Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige sees the future of Marvel Studios having more closed captions.

At a press conference for the upcoming “Hawkeye” show, actor Jeremy Renner said his character, Clint Barton, has hearing issues as a result of the battles seen in “Avengers: Endgame.” Because of that, he wears a hearing aid and needs to communicate through sign language in some moments.

  • This draws comparisons to Marvel’s recent film, “Eternals,” where Makkari (Lauren Ridloff) cannot speak so she communicates through sign language.
  • For the film, multiple theaters released open caption screenings so people with hearing disabilities can watch the movie.

Ridloff, a deaf actress, told Business Insider that she was thrilled by the change and hoped to see it implemented elsewhere.

  • “It is a step forward,” Ridloff said of the changes, according to Business Insider. “I don’t think that we’re there yet, but I would love to see captioning and subtitles really become the norm. I think that subtitles benefit everyone: deaf, hard of hearing, hearing.”

Feige, the producer of the upcoming “Hawkeye” series, said he thinks Marvel will start releasing more projects with closed captioning as the studio did with “Eternals.”

  • “I think the way ‘Eternals’ was released is only the beginning,” Feige said.
