10 Avengers 4 Facts We Know Already

9. Hawkeye Will Make A Comeback

Benching Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye was one of Avengers: Infinity War's most controversial stunts, but at least they had a compelling reason for that in story terms. The events of Captain America: Civil War didn't make things easy for superheroes with families, so Clint Barton was forced off the grid, along with Ant-Man.

The good news is that he won't stay off it for long because the master archer is almost certain to make a comeback in Avengers 4. Both Renner and the Russos have alluded to this, and set leaks have only added fuel to such rumours.

The Hawkeye leaks appear to show the character in a very different getup, one which is reminiscent of his Ronin costume from the comic books. Ronin is the identity Barton takes on after his family is killed in Marvel lore, and that could be an indication of how Mrs Barton and his children fared when Thanos snapped his fingers.

Of course, the fate of his family is open to speculation but there's overwhelming evidence to suggest Hawkeye will be slinging arrows once again in Avengers 4.
