain America 3” is the second film to be released in Phase Three of Marvel Cinematic Universe after Ant-Man.
