My feelings for Hawkeye have only deepened: Jeremy Renner

My feelings for Hawkeye have only deepened: Jeremy Renner

It's been a decade since Jeremy Renner took on the role of Hawkeye and the actor says he is grateful for all the experiences that came his way while playing the character in multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films.

Renner played Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, an expert marksman and archer, for the first time in 2011's Thor before becoming one of the central figures of the MCU with The Avengers (2012).

Since then, the 50-year-old actor has essayed the role in "Avengers: Age of Ultron", "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Endgame", earning his own dedicated army of Marvel fans.

Now, he returns with the character for Disney+ Hotstar series "Hawkeye", which also stars Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop.

"My feelings for this character have only deepened. This series is a great way to express the character, over the six hours and I was very grateful for that. My daughter realises what the heck I do for a living, really grateful for that. This will be the first thing she's ever seen me do.
