Jeremy-Renner Guillermo-del-Toro

Jeremy Renner who we all know as Hawkeye has been in the news for a lot of reasons but majorly because the actor injured himself and has been in the hospital, recovering and healing from the injury.

The actor was already a two-time Academy Award nominee before he became associated with the MCU. After his role as Hawkeye, Renner has become a household name. Even though now the actor is insanely rich and famous, he too has made some tough choices. Often actors pass on movies like Megan Fox who passed on Tomb Raider Reboot, which could have saved her career, or Will Smith who rejected The Matrix because the directors were inexperienced, now the film is world famous and became a revolution in cinematic history, something similar happened with Jeremy Renner. He missed a movie that made over $99 million.

The Marvel actor told Justin Long on his podcast Life is Short that he does not regret turning down Hellboy. Renner was approached to play a central character in the movie, which is based on a comic book of the same name. The actor does not regret saying no to the film but added that he was being paid an attractive amount for the movie. The director, Guillermo del Toro approached Renner when the MCU fame had not hit him. Renner still said no to the character, he explained the reasons behind his decision, 

I was just reading the script and [thinking] like, ‘I don’t get this…’ I just couldn’t connect to it, I said, ‘I can’t find a way in [to this character], I don’t know what I’d be doing,’ so I had to say no.”

The actor Ron Perlman went on to play Hellboy in the film. Soon after Jeremy Renner expressed his guilt, the director clarified that Renner was not offered the role of Hellboy but the role of Agent Myers who is still a central character.

“There’s zero regrets, zero. Most of the time it’s like, ‘Oh, I’m glad I didn’t do it,’ and it made sense to me. Not just Hellboy or whatever it was, and I’m not saying that it’s a good or bad movie, it’s not about that… I just wouldn’t have fit there,
