You’re about to get your very first ever look at Jeremy Renner as the superhero Hawkeye, but it’s not much of a look. He shows up in this new clip from Thor, but only in the background, in the rain and mud, way up in the air, and turned away from the camera. If they showed us any less of him, there wouldn’t be anything there at all.
Don’t worry though. There will be plenty more of him in the movie as confirmed during our coverage of Cinema Con. Hawkeye isn’t getting his own movie, but he seems set to show up in a lot of Marvel’s other movies. In addition to showing up in Thor for an unspecified length of time, he’ll also play a prominent role in The Avengers. For now, this is what we’ve got.
Watch this clip from Thor in which the God of Thunder struggles to beat up a security guard, and Hawkeye just sort of lurks in the background to watch.
If you're unfamiliar with Hawkeye, all you really need to know is that he's a prominent Marvel hero. He doesn't have any flashy super powers, not exactly, he's just an expert marksman with a lot of different arrows and body honed to the peak superb physical fitness. He shoots stuff really good. Useful, if you're in the fighting villainy game.
I’d call bs on this if Hawkeye wasn’t already confirmed to have a part in the movie.
