Jeremy Renner told producers to kill off Hawkeye while filming "The Avengers"



  • Renner said during a recent Q&A in London that he was frustrated while filming The Avengers.

  • “In the first Avengers I was just getting to know who Hawkeye was, and then zap, I go round like a zombie, I’m like Loki’s minion, And I’m still not even sure who Hawkeye was at that point. So I’m a little frustrated, because I was so excited to figure out who Hawkeye was.”

  • He told the producers that they could kill him off if they wanted to because he was annoyed at the lack of character development and screen time, and he would fake heart attacks during scenes.

  • “I’m giving you an option, if you just want to kick me out of this movie. Just you know, at any given moment, if you wanna kill me off, daddy’s gonna be having a heart attack.”
