Jeremy Renner says ‘Avengers 2’ gives Hawkeye ‘more opportunities’ and would love to return for ‘MI 5’

Even Jeremy Renner was a bit disappointed with the lack of character development for his role as Hawkeye in the blockbuster “Avengers.” Now the “Hurt Locker” star says the sequel gives the character another chance to grow in front of the audience.

“It’s what he was able to do with the first one,” Renner told MTV News in an interview posted Monday. “Now, there’s more opportunities to explore the characters a little more, I think, for everybody. I think that’s exciting.”

Renner is promoting “Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters” now and will have to wait for a chance to talk to Joss Whedon about Clint Barton.

“I’d screw things all up,” he said, adding that his process goes a little something like this: “We meet in the middle and we play kick the can.”

Renner also starred in “Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol” and while there’s little news other than a search for a screenwriter, the “Bourne Legacy” star would love to come back and join Christopher McQuarrie.

“I haven’t talked to him in a little minute, since his movie came out, ‘Reacher,'” he said, referring to “Jack Reacher.”

“Which I still need to go see. I haven’t talked to Chris in a minute. But if he asked me to be a part of it, I’d love to do it again.”

“Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters” co-stars Gemma Arterton and arrives in theaters on January 25, 2013.
