Shadowy Hawkeye Watches Over New Thor Clip


Marvel has released a new clip from “Thor” that reveals your first look at Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Okay, so it’s basically some guy standing on some booth thing hanging in the sky while aiming down with a compound bow at Thor as he’s fighting a huge black dude. You can’t really see the mysterious man’s face or make out any kind of details in regards to his costume, and honestly, it could be anyone from Kenneth Branagh himself to actually Jeremy Renner up there, but from what we’ve read about Hawkeye’s cameo in the movie, this looks like a part of it.

“Thor” stars Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Clark Gregg, Colm Feore, Tadanobu Asano, Adriana Barraza, Joshua Dallas, Matt Battaglia, and is due out May 6, 2011.

Here’s a closer look at the mysterious figure:

    Very cool! It has to be Hawkeye! What other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents carry a bow and arrows?

  • Vampelle

    if that is the only cameo that what the point.
    hardly u see it for few seconds even though u cant tell until high up the brightness

    • Dedpool

      That’s what a cameo is. I’m srue he’ll actually be seen for a moment too later but he’s really only being introduced, much liek the idea of the “Ten Rings” in IM and the nod to “Incredible Hulk” in IM2.

    • Nix

      It was previously reported that Hawkeye does get an extended cameo, complete with a couple of lines. Though whether he appears again past this one sequence is up in the air.

    • Juggernaut

      I’m sure that since we’ve already heard about an extende cameo that this is just a teaser for the fans in the beginning. Hopefully we get to see the total package in action at some point. Although, as Dedpool pointed out, this, in essence IS a cameo.

    That was a pretty weak fight scene.

    • Superfreak

      Oh come on! That kick to the head seems vicious to me. Not every action movie have to have slo-mo and close up shots to make it work (only Snyder thinks otherwise, and look what happened to Sucker Punch). Story rules, dude.

      • Indie

        I’m not saying it needs slow-mo or close ups, but better acting. It looks like a WWE wrestling match only slightly better scripted. But it’s just one scene I’m not judging the whole movie.

  • Bigtimepieces

    this whole movie seems WEAK!!!!

    • Superfreak

      No it doesn’t. There is a nice buzz about the movie heading to opening day. The trailers have been great. And feedbacks from those who have seen test screenings of the movie have been very positive.

  • Eagle Eye

    hey, remember, this is thor’s debut, so Hawkeye won’t have a huge part in it but also as nix says, he has been said to have a extended appearence, so who knows, maybe he will be like Black Widow or agent choulson, hell apear a few times!!

  • Ironfist fan# rogernator5000

    When I first saw it I thought it was hawkeye on youtube, but there were no comments about it, so I thought otherwise, then I saw this and I know it’s him, the hoodie thing looks like green arrow from smallville

  • Alwin Oz

    you know, if you would have SEEN the movie, you can even hear and see a dialogue between the archer guy and the SHIELD boss, and SEE and HEAR it is Jeremy Renner and get a BETTER glimpse of his suit, its pretty obvious he’s an important character in the next movie, the avengers wasn’t it? get your act on people, get some pics of Renner talking to SHIELD boss up there.
