Now that the first three shows of the MCU have landed on Disney+, the next series we are eyeing is Hawkeye. Fans are on their toes to grab even the slightest hint that tells something about the plot. Recently, actor Jeremy Renner, popularly known as Clint Barton, revealed that the MCU version of Kate Bishop will be a big-time Hawkeye fangirl. It is her annoying yet pleasing fangirl attributes that will bring her closer to the uptight Clint Barton.
The series follows the release of other MCU Phase 4 projects, WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki. With Hawkeye slated to release this year on November 24, Jeremy Renner throws some light on the equation between his character, Clint Barton and his protege, Kate Bishop.
According to the comic books, Kate Bishop was the one who got to carry the mantle of Hawkeye. In the upcoming series, Hailee Steinfeld will portray the 22-year old fangirl of Hawkeye who aspires to become a fine archer someday. Renner shares that Kate’s admiration for his work drives her to Hawkeye. Though it starts on an annoying note, their relationship evolves into something deeper and stronger. Finding a friend in this partnership will help the Avenger alumni to cope up with the loss of Natasha Romanoff. However, this bond is not as simple as it sounds. It will bring its own share of complications for Barton to deal with.
Jeremy Renner Spills The Beans
During an interview recently held, Renner said that “[Kate is] a 22-year-old kid and she’s a big Hawkeye fan. She has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her because she’s such a fangirl of Hawkeye. The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems that she brings into his life.”
The series will also star Vera Farmiga, Alaqua Cox, Tony Dalton, and Fra Fee. Even Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova is expected to join the series as a follow up to the events of the post-credit scenes in Black Widow.
However, a lot is still left to be discovered. What characters some of these actors will play, how Hawkeye and Kate’s paths cross or how much screen-time Yelena Belova will have in the series is a mystery.
