After weeks of hypothesis, probably the most in style fan theories surrounding Hawkeye was confirmed to be true when it was revealed within the finale that the mysterious watch Clint Barton had been looking for did in truth belong to his spouse Laura, also referred to as retired S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Agent 19.
While that’s about so far as it goes by way of canonicity, followers are already daydreaming about Linda Cardellini’s Bobbi Morse being given a brand new identification by Nick Fury and constructing a brand new life along with her husband and their youngsters, free from all of the hazard that comes with being an professional in covert espionage.
Sure, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. followers aren’t joyful that Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird has been swept beneath the rug, in one other instance of the popular show being tossed onto the scrapheap of continuity. Cardellini’s complete contributions to Hawkeye had been largely diminished to ‘wife on the phone’, however in an interview with Marvel, director Rhys Thomas admitted he needs to see rather more from the actress sooner or later.
“We’ve seen her over these years as his wife, and there was obviously a desire [to expand her backstory]. We should know more about her. There’s more to her than just staying at home with the kids. It was a fun little thing to tease out over the season and again a nice little payoff that hopefully promises more of a character planted at the end.”
Should Hawkeye return for a second season, then throwing Cardellini into the deep finish and truly giving Laura Barton one thing to do aside from fear about her husband would go down a deal with with audiences, and justify the long-running watch subplot with a extra substantial consequence.
