with the multidimensional madness of bottle gourd And what if… ? In our rearview mirror, it’s time for the Avenger to take center stage Marvel Cinematic Universe, NS first two episodes NS Hawkeye Beat Disney Plus On Wednesday, whispers us on a New York City adventure with a pair of exceptionally capable archers.

in the middle of the holiday season after the events of avengers: endgame and the return of billions who have disappeared after a five-year absence, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) suffers the emotional consequences of losing his best bud Kali Mai, Little does he know that he is about to find a new ally in Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), even if the beginning of their relationship is rocky.

Let’s follow their arrows straight pervert Area.


got them, bro

Kate and Clint form a possible partnership as Clint tries to fix his ronin gear, but the second episode is captured by the tracksuit mafia. The goons happily bring the news of their success to their mysterious boss Maya Lopez, aka Echo (Alaqua Cox), as she lives in a room full of speakers.

Echo in Hockey (Alley with Bikes)

Echo makes her MCU debut in this episode.

“We have … they both. We have them both,” his goon says in a deliberate manner, before casually dismissing him.

Daredevil 10 (Echo Cover)

Echo has been in comics since 1999. Daredevil #10 is her second appearance, and she looks gorgeous on the cover.

The scene subtly hints at Maya’s deafness—she touches the speakers to feel the vibrations—but she has an ability that allows her to accompany anyone in the MCU.

In the comics, she has “photographic reflexes”—meaning she can completely imitate another person’s movements (a bit like the Taskmaster, who Appeared in Black Widow) In his first appearance Back in 1999, she became a concert-level pianist by watching someone play and gained terrific martial arts and acrobatic skills by watching recordings of fights.

Despite his appearance as a villain here, he is unlikely to remain a villain. she is getting it Apna Disney Plus Show Sometime in the Future, and his comics counterpart started out as Daredevil villains and became members of the Avengers.

He may also hint at another villain in the comics history shadow – a character fan. netflix marvel shows will be familiar with.

A big boss?

The events of these episodes were set in motion as Clint’s dark times. criminal-murderer watchdog roninWhich we saw in Endgame. After Snape of Thanos takes his family, he begins a harrowing campaign of bloody justice against the escaped criminal gangs.

We previously only knew of his killing bad guys in Mexico and Japan, but these episodes suggest that New York City criminals also fell on his sword. At an underworld auction of illegally obtained items, Ronin’s dress and sword go under the hammer and the auctioneer mentions how the vigilante eroded “the position and power of the head of organized crime” in the city.

We don’t learn who this person is, and a group of hardcore New York City crime bosses in Marvel history, but the most iconic and terrifying was set in a show on another streaming service. Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin, took the city in its iron grip Netflix’s Daredevil went through three seasons and had an absolutely brilliant, terrifying villain.


There’s only one place for a kingpin of crime in Marvel’s New York City. Wilson Fisk is expected to return to Hawkeye.

When we last saw Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) at the end of Daredevil’s third season — who Snap. happened before – He was sent back to jail. However, he managed to keep his criminal empire behind bars earlier, and he could easily have escaped (assuming he survived) into the chaos after Snape.

D’Onofrio too expressed his enthusiasm for Hawkeye a week before the show hits Disney Plus.

The actor wrote, “This is going to be fun. I love this @Marvel series.”

How suspicious. However, it is possible that I am barking up the wrong tree.

Echo Comics also has Fisk’s adopted daughter – she raised the little girl after her father was murdered. Fisk’s deception is discovered after Daredevil sends her on, and she turns on the crime lord.

Netflix Shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher and Defenders) ran from 2015 to 2019, and everything apparently happened in the MCU. However, as time went on, their importance waned – the shows referenced each other and some MCU film events, but the characters did not enter the movies as many fans had hoped.

Earlier this year, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told The Hollywood Reporter that “everything is on board” in terms of Netflix series characters reappearing, and he acknowledged “the great characters and actors in those shows”.

reports have suggested He charlie cox Will reprise his role as Daredevil (presumably in his civilian identity as Matt Murdock) Spider-Man: No Way Home, but he is being shy about it,

Eleanor Bishop and Jack Duquesne in Hawkeye

Eleanor Bishop and Jack Duquesne look drab, but she’s so beautiful.

sneaky swordsman

Judging by his appearance at the Underworld auction, his deceit about his skill with the sword, and hints that he killed Armand III, Jack Duquesne (Tony Dalton) is clearly up to no good. It is likely that he is teaming up with Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) to gain access to the resources of Bishop Protection. We got an idea of ​​the company’s technology when Kate easily tracked down Clint’s phone so that Jack could use it for criminal activities.

Duquesne’s comics counterpart – Jacques Duquesne – goes by the name Swordsman and trains a young Clint in the use of the blade. If the same is true in the MCU, it’s likely that she recognized Clint as Ronin from footage of her getaway and will show her in the face of our hero when they meet (especially since he has Clint’s fancy Ronin sword) ).

In the comics version, he started out as the villain, even infiltrating the Avengers while working for Mandarin. However, he preferred the life of a hero to the life of a criminal. It is not clear in which direction the character of the MCU will go.

Hawkeye from Fraction Run

This is probably the most famous panel of Matt Fraction and David Aza’s Hawkeye Run, and gives you a good sense of the vocals.
