Variety is exclusively reporting that Vera Farmiga, Tony Dalton, Florence Pugh, Fra Fee, Alaqua Fox and Zahn McClarnon are the latest names to join the cast for the upcoming Marvel/Disney+ series Hawkeye.
The series will explore Clint Barton’s time as Ronin after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, whilst also being a mentor to Kate Bishop, who in the comics takes up the mantle of Hawkeye as well.
Vera Farmiga (whose recent credits include Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Annabelle Comes Home) will be playing the role of Kate Bishop’s mother, Eleanor Bishop. Tony Dalton (whose recent credits include Better Call Saul and Amalgama) will be playing the role of Jack Duquesne, believed it to be Swordsman from the comics and early mentor to Hawkeye. Florence Pugh (whose recent credits include Midsommar and Little Women) will be reprising the role of Yelena Belova, spy and Black Widow’s sister.
Fra Fee (whose recent credits includes Animals and Pixie) will be playing the role of Kazi, most likely based on Marvel comics mercenary villain Kazimierz Kazimierczak aka Clown. Newcomer Alaqua Cox will be making her acting debut as Maya Lopez aka Echo, a deaf Native American who is capable of perfectly copying another person’s movements, making her a formidable fighter. Also worth mentioning in the comics, Lopez also donned the Ronin persona too. Zahn McClarnon (whose recent credits include Doctor Sleep and The Silencing) will be playing the role of Maya’s father Willie ‘Crazy Horse’ Lincoln.
Jonathan Igla is writing and executive producing the series, which has begun production in Atlanta and New York, with some images and videos confirming that Hailee Steinfeld is starring opposite Jeremy Renner as Kate Bishop.
