‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ Director Confirms Hawkeye Won’t Be In Film

Hawkeye, Black Widow, Jeremy Renner

Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed took to Twitter a couple of days ago to dismiss the rumor that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be making an appearance in the film. According to Reed, this rumor fake news and Renner won’t be appearing in the upcoming sequel to Ant-Man. 

“The Russians are swarm-tweeting that Hawkeye is in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP.

You can check out Peyton Reed’s original tweet below.

Earlier this week, a news story was released claiming that Jeremy Renner will no longer be appearing in Mission Impossible 6 because he’d be filming Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. And although the rumor of him appearing alongside Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, it still isn’t clear whether or not Renner will actually be appearing Mission Impossible 6.

Obviously, Marvel likes to use characters from their plethora of films past in new movies. In the last Ant-Man film, Falcon made an appearance and Thor appeared in last fall’s Doctor Strange. Captain America also made a cameo in Thor: The Dark World as Loki pretending to be Captain America. So it’s possible that another Avenger could appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp, but it definitely won’t be Hawkeye.

Who would you want making a cameo in the film? Are you excited for Ant-Man and the Wasp? Let us know in the comments below!

5 Ways Marvel Studios Could Follow & Top ‘Infinity War’

Marvel Studios
Marvel Studios has been building towards a massive confrontation with Thanos since 2012 in The Avengers.  Now that Earth’s Mightest Heroes, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, are finally gearing up to take him down, it seems Marvel is in a bit of a quandary. Obviously they’re not going to just give up on the most successful film franchise of all time, so where do they go from there?

Well, comic fans, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Marvel has a lot of stories to choose from over their 75 year history, but not all of them are right for the big screen. Also, some of our favorite Marvel characters, like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four, have their film rights owned by rival studios, meaning we shouldn’t expect to see them team up with Iron Man or Captain America any time soon.

So, hit the Next button to find out what Marvel Studios should do after Avengers: Infinity War!
