The press parade hasn’t slowed down for the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast, but the end is nigh. Jeremy Renner, he plays that Hawk Guy character that chums around the Avengers while they save the world and stuff, was on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show last night.  Renner sang a catchy Ed Sheeran parody that expressed the true essence of the character that even he acknowledges isn’t all that mighty.

Lookin’ for the lyrics? Got you covered:

When you’re on a team with the Hulk and Thor
And we’re all up there on the movie screen,
Will the people believe that I’m not quite as tough?
Will anyone even notice me?

But listen I’ve got powers too, they’re pretty sweet.
I promise I can do so much more than just archery.

I’m serious guys.
I’ve got a collection of scarves and berets.
I play trombone in a ska band.
I once got to second base on my Tinder date.
And my cat has got its own Instagram.

I tell you now
I kick ass at Mario Kart.
This year I played an extra in Paul Blart.
I can open a pickle jar.
I’m friggin’ Hawkeye.
Maybe I’m as super as they are.

So maybe I still haven’t lost my virginity.
But when I bowl I always score at least 70, after six beers

Yes I know ’bout Captain America’s strength.
Hulk becomes a towering man.
But I got seventh place in my fantasy league.
And I once butt-dialed Jean-Claude Van Damme.

When I go to Chipotle I get free guac.
I flirt with the cashier and she says I rock.
I own water-resistant socks.
I’m friggin’ Hawkeye.
Maybe I’m as super as they are.

Maybe I’m as super as they are.
Maybe I’m as super as they are.

If you like Renner and his work outside of the Marvel films, then you might find his performance in the latest season of Louie quite convincing. I really enjoyed Louis C.K.’s interview on Fresh Air, and there’s a great clip of Renner playing a scumbag drug dealer that manipulates young Louie.

"I’m serious guys. I’ve got a collection of scarves and berets..."
“I’m serious guys.
I’ve got a collection of scarves and berets…”

For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, the Avengers sequel hits theatres this weekend.
