Jeremy Renner Teases Possible Captain America 3 Role

ON

Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s pairing of Chris Evans’ Cap and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was a decided hit, helping the recent Marvel Studios film gross more than $700 million worldwide. Today, in a conversation with MTV, Marvel’s The Avengers star Jeremy Renner teases that Captain America 3 could now get a visit from his Hawkeye.

“I’m happy to be the ensemble,” Renner says. “I’m not scratching or clawing to do a solo movie by any means. I think he’s a utility guy that can bounce around into other people’s universes a little bit, especially ‘Cap 3.’ There’s whispers of that.”

You can check out Renner’s full thoughts in the video below, where the star also teases that next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature Hawkeye in a major way.

Set for release on May 1, 2015, Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard. Captain America 3, meanwhile, is slated for release on May 6, 2016 while Renner’s latest, Kill the Messenger, arrives in a limited release October 10, expanding over the following two Fridays.
