Jeremy Renner Teases a 'Hawkeye' Movie: I "Always Have Been Interested"
Is it time for Hawkeye to go solo?
Jeremy Renner thinks so.
"Am I interested? Always have been interested. I always love Clint, and in the last Avengers: Age of Ultron, we got to dive into him some more," Renner said of the possibility of a Hawkeye solo film during a Reddit AMA. "Very excited about the outcome of it, and where it can go in the future."

Renner has previously teased that Hawkeye could show up in a third Captain America movie, and in Thursday's AMA, he added that the ball is in Marvel Studios' court when it comes to the possibility of a solo film.
"It all comes down to the content, and really how the puppeteers at Marvel can manifest a story that's worthy of a solo movie," he said. "Not sure what that is, or how that is, but I'm confident they can do whatever they want, if they want to do it. And I'd be game."
Renner also tackled why Hawkeye didn't help out his Avengers pals in Iron Man 3 or Captain America: Winter Soldier — you know, when the President of the United States got kidnapped and Captain America became the world's most wanted man.
"I think you're going to find out in Avengers: Age of Ultron," Renner teased.
Renner also fielded a question about the possibility of him following in Samuel L. Jackson's footsteps and showing up on ABC's Agents of SHIELD.
"It's not something I sit and think about. But I suppose if it was offered up, there's an outside chance it could happen," Renner said. "I haven't seen the show, so I don't know how it works, but I'm sure the folks at Marvel have ideas, and when they're strong enough, they'll bring 'em to me. But I love me some Clark Gregg, he's so great. We killed him and brought him back to life to do Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he's so good!"
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has previously said Hawkeye and The Hulk will get the spotlight in Age of Ultron.
