The post-credits scene of Black Widow, set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, featured Yelena Belova as she visited Natasha Romanoff's grave and was tasked by Valentina Allegra de Fontaine to take down Clint Barton as she was led to believe that he is the reason behind the death of her sister. Fans believe that it sets up the events of the upcoming series Hawkeye. Now, its stars have shared their thoughts on the game-changing post-credits scene.
Per ComicBook.com, during the Hollywood premiere event of Hawkeye, stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld were asked by Variety about their thoughts on the post-credits scene of Black Widow. Renner said, "I was with my niece and she's like 'Uncle Jeremy, what did you do?' I didn't do anything!"
Meanwhile, Steinfeld responded, "My reaction was more like 'No way!' I never fail to get incredibly excited, I even geek out over...I mean, one thing in the MCU, with the delicately interwoven details throughout each and every film and TV show and piece and whatever. It's incredible. So I saw that and I was like 'That means something, I don't know what yet, but we're gonna find out.'"
It was reported last year that Florence Pugh will be reprising her role of Yelena Belova in Hawkeye and it looks she is going to have the long-awaited face-off with Renner's Clint Barton during the series. Fans are looking forward to seeing how they will resolve the conflict because we all know that Clint Barton is not the one to blame for Natasha Romanoff's death.
There is a lot of anticipation to the series as it will feature the MCU on-screen debut of Steinfeld's Kate Bishop, who has been a fan-favorite in the comics for the past several years. It will also be the first solo venture of Clint Barton in the MCU and an introduction to Alaqua Cox's Echo, who has her own spin-off series in the works.
Hawkeye is set to premiere with two episodes this coming November 24 on Disney+.
