Netflix has become a key part in Marvel’s strategy. Shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones have become massive hits and have introduced many different and unique characters into the Marvel universe. Could this platform be an opportunity to some big screen crossovers?
During a panel at Silicon Valley Comic Con, Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) was asked if he would have any interested in doing a Hawkeye series on Netflix, similar to that of Daredevil or the upcoming Luke Cage.
“I think that’s actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it. I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you’re doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I’d be open to it. Not up to me, though.”
Later on he was asked if he would like to do a solo movie with Black Widow and without hesitation he responded, “In a second. I’d love to do that.”
Renner can be seen next as Hawkeye in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Get ready to choose your side when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
“Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
