One day we may eventually get a standalone “Black Widow” or Ruffalo-led “Hulk” film, but one of the original Avengers who won’t be getting his own movie is Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye.
The actor himself has indicated he’s not pushing for his own film in the Marvel cinematic universe, but speaking at the Silicon Valley Comic Con (via ComicBook.com) this weekend, Renner seemed more open to the idea of a “Daredevil”-esque Hawkeye Netflix series:
“I think that’s actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it. I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you’re doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I’d be open to it. Not up to me, though.”>
The quote follows on from a rumor last year that Netflix and Marvel were looking at just such a possibility – a limited event series following Hawkeye and/or Black Widow. Nothing came of it at the time.
