Jeremy Renner Confirmed For Captain America: Civil War
Captain America: Civil War is fast becoming the next Avengers movie.
The latest Assembler confirmed is Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
Renner joins Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Frank Grill as Crossboness, Daniel Bruhl as Baron von Zemo, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, and presumably the new Spider-Man.
The only Avengers to date not confirmed are Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), in addition to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) who was a part of Captain America 2.
The confirmations for Captain America: Civil War can sort of be considered spoilers as obviously the actors survive The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Obviously with Thor and Hulk not listed, we can speculate that Thor might "die," and it's also been rumored that Hulk gets jettisoned to space (or maybe he goes missing or thought dead).
No plot has been released for Captain America: Civil War, but it's a spin on the comic book storyline that sees hero vs. hero battle over superhero registration.
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits May 1, 2015 followed by Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016.
THR first reported the news of Jeremy Renner joining Cap 3.
