New THOR Clip Reveals Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye

     April 7, 2011


A new clip from Thor has been released, and it gives us our first glimpse of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. The clip showcases a fight between Thor and a guard in the rain. We get a very brief, and a little awkward, look at Hawkeye. The shot feels very much like it was filmed later and inserted into the scene. However, we’re seeing this clip completely out of context, so it’s hard to judge. Nevertheless, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film in its entirety.

Hit the jump to watch the clip. Thor hits theaters in 3D on May 6th.

Here’s the clip (via IGN):

Here’s the official synopsis for Thor:

Release Date: May 6, 2011

Director: Kenneth Branagh

Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, Colm Feore

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

    so hawkeye looks like the cape…. great?

  • Axford

    Whole scene is kind of weird. Why would they release that?

    • baldowl

      If we’re lucky, it’s a sneak peek at a DVD extra!

    Yep, still not inclined to see the film. Guess I’ll just have to wait for Shane Black’s Iron Man…

  • dogg

    LOL, what was that they spliced in? Ceiling cat?

  • Katarzyna Nowakowski

    Heheh, good one :)
    I don’t think I will see this though as this is not my kind of movie, you know :)

  • ajnapjr

    I always watch these clips knowing that they’re not necessarily exactly how the sequence is edited together in the final film.

  • Hairyman

    Couldn’t be more disappointed. With the 30 sec commercial for a 56 second clip, that had less than a second of hawkeye. WASTE.

      You couldn’t be more disappointed by a arbitrary blurry 30 second clip? You disappoint easy.

    yeah, that sets EVERYTHING up

    you guys missed your posting date for this one of April 1st by a week

  • Stinky

    I actually liked the commercial more. Even the last hour of The Today Show thought that was a waste of time.

  • nom79

    Why would you post the title as revealing Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye when you don’t even see his face. Looks like they added a clip from The Cape in there. Not good at all.

  • Brian

    Yeah, there is no context for what comes before that. I am certain that there is a lot more to his appearance than what is hinted at in this brief clip. Still really looking forward to this.
    PS… since it’s pouring rain, maybe he’s wearing a rain coat or pancho? Doesn’t take too much thought to come to that conclusion.

  • Jason

    Replace the video with a screencap.

    I watched that earlier on IGN and, not being a comic guy, assumed that the huge black dude was Hawkeye since I didn’t see anyone else in the clip. “Kinda silly to dress a hero up as a generic thug” I thought to myself. I saw it this time though… but it seems like a weird thing to hype considering how minuscule the cameo is.

    I don’t really have an issue with the clip seeming “out of place”, I remember alot of folks freaked out over a clip from X3 with Wolverine acting all aloof during a fight only to find out said fight was just a danger room simulation… I mean the movie still sucked but the clip at least made sense when seen in context with the scenes before and after it.

  • Stinky

    You made this non-story on your header? I started cruising here more than AICN because of the lack of fluff. Don’t make me complain and bitch more like a wee lady.

  • Terry

    This movie is going to suck so much ass. It looks like something from Highlander. OMFG! Not even Natalie Potman will be able to save this crap.
    The whole Avengers thing will be garbage. What a waste of money!!!

  • 7up yours

    did i miss something i saw a shot that’s like a split seccond of someone or thing holding a bow an arrow. WTF is this sh!t this footage is ………


  • jason

    it seems as if they just edited hawkeye in there just to get fans hyped up about the film. from what i’ve seen this doesn’t look like a very good movie because of some of the comedy scenes they add in in other trailers
