Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye has been a ghost in the Infinity War promos. The character has not been seen in any of the trailers released for the epic movie. Since he was one of the OGs in the first and second Avengers films, many fans have wondered where is he.
Director Anthony Russo provided a short answer. “All will be explained when people see the movie. It’s all tied into the story,” he said.
Set photos released from Avengers 4 with Jeremy Renner in a new costume. Fans have speculated that the costume is his Ronin costume.
In comics, Clint becomes Ronin when he rejoins the Avengers following Civil War. If this new costume for Avengers 4 really does indicate that Clint is taking up the new mantle it would make sense, at least in regard to story. The last time audiences saw Hawkeye was in Captain America: Civil War which saw the Avengers break apart over the Sokovia Accords that established a UN panel to control the team.
