  • Who is the Fox on The Masked Singer? Fans tuning into season 2 reveal their top guesses below.
  • If we had to pick one, we'd say The Masked Singer Fox is Jeremy Renner.

Season 2 of The Masked Singer is already prompting a lot of wild theories and guesses about the Fox character on the show, despite only having a small handful of clues. To help cut down on the guess work, we've rounded up all the clues, top guesses, and theories about the Fox below.

Who is the Fox on The Masked Singer? Let's first look at the clues:

After watching the above video teaser, we know that:

  • The Fox is "coming out of its den."
  • The Fox is "clever" and "strategic" and willing to eat almost anything. Oh, and they're a "superhero," too.
  • The celebrity personally "conjured up" the details on the Fox's costume, which includes a glowing eye, steering-wheel nose, monocle, and top hat.

The internet's top top guesses and theories for the Fox:

Jeremy Renner

The Theory: As Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans already know, Jeremy has played Hawkeye ever since he first appeared in Thor. This would definitely satisfy the superhero clue, and could be why the Fox seems to put an emphasis on one eye (hawkeye, get it?). On top of that, Jeremy is set to voice a fox in the upcoming film Arctic Dogs. The movie is slated to come out on November 1, which could mean that Jeremy is using the show to help promote the new flick.

Beyond all of these clues, Jeremy is a really talented singer, which you can see in the video below:

Sebastian Stan

The Theory: Sebastian plays Bucky, who is also part of the MCU. But unlike Jeremy's character, Bucky has a metal arm, which looks an awful lot like the the forest creature's left arm. Besides that though, the internet hasn't given much more of an explanation on why it's Sebastian, so we're on the fence about this one.

The Theory: Based on the Fox's costume alone and the superhero reference (Samuel is known for playing Nick Fury in the MCU), many think it's the award-winning actor. But, again, we're not so sure about this theory. After all, when Samuel sang on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke series, he didn't exactly display what judge Jenny McCarthy called the Fox's "Broadway, Tony-award" voice. But, hey, you never know!

Our top prediction:

If we had to pick based on the clues we have so far, we'd say the Fox on The Masked Singer is Jeremy Renner. As new hints roll in though, all of that could change in a heartbeat. So, we'll just have to wait and see!
