Rumors About ‘Hawkeye’ Season 2 Hint at Timeline & Characters Expected to Appear

Jeremy Renner Ready To Gear Up For His Return To The MCU Ill Be Ready

Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is a beloved character in the MCU. His last live-action appearance was in the ‘Hawkeye’ show, though he recently voiced a character in ‘What If…?’ Season 2 Episode ‘What If…Happy Hogan Saved Christmas.’

Disney+ shows typically don’t get a second season, except for ‘Loki,’ which had a successful second season. Now it appears that another MCU show, ‘Hawkeye,’ will be getting a second season as well.

Keep in mind that there’s no official confirmation for the show yet, only rumors from industry insiders. MyTimeToShineHello has returned with more details about the show’s timeline and potential characters.

According to the leaker, the new season will also be set during Christmas, similar to the first season. Clint’s brother, Barney, will play a major role, and the season will draw inspiration from The Raid, with Kate and Clint trapped in a single location. Reportedly, the studio is searching for a big-name actor to portray Barney.

Hawkeye scoop

If you’re concerned about the time that’s passed since Hawkeye’s last MCU appearance, you’re right to be. Not only was his character “retired” with Kate Bishop taking over, but Jeremy Renner also had a serious accident a year ago.

On January 1, 2023, Renner was hospitalized after a severe accident at home involving his snowplow, resulting in blunt chest trauma and 30 broken bones. The snowplow, weighing 14,330 pounds, ran over him. He underwent surgery and remained in critical condition in the intensive care unit until January 17 when he was discharged. Ten weeks later, he started walking with a cane. Remarkably, Renner was clinically dead when he received medical attention.

Despite the significant time gap, there’s no reason why Hawkeye couldn’t return to the MCU. Renner himself stated he feels strong enough to come back. As for his character’s retirement, Hawkeye has retired multiple times before and always returned, so this isn’t unusual.
