Jeremy Renner to Join All-Star Avengers Cast

Jeremy Renner has been in the movie business for years, but after starring in the Hurt Locker, he’s become a hot commodity.

Rumor has it that Renner is in final negotiations to join, "The Avengers."

Renner will play the bow-and-arrow-carrying superhero Hawkeye, who became an integral member after the misguided villain switched sides.

Robert Downey Signs On For Avengers Movie

The Avengers already has an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Don Cheadle as War Machine.

As we reported earlier this week, Jeremy has also signed on for Paul Thomas Anderson's untitled drama starring opposite Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Reese Witherspoon is also in talks to sign on to the Scientology flick.

The comic book movie is due for release in 2012.
