Beyond its main plot, Hawkeye is being an unbeatable setting to meet again with Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) or Yelena (Florence Pugh), meet Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Echo (Alaqua Cox), and see again old acquaintances from Marvel comics.
Its fifth episode, the penultimate of the series, has brought with it the man behind the entire criminal plot around which the action revolves. In previous chapters, Clint feared the big shot that dominated Echo and the Tracksuits, and we’ve finally learned the identity of that person. The rumors have been confirmed since it is about Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio), the charismatic villain of Daredevil linked to the character of Maya, his adopted daughter in the comics.
In the last minutes of the fifth episode of Hawkeye, Yelena sends a message to Kate, in which she reveals that she has discovered who hired her : Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmina), mother of the aquera. He sends her a photo of this with a man, “the guy who worried me so much all this time,” says Renner’s character, referring to Wilson Fisk, whom we had not seen since the always vindicable third season of Daredevil.
Vincent D’Onofrio wanted to celebrate his return to Marvel and his entry into the MCU with the following message that he has launched on the networks:
“When I was a child”, he has written, along with an illustration from the series in which the upper part of his intimidating character stands out. Presumably, the last chapter of the series will reveal more details about the role of the villain not only in this plot (What does Echo’s ‘uncle’ have to do with Clint and Laura Barton?), But also in the future of the MCU. Let’s remember that Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock could join this prolific universe very soon, so a reunion with his worst nightmare would be very possible.
The Marvel series for Netflix brought with them some of the screen’s most beloved heroes, such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), but their success cannot be understood without their terrible baddies, as good or better than the protagonists. Both Kilgrave of David Tennant as the Kingpin of D’Onofrio, a lover of art stuck to their twins, are still two of the best villains adapted to the audiovisual.
