Jeremy Renner near deal to join Marvel's 'Avengers'

Hollywood Reporter writes: "Jeremy Renner is in final negotiations to join "The Avengers," Marvel Studios' big-screen take on its superhero team that's being directed by Joss Whedon.

Renner will play the bow-and-arrow-carrying hero Hawkeye, who, while not one of the initial members of the team when it was created in the 1960s, became an integral member soon after when the misguided villain switched sides."

I don't really care for this idea. I like their original plan to use the characters that are getting separate movies and then combining them. Throwing in extra superheroes is pointless.

The whole idea of having the individual movies is so that every character's backstory can be told. This way when it comes to the 'Avengers' movie they don't have to spend time on anyone's backstory. They can just roll into the story and how they work together. When you throw in new people you have to explain them, which takes up precious time. You have to explain where they came from and what they can do.

With the other four they don't have to do this. I hope they end up dropping this idea.
