Jeremy Renner Confirms His Role in 'Infinity War'

It’s okay, everyone, you can stop panicking.

Avengers: Infinity War is going to be a big movie with a lot of different characters showing up, and amid the bursts of news and gossip we’ve been getting, fans have been speculating about which favorite characters are going to be turning up, and which might be left out for the sake of snappy, focused storytelling.

Well, if you were wondering whether your personal favorite Avenger would make the cut for the intergalactic buddy war movie, have no fear: Jeremy Renner has confirmed that he’s definitely back for Infinity War.

Across the internet, cheers were heard, as all of Hawkguy’s eager, loyal fans embraced each other, crying tears of joy.

That’s his character’s name, right? Hawkguy?

For those of you (most of you) who might have been distracted by the big green monster or the flying robot man in Age of Ultron or Civil War, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkguy is the one who Marvel keep trying to make audiences love, in spite of any really defining attributes to his character.

Remember when they gave Hawkguy a wife and kids, so that you’d care if they killed him? Then they didn’t even bother killing him.

Powerful cinema, indeed.

Anyway, Jeremy Renner has revealed that Hawkguy is definitely going to be back for Infinity War and whatever unannounced Avengers movie comes after it, despite nobody really caring.

Look forward to watching a guy with a bow and arrow trying to take down Thanos, the Mad Titan. Maybe if he shoots an arrow right into the big purple guy’s eye, that might slightly annoy him?

Renner is concerned, though, that his work on Avengers might keep him out of the next Mission Impossible movie. Speaking to Collider, Renner said:

“I know that there might be some conflict with schedules, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. ‘Avengers’ is going to eat up a lot of next year, gladly, but I certainly hope that won’t get in the way of Tom and I and the gang getting back together, because I’d love to.”

It’s good that Renner is eager to get the gang back together and all, but this does raise a pretty important question.

Was Jeremy Renner in the last Mission Impossible movie?

It’s hard to be certain, as he’s often indistinguishable from a store window dummy or a pile of sardonic moss.

The good news is, this means he’ll be easily replaceable in the next Mission Impossible movie, if he’s busy being useless on the set of Infinity War.

If the Bourne series can replace Renner by simply giving Matt Damon more money, the Mission Impossible franchise will probably be fine.
