‘Avengers’ Star Jeremy Renner Defends Hawkeye’s Superpowers Through Music on Jimmy Fallon

Anyone who’s ever watched The Avengers has asked themselves the question, “Does Hawkeye even have superpowers?”

And the answer is no, not really.

So what if he’s in incredible shape and is an exceptional athlete and marksman? It certainly can’t be easy to be the only ‘normal’ human around the likes of Thor and Captain America, especially when your dark and ambivalent past has many people still questioning your loyalties.

Well it seems that both Hawkeye and Jeremy Renner were in the need for some vindication (especially following Renner’s sexist comments last week), so leave it to Jimmy Fallon to bring in the positive press.

On last night’s (April 28) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jeremy Renner appeared behind the grand piano to deliver a touching ballad in defense of Hawkeye’s everyday super powers, all set to the tune of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” It’s a pretty hilarious parody that features Hawkeye doing super mundane things like bowling a 70, opening a pickle jar, and getting to second base with a Tinder date.

The biggest treat of all? Hawkeye’s smooth and winsome voice. Who knew Renner could sing so well?
