Warning: Potential spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron below.

Despite the fact that just this week, Jeremy Renner mentioned there were “rumblings” he could appear in the upcoming Captain America 3, it has long been a fan theory that his character might kick the bucket in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, in an interview with Larry King, Renner says that’s not the case.

“No, no,” Renner said when asked outright if he dies in the sequel. “No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep me around for a while.”

Opening in theaters on May 1, 2015, the highly-anticipated sequel also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann and Paul Bettany.
