If you'd been following Marvel's Phase 4 closely, you'd been binging on movies and shows like us! The latest series that aired was Hawkeye starring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye/Clint Barton and Fil-Am Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop. The tie-in film to the series is Black Widow where Florence Pugh's character Yelena returns in a hunt for Hawkeye.
Yssa Mei Panganiban appears on Episode 5 of Hawkeye and plays another Black Widow. She accompanies Yelena on a rescue mission as they try to save widows who have been brainwashed. It's a quick scene but more than the cool stunts and fights she got to do, Panganiban explains it's the representation on-screen that matters most.
In an interview with The Illuminerdi, she talked about what it was like working with Florence Pugh and where else she'd like to see Sonya pop-in within the Marvel universe. Panganiban votes for Shang-Chi since her widow training would fit right in with the martial arts. We think it's a perfect match!
Marvel has added a lot more diversity in their projects and we're seeing more and more Filipinos on the roster. In the MCU alone, there's Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Mary Rivera as Ned’s Lola, and Ayla Perez as the diplomat/pilot in Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
“Oh, It feels like a blessing, really. I like to say that we’re in a Renaissance right now for, um, AAPI representation, but particularly Filipina representation. I mean, it’s evident in the Marvel universe, the Marvel Cinematic Universe right now. We're really making our way in and to be one of the people that's kind of spearheading that it feels really, really, really good. - Yssa Mei Panganiban

The best gifts during the holiday season usually come with a bow. In this case, a bow and arrow. Before stepping out for the MET Gala, Hailee Steinfeld stepped out as Kate Bishop in the first look of Marvel Studios' Hawkeye. A Disney+ original series following suit of record-breaking shows like WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye is sure to hit its target.
In the trailer, Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye aka Ronin) is on the run and teams up with Kate Bishop just as all of Barton's enemies are in New York to stop him from enjoying a happy Christmas family reunion. Hailee Steinfeld’s new character, Kate Bishop is an eager and talented archer who looks to get some tips from the OG Avenger himself, Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton. Count on an action packed series with sprinkles of comedy... "There are more arrows dangerous than that one?"
The 8-episode series follows Clint training Kate to take over the mantle of Hawkeye. Could this be another hint to the Young Avengers and a larger future for Hailee in the MCU? Hawkeye also stars Florence Pugh (Black Widow) as Yelena Belova who's mission is to track down Clint Barton, laqua Cox as Maya Lopez (aka Echo), a young Deaf woman who can mimic people’s movements, and Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Kate Bishop’s mother.
Hawkeye premieres on Disney+ November 24th kicking off the best of time of year!
