After ‘Black Widow,’ We’re Pretty Sure Who Will Be Main Villain of ‘Hawkeye’

This story contains spoilers for Black Widow. Come back and read after you’ve watched.

Well folks, if you’re part of the longstanding tradition of making fun of Hawkeye for not being nearly as super-powered as his Avengers buddies, then today might be the day you double back on that one. After the end credits scene of Black Widow, we’re a hell of a lot more excited for the character’s upcoming solo series on Disney+.

After the credits roll on Black Widow, we fast-forward to present-day MCU (2023ish), where Black Widow’s sister, Yelena Belova (played by Florence Pugh) visits her grave. Julia Louis Dreyfus’s Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine suddenly shows up and tells her that Clint Barton, a.k.a Hawkeye, is actually the dude who killed Natasha Romanoff—not the universe-saving sacrifice we saw in Avengers: Infinity War. Now, the implication that Belova will hunt down Barton gives us a much better idea of what we can expect from Hawkeye. Here’s everything we know about the show so far.

When will Hawkeye debut and who will star in it?

According to Marvel, Hawkeye will debut on Disney+ in late 2021. The official cast so far includes Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfield, Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James, and Alaqua Cox. Check out what might be a glimpse of the opening credits, which Renner shared in 2019:

What can we expect from Hawkeye?

According to Variety‘s initial report about the show, it will be an “adventure series in which Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, will pass the torch to Kate Bishop.” In Hawkeye, Hailee Steinfeld will play Bishop, who takes up the mantle of Hawkeye after Barton dies in the comics. Steinfeld told Entertainment Tonight that Bishop will be formidable addition to the MCU’s always-growing roster of heroes.

“As I’m in the process of developing her, I’m working with some incredible filmmakers that are helping me bring her to life,” Steinfeld said. “I can’t wait for people just to see how we are interpreting this character through the comics. In her own sort of ways, she’s such a badass. There’s no denying that. She’s so smart and witty and quick, and her physical ability to do so many things is through the roof. It’s really tested me, and it’s kept me going through quarantine, I will say, it’s given me a reason to stay with it.”

So the first half of Hawkeye will likely focus on the budding mentor-protege relationship between Barton and Steinfeld, while also giving us an idea of what the Avengers archer has been up to since he helped save the world again. According to Variety, the series is also set to introduce Echo, a.k.a. Maya Lopez—a deaf Native American character who can mimic fighting styles. She’s also set to get her own Disney+ spinoff. That said, the second half of the season could introduce Lopez and see Belova enter the fray, leading into one big standoff where Bishop finally levels up into a master archer. Phew. Does the fighting ever end?
