Jeremy Renner will be making a brief appearance as Hawkeye in the upcoming Thor. It’s all part of Marvel’s plan to tease Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers until anticipation has reached a fever pitched, and then consequently plummeted.
Seriously, did the studio learn nothing from Iron Man 2? That movie felt like one long trailer for The Avengers, and I don’t blame Jon Favreau as it’s well known that he hated the cameos too. One or two cameos in Thor would be acceptable, but let’s not have characters tripping over Captain America‘s shield or stepping on Bruce Banner’s toe. Along with the Renner news, The Wrap is also reporting that Nick Fury will NOT appear in Thor. I’ll believe it after the end credits are finished rolling. Sam Jackson always finds a way to sneak in.
