Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow have become staples within the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it looks like the two won’t be teaming up in their own movie. Jeremy Renner spoke with the British newspaper Metro and opened up about why he thinks a movie would make sense starring Hawkeye and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) but conversations haven’t happened about moving forward on that idea.
“I always thought it would make sense early on to do a Hawkeye/Widow movie because they’re quite similar – they don’t have powers, have high skill sets, and have history together, but I don’t think there are any discussions about that happening. I’d love to do it though.”
Johansson and Renner showed off their chemistry in the first Avengers film and that has carried over into following Marvel films like Captain America: Civil War.
Renner is currently working on the next Avengers film and explained that their shooting schedule has been kicking him extremely busy. The cast and crew has really become a family working on these films, Renner explained that he and Johansson remain very close and that Elizabeth Olsen is even his neighbor.
“We’ve shot in London but it’s hard for all of us to be away from our families so we’re doing the next two back-to-back in Atlanta. We’ve become great friends. I see Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson quite a lot. Chris Hemsworth has been so busy I haven’t hung out with him for a while and Elizabeth Olsen is a neighbour, so I see her quite often.”
Avengers: Infinity War is set to be the biggest film as Earth’s mightiest heroes (and beyond) are set to take on Thanos, who has remained in the shadows for most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. While there still is no official plot synopsis for Infinity War, the film is expected to include Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Doctor Strange the Guardians of the Galaxy, and many more (up to 60+ characters) for the upcoming sequel.
Anthony and Joe Russo’s Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is set to open in theaters on May 4, 2018.
