BUT, Hawkeye most certainly is in the phase 2 plans and is a "core" member of The Avengers 2. Also, I doubt Joss would recast the role just to put Hawkeye on his TV show considering he's the one who cast Renner in the first place.

Everything about that rumor sounds made up.
To be fair, I think Marvel was in the process of casting Renner in late 2009 before Joss came onboard as the Avengers director in April 2010.

But I agree with you, Whedon would want Renner back rather than recast the part.
