Jeremy Renner reveals Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.

Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?

“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”

This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would likely »

'Avengers 2': Jeremy Renner Responds to Hawkeye Rumors

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner revealed a potential spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron in a new interview with Larry King.

Larry King bluntly asked Jeremy Renner if his character Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, dies in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here's what the actor had to say below.

"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."

There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.

This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »

Jessica Chastain criticises Marvel: 'Where is the Scarlett Johansson movie?'

27 August 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jessica Chastain has called for a female superhero movie to be released.

Chastain criticised Marvel and Hollywood in general for not giving Scarlett Johansson's popular Avengers character Black Widow her own solo movie.

Scarlett Johansson's 5 best roles: Under the Skin, The Avengers

X-Men's David Hayter wants to revive Black Widow film

"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?" she declared to The Wrap. "This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies."

Chastain continued: "Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?

"To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, »

New Avengers 2 Hulkbuster Spoiler Teasers Revealed By The Director & Producer

26 August 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" movie director, Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige, delivered a couple of new spoiler teasers for the film at the recent Comic-Con 2014 event in San Diego,CA. In this particular segment, they talked about the Hulkbuster suit. Apparently, it's a backup suit in case things go awry, and more. Kevin told them that the Hulkbuster suit is a "bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Then Joss chimed in to say: "The Hulkbuster is from after my time as a reader, but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me."

Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day Are Taking a Little ‘Vacation’ Together

26 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Sometimes it’s scary how much people wind up being just like their parents. They try to fight it, but there they are, 30-something years later, dragging their own kids in the trusty family car down the same winding roads that they once had to travel on some wacky adventure. You’d think Rusty Griswold would have learned some lessons back in the ’80s after just a few failed family bonding attempts, but the long-gestating reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation is still underway, with a couple new faces now added to the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter: Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day. In the new incarnation of Vacation, written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, Rusty (Ed Helms) is all grown up and taking his own family (including wife Christina Applegate) on a whirlwind road trip that way or may not have an end goal of visiting Walley World.

Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day in Talks to Star in Vacation Reboot

26 August 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A reboot/remake of the classic 1980s comedy series starring Chevy Chase is on the way, and it has been revealed that New Line are now in talks with Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Charlie Day (Pacific Rim) for roles in the project (which will seemingly serve as a very loose sequel as well).

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein wrote the script and will also make their directorial debut.

Ed Helms (The Hangover) is set to play Rusty Griswold, the son of the original series’ lead Clark Griswold (played by Chase). Vacation will see Rusty take his family on a road trip just the like one he took with his sister and parents as a younger. Christina Applegate (Anchorman) is attached to play his wife.

Both Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will cameo in the Vacation reboot, giving it a tie to the original. Hemworth – who it »

Chris Hemsworth And Charlie Day Will Take A Vacation For New Line

26 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day have signed on to star in New Line’s “reboot-slash-remake” of Vacation, the 1980s comedy series led by Chevy Chase. With a script by Day’s Horrible Bosses scribes, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (who will also be making their directorial debut with the film), things certainly seem promising for the project.

Already set to star is Ed Helms, who will be taking on the role of Rusty Griswold (Clark Griswold’s son). Though plot details are scarce, from what we know, apparently Rusty will be looking to take his family (which includes Christina Applegate as his wife) on a road trip. As for Hemsworth and Day, the Thor actor will be playing Rusty’s brother-in-law, Stone Crandall, while the latter will be making a small cameo as a “river-rafting guide.”

Shooting on Vacation is set to get underway in September, »

We also know that the production has been delayed.

But now, in anticipation of a hopeful September start time for filming, we've got some new casting news courtesy of THR. The outlet is reporting that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Bosses star Charlie Day have signed on for roles in the movie.

Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day to Join Vacation Sequel

26 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) are in negotiations to join New Line Cinema's Vacation reboot/sequel. If cast, they will join Ed Helms and Christina Applegate on the project.

Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct the movie from a script that they wrote. The new Vacation film will follow the adventures of Clark Griswold's grown-up son Rusty (Helms). He takes his own family on a road trip that will be full of all kinds of crazy antics. 

According to Variety, Hemsworth will play Audrey’s husband, and Day will play a river raft touring guide. It will be really interesting seeing Hemsworth take on a comedy like this. Thor can be a bit comedic, but it's pretty dry. This will be a very different kind of film for him, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they utilize him. »
