"Whose side are you on?" That's the question the first official piece of Captain America: Civil War art asks, obviously referring to the split between Chris Evans' Steve Rogers and Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in the face of the superhero registration act. Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the movie, tweeted out this cool promo, even though we only get to see it in black and white. The image depicts the two Avengers going head-to-head, as they ask you, the fan, to pick a team.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.Read More
Anyone who saw Marvel's The Avengers three years ago knows that two members of the team, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), were vastly underused. Which is rather ironic since Hawkeye is the only member of the team who hasn't gotten a stand alone movie. While there is no doubt that Hawkeye is a supremely skilled archer, it's easy to see why a character like his could fall by the wayside, on the same team as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). As Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters with preview screenings tomorrow night, Jeremy Renner appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he put his "super powers" on display, through song.
The actor sang a parody of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud," where he ran down a list of everything that makes him special, besides his talents as an archer. There is even a rather humorous nod to Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Of course, we won't see any of the powers from this humorous parody on the big screen this weekend, but this superhero sequel does truly showcase Hawkeye as an important member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, something that was lacking from 2012's Marvel's The Avengers.Read More
Buried within a Heat Vision Blog story about Jeremy Renner signing on to star in the sci-fi drama Story of Your Life is a brief tidbit that supposedly confirms the actor will reprise his role as Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War. The actor is reportedly set to start shooting the sequel sometime this spring, before moving on to Story of Your Life, where he stars alongside Amy Adams, in mid-June. This report has yet to be confirmed by Marvel at this time, but if it turns out to be true, it seems almost the entire Avengers team will be returning for Captain America: Civil War.
Chris Evans will be back as Captain America, with Robert Downey Jr. also set to reprise his role as Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson returning as Black Widow. If Jeremy Renner is coming back as Hawkeye, then the only two Avengers who won't be present are Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Even if Hawkeye is coming back, it isn't known how he will fit into the story quite yet.Read More
Avengers: Age of Ultron star Jeremy Renner has signed on to join Amy Adams in Paramount's sci-fi drama Story of Your Life. The project is based on the Hugo and Nebula-winning short story of the same name by Ted Chiang. Story of Your Life will actually serve as a reunion for both Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams, who both starred in the 2013 Best Picture nominee American Hustle.
Eric Heisserer (The Thing, Hours) wrote the adapted screenplay, which centers on alien spacecrafts that have landed all over the world. Amy Adams plays an expert linguist who has been recruited by the U.S. government to try and communicate with the aliens, to see if they come in peace or if they are a threat to mankind. As she begins to find out why the aliens are here, she experiences intense flashbacks that offer clues to what these creatures truly want. Jeremy Renner is playing a physics professor who is paired up with the linguist by the government to help her communicate with the aliens.Read More
