It seems as though Jeremy Renner is ready for action! The Marvel Cinematic Universe star signaled his willingness to return to the role of Hawkeye if Marvel calls.

Back at the start of 2023, Jeremy Renner suffered a horrific snowplow incident while attempting to save his nephew, leaving the Marvel star in recovery for most of last year. With his recent return to acting to film Mayor of Kingstown season 3, Renner expressed his interest in coming back as Hawkeye in the MCU now that he’s gotten stronger.

“I’m always game.” Renner told ET during a recent interview. “I’m gonna be strong enough, that’s for sure. I’ll be ready. All those guys come to my bedside and they’ve been with me all along through this recovery, so… if they want me, they could have me. It would be something.”

Despite Hawkeye seemingly passing the torch from Jeremy Renner down to Hailee Steinfeld, there’s still plenty left for Clint Barton to do in the MCU. Clint and Kate Bishop held the mantle of Hawkeye simultaneously in Marvel comics, often even working together. So it seems as long as Renner has the will, there’s a way for everyone’s favorite archer to return!
