It’s been a decade since Jeremy Renner first played Hawkeye, and the actor expresses gratitude for the opportunities he’s had while portraying the character in multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

Renner first appeared as Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, an expert marksman, and archer, in 2011’s Thor, before becoming one of the MCU’s major figures in The Avengers (2012). Since then, the 50-year-old actor has played the character in several films, including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Hawkeye, and Avengers: Endgame.

Many fans expected Jeremy Renner to reprise his role as Hawkeye in the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, but according to MCU Source, he will not.

Is Kate Bishop the New Hawkeye?

Jeremy Renner has spoken out about his future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealing that he has no idea what will happen next.

Hawkeye series on Disney+ Hotstar focuses on Clint Barton after his blip in New York City during the holidays, when he is forced to work with the young archer Kate Bishop to stop enemies from his past as Ronin. Hawkeye was already well-received by critics, with many praising the chemistry between Renner and Steinfeld as well as the story’s more grounded, street-level feel.

Kate Bishop was introduced in Young Avengers #1 in 2005 as the youngest daughter of a wealthy Manhattan family with an older sister named Susan.

It’s unclear what Kate’s role in the MCU will be after her Hawkeye debut, but given Hailee Steinfeld’s rising star power and the character’s growing popularity with fans, it’s almost certain that she’ll play a significant role wherever she appears next.

Following Kate’s debut in Hawkeye, the most obvious next step would be to cast her in a Young Avengers film or streaming series. She is, after all, not the only young superhero in Marvel Phase 4.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars – Which Superheroes Will Be There

With Avengers: Secret Wars still a long way off, there’s no word on who will be in the cast. However, the Secret Wars comics, on which the film appears to be heavily based, featured Thor, Miles Morales and Peter Parker, Wolverine, Captain America, She-Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and a slew of other characters. In the Secret Wars storyline, major villains included The Beyonder, The Lizard, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Molecule Man, and Kang the Conqueror.

Given that Jonathan Majors’ Kang will be the main villain in Kang Dynasty, we should expect him to appear in the immediate sequel. Doctor Doom, The Beyonder, and Molecule Man are the main three villains who seek destruction – but the plot could change to feature Kang as the ultimate supervillain who condemns the heroes to an eternal battle.

It’s also possible that, because all realities are now possible within the Multiverse, we’ll see the return of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America, though either actor’s return seems unlikely. We can probably expect Superheroes with solo projects in Phases 4 through 6 – such as Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, Thor, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and the Fantastic Four – to appear to try to save Earth.
