Marvel: Who Is That Unmasked Man?
Will Peter Parker Be Hawkeye in Marvel’s What If…?
Okay. I think this particular Marvel rumor is interesting. However, it kinda pales in comparison to the superhero grab bag we’re getting in “Marvel’s What If…?”
The rumor points out a moment in the teaser for the upcoming Disney+ animated series, which possibly (kinda, maybe) includes a picture of Peter Parker as Hawkeye.
The speculation began to pick up some steam on social media on Monday, so it’s worth having a look at what all the chatter is about.
Check out a freeze-frame from the What If…? trailer captured in a screenshot below!

Now, I see that foggy image and I see Chris Evans (Captain America).
And others are dubious that it’s anyone besides Jeremy Renner.
Oh definitely Renner

Whatever. I am blown away by this show’s concept. And I kinda want to see some really strange character flips. So the only person I DON’T want it to be is, well, Renner.
ComicBook.com explained the concept of What If…?
It’s a place where stories that could never happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe happen based on changes to characters, both small and major. For example, T’Challa is going to be Star-Lord and Peggy Carter will be Captain Britain… In the teaser for What If…?, the series has its own logo in a similar vein as the Marvel Studios logo which plays at the beginning of Marvel movies. However, instead of using iconic moments and characters from previous Marvel Studios movies, the animated What If…? logo seems to pull images from upcoming episodes and teases what we might expect.
Check out the teaser:
Again, you see my point. I am going to sit back and wait for what is served. Chef’s choice, if you will.
However, I did like some of the notes passed by Erik Voss and the New Rockstars crew:
My favorite moment from the videos?
