Actor Jeremy Renner seems to have confirmed that Hawkeye will be fighting alongside Captain America in next summer’s Civil War. Previously, a team list was supposedly leaked by Heroic Hollywood showing the full line up for both Iron man and Captain America. According to their source Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Falcon, The Winter Solider and Scarlet Witch would all be fighting with the good Captain.
While talking to a fan at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago Renner was asked “how he felt about siding with the First Avenger”. Perhaps not as on guard as usual the actor responded:
“I don’t know; they wrote me in that side. It made sense to me.”
Of course he tried to back track with “maybe I switched sides!”, but the slip had been made! The trailer from D23 showed Black Widow and Hawkeye fighting, again lending credence to the authenticity of the team leak from Heroic Hollywood which placed them on opposing sides of the superhero conflict.
Captain America: Civil War comes out May 6th, 2016. Check out our breakdown of the trailer from D23, and for more movie, TV and gaming news stick right here on TiCGN!
