If anyone thought Endgame would be the beginning of the end for the Avengers, they were dead wrong. The recently-released WandaVision on Disney+ is just the beginning of the Marvel Studios TV shows that are on the way. Tons of Marvel characters are getting their own series, including Loki, The Falcon and Bucky Barnes, and of course Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner is reprising his role as the archer Avenger for a Hawkeye series. Although his series won't release until the end of this year, Renner appears to be gearing up to jump back into his superhero role and having a great time doing it.
Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye may not have any superhuman powers, but that almost makes his super-spy-secret-archer persona way cooler. Not only that, but he does his world-saving in between being a loving husband and dad, and if that doesn’t make him superhuman, I don’t know what would. Renner recently posted a “training video” to his Twitter that showcases his crime-fighting abilities. While he may be stuck quarantining at home, at least he’s putting the time to good use. I mean, look at that form:
This appears to just be further proof of Marvel’s casting abilities and how they match up actors to their characters. Just look at Robert Downey Jr - he basically is Tony Stark. It’s getting more and more clear that Jeremy Renner is pretty close to the real life Hawkeye too. He’s a great dad, has the archer stance, and the bow to match. It all checks out, and it doesn’t even matter that the bow is plastic.
You may have thought the bow was his kid’s, but it’s looking more like Jeremy Renner actually bought it for himself. Renner posted pictures of himself and his little one on Instagram playing archer with the hashtag “training”, alluding to his Marvel alter ego and reminding us that there is more Hawkeye in our future.
Sure, it looks good, but did he hit the bullseye? Who are we kidding, he probably did. He’s been Hawkeye for like ten years now; he must have picked up something from his Marvel character. Although Jeremy Renner's series won't be out for a while, the first two episodes of WandaVision are available on Disney+ with the other five episodes to be released weekly.
Hawkeye’s series can be expected to hit Disney+ at the end of this year, and we can expect many more Marvel series to be released in the couple years, so keep checking back with CinemaBlend for updates.
