It’s no secret that when an actor signs on to star in a Marvel Studios film, his or her contract also contains options to appear in X number of films for the studio. The number varies from actor to actor (Samuel L. Jackson signed for nine movies, Chris Evans signed for six), but it helps ensure that the folks at Marvel can call on one of their many comic book characters to appear in any combination of films. Since The Avengers, the team of superheroes has become more close knit, and so it makes sense that they would begin to populate each other’s movies going forward. In the case of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel opted to have a S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy sequel with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jackson’s Nick Fury playing major roles in the second Cap film.
Production just began on Marvel’s Ant-Man, but the next Marvel film set for release after the Paul Rudd-fronted feature is Captain America 3. Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are likely fine-tuning the script for the third Cap film as we speak, and when we recently spoke with Jeremy Renner in anticipation of his upcoming film Kill the Messenger, he revealed that there are “rumblings” that Renner’s Hawkeye might have a supporting role in Cap 3. More after the jump.
During an interview with Collider correspondent Shiela Roberts, Renner got to talking about his incredibly busy schedule. In the midst of listing off his upcoming projects, Renner revealed that he may or may not have a role in the third Captain America film:
“There are rumblings of Captain America 3. I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man (laughs). I’m trying to stay home and I can’t.”
Jeremy Renner joined social media just in time for the ALS ice bucket challenge, which he says he’s ready to accept.
Added in the gallery, some new production stills from Jeremy’s new movie Kill the Messenger.
Seems pretty unreal, but apprently Jeremy really joined twitter! Be sure to follow and welcome him @Renner4Real!
Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and Jeremy Renner:
• :13 – Where does the organization of S.H.I.E.L.D. stand when Age of Ultron picks up?
• :35 – Their reactions to first reading the script and getting to have normal conversations in the movie instead of just jargon. Renner admits that the second half of the script was much more confusing.
• 1:29 – Robert Downey Jr. crashes the interview.
• 2:05 – The atmosphere on set for the sequel versus the first film. Samuel L. Jackson says Whedon probably hurt himself dancing at his birthday party.
• 3:10 – Raising the stakes in the follow-up.
