Jeremy Renner Told Marvel to Recast Him as Hawkeye in 2013 - Find Out Why

Jeremy Renner makes his way through JFK Airport on Sunday (November 21) in New York City.

The 50-year-old actor kept it casual for his arrival, pairing a plaid flannel with black pants and a jacket. He made sure to mask up as he made his way home.

In a recent interview with Men’s Health for their December issue, Jeremy revealed that he once gave Marvel an ultimatum after his eight-year-old daughter Ava was born in 2013.

He recalled commuting from London to Los Angeles for weekend visits after she was born, meaning he sometimes only got to see her for a few hours.

“It taught me how to have the nuts to say, ‘Everyone, f— off. It’s my time with my daughter,’” Jeremy told the outlet. “I said, ‘Fine, recast me. I’m going to be here with my daughter.’ It was pretty gnarly.”

He now requires weekend visits be worked into his schedule for every project he takes on.

“Acting and everything else goes out the window until my daughter says, ‘I want to hang out with my friends, and I don’t want to be around you so much, Daddy,’” he said.

Jeremy shares joint custody of Ava with his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco.

The actor is set to star in the upcoming Disney+ limited series Hawkeye, which will be his first solo project in the MCU.

The show will premiere Nov. 24 on Disney+ and the cast was recently spotted at the series premiere in LA. See the pics here!
