The biggest Marvel movie, Avengers: Infinity War has now arrived, and it has surely delivered on almost everything which was said about this film.
10 years of build-up and now Thanos has come in and accomplished his mission to bring balance to the Universe by wiping out half the universe.
The movie had started where Thor: Ragnarok had ended, and at this point, it had been shown that Thanos had Power stone and it means that he invaded Xandar & destroyed Nova Corps. Next was the Space Stone which Loki had stolen from Asgard. Thanos set fire on the Collector’s facility and got Reality stone and even sacrificed his daughter, Gamora for the Soul Stone.
The Avengers had been on a mission to stop Thanos, but they did not do it at once, and they split into two teams and were not really up to their full potential. Thanos’ home-world Titan, Team Tony, and half the Guardians were fighting Thanos. Team Cap, Black Panther, Thor and a few others were trying to protect the Mind stone.
So many characters did not really get to live up to their full potential as there were a lot of characters in one story and there was limited screen time for all of them.
One of the 6 Avengers did not show up in this movie and he was not present all throughout the marketing and promotions. This is Joe Russo said:
“We keep saying, ‘Patience is a virtue.’ We did not forget the twice-nominated Jeremy Renner. We cooked up a story for him that is a little bit of a long play. Not a short play.”
Clint Barton (Hawkeye). The fans had been promised that he was not forgotten. This had kept all the fans’ hopes pretty high and Hawkeye was not to be seen.
In the second half of the film, it had been mentioned that after Cap had freed everyone from the Raft, Clint and Scott had made a deal with the government to be put on House arrest.
Now, many Avengers are dead and 6 of the main Avengers live. The very reason we know that Hawkeye will be in Avengers 4 because he was seen on the sets with a new outfit.
Since the story is long and many Avengers are out of the picture, he, Ant-Man and Captain Marvel would have a crucial part to play in Avengers 4.
The big question is that what will push him to turn to a darker path? One of the fan theory suggests that as half the population of the world was obliterated, Hawkeye’s family, might have been part of this. Seeing them turn into ash might have pushed Hawkeye over the edge.
According to very a credible source, a tragic event in Clint Barton’s life will push him into the war. He will be baying for blood after he loses his family.
Since he might not be in the Avenging business, he will be there for revenge. The other Avengers will reassemble and do the same. Since they do not have a lot to lose, they might reassemble for the mission of a lifetime.
Marvel’s President Kevin Feige had this to say:
“Avengers 4 bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale. There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
