Last Hawkeye Appearance
When we last saw Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) was during the events of Avengers Infinity War and Engame. During the snap, clint list his entire family. That drove him to become Ronin, a dangerous alter ego that killed criminals. However, Natasha Romanoff was able to appeal to him and bring him back in time to fight alongside the Avengers in Endgame.
Where The show will take Hawkeye
The show introduces us to Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) who is self proclaimed world’s greatest archer. She crosses paths with Barton’s Hawkeye and he will train her to become the next Hawkeye after leaving the Avengers behind him. Of course, during the course of the show, he will prepare her to take his place alongside the Avengers. Rumor has it, way see an appearance by Vincent D’onofrio’s Kingpin.
Who is Kate Bishop?
Kate Bishop is born into a wealthy Manhattanite family. Her mother was distant and her father, whom she idolized was involved in some nefarious dealings. According to the comics, Kate Bishop admired Hawkeye because he didn’t have super powers. Instead, he honed skill in archery and that made him a superhero. Kate wanted to be as good as he was.
When they meet in the comics, she is recruited as a partner and they take on street-level crime-fighting in Brooklyn. At one point, Kate helped Clint track down and rescue a girl who had been kidnapped and they has to evade a mob chase retaliation (Marvel.Fandom). This storyline may be what they base the show on as it is low key and allows them to work together and for Hawkeye to train her as his successor.
