‘Hawkeye’ actor Jeremy Renner never really knows what the Marvel Cinematic Universe films are going to look like until he sees them on the screen. The actor, who has played the part of Clint Barton/Hawkeye for just over ten years now, is an MCU veteran at this point. ‘Hawkeye’ has been featured in five different Marvel films over the years, and now the character is finally starring in his own project with the ‘Hawkeye’ series on Disney+. Renner's Hawkeye is only one of two original Avengers left on the MCU table that can lead his own series, with the other being Chris Hemsworth's ‘Thor’ (Mark Ruffalo's ‘Hulk’ cannot receive his own film or series for contractual reasons).
The ‘Hawkeye’ series on Disney+ may not be getting as much attention as this year is other titles like ‘WandaVision’ or ‘Loki’, but the series has still generally been a success. Critics have praised the show for its street-level approach to the MCU, and many believed last week's third episode to be the best of the series yet. With the show teasing a mysterious Uncle figure, many fans online have been speculating that Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin could be mere weeks away from making his MCU debut. Renner has been heavily promoting the series, doing a number of interviews and appearing on various talk shows and internet series, and he recently shed some light on what the experience is like going from the set to the screen.
In an interview with GQ breaking down his various characters from over the years, Renner was asked about the filmmaking process on Marvel Studios projects. He responded by describing how different the experience is from smaller films like Wind River. He said that he is never entirely, certain what the final product is actually going to look like and that he often is working without a complete picture of what is going on.
Renner expanded upon his comments by saying that he obviously does a lot more stunts as Hawkeye than his other characters. He said, "It's a lot of stunts also. In addition, you are wearing the most inappropriate clothes to do the stunts. -Collider
