Jeremy Renner Wants to Do a ‘Hawkeye’ Netflix Series

Following the premiere of the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix this past weekend, which has already been welcomed with critical acclaim, it looks like one of the MCU’s main players would be interested in having a Netflix series of his own, and if we’re being honest, we can’t really blame him either.

Yes, Hawkeye himself, Jeremy Renner, revealed at a Silicon Valley Comic Con panel (via that he would be interested in seeing a Hawkeye-led series on the streaming platform, after seeing how the Netflix and Marvel model has allowed for even greater explorations into their lead and supporting characters.

Check out his full quote below:

“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.”

Something tells me Kevin Feige is going to keep the Marvel films and Netflix shows as separate as he can for the time being, although the general consensus seems to be that we’re likely going to see at least one or two of the Defenders pop up in Avengers: Infinity War, which means there goes my dream of seeing a Black Widow TV series.

After seeing what the Netflix model has done for characters like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Punisher, Luke Cage, and more too, it’s not hard to see why that idea might be appealing for an actor like Renner, who enjoys being able to sink his teeth into his characters. Not to mention that he was arguably, the best thing about Avengers: Age of Ultron, including the brief part of backstory we got regarding his family and history in the film.

So yeah, I could see a Hawkeye series, and it might be nice to see him fighting characters other than just CGI aliens or robots for a change.

You can next see Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War on May 6th.
