SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this text incorporates spoilers from Avengers: Infinity War. Proceed at your individual threat.
Anticipation for Avengers: Infinity War has been constructing for months, as new trailers and forged photographs have slowly been rolled out. But all through all of the promotion for the movie, there’s been one query on everyone’s lips — the place is Hawkeye?
The hero was nowhere to be discovered on the film poster, which managed to suit a gargantuan quantity of Marvel characters into the art work. And he didn’t pop up in any of the trailers both.
Was his function in Infinity War being saved a secret? Or is it doable that one of many unique Avengers merely doesn’t seem in such a monumental movie?
Well sadly for Hawkeye followers, it’s formally the latter. Clint Barton will not be in Avengers: Infinity War.
So Where Is He?
We final noticed Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War, the place he was locked up in jail with Wanda, Ant-Man, and The Falcon for siding with Captain America in opposition to the Sokovia Accords. Cap broke the crew out on the finish of the movie, they usually have been all compelled to go on the run.
Well when Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon pop up in Infinity War, neither Hawkeye nor Ant-Man is with them. Cap explains that each of these heroes are presently underneath home arrest and that’s the first and final time we hear about them.
House arrest. House arrest?! Hawkeye might help the Avengers destroy murderous aliens however he can’t get out of his own residence to assist his crew deliver down Thanos with a view to save the whole universe?
The Russo brothers have responded to the web’s hunt for Hawkeye up to now, asking followers to be affected person and promising that the story they’re cooking up for him is a little bit of an extended play. But no matter that story is, it wasn’t informed in Infinity War.
On the brilliant facet, this implies he didn’t die within the movie. (We can’t say the identical for a number of of our different favourite characters.) So a minimum of this frees Hawkeye and Ant-Man as much as return for Avengers four. But for Infinity War, you’ll simply have to look at the opposite three dozen Marvel characters face off in opposition to the Mad Titan.
