Will Hawkeye Have Vampires?
It’s almost certainly not going to play into the show, but it’s strongly implied that Eleanor survived because she was made into a vampire by a west coast vampire cult, the Temple of the Shifting Sun. Kate’s gang of reality TV star Avengers – including reformed ex-teen fascist Quentin Quire, self-aware reality hopper Gwenpool, Young Avenger alum America Chavez, badass in a vibranium suit Alloy, and Alloy’s brother Fuse (a cooler, younger version of Absorbing Man, basically) – infiltrates a cult meeting where the Temple of the Shifting Sun is trying to use America Chavez to give them the ability to walk during the day. While there, Eleanor and Kate reconnected, she admitted to trying to use Masque to get back at her ex-husband, and Kate called her on the contradictions in her story (Derek was also working with Masque at the time).
This will almost CERTAINLY not be the case in the show. Most MCU media is following one of two tracks. On one track, you have Loki and What If? dealing with multiversal nonsense. On the other, you have shows like WandaVision and The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, working towards an inevitable Young Avengers climax. There is cross-pollination between the two streams, but not enough to justify throwing Blade seeds into a show that’s already stuffed half with story from the Matt Fraction/David Aja seminal Hawkeye run, half with Kelly Thompson’s wonderful work with Kate Bishop. But anything is possible, so maybe those Tracksuit Draculas will be real actual vampires, as well.
Marvel’s Hawkeye premieres on Disney+ on Nov. 24.
