Captain America The True Leader In Age of Ultron? Hawkeye Solo Movie Unlikely For Right Now?

March 4th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



We are now less than two months away from the HIGHLY anticipated return of the Avengers to theaters with Age of Ultron. As such, more and more news and details is being dropped about the movie.

First up, Chris Evan notes how this time around, Captain America is more-or-less the true leader of the Avengers. And true to form, it’s a very Cap reason for being that way.

“I think [Captain America] feels very comfortable in a sort of leadership role, but I don’t think he gives orders,” Evans told Yahoo. “He does structure, organization — he’s a military guy.

Furthermore, Evans notes that this won’t be about standalone moments (which you could argue happened more most of the original film), but about the Avengers being the Avengers:

“I like all the scenes that we get to have together,” Evans said. “In this movie, it’s not about having stand-out moments, it’s about trying to have stand-together moments. You want to have scenes where you’re like ‘Man, the Avengers just kicked ass!’”

And what about Hawkeye? It’s already been confirmed (by numerous parties, including Renner himself) that Hawkeye has more to do this time around. But is there a solo movie on the horizon?

“Those things are in the future,” Renner told Yahoo. “This movie has still got to do well for there to be an Avengers 3. No one is counting that egg. We just make the best movie we can now, and if Avengers 3 rolls around, and people want to see that, then that happens. If there’s anything else that happens, that’s not really for any one person to determine.”

So yeah, there you go. Age of Ultron is truly shaping up to be a definitive Avengers adventure! We’ll see how it all turns out on May 1st!
