10HAWKEYE: TRYING TO SACRIFICE HIMSELF INSTEAD OF BLACK WIDOW
Hawkeye’s role in the MCU has been somewhat controversial. Many fans felt that he should have been the one to die on Vormir instead of Black Widow. While the creators of Avengers: Endgame might have not given Hawkeye the sacrifice play, the fact is that Hawkeye would have died
instead of Natasha in a heartbeat.
The two have been close friends for years and care deeply about each other. It’s clear that despite Hawkeye’s bad, flawed choices in Endgame, he still would have died instead of his friend and to get the stone.
