NOT because of Renner (wonderful actor) but a truly UNINSPIRED choice by Universal! Renner is already the face of two franchises (MI4 & AVENGERS with, god willing, Hawkeye spin-off). That is already a committal of 6-7 movies, with one of them being a spy genre. How many times can we see you do the same sort of thing in different movies before we get tired? Over saturation, especially of a good thing, can kill or severely damage a career…just ask Jude Law I love Jeremy Renner actually, back when I thought HE should’ve been the lead in S.W.A.T. instead of Colin, but this is some of the laziest bullshit studios have pulled in a minute since…well…since they cast him in MI4 LMAO…or Chris Evans as Captain America AND The Human Torch-take your pick, but I digress… I think a very bad creative precedent was set with that Captain America choice. There used to be an unwritten, unsaid non-compete clause amongst studios about putting one high profile actor in the same type of movie for another studio. Well, chuck that out the window, now you will see the SAME “It” boy/“hot” actor in every movie for every studio (not an over reaction, look at the short lists for AKIRA & you’ll see). Such a damn shame, because like Jude Law, if Chris Rock makes a joke about him & everybody laughs because it’s true and then we don’t see Renner’s ass for two or three years, it’s gonna suck. Dude is good & deserves better. That being said, it was HIS choice, so I’m lookin’ at him side eyed too. Whatever…over Bourne anyway Terrible, HORRIBLE choice!
