Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye the Avenger
Hawkeye from Marvel Comics
Hawkeye the marksman is one of the first truly non-superpowered humans to join the Avengers (in Avengers # 16). Clint Barton, better known as Hawkeye, started his comics career as a villain, teaming up with the bad guy Swordsman, and later with Russian spy/agent/assassin, the Black Widow to battle against Iron Man. Both Hawkeye and Black Widow would eventually join Iron Man in the Avengers.
In the 2012 Marvel Studios Avengers Movie, Hawkeye is played by Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner. Renner's Hawkeye character enjoyed a brief, rain-soaked cameo in the Thor movie in 2011, as a set-up for the upcoming Avengers flick.
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow
In the comics, Hawkeye and the Black Widow carried on a rather torrid affair, which ended badly and brougth Hawkeye to blows with Black Widow's newer lover, Daredevil. What does the movie version of the Avengers hold for this dynamic couple? The photo above of Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johnasson looks fairly intimate, conversation-wise.
