Watch: Jeremy Renner is a Terrible Avenger on 'Saturday Night Live'
Now that The Avengers has hit theaters and made it all the way to Blu-Ray and DVD shelves, the hype around the superhero ensemble has dulled down a bit. Of course, Iron Man 3 is the first installment in Phase Two of Marvel's cinematic universe and the first trailer for the sequel certainly riled fans up a bit. Now it's time to poke fun at The Avengers thanks to "Saturday Night Live," complete with Jeremy Renner (who served as host this past weekend) reprising his role as Hawkeye. However, this version of Hawkeye seems to be a little more inept than the film's character. The sketch is amusing, but very awkward.
Here's the "Saturday Night Live" sketch making of Hawkeye in The Avengers, via Hulu:
That's Jason Sudeikis as Iron Man, Taran Killam as Captain America (he actually fits the bill pretty well), Bill Hader as Thor, Kate McKinnon as Black Widow and Bobby Moynihan as Hulk. Honestly, I wish this sketch was a little bit better and Renner was more skilled at live sketch comedy, but he's mostly a serious actor. In fact, the entire episode of from this past weekend was more than a little awkward to endure.
