Armageddon Expo, New Zealand’s largest pop culture convention was held in Wellington over the Easter weekend. Seeing large numbers of fans of film, television, anime, video games and comics converge on Westpac Stadium in Wellington to revel in all things nerdy and geeky. One of the big draw cards for conventions is the film and television guests, and Wellygeddon drew out the big guns securing Hawkeye himself, Jeremy Renner. So here’s the top eight things we learnt from Jeremy Renner’s question and answer panels on Saturday and Sunday.
Who would win between Hawkeye and the Green Arrow?
It’s a bit of an unfair question to ask since Renner is of course going to pick his own character. But it would be an interesting fight to pit Stephen Amell up against Renner. He reveals he did undergo a long period of training to get into Hawkeye character, “I’m pretty good with a bow and arrow, I could kill most of you people here *laughs*” however also readily admits that his form is definitely not one to be replicated should you wish to take up archery properly.
What actually happened in Budapest?
When a fan gets up to quiz Renner on *that scene* from The Avengers, things seem to go a little awry with the microphone. Or more accurately Renner fakes some technical difficulties in order to bypass answering the question. It’s a nice little bit of situational and physical comedy as he taps the mic and muffles into it. Guess we all are just left to imagine it for ourselves!
