MARVEL favorite Hawkeye has returned to our screens – this time with his own mini series.
But eagle-eyed fans have noticed a subtle change to the Avengers character – a small black hearing aid.
Why does Hawkeye have a hearing aid?
In this new Disney+, the hearing aid is first mentioned in Clinton Barton's – Hawkeye's alter ego – first scene.
In the original comics, Clint Barton had a hearing aid and so directors have decided to revive that.
In episode 2 of the new series, it is revealed why he has one.
There is a montage of Hawkeye's dangerous ventures from previous movies, all of which he's done without a helmet or protection like, for example, Iron Man.
“Clint is a regular guy,” Hawkeye executive producer Trinh Tran told Decider in an interview.
“He doesn’t have superpowers and he gets injured.
"All those experiences and events that he has gone through as an Avenger in the last 10 years has affected him.
"We want to show that, and we haven’t really had a chance to explore that in the other movies, where you show our heroes being bandaged up and being affected by certain events.”
Does Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner wear a hearing aid?
Jeremy Renner has played Hawkeye for a decade.
He has featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Endgame (2019), and Black Widow (2021).
The 50-year-old, from California, does not wear a hearing aid in real life.
How many Hawkeye episodes are there?
The mini series will consist of six episodes.
As of November 24, 2021, two have been released on Disney+.
Each episode is set to be up to 50 minutes long.
Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is also joined by fellow Hawkeye Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld.
