But how does this theory fit into the continuity of Marvel films? Better than their Netflix shows, that's damn sure. For one thing, there's a reason why Hawkeye is never around to help his Avenger buddies in their solo films. Conversely, the constant salvation of the world explains why Jerry never seems to be close to his normal friends. She also answers the question of the Civil War in which the public must ask itself, "What is Hawkeye doing in his spare time?" Golf was finally too easy. "Played 18, shot 18," says Clint, winking at the camera.
So, what if Hawkeye plunged into this lifelong day-and-day game with his friends instead? It would certainly explain the efforts that Jerry makes. If he is not part of Ewok, it takes awhile to build a star-destroying battering ram out of a tree.
And then of course there are the three obvious, very silly hints that the movie gives us. The first is that Jerry's name is Jerry fucking Pierce just like this thing for which arrows are famous. It's a kind of dead giveaway, though it's better than Jerry McDefinitelyNotHawkeye.
