Whenever Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye appears in Avengers: Infinity War or any of its promotional materials, the Marvel hero will look a bit different from his previous appearances.

"It's Nashville, so everyone’s in a different bubble," Stephen McFeely said. "Some bubbles come together and break apart, some bubbles come together for the third act. That kind of stuff."
The directorial duo Anthony and Joe Russo, however, offered a bit more insight about the character.
"Hawkeye coming out of Civil War is in the same position that the Cap and Falcon are in at the end of that movie," Joe Russo said. "And Ant Man. And coming into this movie, the characters who are on Cap's side coming out of Civil War, some made certain decisions and others made other decisions that led to different paths and them dealing with oversight in this movie in a different way. So, Hawkeye's on his own journey in this movie."6comments
