One of the promises kept by Hawkeye was to bring back Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, played once again by the excellent Vincent D’Onofrio .


In the series it was discovered that he was the one who pulled the strings of the Tracksuit Mafia and he was always the occult partner of Eleanor Bishop ( Vera Farmiga ), the mother of Kate Bishop. Eleanor, we are told at one point, has started working for Kingpin to pay off the debt left by her husband.

Now, a deleted scene shows us the first meeting between the two, immediately after the battle of New York that introduced the world to the Avengers, and which was the starting point of the plots of Daredevil (which, however, could have taken place in another of the countless realities of the Marvel multiverse). Here is the scene …

The Hawkeye synopsis

In a Christmas New York, Clint Barton, better known as Hawkeye, passes the baton (or in this case the bow) to a new generation. Specifically, Kate Bishop, a young warrior who has spent her life trying to look like her hero.

The cast

The cast includes Jeremy Renner ( Clint Barton ), Hailee Steinfeld ( Kate Bishop ), Florence Pugh ( Yelena Belova ), Vera Farmiga ( Eleanor Bishop ), Tony Dalton ( Jack Duquesne / Swordsman ), Alaqua Cox ( Maya Lopez / Echo ), Zahn McClarnon ( William Lopez ) and Fra Fee ( Kazimierz Kazimierczak / Clown ).

Clint Barton’s pupil

The show will introduce Kate Bishop . Created in 2005 by Allan Heinberg (texts) and Jim Cheung (drawings) on Young Avengers n. 1 , the young Kate inherits the name of Hawkeye in the period in which the latter is believed dead. In the series, we can assume that Kate will become Clint Barton’s “protégé” , who will train her in combat and archery.

The screenwriter

The screenplay for the series is the work of Jonathan Igla , best known for Mad Men .
