There's one in every movie, especially in super hero flicks. Halle Berry was once underwhelmed by her screen time as Storm in the X-Men sequel, I believe. Now after admitting how impressed I was with Joss Whedon's development of multiple characters and compelling storylines in The Avengers, it turns out one Avenger wasn't so pleased with his role in the blockbuster. With The Bourne Legacy coming out this week, Jeremy Renner felt the need to air some dirty laundry about his thoughts on playing Hawkeye, the LA Times reports.
Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen The Avengers yet, Renner thorougly explains Hawkeye's story flaws.
"For 90% of the movie I'm not the character I signed on to play," he said, referring to Hawkeye being brainwashed by Loki early in the film.
"It's kind of a vacancy. [He's] not even a bad guy, because there's not really a consciousness to him. To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses... I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No."
"Is [Hawkeye] working for SHIELD or not? There's a lot of unanswered questions, even for me," he added.
Is this all posturing for a Hawkeye spin-off or does Renner really have a beef with Whedon and co.? You be the judge...
