Discovered: Details of Hawkeye's (rather extended) cameo in Thor

While we'd already heard that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) was going to make a cameo appearance in Marvel's upcoming superhero movie Thor, we didn't know how big of a cameo it was going to be ... until now. And we've got a few details on what we'll see.

The lucky Katey Rich from Cinemablend got to see some footage from director Kenneth Branagh's Thor during Cinema Con—and while you might think Marvel and Paramount would NOT show the cameo appearance in order to get us into theaters to see it— they did!

Here's what she reports:

Jeremy Renner is playing Hawkeye in Avengers but now we know that the first place you'll see the character is in Thor this summer. The scene we saw featured Renner as Hawkeye, working with the infamous Agent Coulson, played as he was in the Iron Man movies, by Clark Gregg. The scene features Hawkeye using his famous bow and arrow and he has multiple lines, so while we're talking about something a little more than a momentary cameo, there's no way to know if his involvement will go any further than that one scene.

For now at least we know he's in the movie. Expect Hawkeye to show up in Thor when you buy your ticket on May 5th.

May 5 just can't come soon enough.
