A recent clip from Marvel’s upcoming film Thor gives viewers a brief glimpse of Hawkeye, a character that joined superhero group the Avengers way back in 1965 (that’s a long time ago, folks).  I’m starting to get the impression that little cameos in comic book films are the new trend in comic book movies.  Nick Fury anyone?

Marvel Comics is planning on dropping its Avengers film in 2012 and Hawkeye will be a character in that film, played by Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Town).  I can’t really tell from the clip if Renner is the actor seen in the brief image, but it’s possible.  Thor is due to drop in May.  (via IGN)
