Jeremy Renner Wants to Do a Hawkeye and Black Widow Movie
I think there are a good amount of Marvel fans out there that would like to see Black Widow and Hawkeye team up in a movie together. The two make a great team, and it's always fun watching them fight alongside each other. There are several stories they could tell involving these characters if Marvel Studios were to ever do it, but I doubt that it's in their plans. That doesn't mean that Jeremy Renner wouldn't want to see it happen!
During an interview with the British newspaper Metro (via Edmonton Sun), Renner says that it makes sense to see the two characters team up for a film.
"I always thought it would make sense early on to do a Hawkeye/Widow movie because they’re quite similar – they don’t have powers, have high skill sets, and have history together, but I don’t think there are any discussions about that happening. I’d love to do it though."
If this film were to happen it might be cool to see them explore the Budapest storyline that has been mentioned in the MCU. During the mission, they were involved in a situation that would later be remembered by Romanoff during the Battle of New York, as one of the fights she and Barton had against one of the Chitauri groups reminded her of Budapest. Alexander Pierce also mentioned that her time in Budapest would also be exposed if she leaked S.H.I.E.L.D.'s (Hydra's?) exploits.
Renner goes on to talk about the friendships he's made while making these films:
"We’ve become great friends. I see Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson quite a lot. Chris Hemsworth has been so busy I haven’t hung out with him for a while and Elizabeth Olsen is a neighbor, so I see her quite often."
This isn't the first time that Renner has talked about a Black Widow and Hawkeye team-up. He previously said it would make a great Netflix series. Would you rather have a Black Widow and Hawkeye movie or Netflix series?
