Jeremy Renner Confirms the Russo Brothers Got Death Threats Over Avengers: Infinity War

Jeremy Renner is currently doing press rounds for his upcoming comedy Tag, but as an actor who is in Marvel movies, someone was inevitably going to ask questions about them. Renner has been doing this for a long time, so he knows how to dodge questions when it comes to movie spoilers — but he did reveal something that might be worse than a spoiler.

During their interview with Renner, USA Today mentioned that fans were very worried about Hawkeye not showing up in Avengers: Infinity War and asked what it was like to see that kind of reaction to his character.

It's a nice feeling, I suppose. I think the Russo brothers (Anthony and Joe, who directed) got way too many death threats. I'm like, "Wow, dude, that's intense. I'm sorry!"

Renner was also asked about the tattoos that all of the original Avengers got.

Some of the work can be tedious and the stunts are great, but the best part of that whole experience with the Marvel/Avengers world was the people involved in it. It's an amazing feeling to walk away from a job and have this many friendships.

Finally, while he didn't say much when it comes to Avengers 4, he did assure fans that it's going to be awesome.

Everybody's got to bite their tongue. But if you like Infinity War, there's some stuff to come. What I do know is it's going to be awesome.
