Hawkeye To Cameo In THOR?

     The Wrap is reporting on a rumor that Jeremy Renner will have a cameo appearance in THOR as the Avenger known as Hawkeye.

     According to an individual who has seen an early cut of the film, Hawkeye makes some type of appearance in the movie, although the source would not discuss the context of Hawkeye's role. The source also confirmed that Nick Fury does not appear in THOR.

     This news follows months of speculation over whether or not Hawkeye would appear in THOR. In an interview with Empire in November of 2009, Renner had fueled the rumor mill with this:

“If I was a betting man, I would bet that Hawkeye would probably show up in 'Thor,' and then be in 'The Avengers...But do I know for sure? I can’t say. But I’d love for that to happen. It’d be fun.”

     Later, Renner clarified his statement to Movieline:

"That was just one of those things that got blown way out of proportion. The only reason it came out this early, because 'Avengers' is two years away, is that they’re thinking OK, we may throw him in 'Thor,' we may not, as a cameo. You know what I mean? So there’s truth that we talked about it, but there’s no truth to me doing it."
