Hawkeye (or Clint Barton, played by Jeremy Renner) became one of the most reluctant of all Marvel superheroes, paused for a while, and then found himself deep down. His initial retirement was for a good reason after facing some major difficulties, including fighting Ultron as a starter. At the Battle of Sokovia, mercury gave his life to save Hawkeyes and made him feel guilty.
Returning to family life after such a wild ride was definitely not easy. But Clint managed to face one of the greatest horrors: seeing his family turn to dust during Thanos’ snapshot. Of course, there was another resignation before the snap, which led Hawkeye back into the fight.
Now it could finally be done.
Should Hawkeye be retired all the time?
It was really impossible for Hawkeye to stay out of the Avengers spotlight as he was one of the original founders and recruited favorites like Natasha Romanoff. As he went through a period when Loki temporarily brainwashed him, Hawkeye managed to get back to normal and prove how much he was a normal family man.
This was in contrast to the original comic person who was far wilder. Still, fans didn’t mind if at least one superhero led a normal life at times. The separation of these two worlds was probably a surreal experience for Clint.
He seemed to reintegrate into his family at all times during his retirement. This first retirement was much shorter than planned when Captain America called him to join The Avengers. Civil war.
However, the appearance of the snapshot pulled him back to a fighter without anyone recruiting him directly. Hawkeye became Ronin for five years, killing criminals on his way as a feeling of catharsis after losing his family.
After the battle of Thanos, Hawkeye may not feel needed

Thanks to Black Widow’s recruitment of Hawkeye for the last fight with Thanos, Clint was able to bring his family back during the reverse snap. You’d think back with your family and things relatively calm after the 2023 snap, maybe Hawkeye will retire.
Maybe he should never say never unless there is a spell three times. At Reddit, fans believe Hawkeye is likely to retire with a logical successor. They also remind that Hawkeye is still available for its own Disney + show.
It may still be hard to believe that he can take it. The series can exist as a vehicle to see the Hawkeye crossing and train someone to take his place. While there is still debate about who this might be, the comic lore says it will likely be Kate Bishop, a master archer. A Reddit user says: “All of these characters still have so much potential, but Hawkeye is undeniably retiring over the course of his TV show. It could happen halfway or at the end of the series, but Kate Bishop will be the new Hawkeye. “
Most interestingly, there is an imperative twist between Hawkeye and Kate in the comics.
Will Hawkeye die and then be resuscitated by Scarlet Witch?
Those who know their Marvel comics will know that Hawkeye dies after handing bow and arrow to Kate Bishop. Hawkeye is later revived by Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), which leads him to work together with Kate Bishop under the name Hawkeye.
Letting this happen in the series would be an interesting twist, including re-leading a woman after inheriting the role of a previously male superhero.
Well, unless the MCU version of Hawkeye prefers to be back on his farm with his family. After seeing how comfortable he felt there during his retirement, it seems less likely that he would ever want to share his superhero title with anyone else.
