The Upcoming Cast of the Hawkeye TV series
Hawkeye will introduce some new characters and of course, we will once again see our beloved hero and former Avenger Clint Barton wielding his archer. Here are the names of the cast who will appear in the upcoming tv series including Jeremy Renner (as Clint Barton / Hawkeye), Hailee Steinfeld (as Kate Bishop / Hawkeye), Vera Farmiga (as Eleanor Bishop and Kate’s mother), Fra Fee (as Kazi), Tony Dalton (as Jack Duquesne), Zahn McClarnon (as William Lopez), Alaqua Cox (as Maya Lopez / Echo), and Florence Pugh (as Yelena Belova / Black Widow).
The other cast members also include Ava Russo (as Lila), Ben Sakamoto (as Cooper), and Cade Woodward (as Nathaniel) will be reprising their roles.
As per reports by Variety, the Hawkeye series will mainly focus on Clint Barton and his next successor, Kate Bishop. The tv series is interpreted as an “adventure series” as Clint will “pass the torch to Kate Bishop.”
Hawkeye is also foreseen to explore Clint’s duration as the bloodthirsty anti-hero Ronin during the five years in the Avengers: Endgame when his family disappeared with the snap.
According to speculations, Hawkeye will likely lose his hearing, which preps the entrance of Clown, a villain who injured Clint with many arrows and eternally harmed his eardrums. Variety also reported that a new character, Kazi will emerge in the series, giving credence to Clown as one of the series major villains.
