The Black Widow post-credit scene of the movie was certainly a mystery. A confrontation between Yelena Belova and Clint Barton? Well, the new Hawkeye trailer might have some answers!
Hawkeye and Natasha Romanoff sparring matches are an MCU tradition. But Yelena is the new Black Widow in town, and she is out hunting Hawkeye. Yelena is working for Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine in the post-Blip world. And is assigned to kill the person responsible for Natasha’s death.
All of this raises one question: Why does Contessa want Hawkeye dead? He is one of the least problematic of all The Avengers. Moreover, he has been trying to retire since the days of the Civil War. So, why is he a target for Contessa? The Hawkeye trailer has got some answers for us!
Return of Ronin
While Hawkeye is trying to spend some quality time with his family, he hears the breaking news of murderous vigilante Ronin returning to town. Now, viewers know that Clint takes over the identity of Ronin after his family snaps out of existence. And he started killing people who he thought didn’t deserve to live. The return of Ronin could only mean one thing that this one is a copycat killer.
Also, the US government knows Ronin’s identity. And Contessa presumably works for them. This means she knows the identity of Ronin. She might have thought that Clint has brutally returned from his retirement. And at the same time when Ronin was active in New York while Clint was visiting. If that’s the case, she can be forgiven, and this will perfectly explain why she has sent Yelena to kill Clint.
But Yelena has personal motives to kill Clint. She knows that Clint is responsible for Natasha’s death. Her motive is revenge! If she fights Hawkeye, either she will be taken out or Hawkeye will try to talk her down. Moreover, if this theory is right, Kate Bishop is the real target for Yelena.
This tangled web of events is certainly interesting to see starting November 24, 2021, on Disney+.
