The Marvels, an upcoming addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), promises to forge intriguing ties with the popular Hawkeye series, according to producer Mary Livanos. Fans have been eager to know how both projects will intersect, and Livanos has offered some insights on how the two storylines converge.
One significant aspect shared by The Marvels and Hawkeye is the central theme of legacy, and newer generations taking on the mantle of their predecessors. Hawkeye sees Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton working alongside Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, who ultimately takes on the Hawkeye codename. The Marvels, a sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel, focuses on Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers teaming up with Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel.
Producer Mary Livanos shared her thoughts on the links between The Marvels and Hawkeye during a set visit to the latter series. She stated, “I think that there is something very legacy-based to Hawkeye, and… the associations that surround that character, and perhaps a passing of a baton,” referring to the transition from Renner’s Barton to Steinfeld’s Bishop.
Livanos promises an unforgettable superhero moment for Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau in The Marvels, hinting at a “very, very cool… superhero partnership” involving the powerful character. Monica Rambeau’s journey and her connections with the other characters are indeed significant aspects of The Marvels.
In essence, The Marvels and Hawkeye are set to explore the legacy and future of the MCU. With the new generation of heroes stepping up, fans can expect these interconnected storylines to create an exciting and dynamic cinematic experience.
