Jeremy Renner has a new French bulldog & is Renner out of ‘Avengers 2′?

Here are some new photos of Jeremy Renner out and about in New York City on Friday. Jeremy was with his new little dog friend, whose name I do not know. I believe the breed is French bulldog. Jeremy had a French bulldog a few years ago too, a cream-colored sweetheart named Franklin. Franklin passed away last year when Jeremy’s friend/roommate (cough) took the puppy outside for an extended period of time on a really hot day, and the dog died of what amounted to heat stroke. It was really sad because Jeremy even talked about how much he loved Franklin in several interviews.

This little dog looks especially sweet, but he also sort of looks like Renner too, right? They say dogs begin to resemble their owners, but I think Jeremy just got a dog who looks a lot like him. I like his little vest thing. I wonder how the puppy is getting along with the new baby, Ava Berlin…?

Meanwhile, have you heard all of the gossip about Renner possibly being out of any potential Marvel follow-up film, like The Avengers 2 or whatever? There were several stories claiming that Jeremy and Marvel execs had fallen out and that if Hawkeye returned to the franchise(s), the part would be recast, like they did when Terrence Howard left the Iron Man franchise (he was pushed out over a money dispute). Currently, Perez Hilton claims that Renner will definitely return as Hawkeye in an upcoming film, but other people are saying that Hawkeye might be completely written out of the series altogether. Who knows?

    Awww…I love French bulldogs, he is adorbs!!

  4. Londongal says:

    Does anyone really give a sh** if Hawkeye isn’t in the next one? He’s a bit lame as a character isn’t he? *ducks objects from Renner Fans*

  5. don't kill me i'm french says:

    his dog came with him on his last filming in Boston ( his baby mama was also with him but i have no pic)

  6. Kaboom says:

    Hawkeye was the weakest character on The Avengers even though he had plenty of screen time so I wouldn’t be surprised if they wrote him out and replaced him, maybe with the Black Panther character to add a bit of color to the cast (other than green, that is).

  7. Hakura says:

    They really -do- favor eachother! Maybe it was just ‘meant to be’. Such a ‘solid’ looking little guy. It looks like the ‘vest’ on the leash is comfortable =3

    I am owned by two French Bulldogs – both fell into my life when I needed them most, those little guys gave me a reason to wake up in the morning.

    I “inherited” George when my mom bought him on a whim (she does things like that…) and decided a week later that she couldn’t raise a pup. He’s been with me since.

    I got Cookie through a rescue organisation I worked with. She was so neglected and sick, everyone who saw her thought she would not make it. Today, she is healthy and happy.

    Frenchies cannot deal well with hot weather due to their smushed faces and body mass. They are stoic little things and you have to keep an eye on them to look for signs it’s time to go inside and chill out.

    Sorry for the PSA, I love my two shnuggies and it breaks my heart that Jeremy’s buddy passed away due to heat. As for Hawkeye…meh.

    I love Franklin! Frenchies are too cute! I have a pug (Bruno) and he gets overheated pretty fast too he stays inside most of the summer except in the morning and cool evenings. And really who cares if he doesn’t do Avengers 2 it’s all about the Hulk, Ironman and Thor! (Oh Thor) ;)

  10. Sigh says:

    Aww, save Renner! I like him.

  11. Miss M says:

    Honestly, replacing Terrence Howard was a great idea. Don Cheadle is so much better and has much more chemistry with RDJ.

    I think it is also about chemistry. I like Hawkeye’s chemistry with black widow. But , I guess, I am in the minority here.

    Oh, I felt sometimes he tried to be to intense like hurt locker, etc. This is not an Oscar role…

    I think “the Avengers” are fine with the actors they have now. The chemistry is really good.

  12. Nerd Alert says:

    Ugh, Hawkeye sucks. Not Renner, just the character; in the graphic novels he’s really just a side show anyway. The way they make Avengers 2 better than Avengers is to take out Hawkeye, Black Widow and Pepper Potts, or at least put Pepper in her place.

    I saw Iron Man 3 yesterday and there was too much Pepper Potts (among other complaints). However, the best thing they did IMO is swap Terrance Howard for Don Cheadle, whose biceps were on full display. Plus, RDJ is always a good thing.

      “Graphic novels” just cracks me up. They used to be comic books.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        There is a difference between ‘comic’ books and ‘graphic’ novels, which are more violent, grittier, and often littered with bad words, adult humor, and sex. Things you don’t find in comic books.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Cracks you up? That’s interesting.

        No they weren’t. Comic books are for children, and graphic novels are for adults, like Emma said. Always has been this way.

        In fact, the Joker series arc graphic novels are some of the most violent, depraved images I’ve seen while the X-Men and Spiderman ones are incredibly sexualized. The quality of the illustrations is also far more advanced and intricate than anything you’d see in a comic book.

        If you’re not interested in it, it’s whatever, but no need to spout off like you know anything about it, you know, whatsoever.

    • Meaghan says:

      Rdj gets hotter and hotter. Only reason I love the movies so much! And pepper needs to get outta there. Hate her. Later on in the comics she marries some other guy so lets hope they skip to that. I read somewhere they’re thinking of kicking rdj and recasting after avengers 2, if they do I won’t watch. Damn he is sexy.

  13. truthful says:

    I used to really love him and Jonathon Rhys in a good Brit drama or two..

    haven’t seen much of either lately, I hate action movies, so maybe that’s why I missed them both.

    cute lil doggy

  14. Legal Annie says:

    I would tap that until it was dead and then some after it was in its grave.

  15. Maria_Spain says:

    “Jeremy’s friend/roommate (cough)”

    jajajajajaja ;) Assistant?

  16. Maggie says:

    He and his dog have the same face!

  17. Julia says:

    Cute! Avengers left me wanting more of Hawkeye. If the character is written out of the films I will understand, but I will lose a lot of interest. If they recast Renner then I have seen my last Marvel film; having taken one for the storyline last time he deserves a fair shake this time.

    Ava and Jeremy pic

    I think this dog’s name is Bently and the one left in L.A. is Hemi. He’s had them for quite a few months. Franklin didn’t pass away because “someone” was neglectful. He passed because “somone” was at his nephew’s T-Ball/baseball game and doggie was playing with the kids.Overheated and heartfailure. They even tried to do CPR on the little guy.Frenchies aren’t even allowed in cargo on airplanes if the temp outside is over 75 degrees or somewhere around there. Probably why JR didn’t take both because he could only have one as carry-on.

  20. Dommy Dearest says:

    Hawkeye is a cool character, I like him better than his counterpart Green Arrow- Though I like Green Arrow and Black Canary’s working relationship than Hawkeye and Black Widow. (not that damned Arrow show mind you)

    On comicvine they had a scoop that Renner, Hemsworth and Scarlett haven’t signed on for Avengers 2 yet due to salary issues. RDJ walked with $50 million while the others walked with a sum close to $200,000. Granted if someone paid me $200,000 to play a comic character I’d be all hell to the yeah.

    Scarlett and Hemsworth need to stay on as their characters. Though they need to actually give Natasha her beautiful hair. Scarlet is a waning in fame and Chris, while I can stare at him all day, isn’t that great of an actor and should stick with his role of Thor.

  21. Halicon says:

    Ewww he is looking rough. I think the pug would make a better looking Hawkeye at this point. He was alright in Avengers but his character was kind of pointless. If he is too expensive I would prefer that they just leave out hawkeye and bring in more female superheroes.

  22. Rebbeca Long says:

    I love Jeremy but his dog is definitely steeling the show.

    Have you seen this cute little pumpkin? Such a charmer.
