Jeremy Renner Wants Marvel to Give Hawkeye a Netflix Series
Marvel's Netflix universe has been a huge success since its launch last year, but unlike with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we're yet to see how it slots in with the wider cinematic universe. While Jessica Jones and Daredevil have both made reference to the events of the Battle of New York in Avengers, we've not seen any of the MCU's big screen stars make an appearance on the streaming series. But one of the stars of the MCU believes that seeing more crossover should be a possibility in the future.

Holding a Q&A at Silicon Valley Comic Con today, Jeremy Renner said he would be open to seeing his Hawkeye character in his own Netflix series.

Opening quote
I think that's actually a really great model, and 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.
Closing quote

Hawkeye's lack of parity with his fellow Avengers has become something of a running joke among fans, and was even referenced slightly in Age of Ultron. Having a dude with a bow and arrow fighting alongside the likes of Thor and Hulk has obviously happened many a time in Marvel's comics, but a Netflix series could give us a chance to really get to know a character like Hawkeye, and it's clear that Renner recognizes that. Unfortunately, he also recognizes that the decision isn't his, but lets hope somebody at Marvel is listening.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, of course somebody asked Renner if he would like a Black Widow/Hawkeye movie, and of course Renner said he would love to see that happen. His own movie and his own Netflix series? That just seems greedy.
