Jeremy Renner sings about Hawkeye's super powers on The Tonight Show

The cast of The Avengers is making the rounds to promote Age of Ultron which hits theaters may 1st. Jeremy Renner was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Jeremy plays Hawkeye in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In the first movie, Hawkeye didn't really get much screen time. It wasn't his fault he had been brainwashed, but he was also on the wrong side most of the movie. But all that's changed. Hawkeye gets more screen time according to director Joss Whedon. Hawkeye gets more to do in this film. But it's hard to stack up to the likes of Thor and the Hulk.

To prove that Hawkeye is just as cool as the other superheroes, Jeremy (who actually used to have a garage band called Hot Ice), showed up on The Tonight Show dressed as Hawkeye and sang a song about how Hawkeye has powers too -- just like Thor and Iron Man. He sat at a piano which had a bow and arrow on it, as well as a martini in a glass. He sang to the tune of Ed Sheeran's hit "Thinking Out Loud" but changed the lyrics.

The lyrics were hilarious. He sings, "But listen I’ve got powers too, they’re pretty sweet / I promise I can do so much more than just archery." He shares some cool facts about Hawkeye, such as the fact that he has a collection of scarfs and berets and his cat has his own Instagram account. He croons, "I kick ass at Mario Cart/ This year I played an extra in Paul Blart/ I can open a pickle jar, the hard kind/ Maybe I'm as super as they are.

Perhaps the most impressive fact? When he goes to Chipotle he's gets free guac, when he flirts with the cashier she says he rocks. He even has video of that incident. Oh, Hawkeye. You had us at scarves and berets. Take a look:
