Jeremy Renner Defends Hawkeye (in Song) on The Tonight Show — Watch

He may not have super-human strength or a sweet Nordic hammer, but The Avengers‘ Hawkeye still has plenty to offer the world — you know, like an Instagram account entirely devoted to his cat.

Taking aim at the critics who shoot down (tee hee!) his character’s usefulness in the Marvel Universe, Jeremy Renner crooned a defensive ditty — to the tune of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” no less — during Tuesday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Did you know Hawkeye was an extra in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2? Were you aware he can open a pickle jar all by himself? Honestly, I’m starting to think this song is as educational as it is entertaining.

Hit PLAY on Renner’s performance above then drop a comment: Is this delightful number enough to make you forget that time Renner called Black Widow a “slut”?
