With Hawk Eye Arriving on November 24, Marvel fans don’t have much time to catch up on all the movies and shows that might prove relevant to Clint Barton’s latest predicament. The Disney + series will see his actions as Ronin in Avengers: Endgame coming back to haunt him in a big way. He has drawn the wrath of a few mafia bosses, and he will have to deal with it before returning to his family for Christmas.
Fortunately, he will have Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) by his side. Another skilled archer, Kate promises to take Hawkeye’s mantle when he’s done with the Avengers. She will also help him face his demons, although the archer prefers to go it alone.
And preparing for Hawk Eye to arrive, fans may want to familiarize themselves with the character and his background. The best place to start is probably Avengers: Endgame.
‘Avengers: Endgame’ will have a huge impact on ‘Hawkeye’

The events of Avengers: Endgame are likely to hover over Marvel Hawk Eye, with the show exploring the aftermath of Clint’s actions in the film. After the Blip, Clint began to take revenge on those who survived in place of his family – namely, those with a criminal history who “didn’t deserve” to exist if his wife and children didn’t. .
Of course, a lot of the people Clint chased were thugs and gang members. Their colleagues will try to avenge them in the Disney + series, and by seeing again Avengers: Endgame will remind viewers why they want Clint dead.
And that’s not the only reason Avengers: Endgame is likely to play an important role in Hawk Eye. Marvel fans haven’t had a chance to catch up with Clint since the untimely death of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) at the end of Phase 3. However, he’s probably still in mourning – as is Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh ). With Pugh confirmed for the cast of Hawk Eye, it’s safe to say that Natasha’s ending will play an equally important role in the series.
‘Black Widow’ teases what’s to come in the Marvel show

If Pugh’s casting didn’t prove it Black Widow would be important to Marvel Hawk Eye, the end credits scene certainly did. After Natasha and Yelena mend their relationship throughout the film, the final scene passes after Natasha dies. When Yelena visits her grave, she receives a proposal from Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
Valentina wants Yelena to kill Clint, and she offers him a compelling reason to do so. Telling Yelena that Clint is the reason her sister died, she tells the perfect story to make sure Yelena does as she is told. And Natasha’s sister is likely to join the many gangsters after Clint’s head in Marvel’s Hawk Eye.
For this reason, fans will want to donate Black Widow a watch before the show. Not only does this provide context for what Yelena will be doing, but it gives fans a better look at her character.
‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ shows what Clint has to lose

Avengers: Age of Ultron may be the least liked Avengers movie, but it does offer a deeper look at Clint’s character than the first Avengers. That’s because the team finally meets his family – a secret he has kept until now.
And watching Clint interact with his wife and kids will help viewers understand what he has to lose in the upcoming Disney + series. To be invested in a character’s story, fans need to find a way to root for them. Clint’s love for his family will give them that – and Age of Ultron is a perfect reminder of this.
