Fans of the bow-wielding "Avengers" archer rejoice! According to Jeremy Renner himself, Hawkeye could show up in a non-"Avengers" movie.
In an article published on Collider.com today, the Oscar-nominated actor says that he's heard "rumblings" that Hawkeye will appear in the next "Captain America" film. Anthony and Joe Russo, who co-directed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," will return to direct the third Cap movie, which is already in pre-production. It could be Renner's most prominent performance as Hawkeye yet - he had a very brief cameo in "Thor" and was a mind-controlled goon for the bad guy during most of "The Avengers."
In related "Captain America" news, "The Winter Soldier" ended 20-week U.S. theatrical run on August 21 with a total domestic box office haul of $259.8 million. Only the three "Iron Man" films and "The Avengers" have been bigger box office hits for Marvel -- but "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already made $251.8 million and is still in the first month of its U.S. theatrical run.
Renner's next Marvel Studios appearance will be in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" next year, while "Captain America 3" is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
