The cast of Avengers: Endgame unites to talk to reporters about their characters, and being a bit sad as it’s all wrapping up. During a recent interview promoting the upcoming Marvel Studios epic Avengers: Endgame, Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner rebuked Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson.
In an interview with NDTV, Renner and Larson were asked about the pressure on being a celebrity in the Marvel Studios films. Larson answers first saying, “I am committed to self-improvement and I work at being the best person I can be and using this platform for as much good as I can.
It doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes, but I’m very comfortable with that and allowing myself to learn from those mistakes.”
Jeremy Renner isn’t the only Avengers: Endgame cast member who Brie Larson appears to have rubbed wrong. Larson and Thor actor Chris Hemsworth also got into a contentious debate during an Avengers: Endgame interview. Larson stated, “I feel like we are fighting right now. I think it’s been an all day thing.”
Hawkeye’s Jeremy Renner would then rebuked Larson’s idea of using her platform as a celebrity. “I’m pretty accountable and responsible in my own life at any rate.
Celebrity isn’t something that I use as any sort of platform to be more responsible or accountable, I suppose. It’s certainly an absolute blessing to see the joy on kids’ faces. I don’t think there is a feeling that comes close to that,” he said.
Larson abundantly cleared about her plans to fame as the actress behind Captain Marvel. In an interview with Marvel’s executive, Sana Amanat Larson would confirm taking on Captain Marvel was her “form of activism.”
Larson stated, “The movie was the biggest and best opportunity I could have ever asked for.
It was, like, my superpower. This could be my form of activism: doing a film that can play all over the world and be in more places than I can be physical. Carol taught me so much. I trained for nine months before I started filming the movie.
It changed my brain and changed the way I carried myself, and it strengthened my voice. It was a great honor to be able to share that character with the world with the hope that others could get some of that through the screen.”
”Looking at the [Endgame] poster… I see our very strong female characters standing next to the men, and I’m so proud that they’re up there represented in that way,” said Larson.
Larson also revealed that Marvel Studios approached her to make Captain Marvel into a “big feminist movie.” Larson told Entertainment Tonight, “I had a meeting with Marvel and what we discussed is they wanted to make a big feminist movie.”
One of the more discussed moments in the Avengers: Endgame trailer was the appearance of Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye. He had been completely absent from Avengers: Infinity War — training a young woman in archery. The Russo brothers told Renner that his character would be sidelined, “I was like, ‘Great, I don’t have to do press,’” he said with a laugh.
