A lot of fans are disappointed to find their favorite superhero Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), aka Hawkeye, missing from the Avengers: Infinity War promotional and marketing campaign. Recently, Marvel Studio released 15 new Entertainment Weekly magazine covers featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Thor, Black Widow, Hulk and some other MCU superheroes. Unfortunately, Hawkeye didn’t make it to the magazine cover.
However, this hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with their own version of the poster featuring Hawkeye. In fact, Renner himself took to Instagram to share a fan-made Entertainment Weekly magazine cover featuring the Avengers’ archer. The actor added a ‘fanart’ hashtag to the picture to make it clear that it wasn’t real. You can check out the Avengers: Infinity War Hawkeye fanart below.
Now, the question that is bothering fans is why Hawkeye not been included in the promotional posters, clip arts and video. If you could recall, in Captain America: Civil War ending, you will remember where each hero goes after being freed. While, Captain America, Black Widow and the Falcon leaves on a Secret Avengers mission to Syria, Vision and the Scarlet Witch hide somewhere together and Ant-Man leaves to see his daughter.
Hawkeye, on the other hand, announces to his teammates that he has officially retired. In the end, Clint heads to meet his wife and three children in his secret home. It might be that when Avengers: Infinity War begins, Hawkeye will be seen enjoying his retirement. Hawkeye is likely to be portrayed as a secondary character in the film. This could be the reason that Marvel Studios hasn’t given emphasis on promoting Hawkeye in the film poster and trailer.
It remains to be seen what could be the reason that will force Hawkeye to come out of retirement and join the other Marvel superheroes in the mission.
Avengers: Infinity War will land in theatres on April 27, 2018.
