marvel has finally dropped the first trailer for "Avengers: Endgame," and it showed us that Hawkeye survived the Thanos snap, but has become a new man. Last year, photographers managed to take a few pictures of Jeremy Renner in a very different costume than his regular Hawkeye attire. Fans immediately knew this meant Hawkeye was transforming into Ronin.

We Got This Covered reported that in the new trailer, Hawkeye is seen dressed up in black and gold and holding a katana blade on the streets of a Japanese city. Ronin was the name Clint Barton used in the comics from 2007 to 2010.

The name change occurred because Clint died in 2004 but then was brought back to life in 2007.

Hawkeye remerges as a darker character

In the comics, a young lady named Kate Bishop took on the persona of Hawkeye, wearing a purple costume and using trick arrows. Clint thought she was doing well. Clint wanting to keep his return secret from the world, he took the name Ronin from a dead Avenger, Maya Lopez.

In "Avengers: Endgame" it appears that Clint may have darker motivation. Fans believe that his appearance means that his family did not survive the Thanos snap. Prior to "Infinity War," Clint retired from S.H.I.E.L.D. and returned to his family.

Jeremy Renner excited to be back as Hawkeye

In the trailer, Captain America says "We lost, all of us ...

we lost family." Renner took to Twitter to say hello to his fans, in response to the trailer release. Renner's appearance in the film was not a major surprise, as he has shared multiple selfies during his time on the set. He even tweeted out following "Infinity War" saying he may need to suit up soon.

Fans have been dying to see Renner return since they first learned that his character would not be seen in "Avengers: Infinity War." During the film, it was explained that Hawkeye and Ant-Man took plea deals following the events of "Captain America: Civil War" and were retired.

Fans will have to wait and see what drove Hawkeye's transformation into Ronin.

Comic Book reported that the "Avengers: Endgame" trailer dropped this morning and has been seen 26 million times. Fans are now waiting for the second trailer to drop, which is anyone's guess to when that will happen. Some Marvel fans believe it will air during the Super Bowl in February. "Endgame" will be opening on April 26, 2019. Before "Avengers: Endgame," "Captain Marvel" will make her debut on March 8, 2019. Spider-Man returns in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" on July 5, 2019.
