Character posters for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron have come in thick and fast over the past few days, with all of the key players adorning their own one-sheet as marketing for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel kicks into high gear. And today, the studio has unveiled Hawkeye’s character poster, with star Jeremy Renner also revealing some intriguing tidbits on the future of the sidelined sharpshooter.
For one, it appears as though Renner’s S.H.I.E.L.D. agent will play a much bigger part in Age of Ultron, and the actor even hinted that he may play the archer for a solo movie should the opportunity present itself.
I think most actors will sign on to do, like… ‘Captain America’ 1-3 and then ‘The Avengers’ 1-3, and then you’re done. For me, I signed on to ‘The Avengers’ 1-3 and then ‘Hawk-Eye,’ in case they want to do a ‘Hawk-Eye’ spin-off.
It’s difficult to imagine a reality in which Marvel greenlights a Hawkeye spinoff movie, given the sheer amount of superhero films, sequels and spinoffs already cramming up the studio’s slate all the way into 2019. Plus, when you consider the amount of fan attention directed at a potential Hulk standalone picture, it seems unlikely that a film focusing solely on Renner’s character will garner the same amount of hype.
Whatever the outcome, Avengers: Age of Ultron will blast into theaters on May 1, 2015. For now, be sure to check out Hawkeye’s character poster and let us know what you make of the potential spinoff movie in the comments.
