The future of Marvel’s Hawkeye has been in question lately after it was rumored the series was delayed. Thankfully, that was denied by Disney, and it seems fans may have some more good news. According to MCU Cosmic, the show will introduce both Trickshot and the Tracksuit Mafia.
Created by Roy Thomas and Gene Colan, Barney Barton, aka Trickshot, was first introduced in 1969’s Avengers #64 as the older brother of Clint Barton. Barney took a different path than Hawkeye and joined the army, ultimately becoming an FBI agent. He eventually went on to join the Dark Avengers and since then has served as an anti-hero.
Meanwhile, the Tracksuit Mafia first appeared in Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye #1. Dubbed by Clint as the Tracksuit Draculas, the group is a criminal organization that worked in New York City. They served as antagonists for much of Fraction’s run and will most likely serve as secondary villains on the Disney+ series.
It’s exciting that fans are finally learning more about Hawkeye. Until now, much of the series was in question with the only known information being that Kate Bishop and Pizza Dog would appear in the show. Jeremy Renner will reprise his role as Clint Barton, but no other casting has been announced. Hopefully, the studio will reveal more about the series, such as who will portray Kate Bishop and Trickshot soon.
