Robert Downey Jr. hints about Jeremy Renner’s (Clint Barton / Hawkeye) pivotal role in Marvel’s upcoming American superhero film, Avengers Age Of Ultron in a recent interview.
Speaking with Variety, He said: “This one is a very ambitious sequel. If you read it, it’s dense, it’s smart. Joss [Whedon] is a really smart guy.
My 2-year-old is crazy about Hawkeye, and I think Jeremy [Renner] has a lot to do with the plot. There’s always so many plates to spin to get these things half-right, and I’m really excited about this one.”
When asked “how many more of these Marvel movies can be there in future”, He replied: “The smart money is you have to look at everybody’s age. I’ll put myself at the top of the list. Sooner or later, they’ve got to start over and get somebody young. I’m not there with them yet.
It really is the closest thing to being a beloved contract player with a big old-timey studio that there is right now. When you really think about it at the end of the day, these films are entertainment largely driven by young folks.
There is something very honorable about that. I run into kids wearing “Captain America” masks. My kid believes that Captain America is real.”
The film features Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, with new additions to the cast Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and James Spader as Ultron.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
