Jeremy Renner has been working as Detective Twitch Williams since 2018
An expert on comic films, Jeremy Renner has been tied to the role of detective Maximilian Steven Percival “Twitch” Williams III in the reboot of Spawn since 2018 when it was revealed that the Hawkeye actor will join Jamie Foxx in Todd McFarlanes Directorial debut. For those who don’t know Twitch Williams in the Spawn comics, the character is an NYPD detective who helps the antihero achieve his goals after returning from Hell.
In July 2018, Todd McFarlane credited Jamie Foxx for convincing Jeremy Renner to join the project after seeing the couple in Foxx’s Off Script interview series sponsored by Gray Goose Vodka. After McFarlane asked Foxx to introduce the film to Renner, the actor spoke to his comic book colleague and the rest is history.
