Citing an unnamed source, MCU Exchange contends Barton will become Ronin, the costumed identity the character adopted in Marvel comics in 2007 when he rejoined the New Avengers in the wake of Civil War. To bolster the report, the website notes the information comes from the same source that revealed Captain America's new look in Avengers: Infinity War and the inclusion of Thanos' Black Order, both of which proved to be true.

Barton operated as Ronin for about three years to disguise his identity, and exchanged his signature bow and arrows for twin katana and other melee weapons.
