When the post-credits scenes trend started again, it became a classic touch of Marvel putting mid-credits and end-credits which is one of the most creative ways that the MCU has introduced back to the film industry, even for the series or television shows. For Hawkeye, it is a bit uncanny and weird but it works, right? Here is what happened.
Post-Credits Scene of Hawkeye Season 1 Finale Explained
In the first episode of Hawkeye, it showed how Clint Barton is finally enjoying the holidays with his kids and they even went to see Rogers: The Musical. In the middle of the show, Clint remembers Nat through the character he was watching. He even had to turn his hearing aid off to look back on the heroism of his former partner, his late best friend, who gave up her life just to have everyone back.
Rogers: The Musical is a theater show in the first episode of Hawkeye that shows a retell of the events of the Battle of New York when the Chitauri army attacked Earth under the command of Loki. The show aims to commemorate the heroism of Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America and it presupposes something of a tribute to him and what he has done for the world.

The stage play highlighted each of the heroes that was there. However, there was one hero in the show that wasn’t there in the first place: Ant-Man. The original Avengers were just six and, in the play, there were seven. Even Clint Barton knew that there was a flaw in the story as he pointed out that Ant-Man wasn’t there in the battle.
It made a comeback in the post-credits scene of Hawkeye and Marvel greets a happy holiday to all. The actor is singing about something strange happening in the air and they were narrating the events of the Battle of New York and how the Avengers first assembled. It was a fun song number and people would’ve really watched it in theaters if it was real.
