With Avengers: Infinity War getting closer, many fans have been wondering what Hawkeye’s (Jeremy Renner) role is in the film, since no footage has been shown of him and he hasnt been shown in any of the marketing. Apparently, he will be coming in the movie with new toys to play with.
Comicbook.com recently met with Marvel Studios prop master Russell Bobbitt to discuss the upcoming Avengers film and he had some very comforting words regarding Hawkeye:
“Hawkeye is getting a lot of cool new stuff. We’re developing a lot of interesting stuff for him. All in the, sort of, bow related but some new gadgets he has in addition to the bow.”
No further details have been giving regarding specifics of the gadgets or upgrades he will be getting or what his overall role in the film will be about. Many have thought Clint Barton would be dubbing his other codename of Ronin in the film or even in Avengers 4. The directors of Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo also had this to say regarding Hawkeye’s place post Civil War:
“Hawkeye coming out of Civil War is in the same position that the Cap and Falcon are in at the end of that movie. And Ant Man. And coming into this movie, the characters who are on Cap’s side coming out of Civil War, some made certain decisions and others made other decisions that led to different paths and them dealing with oversight in this movie in a different way. So, Hawkeye’s on his own journey in this movie.”
