Jeremy Renner is done filming Hawkeye’s part in Avengers 4. Marvel Studios embarked on their biggest production ever at the beginning of last year. The Russo Brothers kicked off 2017 by filming the next two Avengers movies. Originally set to be Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2, the movies have since been separated a bit. Marvel changed the shooting schedule to film them back-to-back instead of concurrently, which allowed for Avengers: Infinity War to wrap in the summer.
The Russos and their cast and crew did not stop however, as production started almost immediately on Untitled Avengers. The followup has been shrouded in mystery throughout its filming period and for good reason. Audiences still have to wait till May to see how Avengers 3 plays out, and the first Infinity War trailer generated plenty of interest. That should carry over for the sequel, which is winding down production. We can now add Renner to the growing list of actors to wrap on the fourth Avengers.

Renner confirmed today on Instagram that he is done filming Avengers 4. This marks the end of nearly a year long shoot for Renner and many of his fellow stars, although his role has been especially top secret. He does note that he’ll be back – for what we assume are reshoots on Infinity War – and referenced the two films as Infinity Wars.
Hawkeye has yet to be shown in the marketing for Infinity War after being left out of the trailer. There’s no word on what his role in Infinity War will be even though he is confirmed to be in it. Part of that may be to protect that movie, but also Avengers 4. Rumors continue to swirl that Renner’s Clint Barton could take on a new superhero persona in the next Avengers movie. If that is the case – and we have our theories on why it will happen – it may prove to be a wise decision to not reveal what Hawkeye is up to.
As for him calling the movies Infinity Wars, that should just go to show how secretive the fourth Avengers movie is. It is possible Renner and other cast members know what the new title is going to be, but Marvel may also be keeping that a secret from them too. By doing so, they can preserve the title and not have to worry about it accidentally leaking.
Renner joins his fellow co-stars Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Bettany as cast members who have wrapped already. There are surely other smaller roles who have finished too, but these are the ones who have confirmed it. With production possibly ending in the coming days, the entire movie may wrap soon. Once that happens, it won’t be long before reshoots on Infinity War begin as Marvel Studios looks to perfect the blockbuster before its May release. After that, it may not be until the Avengers 4 reshoots that Renner and others suit up again – and possibly for the last time.
