Marvel Studios and Netflix launched Daredevil season two this past weekend, and considering the hype of including major characters like Punisher and Elektra, not to mention the good willed sewed with the tremendous first season, it’s safe to say it was another hit. Between Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the building hype for the fall premiere of Luke Cage, and the presently in pre-production Iron Fist, Netflix is where its at for Marvel characters (at least until Civil War comes out), so why not bring other established Marvel characters to Netflix? Hawkeye for example? The man who plays Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner, has some thoughts on that. (more…)
Jeremy Renner took to Twitter today to debut his new Hawkeye costume for Captain America: Civil War. He previously announced this weekend at Wizard World Chicago that, of all his Hawkeye get-ups, this latest one is his favorite. Take a peek and judge for yourself! (more…)
A late summer treat has arrived in the form of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the latest film in the spy film series that seems to be getting better with age. Indeed, each chapter of the Mission: Impossible franchise seems to refine what’s come before, building one on top of the other by taking away what doesn’t work and keeping the things that do work. As a result, this new mission is the best Mission yet. A high-stakes thrill ride of big action set pieces tied together with a compelling story and all the usual spy movie trappings. No one’s reinventing the wheel here, but like the man said, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. (more…)
While Captain America: Civil War shooting continues in Atlanta Ga. Jeremy Renner is keeping himself amused and in touch with fans through twitter. Over the weekend he visited Six Flags over Georgia and tweeted out a new promotional piece which asks us that important Civil War question, “What side are you on?” (more…)
Even this age of consistent big event movies, it’s hard to think of anything as big as Avengers: Age of Ultron. The first blockbuster Avengers was a minor miracle of form and function, taking three characters with their own film series, as well as a myriad of supporting characters, and brought them all together in a fun, action-packed and character-driven adventure that also reflected the specific voice of its filmmaker. Looking back, watching The Avengers unfold, Joss Whedon made it look too easy, which is why Ultron seems all the more susceptible to “sequelitis.” Age of Ultron is bigger, louder and even more stuffed with characters, references and action than the first, but while the endeavor seems at times to be getting away from Whedon, he does seem to achieve everything the movie needed, and wanted to do.

It’s not the Internet unless there is some online controversy to get all gabby about. Instead of the normal shenanigans from Miley Cyrus or ass-hatery from Kanye West, which we’ve all come to expect, this time it’s a couple of superheroes who have let slip a case of buffoonery.
During a recent Digital Spy interview Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, the two Age of Ultron stars were asked how they felt about Black Widow pairing up with Bruce instead of Hawkeye or Cap (as many fans had hoped), and replied by calling her a “slut” and a “whore”.
Couple of guys said something stupid while trying to be funny, and how quickly the fan-boys turn on them – judging them as bad people forever.
Watch the video below and judge for yourself. (more…)
It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.
Following the reveal of Black Widow, Hot Toys has released a first look at the 1/6th scale Hawkeye Collectible Figure! The sharp shooting Avenger is specially crafted based on the image of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly-developed head sculpt, new outfit, improved articulations for action poses, freshly designed bow and arrows, and a specially designed figure stand.
Not as good as the new Avenging Hawkeye figure, because there is no Pizza Dog. But it will be a must-have if you wanna complete your Avengers AOU collection. That, and who couldn’t do with a little more Jeremy Renner in their lives. He’s like a real life grumpy cat. (more…)
In the comic books, Hawkeye has been one of the longest serving Avengers and a constant presence on the team since the 1960s, he was even the leader of the West Coast Avengers. In the movies though, Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner, has kind of gotten the short shrift with a small appearance in Thor, then spending the balance of The Avengers under Loki’s control, and then having to get written out of Captain America: The Winter Soldier because of scheduling. Of all the Avengers, it’s Hawkeye who could really use some extra screentime, and it looks like he’s going to get it as the archer is joining the swelling ranks of Captain America: Civil War. (more…)
For a guy who was considered as getting short-changed in ‘The Avengers,’ Jeremy Renner gets to be as talkative as his costars. Mark Ruffalo wants an “environmentally themed” Hulk film, Chris Evans might/might not quit acting, Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t signed on for ‘Iron Man 4,’ Chris Hemsworth will hang up his hammer after the contract, and everyone but Scarlett Johansson is gunning for a ‘Black Widow’ movie. With less screen time than his pals, Renner’s Hawkeye played the quiet assassin on both teams. And he’s been vocal about his character ever since. From rumors of leaving the franchise, to being disenchanted with his initial role, Renner’s been a Chatty Cathy from jump. And today we hear that he’s gunning for even less screen time for Hawkeye. So to speak. (more…)
