Jeremy Renner expressed his disappointment in how his character Hawkeye in the first "Avengers" film was played out. There even came a point that he would rather have his character killed, rather than playing it out as it was.
Reports claim that actor Jeremy Renner was not pleased of how his character as Hawkeye went around. His character practically became Loki's minion among the Avengers. During the London Film and Comic-Con, he said he was a little frustrated because he was excited to know more of his character.
According to IGN, he was in dismay in how quickly his character became what he described as a zombie and left no room for Hawkeye to evolve. Thus, this prompted him to suggest that his character just be killed off while they were filming. "I'm giving you an option, if you just want to kick me out of this movie. Just you know, at any given moment, if you wanna kill me off, daddy's gonna be having a heart attack," Renner said during the Comic-Con Question and Answer portion.
Renner said that during the first "Avengers" film, he was still at the stage of getting to know his character as Hawkeye and then he suddenly became a zombie. However, Collider reported that now Renner no longer wants his character to die. Since he had more chances to portray the role of Hawkeye in the succeeding Marvel films, he got to explore his character more now.
In the recent Marvel movie, "Captain America: Civil War" was when Renner last made his appearance as Hawkeye. There were even reports claiming that Hawkeye's development on the film was more entertaining than that of the movie as a whole.
Renner is set to appear again as Hawkeye in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" and another Avengers movie that has not yet been titled to date. The upcoming Avengers film is set to start filming later this year.
