Jeremy Renner sings the story of Hawkeye on ‘The Tonight Show’
Apparently Hawkeye is the Ed Sheeran of the Avengers. Who knew?
Marvel star Jeremy Renner visited The Tonight Show in character (and in costume) as Hawkeye to sing a superhero-themed version of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” The song riffs on the fact that Hawkeye is the least famous member of the Avengers team, a normal middle-aged dude in a crowd of superpowered heroes and glamorous billionaires.
Now we know that, in addition to being a muscular guy with a bow and arrow, Hawkeye has a rich inner life. His cat has an Instagram account. He collects scarves. He likes bowling. What a guy.
Appropriately enough for a song about Hawkeye’s secret talents, Jeremy Renner surprised the audience by having a lovely singing voice. Does he have time to fit a musical in between all those action roles?
