Disney on Replacing Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
Disney has not yet responded to the allegations. After Jeremy Renner was accused of wanting to harm his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco in a court lawsuit, Disney apparently considered replacing him as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio is believed to have “evaluated options” in the event the choice was made to recast the character of the arrow-wielding assassin, according to various Hollywood sources, notably writer Daniel RPK. The accusations have yet to be responded to by Disney, but they come just weeks following Sonni Pacheco, who got married Renner in January 2014 and moved for divorce the same year, alleged him of psychiatric abuse and drug misuse.
A spokesperson for Renner has dismissed the charges as “one-sided.” Renner allegedly threatened to harm Ms. Pacheco, who is claiming full custody of the couple’s kid. He allegedly put a gun in his mouth prior to shooting it into the roof on one occasion, according to Pacheco. Renner called Pacheco an uncertain liar in following footage obtained by TMZ and lodged by the actor’s representatives. Pacheco cited irreconcilable disagreements as to the cause for their divorce when they divorced in December 2014. Despite the allegations, it’s thought that Disney executives have rejected the notion and will enable Renner to feature in future Marvel films. He’ll also appear in his upcoming Disney+ TV show, which will revolve around his role, and Kate Bishop played by Hailee Steinfeld, a young girl he’s training to be the next Hawkeye.
Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco’s relationship
The couple married in 2014, and it took only ten months for them to file for divorce. They have a kid together, who is eight years old. Jeremy Renner is accused of physically abusing Sonni Pacheco. She claimed that Jeremy Renner intended to kill her and afterward commit suicide, claiming that their daughter would have a better life without her parents than with Sonni. After their divorce, they agreed to share the parenting of their daughter, but Sonni then filed a new suit to keep her child solely in her care, citing Renner’s long history of alcoholism and drug misuse.
The reaction of the fans over social media
Following the revelation of Jeremy Renner’s ex-charges wife’s against him, many individuals did what is currently trending on social media. #RIPJeremyRenner was going viral for a short time. No, people did not believe the actor had died, but it did signal the end of his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Universe. A few even wanted him to be removed from the franchise entirely. But it isn’t that simple.
The case is still being investigated, and that with Marvel Studios’ new Disney+ show Hawkeye, featuring Jeremy Renner as that of the title character, on the horizon, Disney has told that Jeremy Renner will not be canceled. We can observe that Jeremy Renner’s role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not being aggressively terminated. However, if he does not feature in any subsequent Marvel ventures, we must conclude that he was fired nonetheless.
