This article will be full of Captain America: Civil War spoilers, do not proceed any further if you’ve never read the comic books associated with the storyline. This is your final warning.
In the comic books, Civil War ends when Captain America surrenders because innocent people are getting hurt. There are events that set up Civil War as well. Hulk goes into space, Thor takes a nap, Hawkeye and Vision are killed off. These events take the powerful characters that could end Civil War in one punch off the board. The death of Hawkeye and Vision take the voices of reason off the board too.
At the end of Civil War Captain America is killed by Crossbones as he escorted to the courthouse. Bucky Barnes then takes over as Captain America.
Currently in Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hulk is now missing (could be in space) and Thor is off Earth on a mission. The powerful characters have been removed from the board to set up Civil War.
Now enter in Jeremmy Renner talking to ScreenRant while promoting Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Renner was asked about the how much screen time he would get in Captain America: Civil War.
“Yeah, yeah. It’s more active. A lot of fun stuff happening in that one. I can’t speak too much for it. They’re still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there’s a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Renner.
In the video below, Renner gives a cryptic “Then who knows in the future?” Could they kill Hawkeye off in Captain America: Civil War and then resurrect him Avengers: Infinity War. We don’t know what side Hawkeye is on in Civil War but his death would make Captain America and Iron Man stop fighting.
“They’re not big on replacing people and characters so much, which I think is smart, because there’s so many different characters. I think there’s going to be a lot of new faces coming up in that world. I’m happy just to be a part of that big universe,” said Renner.

“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
