Marvel Releases New Hawkeye Posters for Mysterious Characters

Hawkeye is inching closer to a big reveal in its final two episodes, with many questions set to be answered. The Jeremy Renner-led series tells the story of Clint Barton's struggle with his assumption of the Ronin identity during the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War, which suddenly reemerged due to Kate Bishop's arrival. The Disney+ show also introduced new MCU characters such as Alaqua Cox's Echo, Vera Farmiga's Eleanor Bishop, and Tony Dalton's Jack Duquesne. 

One of the mysteries surrounding Hawkeye is the secrets that both Eleanor and Jack are hiding from Kate. In the first four episodes, it was heavily teased that the pair are involved in some shady arrangements.

Despite that, Kate's continued investigations of Jack have led to a dead end so far. In addition, the young archer is also unaware of her mother's potential villainous path

As Hawkeye enters its final stretch, the show seems poised to finally reveal what's really going on in the Bishop household. Meanwhile, in celebration of Eleanor and Jack's MCU arrivals, two new posters have been unveiled. 

Hawkeye Unveils Posters for Kate Bishop's Parents

Marvel Studios officially released two new posters for Hawkeye, showcasing a stunning look at Vera Farmiga's Eleanor Bishop and Tony Dalton's Jack Duquesne.

The timing of the release of Eleanor and Jack's character posters could suggest that their secrets will finally be unveiled during the upcoming fifth episode. 

It was previously reported that Hawkeye Episode 5 could blow up Twitter, and there's a chance that a reveal involving Eleanor and Jack could contribute to that claim. It's possible that Eleanor's villainous intentions could be unraveled, meaning that she could actually be the real foe pulling the strings from behind and not Jack. 

It's also worth pointing out that Eleanor has a shady background in the pages of Marvel Comics due to her connections with Madame Masque. The Direct previously shared in an exclusive that the MCU's Madame Masque would appear in Hawkeye, but it's unknown how she will fit into the show's complicated narrative. 

Marvel Studios has a long history of adjusting comic book stories to fit its live-action universe, meaning that it's likely that Eleanor could end up becoming Madame Masque in the show. This reveal would be heartbreaking for Kate and troublesome for Clint since Eleanor will be added to the already-stacked villainous lineup of Hawkeye which includes Echo, Kazi, the Tracksuit Mafia, Yelena Belova, and the mysterious uncle, who is heavily rumored to be Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk. 

Hawkeye Episode 4 also provided more evidence that Eleanor is a villain. It's not a coincidence that her mysterious phone call led to Yelena's arrival in the episode, suggesting that she has ties to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Val. 

As for Jack, there's a strong chance that his villain-related tease is a red herring. In the comics, Jack is the supervillain Swordsman, but it's also worth noting that he is also an Avenger for a brief amount of time. 

Many would agree that Jack is an unpredictable character. For this reason, it's likely that he will be the one to save Kate from her mother when the time comes, thus surprising the young Avenger and viewers in the process. 

The first four episodes of Hawkeye are now streaming on Disney+.
