Jeremy Renner May Be Hawkeye, Not Captain America


Though he is interested to be one of the superheroes in 'The Avengers', the actor claims 'no offer has been made' by Marvel Studios.

Jeremy Renner has recently sat down with Empire magazine to talk about his possibility of playing one of the superheroes in upcoming movie "The Avengers". When asked if he may fill the vacant position for Captain America, "The Hurt Locker" actor said he has not been offered for that part, but admitting that he is interested to play another character, Hawkeye.

"I don't know if I'd be right for Captain America. I met with the Marvel guys, actually, but we didn't talk about Captain America," Renner stated. He then immediately added, "But one of the writers, Zak Penn, we've become friends over time and he was thinking maybe Hawkeye could be interesting. He sounds like an interesting character."

Moreover, the 38-year-old star offered a speculation that the master archer will be introduced in another movie adaptation of Marvel comic, "Thor", before he appears in "The Avengers". "If I was a betting man, I would bet that Hawkeye would probably show up in 'Thor', and then be in 'The Avengers'," Renner enthused. "But do I know for sure? I can't say. But I'd love for that to happen. It'd be fun."

Despite his desire to be part of the film, Renner noted that "no offer has been made" and believed "there's a little ways from that." Additionally, he admitted, "I'm just happy to get considered for big franchise roles like that. I'm not [doing the] casting. If they see me that way, right on. If they don't, I'm ok with it."

"The Avengers" will be the first movie that brings together the superhero team of Marvel Comics characters, such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more, as they are forced to band together to battle the biggest foe they've ever faced. Planned to be released in the U.S. on May 4, 2012, the script will be provided by Zak Penn.
