“The Barber” to be Main Villain of Hawkeye TV Show
The new character is set to antagonise everyone’s favourite archer
The internet has been set ablaze by the announcement of a Hawkeye show in development at Disney +. Little is known about the series, which will star Jeremy Renner, but recent plot leaks have given us some clues, including the identity of the main antagonist for the show.
“The Barber” is a new character that has been specifically invented for the show. It’s not been confirmed, but it is likely that The Barber will be revealed as the man who gave Clint Barton his infamous Avengers: Endgame haircut. Early reports indicate that the series will focus on Hawkeye’s revenge mission to find and kill the man responsible for the haircut.
It’s unclear how Hawkeye protegee Kate Bishop plays into this plot, but it certainly seems like this show will be a deep dive into Hawkeye’s psyche. Bishop is an incredibly popular comic-book character and it will be crucial for the show to get her characterization right, especially if she ends up taking on the mantle of Hawkeye in future Avengers movies.
The untitled Hawkeye series is currently in development, and is likely to premiere in 2020 on the Disney + streaming service
