Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner @ the L.A premiere of Thor: The Dark World | November 4, 2013
In the original script, there was a beautiful backstory for Hawkeye and he was on the team from the beginning. Unfortunately, there simply wasn’t enough time to put it into the story, so the brainwashing plotline was created to give Renner something interesting to play with the character. Whedon was pretty sad that they couldn’t do more. He also never got tired of watching Hawkeye shoot things while looking the other way.
Got your 6
(Because I’ve seen people wonder) Got your 6 is about helping veterans reintegrate society when they come back home. Watch the video here.
