Hurt Lockers Jeremy Renner Says He’s Not The Hawkeye, Probably

Recently, Jeremy Renner, sailing along with a smile after the very much deserved attention he is getting for “The Hurt Locker”, quoted that Marvel had asked him if he had any vague clue at all who a dude named Hawkeye was. Jeremy said he didn’t. Marvel sent him some comics. Based on that tender moment, people have been picturing Renner in purple, drawing back the bow, taking aim at evil doers.

Now Jeremy says not so fast sparky. He’s words exactly, from a recent interview with Movieline:

That was just one of those things that got blown way out of proportion. It was an idea. Those Marvel guys, I’m a big fan of them. They’re so smart about how they want to do these things…So they thought Hawkeye is an interesting role, and asked me if I knew anything about him. I said no, so they gave me their sort of spiel on what he was, and I thought that it was kind of interesting. The only reason it came out this early, because Avengers is two years away, is that they’re thinking OK, we may throw him in Thor, we may not, as a cameo. You know what I mean? So there’s truth that we talked about it, but there’s no truth to me doing it.

But of course, as we know, this could just be the required denials as Marvel and Jeremy negotiate. We won’t hold it against him if he still wants the part. I predict extremely good things coming soon for Mr. Renner even if he declines Hawkeye.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
