We’re about a month away from the biggest comic book movie season ever, which means it’s time for some juicy news bits to float on by. There’s some great stuff about the upcoming Green Lantern film, which has already come out.
With two more of the four Avengers prequels (which already include Iron Man 2 and Incredible Hulk) hitting theaters this summer, questions about crossover are bound to come up. The Howard Stark cameo was already slightly spoiled in last week’s Captain America: The First Avenger trailer, but who will be the big reveal in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor?
Well, it looks like Cinema Blend has broke the spoilerific (take the hint! walk away now if you don’t want this ruined.) news that we will, in fact, be getting a Jeremy Renner cameo as Hawkeye in the upcoming flick. Cinema Blend’s got the report.
The scene we saw featured Renner as Hawkeye, working with the infamous Agent Coulson, played as he was in the Iron Man movies, by Clark Gregg. The scene features Hawkeye using his famous bow and arrow and he has multiple lines, so while we’re talking about something a little more than a momentary cameo, there’s no way to know if his involvement will go any further than that one scene.
The news doesn’t come as that much of a shock, if you do a little process of elimination with the other characters. We know we won’t see Tony Stark. Cap shouldn’t be thawed out yet. Hulk has already been teased, and we know that the Pyms haven’t even been cast yet. Sure Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson will be there, but he doesn’t really count.
Another question that has to be asked? Will we get purple spandex? Let’s hope not.
