Jeremy Renner has been in some of the greatest franchises of all time, and in all of them, he is consistently an incredibly gifted supporting actor, who brings his own natural wit and charm to his roles. And he just so happens to have a new independent movie out this weekend, Arrival, which is simply incredible. The man seems to find time for anything that he is wanting to do, but it sounds like his streak of scheduling luck might be coming to an end.
While speaking to Collider about the new film, he was asked what the future had to hold for Renner’s character in the Mission Impossible franchise. Renner had this to say:
“I’m not sure what’s happening! I know that they’re really wanting to get it going, and I haven’t spoken to Tom about ultimately where it’s at. I know that there might be some conflict with schedules, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Avengers is going to eat up a lot of next year – gladly – but I certainly hope that won’t get in the way of Tom and I and the gang getting back together, because I’d love to.”
So it sounds like Renner has his priorities already in mind when it comes to juggling the two massive cinematic blockbusters, and it sounds like he is leaning more towards Captain America and Iron Man than spy extraordinaire, Ethan Hunt. I have loved Renner in everything that he does, and he seems to bring an extra layer of dry and sarcastic comedy to everything he signs on to. I would very much enjoy seeing him back in action with Tom Cruise, but I think if given the choice, I’d rather see the end of Hawkeye’s arc that started in the first Avengers film.
You can see Jeremy Renner in Dennis Villeneuve’s new film, Arrival, in theaters now.
