Hawkeye is just as super as the rest of Marvel's Avengers -- remember how Jeremy Rennersang a song about it and everything? The character hasn't had a solo showcase on film, but during a Q&A over the weekend, Renner showed real enthusiasm for the idea of a Netflix series.
Marvel's "Daredevil" Season 2 just premiered on Netflix, and Jessica Jones has her own series, with streaming shows coming for Marvel's Iron Fist and Luke Cage. So, while at Silicon Valley Comic Con, someone asked Jeremy Renner if he'd do a Hawkeye series for Netflix.
Here's what he answered (via Comicbook.com):
"I think that's actually a really great model, if there's ever a way to explore the character, maybe it's in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I'd be open to it. I've really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you're doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I'd be open to it. Not up to me, though."
He sounds more than open to it, he sounds like he's waiting by the phone. And why not? The Marvel Cinematic Universe is pretty booked for the time being, and it's not like there's a stigma against Netflix series. It might really be the perfect medium for a massive Hawkeye binge.
Would you watch "Marvel's Hawkeye" on Netflix? We'd suggest Black Widow for one too, but she deserves her own solo film franchise.
