Jeremy Renner on Hawkeye and Avengers

Jeremy Renner, breakout star of The Hurt Locker , has spoken out again on the rumours that he'll be playing Hawkeye for Marvel.

The net has been a-buzz with news that Jeremy Renner has been cast as Hawkeye in Thor and The Avengers , after he said that he had been in talks with the studio.

He thinks he may have to wait a while before he gets any confirmation though.

He says: "They were just talking, 'Like maybe we should consider maybe hiring Hawkeye now' but there's no director on Avengers so they don't want to force-feed the director".

Renner also hints at a more reality-based take on the character: "It's not going to be the guy with the big purple (mask), it's not going to be a guy in tights".

"It's going to be a guy in sunglasses and a vest".

Renner certainly seems like a good fit for the role, as he can handle the action, and has proven his acting chops in intense roles.
