Now where have I seen this before?
I remember now. Back in November, we first talked about Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) taking up the bow of Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye. Well as of yesterday, it is official according to Avengers director, Joss Whedon. “There will be some avenging that takes place during the film and that’s about all I can tell you,” said Whedon. “I think it’s well-known that Jeremy Renner is joining us as Hawkeye, which is so exciting for me and the rest of the cast.”
Let me first say that I can’t believe that within two years, we will see Cap, Iron Man, Thor and Hawkeye share on scene together on the big screen, and my enthusiasm is pretty intense. Now, I’m still weary about Whedon’s style and how he’ll handle this, but just for casting alone, he gets an “A” so far.
So, readers, what do you think of this decision? Think Renner has got what it takes to do Hawkeye justice?
