Not unveiling too much during the interview for his current film project Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, he tells fans that this time around his role as Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War is an even more physically demanding one:
[Captain America: Civil War is] more active. A lot of fun stuff happening in that one. I can’t speak too much for it. They’re still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there’s a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don’t know what’s going to happen.
And Renner had this to say about Marvel Cinematic Universe and its choosing of actors:
It’s always great to know that you are going have a job next year or something. That’s a fantastic blessing for any actor. It’s nice to be able to continue things and characters that you’ve kind of grown with. But it’s always great to have new faces come in. They’re not big on replacing people and characters so much, which I think is smart, because there’s so many different characters. I think there’s going to be a lot of new faces coming up in that world. I’m happy just to be a part of that big universe.
