Rumourish Rumourbusting – Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye To Return For Avengers 2

renner hawkeyeAccording to Perez Hilton, who appears to have no real track record in this particular kind of reporting* at all, rumours of Hawkeye being recast in the next Avengers movie simply aren’t true.

You may have missed the rumours – they didn’t appear to be very substantial – but Perez is going so far as to quote ‘sources.’ Not sources he’ll name, mind, but all the same. It’s something.

Our sources tell us that the recasting rumors are completely untrue and that he will indeed return to the silver screen as Hawkeye! Phew! And, though it had been reported that some comments Jeremy made pissed off the execs over at Marvel, we’re told he’s still “very much a part of the Marvel family.”

I’m inclined to believe Perez spoke to somebody in Renner’s PR camp. This story isn’t typical for him, and I doubt he’d run it without reason.

But it’s not an official comment or a tested source, so I guess it’s still pretty rumourish as well as rumourbusting.

Still, I believe it. And I’m glad he’ll be back.

*Or, really, any kind of reporting. He gossips, and that’s fair enough.
