With the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil currently airing – and already garnering rave reviews – and with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders and a much-anticipated second season of Jessica Jones still to come on Netflix’s schedule, it is no surprise to hear some speculate what other Marvel characters could find success on the streaming service.
One of those is none other than Hawkeye, who despite being a firm fixture in the Cinematic Universe, is seen by many as someone who is never going to be a major focus due to the larger-than-life characters he has to share the screen with.
And actor Jeremy Renner, speaking at the Silicon Valley Comic Con, agrees that a Hawkeye series on Netflix could be a good way to dig deeper into the character.
“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.”
Renner’s next Marvel outing is Captain America: Civil War, which is due to open on April 28.
