This weekend’s Saturday Night Live featured guest host Jeremy Renner who was all too happy to reprise his role as Hawkeye in a very amusing AVENGERS spoof that also featured Jason Sudeikis as Iron Man, Bill Hader as Thor, Bobby Moynihan as the Hulk, Taran Killam as Captain America, Kate McKinnon as a dead-on Black Widow, Jay Pharoah as Nick Fury, and Vanessa Bayer as Maria Hill. The spoof raises questions again about just how Black Widow and a guy with some arrows can compete with a god, a monster, and a man in a flying suit. Hader and SNL head writer Seth Myers are both huge comics fans who have written for Marvel, so the humor hitting its target isn’t a big surprise.
Watch the whole skit below…if you live in the US.
