Here's Why We Haven't Seen Anything From Hawkeye In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Yet

Fans have been wondering why Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye has been absent from promo material from Avengers: Infinity War marketing materials and now the movie's directors have finally shed some light on that.

Hawkeye got the short end of the stick in The Avengers but Jeremy Renner was given meatier roles in both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Now, with Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon, fans are wondering why there's been no sign of the archer in the various pieces of promo art and official imagery for the movie. Well, thanks to Joe and Anthony Russo, we finally have an answer. 

During an on-set interview to promote the movie, they were asked about Clint Barton's absence and explained that Hawkeye is going to be "on his own journey" when we catch up with him next month.


"Coming out of Civil War, he’s in the same position that Cap and Falcon are at the end of that movie," Joe Russo explains. "And Ant-Man. And coming into this movie you know … the characters on Cap’s side coming out of the Civil War, some made certain decisions and others made other decisions that led to different paths in them dealing with oversight in this movie in a different way. So Hawkeye’s on his own journey in this movie." Does that mean he won't make an appearance?
 
Thankfully, it sounds like Hawkeye will indeed have some sort of role to play in Avengers: Infinity War because Anthony adds, "Yeah. He has a unique reaction to the civil war situation that puts him in a special spot in this film." Will fan theories about his family dying and Clint adopting the Ronin persona in Avengers 4 pan out? Based on everything we've seen, it appears as if that's going to be the case.
