If you were on social media at any point yesterday, then you’re well-aware that production for the Disney+ series Hawkeye is underway. Images were shown of Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop heading down into a subway tunnel with a dog! Is that Lucky the Pizza Dog?!
With those images out and about, casting news is the next order of business.
According to Variety, who first reported the news, Hawkeye has added six new cast members. Florence Pugh, who we’ll see in Black Widow whenever that comes out, will reprise her role as Yelena Belova in the series. Horror fans will recognize Vera Farmiga, who plays Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring franchise, as Kate’s mother Eleanor Bishop.
Also joining the cast are Fra Fee (Les Miserables), Tony Dalton (Better Calls Saul), Zahn McClarnon (Longmire), and newcomer Alaqua Cox.
Fee is set to play a character called Kazi, which could be short for Kazimierz Kazimierczak, which Marvel Comics fan will recognize as a mercenary known as Clown. Awesome. What we need are more clowns to scare us.
Dalton’s character is Jack Duquesne, which is probably a play on Jacques Duquesne aka Swordsman, who trained Clint Barton in the circus. This character has been both a villain and hero over the years in comics.
McClarnon will play William Lopez, who is the father of Cox’s character Maya Lopez. Fans would recognize Maya Lopez as Echo, who in Marvel Comics is a deaf Native American that can perfectly copy another person’s movements making her a formidable fighter.
Nothing, however, has been confirmed by Disney or Marvel.
Hawkeye currently does not have a release date.
