After missing from the scene in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel superhero Clint Barton/Hawkeye is all set to make a return with a bang in Avengers: Endgame. The film’s first trailer offered fans a brief look at Hawkeye’s new identity, Ronin. In the trailer, Hawkeye was shown in a dramatic scene on the streets of Tokyo taking a brand new moniker, a new outfit, weapon, with no bow and arrow to be found.
Well, two new Avengers: Endgame promo arts have surfaced online offering a detailed look at the new Ronin outfit and his new weapon. Shared by Daniel Richtman on Twitter, the first promo art shows a closer look at the character, while the second one offers a full-costume look, complete with Ronin’s katana which replaces Hawkeye’s original bow and arrow set. You can check out the Avengers: Endgame promo art below.
Notably, Hawkeye didn’t share the screen space with his fellow Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War due to being on a house arrest following the events of Captain America: Civil War, where he joined Captain America’s team in refusing to sign the government-imposed Sokovia Accords. Now, the big question is what forced Hawkeye to take on the new mantle. It is expected that he might have lost his family, his wife and two kids post the events of Thanos’ snap.
It is even possible that Hawkeye is just suffering from some stone related mental breakdown as he doesn’t actually recognize Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow after she tracks him down as shown in the trailer. This could certainly explain why he is fighting thugs on the streets of Tokyo rather than helping the surviving Avengers in their battle against Thanos.
We will get to see Hawkeye in his Ronin avatar when Avengers: Endgame debuts in theaters on April 26, 2019.
