It was something that many people thought while watching the second Captain America movie, as Hydra took down S.H.I.E.L.D. from the inside, where was Hawkeye when his organization needed him? While the actor couldn't make the film due to scheduling conflicts, he still seems unsure if he will make an appearance in the third movie.
Speaking with The Daily Beast on Monday, The Avengers star Jeremy Renner talked about whether or not he had been contacted to be in the next Captain America movie, but like the last few interviews, he still was not sure whether he would be invited or not.
"I don't know what's going to happen. I know it's going to start shooting in March. I haven't had any official conversations about doing it or not," Renner said.
It seems like the actor hasn't talked with Marvel yet about doing a role, and it could be something that will get confirmed later on once the film gets closer.
With Captain America 3 set to begin filming in April, it would probably be easy to slide Renner in for a few scenes since the actor has been hard at work on some action sequels lately. He just spent the summer as Hawkeye in Avengers: Age of Ultron and is currently filming the next Mission: Impossible movie.
While it would make sense to put Hawkeye in the film as it would allow the character to get more time to develop after not being given much for the first Avengers movie, it seems up to the higher powers right now.
Captain America 3 is set to open in theaters on May 6, 2016.
