, perhaps none has such intimate tension as the relationship between Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow, the Avengers team’s least supernatural members.
From what we’ve seen, Renner’s character will side with Chris Evans‘ Captain America while Black Widow will back-up Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man, and the rift in their partnership is one element of the upcoming film that has yet to be ruined by the marketing for the third ) out in front, but at Silicon Valley Comic Con, Renner suggested that his character could be even more defined.
I regret it and sincerely apologize.” “I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone,” Renner also said in a statement provided to EW. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.” Yet, some fans are questioning why this is even a controversy, noting, as Renner did, that Black Widow is a fictional character and the duo wasn’t talking about Johansson.
More than that, she never expected that the boy's uncle would be Chris Evans and they would hit it off so well.

The interviewer plays along, noting that Black Widow may be content to "be the sidekick" and "flirt away" with everybody in future movies."She has a prosthetic leg anyway," Renner notes.The exchange has drawn ire from fans who found the remarks sexist, while others have defended them as a joke. Theirs is an unexpected but thoroughly enjoyable relationship.
