Jeremy Renner has said that he was unhappy with how his character of Hawkeye came across in superhero smash hit 'Avengers Assemble'.

He adds that he 'did not sign up for' what happens to his character, after he is brainwashed by the evil Loki, played by British actor Tom Hiddleston.

“For 90% of the movie, I'm not the character I signed on to play,” he told the LA Times. “It's kind of a vacancy. [He's] not even a bad guy, because there's not really a consciousness to him.

“To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses... I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No.”

Renner was also disappointed that Hawkeye was the least developed of the team in terms of character.

“Is [Hawkeye] working for SHIELD or not? There's a lot of unanswered questions, even for me.”

Renner is currently starring in 'The Bourne Legacy,' out today, having taken over from Matt Damon in the Bourne series.
