ANT-MAN & THE WASP (2018): Hawkeye Not Appearing in Sequel

Hawkeye Won’t Appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp

Rumors have been going around that Jeremy Renner left Mission: Impossible 6 because of commitments to Ant-Man and the Wasp. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case according to director Peyton Reed. In fact, the actor isn’t actually going to appear in the upcoming film.

Rumors starting swirling in the web regarding Marvel sometime this week when it was revealed that Jeremy Renner might be reprising his role as Hawkeye in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Now it appears that the rumor is false and the actor isn’t expected to return for the role. Director Peyton Reed went on Twitter to clarify that this was fake news and that Scott Lang wouldn’t be teaming up with the Avenger in the sequel to Ant-Man.

So it looks like we will only be seeing Hawkeye in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War/Avengers 4, which will release consequently on May 2018 and May 2019. Plus, the Ant-Man sequel is also suppose to release in 2018, so it would’ve been possible to bring Hawkeye in the film as they are set in the same universe. The long shoot should keep Renner busy, but he could be taking a break sometime in the summer. Maybe that can give the actor time to return as William Brandt in the next Mission: Impossible film? It will definitely take some time for everyone to know what the next plan is.
