Yesterday the Hollywood Reporter released its cover story on Jeremy Renner. Three years ago the now-41 year old actor had toiled away in Hollywood obscurity, until he bagged his first Academy Award nomination for “The Hurt Locker” and at a time when barely anyone knew who he was.

Already bouncing from Chris Evans to Dominic Cooper to Jake Gyllenhaal -- who dropped out exactly one day after news of his coming aboard hit the web -- Albert Hughes has had a helluva time finding a leading man for "Motor City." But, in a nice stroke of luck, he might have landed on yet another quality leading man.

Ever since its surprise announcement a month or so back, "The Counselor," the first script written directly for the screen by Pulitzer Prize-winner Cormac McCarthy, author of "No Country For Old Men" and "The Road," has been one of the hottest projects in Hollywood. Swiftly snapped up by the producers of "The Road," the film soon had Ridley Scott attached to direct, and man-of-the-moment Michael Fassbender locked into the lead role, an attorney who gets way over their head in the drugs trade.

Last summer saw a fairly major clash of the superheroes, with four movies featuring men in tights battling it out for box office supremacy. Marvel's duo of "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" won out over "X-Men First Class" and "Green Lantern," but as it turns out, it was all just a warm up for this summer's main event. July will see follow ups to the two biggest superhero movies in history arrive in the shape of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises," but they won't have it all to themselves, as May doesn't just bring Thor and Captain America back, but also Iron Man, The Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury, for Joss Whedon's "The Avengers."

Could Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt be teaming on Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" before they work on "Twelve Years A Slave"? If everything shakes out, that could very well be the case.

Jeremy Renner has a big year coming up. He's already sat on the sidelines for "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," he's one of "The Avengers," but the real test will be when he steps into the shoes of Matt Damon as the lead of Universal's big spy franchise, "The Bourne Legacy." The lid's been pretty tight on the film so far, but a trailer's arrived via Apple, and it's given us our first real look at Renner in action. And it's not quite what we were expecting.

You could have called this one months ago. Paramount's "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" was supposed to be due in theaters on March 2nd, less than two months from now and we'd barely seen a peep from the film, not a trailer, a poster or anything other than this first-look photo that was revealed just a month ago. Never a good sign. In fact, that close to release and nothing substantial seen and you can almost guarantee a release date bump is on the way.

First Look At Jeremy Renner As Aaron Cross In 'The Bourne Legacy'

We were excited when Jeremy Renner landed a role in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" because we figured it would be his first big prime tentpole, in a movie that would let him show off both his acting chops and action adventure skills. Well, that's only have true. We should have realized that the 'Mission' movies are the Tom Cruise Show, and especially in 'Ghost Protocol,' pretty much the entire supporting cast spends the movie listening to Ethan Hunt. Renner doesn't say much and doesn't do much either in the movie. But, he'll get another swing at the pinata in "The Bourne Legacy."

Since 2009, Jeremy Renner has established himself as the go-to guy for characters with mysterious pasts and unpredictable futures. In fact, he’s so good at it, he got two Oscar nominations in a row playing them in “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” In “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” Renner plays another character, Will Brandt, whose history is linked in unrevealed ways to the series’ longtime hero, Ethan Hunt, and in perhaps predictable form, Renner is reluctant to say too much about Brandt, even in an interview about the film.

Review: 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' Provides Worthwhile Thrills In A Disappointingly Unimaginative Package

“Mission: Impossible” is that rarest of franchises, where it seems unnecessary, or even irrelevant, to compare one installment to another. Because each film was shepherded into existence by a different filmmaker, and in all cases by one branded an “auteur,” they all seem to exist independently, demonstrating strengths and weaknesses none of the others have. And “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” falls perfectly in line with its predecessors: helmed by Brad Bird, whose combination of brisk action and humanizing comedy made Pixar’s “The Incredibles” such a winner, the fourth film is its own entity, a bemusing but visceral thriller that ups the series’ stakes while staying true to its core concepts. But bereft of the unifying concept each of the previous films had – or depending on one’s opinion, that they lacked – 'Ghost Protocol' is a fun but mostly empty adventure story that operates with the rote predictability of a middling ‘90s James Bond movie rather than a benchmark-setting actioner or even seasonal “event movie.”
