With Hulk it's understandable Ruffalo understands the character is being delegated to Avengers only movies right now. But I don't think Renner likes that from the interview he gave.
When I read that I took it as him saying he didn't want to be a mindless puppet for most of the film next time. I don't think he necessarily minds too much not having his own solo film, he just wants to play the Barton he signed onto (the sarcastic, rash *******).
