An Avengers: Endgame trailer scene that includes Hawkeye and his daughter evokes hypothesis she could also be Kate Bishop – however we hope that is not the case. Jeremy Renner joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Clint Barton aka. Hawkeye in 2011’s Thor and united with the remainder of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for The Avengers. Although Renner hasn’t starred in his personal solo film, Hawkeye is beloved by many MCU followers. Nevertheless, arguably probably the most divisive facet of Hawkeye’s portrayal within the MCU is his secret household launched in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Within the movie, the Avengers take refuge at Barton’s farmhouse, the place the superheroes meet his household: his spouse Laura, sons Cooper and Nathaniel, and daughter Lila.
Hawkeye’s household hasn’t been seen since Age of Ultron, however they have been a key facet of Clint’s motivation all through the following motion pictures. In Captain America: Civil Struggle, Clint was known as away from them for the battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), for which he was ultimately imprisoned within the Raft. Whereas Hawkeye did not seem in Avengers: Infinity Struggle, it was defined within the film that he struck a deal so he may very well be together with his household.

Followers have lengthy needed Kate Bishop to be launched to the MCU, and have speculated Katherine Langford could play the guy Hawkeye in Avengers: Endgame for the reason that actress’s precise function hasn’t been confirmed but. Nevertheless, now hypothesis has turned to Lila Barton doubtlessly being the MCU’s Kate Bishop, however that will change fairly just a few issues concerning the character as established by the Marvel comics. Launched in 2005 as a member of the Younger Avengers, Kate Bishop was created by author Allan Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung as a legacy Hawkeye character – one who has no familial relationship to Clint Barton.
In reality, Kate will get the moniker of Hawkeye from Captain America within the Younger Avengers comics, and solely later meets Clint. In fact, Kate does practice below Clint, and her relationship with the elder Hawkeye is portrayed as one in every of mentor/mentee in Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye run. Nevertheless, Kate ultimately breaks off from Clint within the Hawkeye comics and goes on her personal journey in L.A. There, followers study that Kate comes from a effectively off household and her father is a villain who ultimately places out a success on his daughter and Clint. That is a really completely different story than what followers suppose Avengers: Endgame is establishing.
Due to the comics, Kate Bishop has gained a devoted fan following and it is comprehensible they might wish to see the character launched within the MCU. Nevertheless, altering Kate’s comedian e book backstory and tying it on to Clint Barton isn’t solely a low-cost trick to get informal followers on board with the character, it additionally erases Kate’s id impartial from Clint and ties her to the older Hawkeye unequivocally. Additional, since Clint’s daughter within the MCU is called Lila, Marvel Studios would even be altering Kate’s full title as a way to adapt the character. In fact, since Lila had such a minor function in Age of Ultron, it would not be shocking for Marvel to retcon Clint’s daughter’s title to be Kate in the event that they actually have been adapting Kate Bishop to the MCU on this method.
However the truth stays, the Avengers: Endgame trailer could not be establishing Clint’s daughter as Kate Bishop. Definitely, Clint instructing her archery has tones of the mentor/mentee relationship between Clint and Kate within the Hawkeye comics, however that is not proof. And, contemplating how a lot Marvel must change Kate’s character – which is inherently not tied to Clint and is arguably beloved as a result of she’s a hero impartial to Clint, regardless of sharing the Hawkeye moniker – it could be higher if that is not Kate Bishop within the Avengers: Endgame trailer.
