Hawkeye — the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequence at Disney+ Hotstar — has reportedly added six new solid members: Black Widow‘s Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova who was educated simply as her sister-figure Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Vera Farmiga as Kate Bishop’s (Hailee Steinfeld) mom Eleanor Bishop, Fra Fee because the mercenary villain Kazi / Kazimierz Kazimierczak / Crown, Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne / Swordsman who’s a Hawkeye mentor / villain, newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez / Echo who can copy anybody’s actions, and Zahn McClarnon as Maya’s father William Lopez.
Variety brings phrase of the six new additions to the Hawkeye sequence solid. Neither Disney nor Marvel Studios have commented, which is not shocking given they’ve but to verify even Steinfeld’s presence within the lead. Steinfeld herself has been mum on her inclusion, going thus far to disclaim that it wasn’t “something that’s necessarily happening” however that was put to relaxation earlier this week after leaked set pictures confirmed her in character alongside Jeremy Renner, who performs the unique Hawkeye, Clint Barton. In the Disney+ sequence, Renner’s Clint is anticipated handy over the reins to Steinfeld’s Kate, simply as Johansson’s Natasha will do with Pugh’s Yelena on Black Widow.
That would clarify Pugh’s involvement within the Hawkeye sequence, although it is simply hypothesis on our half, and there may very well be one million different explanation why she’s concerned. What it does affirm is that Marvel Studios has already begun charting the way forward for Yelena Belova within the MCU, that includes crossing over from movies to sequence. That’s a typical factor going into Phase four of the MCU. Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, subsequent seen in WandaVision premiering January 15 on Disney+ Hotstar, can even be a part of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, set for March 2022 in theatres.
WandaVision and Hawkeye are two of eight confirmed MCU sequence, alongside the Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan-led The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Tom Hiddleston-starrer Loki, the non-canonical animated Marvel’s What If…?, and Ms. Marvel with Iman Vellani (all for 2021), Moon Knight with Oscar Isaac within the lead probably, and Tatiana Maslany-led She-Hulk (for 2022). A ninth sequence, with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, is claimed to be within the works.
Hawkeye is anticipated to air in late 2021 / early 2022 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar.
