Avengers game Hawkeye missing

While many of us were enjoying the on-screen heroics of Thor, Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, and The Hulk, there was a presence missing throughout the Marvel’s Avengers game reveal trailer. Hawkeye was nowhere to be seen. Unless he was on a super-secret mission unrelated to the events of the game trailer, Hawkeye definitely should have been there. He’s one of the original Avengers, for crying out loud!

Unfortunately, Hawkeye, Clint Barton or otherwise, simply did not appear in the reveal trailer for the Marvel’s Avengers game. As of writing, he isn’t in the game. This doesn’t mean, however, that Hawkeye is missing from Marvel’s Avengers. We could see the expert marksman appear yet.

Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers game is due to release on May 15, 2020. There’s plenty of time between right now and its release date for more characters to be confirmed. Square Enix has shown us a reveal trailer, with a little gameplay and a handful of characters. While it is strange that Hawkeye wasn’t involved, he could appear in any number of future trailers for the Avengers game.

Despite this, without official word from Square Enix or Marvel, we cannot confirm one way or another whether or not Hawkeye will appear in the Avengers game. Hopefully, Square Enix reveals that the archer will appear in the game sooner rather than later. Keep those fingers crossed, though, it might help.
