A while back there were rumors swirling around of someone making a secret cameo in the upcoming film Thor. Up until now, we had no idea as to who it was and we could only guess. Now we may have some confirmation. Be warned, if you don’t want the cameo to be spoiled then please don’t read any further.
According to The Wrap, Jeremy Renner will have a cameo in Thor, playing the character Hawkeye. Supposedly someone who saw an early cut of the film leaked the news that Renner’s Hawkeye will appear and that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury would not make an appearance.
Renner’s appearance makes sense since he will be appearing in Marvel’s The Avengers, which is hitting theatres in 2012. Why or how he will figure into Thor is unknown but you can be sure that he’ll be making an appearance in one way or another.
Marvel fans sure have a busy schedule coming up as Marvel continues to expand their universe. I’m still a bit skeptical of the entire Marvel universe thing coming to film. They’ve already messed up Iron Man 2, and drove Jon Favreau out of the franchise. I think they’re getting a bit too ambitious and while I’m excited to see how all the films play out, it could get messy. Nevertheless, I’ll definitely be seeing them and I’m looking forward to seeing it all play out.
Thor opens May 5, 2011; The First Avenger: Captain America hits July 22, 2011 and The Avengers is scheduled to debut May 4, 2012.
