Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner revealed he would like to see the Avenger take on a Captain America leadership role next
With both Iron Man and Captain America out of the picture in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Endgame, fans have been trying to figure out who could lead the team next. During a recent interview with Ali Plumb at BBC Radio, Jeremy Renner shared that he would like to see Hawkeye lead at some point:
“I think where you mentioned the word ‘under utilized,’ well look, he was the leader of the West Coast Avengers. I would personally love to see him be in that sort of Captain America leader role. Actually, which, I think he would succeed in. Calling the shots and doing these types of things, right? As a quarterback, instead of being more like a wide receiver, these types of things, right? That would be really interesting, I think, to see him do.”
Jeremy Renner makes a good point about Hawkeye leading the West Coast Avengers in the comics. Hawkeye is also one of the few original Avengers left, so perhaps he might be a dark horse to lead the team in the future.
Here is the synopsis for Hawkeye:
“Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.”
Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Brian d’Arcy James, and Alaqua Cox. Florence Pugh is expected to return in her Black Widow role.
Hawkeye is set to premiere with two episodes on November 24, exclusively on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the future of the Avengers and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
