After his inevitable appearance in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye faced an uncertain future. The fan-favorite character saw some major character development in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and we were all excited to see where his arc would go next. Unfortunately, his inclusion in Civil War was arguably intended only to even up the team rosters, and because of this his character development in the film was put on hold. In the aftermath of the superhero civil war, the ending was left open for his character to make a return appearance in future films. It was always assumed that he would show up again in Avengers: Infinity War, given that everybody else in the MCU seems to be there. Now, it looks like we may be one step closer to confirmation of Hawkeye’s roles in not one, but two films in the near future, according to Roger Friedman from Showbiz 411:
“Jeremy Renner will not be in Christopher McQuarrie’s “Mission Impossible 6.” That’s the word and I’ve confirmed it. He did two “MI”s with Tom Cruise, but that was enough. He’s doing two “Avengers” movies back to back instead — “Infinity War” and “Ant-man and the Wasp” as Hawkeye.”
We don’t know how legit this guy is (it says he used to work for Fox News and the Hollywood Reporter so take that as you will) but we’ll take this thing he has to say because the idea of Hawkeye joining in the Ant-Man sequel is a brilliant one. We know how great Arrow Guy and Ant-Man’s tandem was in Captain America: Civil War despite being brief. If we could get an entire film’s worth of some Clint Barton and Scott Lang banter and combo moves, we’re in. With each Phase 3 solo film starting to feature cameos from Avengers, Ant-Man and the Wasp scoring Hawkeye just makes too much sense. Also if you’re well versed in your Hawkeye lore, you’ll know that at some point in his crazy life, Hawkeye donned the name Goliath and made use of them Pym Particles.
Speaking of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Disney held a panel at this year’s Cinema Con in Las Vegas this week, and debuted a possible new logo for the film. I say possible because when shown at these kind of conventions, film logos tend to make changes to them before release (take Thor: Ragnarok for example). You can check out the new logo below:
