Many fans were disappointed about Hawkeye’s absence in Avengers: Infinity War this year. However, the hero will be returning in a completely changed look in the upcoming untitled Avengers 4 and actor Jeremy Renner is already super excited to face Thanos.
What makes it all the way more interesting is Renner’s use of the phrase “circling the wagon”, that usually means to defend something. But with Thanos’ already wiping out half the existence, what’s left to defend?
“We [at Marvel] love Hawkeye. There are big, big story things coming up for Hawkeye and Jeremy Renner is as strong an actor as anyone in the MCU and awesome as this character. But ‘The guy with the bow and arrow jokes’, right? There are a lot of ‘Guy with bow and arrow jokes.’ He even makes ‘Guy with a bow and arrow’ jokes in some of the movies. So I love that people go from ‘Oh, Hawkeye is just lucky to be there,’ to ‘Oh, where is he? He’s not there? What’s going to happen? We need Hawkeye. We want more Hawkeye.’ I love it. It’s the best.”

Renner has been previously spotted on the set of Avengers 4 so it’s clear that he does know some of the Marvel secrets that will be revealed with the film next year. Renner said the following regarding secrets:
“Everybody’s got to bite their tongue. But if you like Infinity War, there’s some stuff to come. What I do know is it’s going to be awesome.”

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
