Jeremy Renner Talks 'Hawkeye' Backstory Reveal In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Amid all the chaos and superhero action in Avengers: Age of Ultron, it's revealed that Clint Barton aka Hawkeye not only has a secret home in the country, but also a family consisted of a pregnant wife (played by Linda Cardellini), a son, and a daughter. During an interview with Zap2it, Jeremy Renner finally discussed the reveal and ultimately getting to explore a different side of the archer.

"We did speak together about some of his stories and secrets, and they just couldn't be implemented into the first one," Renner said of working with writer/director Joss Whedon on Clint's backstory. "It just didn't have room for it. Even the backstory stuff and secrets revealed in this one weren't quite the ones we talked about." About those initial secrets, Renner teases, "I still can't talk those because they can still happen, and they're just as cool -- even more so now."

"It felt like Hawkeye was almost introduced as a new character, because he's never really been explored prior with any sort of depth at all," Jeremy Renner continued. "I love the fallibility of a superhero who's really just a guy with a really high skill set, and Joss was able to come up with a really cool idea. [Hawkeye] can kind of be a really fantastic grounding rod for the group. These are all things we talked about as far as the reason why he's needed on the team, ultimately."

On Barton's happy home sort of providing a tonal balance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jeremy Renner explained, "I think we'd all get pretty bored if it was just a bunch of killing of robots and slinging of arrows and slinging of hammers. It comes back to Clint's story: Don't we all just want to go home and have a life and be happy? Captain America battles with that. If you don't know the plight of these flawed heroes, then what's the point of it all? I think the intimate moments and the character development is crucial to especially movies like this. What comes up next, it's '[Captain America: Civil War].' It's going to be arguing and trying to destroy each other. [ laughs]"

When asked if we'll see Clint Barton's family again, Renner would only say, "That's hard to say; it's beyond my pay grade, ultimately. I think just knowing that it's there is one thing, but we'll see,. I have no idea what they want to do." We may find out in Captain America: Civil War May 6, 2016.
