HAWKEYE in BLACK WIDOW: Joke For Charity or A Real Hint?

Is Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton/Hawkeye in Black Widow? Titular star Scarlett Johansson seems to imply he is in a jokey new 'set video' promoting a charity campaign in conjunction with the film.

In the video, Johansson walks around the Black Widow 'set' (presumably a contrivance for the video, as filming wrapped some time ago), with her cellphone camera orientation 'mistakenly' set backwards at her face instead of the things she's meant to be describing in front of her. At one point, Johansson says "I like that haircut!" to someone off camera before saying, "Spoiler alert, he's in the movie," - though the person she's talking about is not seen.

Given the fervor around Clint Barton/Hawkeye's haircut in Avengers: Endgame and his well-established relationship with Black Widow, the natural assumption is she's implying it's him - though even if so, it could be a pure joke for the promotional video.

Black Widow opens in theaters May 1. Fans who donate to Johansson's Omaze charity campaign for Solar Responders are entered to win a chance to attend the film's premiere and afterparty.
