Fans know the ins and outs of their favorite franchises, sometimes more than the actors portraying the characters. Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld recently filmed a video of themselves taking an online Marvel quiz to see how much they knew. However, the two could barely introduce what the video was about without breaking out in laughter.

‘Hawkeye’ stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld could not stop laughing to introduce the Marvel quiz

Filming never has a straightforward process. Actors goof off in many behind-the-scenes clips and gag reels. However, even edited down, Renner and Steinfeld laughed and cracked for nearly a full half minute.

“We’re never going to make it through this quiz,” Steinfeld laughed between breaths.

Renner could hardly say, “Hi, I’m Jeremy Renner, and I play Hawkeye,” without Steinfeld or himself breaking into hysterics. The two tried to compose themselves several times, only to laugh again.

“Relax, you’ve got to get your head in place,” Renner told Steinfeld, despite laughing just as much as she did.

However, they eventually managed to hold themselves together long enough to start the quiz with a Captain America question.

Hailee Steinfeld and Jeremy Renner answered around 80% correctly on the online Marvel quiz

There are many online Marvel quizzes and “test your knowledge” challenges. Renner and Steinfeld, who play Hawkeye and Kate Bishop in Hawkeye, decided to take one of these quizzes.

They answered 10 questions from BuzzFeed on various movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some asked about Black Widow’s key moments while others focused on Stan Lee’s cameos. 

The Marvel heroes managed to put up a decent score, answering around 80% of the questions correctly. As for the 20% the Marvel archers missed in the quiz? Renner got some key questions wrong.

The ‘Hawkeye’ actor answered questions wrong for scenes he filmed

While it seems like Renner would struggle to answer trivia for movies he did not star in, he actually missed answers for scenes in which he appeared. He had trouble remembering Natasha Romanov’s final words but recalled them at the last moment.

The Marvel quiz then asked who first tried to lift Thor’s hammer in a question about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Renner struggled to remember the scene. He reasoned that Tony Stark sounded like he would try to lift Thor’s hammer first. And Steinfeld’s jaw dropped.

“Wrong!” Steinfeld replied. “Clint Barton makes fun of Thor’s hammer and then is the first person to try and lift it.”

“Hey, you don’t have to push it,” Renner said, laughing again.
