Robert Downy Jr. and Jeremy Renner have reflected on Iron Man and Hawkeye’s respective character journeys in the MCU.
Avengers: Endgame really does feel like the end of an era, especially because of certain characters leaving the scene for good like Iron Man and Black Widow. The MCU will not be the same again and this is the perfect time to reflect on what has come before.
This is just what Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner have done in a recent clip shared by the Avengers’ Instagram. Downey Jr. offered his thoughts on Tony’s journey in the MCU: “[His] journey from self-centeredness to making space for others, to making space for a relationship with Pepper, to having common tragic things happen like with he and Cap. And then healing because we have to come together to fight for the greater good, there’s something profound about it.”
Renner described Clint’s as “a superhero with zero superpower. This is a guy you don’t want to mess with because the values of him were unflappable. He’s just an every man”
It is odd to think back about how far these characters have come since they made their debuts. Hopefully, the next phase of the MCU will be as memorable as what has come before.
