In Hawkeye, a blast from Clint’s past finds him reluctantly teaming up with Kate to deal with a criminal conspiracy before he can return to his family in time for Christmas.
However, after a virtual roundtable with Jeremy and Hailee Friday, 19 November, we can’t help but wonder if the weary and jaded persona of Clint is truly an act.
After all, the 50-year-old didn’t really seem invested in the interview — at one point, even leaning back and sliding into his seat while co-star Hailee was replying to a question. Maybe he could really be a low-energy person, but it was a stark contrast to Hailee who was just brimming with excitement.
When asked by a media outlet whether the series would be the last viewers will see of Clint, he replied (almost a bit too brusquely): “I don’t have a crystal ball. I’m not a soothsayer, that’s for sure, and so I have no idea. I have no idea; you’re going to have to watch the series.
“Maybe that’ll tell you or maybe it won’t. Anytime you want to go in the future tense of an MCU discussion, it’s already going to be dead in the water. You got to know this by now.”
