Is Marvel Replacing Jeremy Renner As Hawkeye Amid Ex-Wife Sonni Pacheco Controversy?
Some Marvel fans are demanding that Jeremy Renner be replaced as Hawkeye amid his personal drama with ex-wife Sonni Pacheco.
The actor has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife over their daughter, Ava. Renner and Pacheco have both hurled some damaging allegations at each other. It has become a war of words that gets nastier each day.
There is no question there is a great deal of controversy surrounding the Avengers: Endgame star. The serious accusations of drug abuse, gun use endangering Ava, as well as alleged threat to kill Pacheco sparked rumors Marvel and Disney were going to part ways with Renner.
Screen Rant is reporting several sources claim Marvel is looking to either reduce or cut out Renner's role as Hawkeye in the upcoming Hawkeye TV series. There is no official word from Marvel or parent company Disney on the subject.
A lack of official word has done nothing to stop Marvel fans from voicing their opinion. Many fans are outraged over the allegations against Renner and want him out of the MCU family.
"Y'all swapped Terrence Howard for Don Cheadle on some "They all look alike" business, so I see no issue with chucking Renner the deuce, hiring Charlie Hunnam, and saying not a damn thing about it," Tweeted @cheryllynneaton
"Now would be the perfect time to make Hawkeye #Deaf in the MCU like he is in comics. Get a Deaf actor like @NyleDiMarco to play Hawkeye and let him work with Hawkeye Kate Bishop. It would be AMAZING!" wrote @GayDeafComicGuy
Not all fans are jumping on the replace Jeremy Renner bandwagon simply because of a personal battle with his ex-wife.
"do not replace Renner I repeat don't replace him. His fans stand behind him and it isn't fair when he has not done anything wrong and I wouldn't watch anymore marvel if you replace him," Tweeted @dot57981200
"That's his personal life and should not affect his job I personally like Renner as Hawkeye and himself in other movies. Marvel is too quick to judge just like what they did to James Gunn people can change you know," said @Jriggity247
Jeremy Renner has denied all allegations made against him by his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco. They are expected to be in court on November 7th to decide the custody of Ava.
Do you think Renner should be fired as Hawkeye because of the scandal in his personal life?
