For those who don’t know, Bishop is a popular hero in her own right and a talented archer. In the comics, she leads the Young Avengers, which includes Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie. She takes over the hero name, Hawkeye, and is widely regarded as a favorite among Marvel fans. There has been no word on casting however many Avengers fans have speculated 13 Reasons Why star, Katherine Langford, is playing the character in the upcoming film.

Not to mention, Clint Barton has been seen wearing a costume in the Avengers: Endgame trailer which looks more like the one he wears during his time as “Ronin” rather than Hawkeye. It would make sense if he has finished with his original moniker to pass it along to a new generation.

Cassie Lang is also rumored to be aged up for the next Avengers film which does hint that Marvel is interested in forming the Young Avengers team from the comics.
