To finish off an impressive slate of content in 2021, Marvel Studios gave fans the six-episode Hawkeye series as Phase 4's fifth Disney+ entry, catching up with Clint Barton in a post-Avengers: Endgame New York City. Alongside intriguing side characters like Kate Bishop, her mother Eleanor, and the widow's fiancé Jack Duquesne, the OG Avenger had to uncover a deep criminal underworld in a city he thought he knew well.
Tony Dalton's Jack was involved in one of Hawkeye's key side plots as Clint Barton and Kate Bishop dug into the mystery of the Tracksuit Mafia, which eventually led all the way up the ladder to Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin. Particularly for Kate, this made for an emotional rollercoaster ride in the middle of the season as she thought her mother was about to marry a full-blown criminal.
This all changed when Jack abruptly joined Kate and Clint's side of the fight, fully embracing his Swordsman alter-ego from the comics as he let out his fun side during the fight at the Christmas party in Episode 6. To kick off the new year, Marvel shared a shot of Dalton's mysterious character that didn't make the final cut of Hawkeye.
New Deleted Footage of Jack in Hawkeye
In the Hawkeye gag reel video recently released on Disney+, Marvel revealed a deleted image of Tony Dalton's Jack Duquesne from the MCU series.
At the 30-second mark of the reel, the shot depicts Dalton's character in a jail cell looking more disheveled than he did at any point during the final cut of Hawkeye. It's likely that this moment transpired after his arrest when he was framed by Eleanor for dealings with the Tracksuit Mafia:
Also included is a shot from Episode 6 where Jack is brandishing his sword in the final battle at the Christmas party. While this specific image wasn't in the show, it's reminiscent of the action that came to screen:
Jack Avoiding More Trouble in Hawkeye
Jack Duquesne certainly got into his fair share of trouble during his time in Hawkeye, which far exceeded his potential stepdaughter glaring angrily at him on various occasions. Although the scene didn't make it into the canon MCU, the main picture from the gag reel teased that Jack even spent time in prison due to his alleged dealing with Kazi.
The best bet is that he's in a holding cell after the FBI agents arrest him in front of Kate and Eleanor in Episode 5, shortly after Kate begged her mom to look into Jack's potential wrongdoings. Although it turned out that Eleanor was really the one who murdered Armand III and framed her fiance for it, the Swordsman was in some serious trouble before he joined Kate's side of the fight.
Now that Hawkeye's first (and possibly only) season is officially complete, fans will be looking forward to more behind-the-scenes material from what's been shown as well as teases towards what's coming next. Whether that includes people like Jack and Eleanor is a mystery, although Marvel has plenty of material to work with thanks to its two iconic archers.
All six episodes of Hawkeye are now available to stream on Disney+.
