Jeremy Renner on Chris Evans and Avengers: Age of Ultron. A bigger role for Hawkeye this time round? Yes please.

Variety-don't screw up the story on the first line. Great that he's happier....I don't know what he meant about 'pressure.'
WOW! Now there's the Hawkeye humor I was looking for from Renner! I've never seen him be so...jovial in an interview. I like the guy a lot and have enjoyed every role I've seen him in but, while I like him as Hawkeye and look forward to him featuring more in the sequel, it always felt like he would never be able to tell the kind of jokes I want to come from Clint. This proves to me that he has it in him already, Joss just needs to give him the right lines. And considering how everyone keeps talking about how big his role will be this time around, especially Joss himself saying that, I feel like there's almost no doubt that we'll be getting some classic one-liners from Clint Barton/Hawkeye!!
*twirls* All for the extra Hawkeye in my life. Hope we see Renner's wit used for Barton's quips.
He was underused in the last movie. It served the plot well, but I understand that it frustrated him. Also, Hawkeye is a really good character for the team, he is so much and everyman compared to rest of the group. I mean, we could probably be pretty good with arrows too, right?
Classic Hawkeye was one of my favorite Avengers. I really didn't like what they did with him in the Ultimates. (Even though Ultimate Cap is what got me to love normal Cap.)

Part of what was cool about him was he had the guts to tell Tony and Steve when they were being stupid in a sort of snarky fashion. So yeah, Clint's treat. Too bad Mockingbird's not in this, I love Bobbi.

However, I got Joss Whedon written Scarlet Witch, you have no idea how happy this makes me.
I love me some Renner. Looking forward to this so much!
If Renner ever gets a stand alone Hawkeye movie, I hope it's got the feel of My Life as a Weapon. Renner could really play that type of role well.
My Life as a Weapon is one of the only comic books I've read, but it's excellent and I agree that a Hawkeye movie with that type of tone would be pretty boss. I thought about this fairly recently, and I think that if Shane Black were to do another Marvel movie, I'd either want another Iron Man, or a Hawkeye solo film.

Well I think to Marvel Movie viewers a lot of that has yet to be proven. I know my fiancee stares at me blankly when I talk about Hawkeye and she's part of a group of fans I've seen that have sort of taken that everyperson feel and think Black Widow first. I remember one chat board I saw where someone suggested (and it was seconded by many) that there should be a BW film in which Barton is essentially damseled. I asked how that wasn't The Avengers, but I digress.

I really hope Hawkeye is done well this time around. Whedon really has an uphill battle explaining to non-comic readers what exactly Clint Barton does and why he even deserves to be in the same conversation as the rest of the Avengers. I felt really good about that prospect until I heard SW and Quicksilver were in this. Even if he has more to do in this, I guess I really just need to see how Joss is going to pay it off because screen time could be a major hurdle.
