Jeremy Renner will cameo as Hawkeye in next summer’s “Thor”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel has a history of teasing its upcoming films in its current projects. Think of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury cameo at the end of the original “Iron Man,” Robert Downey Jr. appearing as Tony Stark at the end of “The Incredible Hulk,” and the sight of Thor’s mystical hammer at the end of last summer’s “Iron Man 2.”

So it should come as no surprise that “Thor,” which kicks off the 2011 summer blockbuster season in May, will feature an important “Avengers” tie as Marvel ramps up to the 2012 “Avengers” film.

According to The Wrap, Jeremy Renner of “The Hurt Locker” will appear in “Thor” as Hawkeye, the master archer he’ll play in Joss Whedon’s “Avengers.”

“An individual who has seen an early cut of “Thor” confirmed to TheWrap that Renner’s Hawkeye appears in the film, although the person declined to elaborate on the context of the character’s appearance or when it will occur. They did, however, confirm [Sam] Jackson’s earlier statements that Nick Fury does not appear in ‘Thor,’” The Wrap reports.

Again, no real surprise, though it is pretty cool that Renner’s little-known Hawkeye (an admitted fan favorite) will get the celebrated cameo over someone more popular like The Hulk or Iron Man. Hawkeye gets a lot of love for being a sarcastic hero, and if Renner plays him right (like I think he can), his character could end up stealing “The Avengers” away from his A-list co-stars.

“Thor” opens on May 6. Look for Renner.
