Where the hell if Hawkeye? Has the lack of the character in the marketing been one big hint that the archer will kick the bucket? In the weeks leading up to the film, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been a bit cagey about what that’s all about, saying vague remarks that resemble “You’ll know soon,” or “It’s all a part of the plan.” But what is happening with Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye?

In an interview with Joe.ie, the directors don’t necessarily spill the beans on what he’s up to, but it genuinely sounds like they have something pretty good in store for the character. Just because he’s the weakest Avenger, don’t think that means they’re going to Quicksilver him in this movie.

“We keep saying, ‘Patience is a virtue.’ We did not forget the twice-nominated Jeremy Renner. We cooked up a story for him that is a little bit of a long play. Not a short play.”

You hear that? It’s a long play move! I’ve said again and again that I think Hawkeye’s importance in the next two Avengers films will be huge. I speculated that he would be off on his own in this film, and that because of that, his life will be spared, and he will be the one to pick up the pieces of the rest of the gang for the fourth film.

Sure, he may not be the “coolest” Avenger, but I have grown to really like the “grumpy uncle” we got in Captain America: Civil War, and I’m hoping they continue that route going forward.

What do you think the future holds for Hawkeye? Let us know your thoughts down below!
