While it’s not official until Marvel Studios says so, The Hollywood Reporter has it on good word that Jeremy Renner will be joining Captain America: Civil War in a supporting role when it lands next year. In talking about Renner joining Story of Your Life with Amy Adams and director Denis Villeneuve (who recently signed on to direct the Blade Runner sequel), the report talked about Renner’s participation in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mission: Impossible 5 before mentioning that he’ll be working in Captain America: Civil War.
Casting for that film has certainly grown and there look to be some solid supporting roles that will help expand things. A lot of eyes are still on the whole Spider-Man angle though to see who gets brought in for that.
Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Frank Grillo, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie & Daniel Brühl, with appearances by Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson expected. The film opens May 6, 2016
@Renner4Real GAME ON!
