Today we get reports from Heat Vision and Deadline that two actors have joined the Marvel Universe, or at least potentially joined. Those two actors are Jeremy Renner and Neal McDonough and they may be coming to a theatre near you very soon.
Heat Vision tells us that Jeremy Renner, the star from the critically acclaimed Hurt Locker is going to play Hawkeye in the upcoming Avengers flick. This has been rumored for some time now and was all but confirmed. Sources say he is now in final negotiations so it’s essentially a go.
Deadline brings us some more news, they tell us Neal McDonough is going to play Dum Dum Dugan in the upcoming Captain America flick. Dugan is one of Captain America’s sidekicks as well as a member of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Joe Johnston‘s Captain America hits theaters July 22nd, 2011.
Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers hits theaters May 4th, 2012.
