Avengers: Infinity War directors answer the question that fans have been obsessed with

No spoilers but this is extremely interesting.

Given the fact that approximately 1,437 superheroes and villains are going to feature in Avengers: Infinity War - not an exact figure but Christ almighty, there are a lot of people in this film! - it's curious that one character has dominated the discussion in the buildup to the latest Marvel blockbuster, Hawkeye.

Ever since he gazed upon Thor trying to lift Mjölnir in Kenneth Branagh's film, Jeremy Renner's character has been something of a peripheral, yet integral, part of The Avengers.

After all, he was central to the plot of Avengers Assemble after helping Loki to steal the tesseract - damn mind control - and since then, he helped to save Sokovia in Avengers: Age of Ultron and kicked ass during Captain America: Civil War.

Hell, Clint Barton might not have any superpowers but at least he has the courage to go shoulder-to-shoulder with superhumans and gives it his all. Some man.

Despite the fact that he seems like the Avenger that's happiest to retire - after all, he does have a family - film fans have been wondering why Hawkeye was left out of the poster for Avengers: Infinity War.
