The lead writer at Marvel’s Hawkeye discussed some of the ways in which the Disney + series will include recall to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. The audience learned in the opening minutes of Avengers: Endgame that Clint Barton’s family was dusted off in the event known as Blip, when Thanos used the Infinity Stones to wipe out half of all life in the universe. The Avengers successfully resurrected everyone, meaning that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye could finally retire from superhero life. Enter Kate Bishop, who joins forces with her idol for a new adventure. Cast and crew on Hawkeye attended a red carpet premiere in which showrunner Jonathan Igla was asked how they planned to handle these MCU recalls.
“It was a constant balancing act,” Igla told Variety. “It was in a way from case to case. If anything was good enough and worth calling back and felt it would resonate with the show, and not just something I would enjoy as a fan to call back and revisit that led the one across the line. “

“We want the show to be accessible to new fans and also to reward the longtime fans. It’s a difficult balance, especially as the universe expands and expands,” Igla added. These are wise statements and reinforce Marvel Studios’ dedication to carefully scripting every step of this cinematic universe. Other franchises have run into roadblocks in an attempt to rush into a cinematic universe before focusing on individual stories. Hopefully, Hawkeye will drop the recalls at just the perfect times while driving.
As for recall, there are a number of options. We know Florence Pugh’s Black widow The character Yelena Belova will pay Hawkeye a visit in the belief that he is responsible for her sister’s death in Avengers: Endgame. Viewers will also find out more details about Hawkeye’s transition to street vigilante Ronin during the five-year time jump in Playoffs. We can also find out that Kate Bishop and her family have connections to other parts of MCU. The possibilities are endless.
Hailee Steinfeld knew she would get along with Florence Pugh from the start. “Oh, one hundred percent. I honestly felt that right away. And I hope by god she would say the same thing. Geez. Now that I say it, I’m like, ‘I knew it right from the start!’ And what if she was like, ‘this girl?’ No, I think we just had the same energy, “Steinfeld told Cosmopolitan. “We had a moment together where we shot and something went wrong. It was not possible to get over it. I started laughing so hard that someone thought I was crying – I do not know what it says about my laugh – and I can just remember a stream of people rushing in and saying, ‘Is everyone okay?’ “I’m literally lying face down on the ground and just laughing hysterically. Remember we were in a scene that in no way, shape or form was meant to be funny at all. We really had a wonderful time together.”
