Maybe greatest identified for enjoying eagle-eyed Avenger Clint Barton (a.ok.a Hawkeye), Jeremy Renner has turn into one of many greatest, most prolific stars in Hollywood. He is additionally well-known for his roles in 2016’s masterful Arrival and in The Bourne Legacy, however these are just some of his credit. He appears fairly open to most roles, making certain that he is all the time received work. And the films he is in are largely fairly good. It might come as a shock, then, that Jeremy Renner turned down an opportunity to play a task in Hellboy.
No, not the ill-fated Hellboy movie launched earlier this 12 months with David Harbour. He handed on the 2004 Hellboy directed by Guillermo del Toro, with the title position finally going to Ron Perlman.
UPDATE: Apparently there was a misunderstanding after Jeremy Renner’s podcast feedback. Guillermo del Toro corrected the confusion on Twitter to say Jeremy Renner was by no means up for the title position of Hellboy. He was up for Agent Myers, which went to Rupert Evans.
Jeremy Renner’s current feedback on Justin Lengthy’s podcast (by way of EW) make his lack of curiosity within the movie abundantly clear.
Jeremy Renner added there was “a lot of money” within the potential deal, however he clearly felt no draw to the character or story. He did not mince phrases when requested if he had any regrets.
You need not beat across the bush there, Jeremy Renner. Critics and followers gave the 2004 Hellboy two thumbs up, however that does not imply Renner needed to prefer it. And he is allowed to say so with out feeling in the slightest degree dangerous about it. In any case, earlier than that contract is signed and your soul is offered, you have received the leverage. However it appears like he simply acknowledged he would not have something to supply the position. Issues turned out how they had been alleged to, at the very least for Ron Perlman’s two Hellboy motion pictures.
Created by Mike Mignola, Hellboy grew to become of 1 Darkish Horse Comics’s hottest, most marketable characters, spawning two implausible motion pictures (the sequel being even higher than the primary) from Guillermo del Toro and changing into a sensation within the comics world. It appears like Jeremy Renner’s dislike towards the character had nothing to do with who was directing, writing, or making it. He simply did not join with the position.
