Jeremy Renner's Agent Brandt won't be joining Tom Cruise and the rest of the IMF team on the next Mission Impossible. According to Showbiz 411, Renner's commitments to Marvel will prevent him from taking part, but they also hinted that Renner wanted to move on from the franchise regardless of his other obligations.
Early reports indicated that Renner's Marvel commitments would be extended to a supporting role in Ant-Man and The Wasp. Hawkeye and Paul Rudd's Scott Lang fought on the same side and had some good banter in Civil War, so it wouldn't be out of the realms of possibility that Hawkeye shows up in Ant-Man 2. However, director Peyton Reed quickly shot those rumours down on Twitter.
Jeremy Renner joined the Mission Impossible franchise for the fourth instalment Ghost Protocol and reprised the role in 2015's Rogue Nation. Ironically, Paramount cast Renner as a possible successor to the series in the event of Tom Cruise wanting to move on.
