Jeremy Renner & Scarlett Johansson Talk AVENGERS, Meeting Fans, and Tell a Great Story About Watching THOR While Filming

     May 3, 2012


With The Avengers opening tomorrow in North America, Marvel/Disney recently held a massive press junket in Los Angeles and I was able to interview most of the cast, director Joss Whedon, and Kevin Feige (Marvel Studios President).   Every day this week I’ve been posting a new video interview from the junket.  The past few days have featured Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Chris Hemsworth with Chris Evans (Thor/Captain America) Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and today I’ve got Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye)

During the interview they talked about their reactions to reading The Avengers script for the first time, what it’s like when little kids see them, and they tell a great story about watching Thor while filming.  Johansson also talks about the differences between filming Iron Man 2 and Avengers.  Hit the jump to watch.

Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner

  • Their reaction to reading the script for the first time. They tell a great story about watching Thor while they were filming Avengers and having the script make a lot more sense.
  • Johansson also talks about the differences between filming Iron Man 2 and Avengers
  • Do they have any stories of meeting little kids and having them freak out.  Johansson tells a fun story and Renner talks about men reacting to meeting Hawkeye

    i wonder if Hawkeye smashed that..

      …and if he made her wear the costume.
      I think she’s about a 7 until she puts on her kit and that hair.

    My soon-to-be 7 kid wants a Hawkeye themed birthday party and archery lessons… All the bakers in my town are like “WHO??!!” when I try to order the cake. So I’d say he made a pretty good impression. Great job! Seen the movie 4 times with my son.

    People will be remembering Hawkeye once Avengers hits in 40 minutes.

    • Rayman

      Wow hawkeye was amazing as well as the others. This movie freaking blew me away. I will be returning to see this for a second time

  • Bijou Stevens

    she is so much hotter in person. seriously, with the combination of the phony red hair and her odd pout-headtilt, Black Widow loses most of her hotness trying to hard to be “hot.” She should have just been herself in the role, rather than posturing.

    LOL re: “I’ve seen some grown-a$$ men dressed as Hawkeye…”

    What was the story about watching Thor?

    Favorite part of this interview: Renner says, “I haven’t really run into any kids. None of them have really seen Hawkeye yet. […] I have seen some grown-ass men dressed up as Hawkeye, though.”

    la verdad amo a hawkeye !!me encanto la pelicula la vi por segunda vez y ahora voy por la tercera la ame me encanto!!!

  • Andre

    How is it that Jeremy watched Thor for the first time on set for Avengers WHEN HE WAS IN IT?! WHAT?!

    • Shannon

      Not all actors watch their movies (or at least not every single one of them). Johnny Depp, for instance, says he never watches the films he’s in. He says he doesn’t like watching himself on the big screen. :) Hope it makes more sense to you, now. ;)

      • Bill Graham

        I don’t think that’s the reason. He is, like he says, in it for all of three seconds. I doubt that little screentime would cause him to skip seeing a film he had a cameo in.

        More than likely he just never got around to it. They likely did a crash course on CAPTAIN AMERICA as well. Renner has been extremely busy the past year. He has M:I GP, this, and all the training and other projects he is working on. Plus, it’s not like he needed to watch it to portray his role here, really.
