Jeremy Renner wants Hawkeye to rule the Avengers

Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner wants to see Clint Barton lead the Avengers in the MCU because of the character’s history with the West Coast Avengers.

Jeremy Renner wants to see Hawk Eye lead the next iteration of the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Renner made his MCU debut as Clint Barton in 2011 Thor, as he made a cameo appearance which introduced the archer to the public before his return to The Avengers. He then returns in three films, with Avengers: Endgame his last appearance. It happened after Hawkeye was kicked out of Avengers: Infinity War, which has not escaped MCU fans. Through it all, Renner’s Clint Barton has served primarily as a supporting character for the MCU’s greatest heroes.

Hawkeye’s time as a side character is coming to an end now thanks to Hawk Eye. The Disney + series is finally giving Jeremy Renner a chance to star in an MCU project. Hawk Eye continues his story after Avengers: Endgame as Clint spends the days leading up to Christmas in New York City with his family. It was around this time that he met Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), and the two were then embroiled in an adventure with an Avengers-level threat. The first reactions to Hawk Eye were pretty positive, but many fans wondered what the future of Clint Barton’s MCU would look like after the Disney + series.

As part of the promotion of Hawk Eyethe debut of Disney +, Jeremy Renner spoke BBC Radio about the series and its MCU future. The interviewer mentioned how Hawkeye has been somewhat underused by Marvel Studios at this point, which has led Renner to talk about what he wants to do with the Archer next. His greatest hope is for Hawkeye to become the next leader of the Avengers, as Renner cited Hawkeye’s time leading the West Coast Avengers in the comics as a reason he could step in with Tony Stark and Steve Rogers who aren’t. more there.

“I think where you mentioned the word, like ‘underutilized.’ Well listen, he was the head of West Coast Avengers. I would personally like to see him in that kind of a leading role of Captain America. .In fact, I think he would manage to take the lead and do those kinds of things, right? Um … as a quarterback, instead of being a wider receiver. kind of stuff, right? Like, that would be really interesting, I think, to see him do that. “

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in The Avengers

Hawkeye has taken on a leading role on several occasions in the comics, including the West Coast Avengers. The MCU could take him down this path if Renner is still interested in playing Clint Barton. It would also be another way for Marvel to increase the number of super-teams in the MCU by giving the West Coast its own Avengers team. Hawkeye could also take on a leadership role as the head of the main Avengers team or even with the Thunderbolts. Barton led the Thunderbolts for a while in the comics, and many fans hoped that this could be the direction of his MCU story.

Renner is certainly right that Hawkeye could fill the Avengers void and take on the leadership position, but he’s not the only hero to claim that responsibility. He has seniority among the current heroes of the MCU, as it’s hard to imagine Thor or the Hulk wanting to lead the Avengers. Instead, Hawkeye might have to face off against new heroes like Sam Wilson’s Captain America or Captain Marvel. Some in the MCU have also speculated that Wasp, Spider-Man, or Doctor Strange are solid options as well. So only time will tell if Hawk Eye has a chance to lead the Avengers in the future.
