Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Hawkeye," "Black Widow," and "Spider-Man: No Way Home"
The first season of "Hawkeye," starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld has been concluded.
Insider compiled all the questions we had after the explosive finale.
Who told the public all the Avengers' secrets for the creation of 'Rogers The Musical?'
The post-credit scene for the "Hawkeye" finale was an extended look at the "Rogers The Musical" performance we see in episode one. "Save the City" may be catchy but it highlights a big information breach if it wasn't the Avengers themselves that created it.
From an audience point of you, the lyrics make sense but how do civilians know that Captain America's catchphrase is "I can do this all day" or that Iron Man recommended shawarma at the Avengers battle.
The biggest question of all is: Why is Ant-Man there? Of course, after "Avengers: Endgame," we know that Scott went back in time to the Battle of New York but it is clear that the general public does not know about the time heist because Yelena still believes that Hawkeye killed Black Widow.
Did Echo kill Kingpin in the "Hawkeye" finale?
There was an intense moment in episode six where Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) finally confronts Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) in order to avenge her father's death. We hear a gunshot at the end of this confrontation but never see who was hit by the bullet.
The scene points to Kingpin being killed by Maya out of revenge, but there is a possibility the iconic villain may return.
Is this the same Kingpin from Netflix's "Daredevil?"
Whilst "Hawkeye" used the same actor for Kingpin as Netflix's "Daredevil," there are no clear signs that this is the same Kingpin as we saw in "Daredevil" or whether the Netflix show is canon.
The only clue is that D'Onofrio's costume in episode five and the beginning of episode six resembles what he wore in multiple episodes of "Daredevil."
Charlie Cox who also starred in the Netflix Marvel series reprised his role as the blind vigilante in "Spider-Man: No Way Home," which means we could get a confirmation in the future.
Why was Laura Barton's watch stolen?
The finale reveals that the Avengers Compound watch, which is stolen from the auction in episode one, belongs to Laura Barton. However, this still raises questions about why it was stolen in the first place and whether the watch indicates something in Laura's past.
For starters, did Maya know that the watch was owned by the wife of Ronin, the man she was hunting because he killed her father?
In episode four, Hawkeye explains to Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) that the watch "belongs to someone I used to work with." Does this mean Laura used to be a SHIELD agent as the watch had a SHIELD logo at the back? Was that how Hawkeye met Laura?
In "Hawkeye" Laura does show she's more than just a housewife by helping Hawkeye track down the owner of the Sloan company.
Finally, in the same episode, Kate also reveals that Maya now knows Hawkeye's family names because of the watch but never explains how their identity is attached to the watch. Whilst the watch added further reason for Hawkeye to stop Kingpin and his goons, it left too many loose threads. Hopefully, these threads will be explained if "Hawkeye" gets a second season.
We still don't know who owns Avengers Tower.
Hawkeye mentions that the tower has been bought by someone, however, Marvel Studios is yet to reveal who the buyer was.
Some theorized that the buyer could be Kingpin after his big reveal in episode five of "Hawkeye," but there was no reference to this in the finale. Another theory is that it could have been bought by The Fantastic Four, are confirmed to be coming to the MCU.
How did Kate Bishop's dad get involved with the mob?
The series never delves into Kate's father (Brian d'Arcy James) or his misdeeds that led him to be involved with Kingpin. All we know is that Kate's mother has to pay off his death after he dies. If the series gets renewed, this could be a storyline they go into.
They may even reveal that Kate's father never really died, similar to what happened with Kate's mother in the comics. We never do see his dead body.
What does the new and improved Statue of Liberty look like?
In "Hawkeye" episode five, Yelena mentions that she wants to see the "new and improved" Statue of Liberty but we never get to see it during the show. This leaves a question as to what "new and improved" means.
Although we can see Captain America's shield being added to the historic monument in the second trailer for "Spider-Man: No Way Home," in the film we see that the Statue of Liberty is the set piece for the final fight, which means it gets pretty trashed. Is the "new and improved" just re-adding the shield or have more changes been made?
Why did we not see a friendly neighborhood hero appear during the final battle?
It is always a question with solo stories why other Marvel characters do not pop up but Spider-Man (Tom Holland) had more reason than ever to show up in the "Hawkeye" finale.
Not only is the final battle in New York, where Spider-Man resides, the final scene of the latest Marvel movie "Spider-Man: No Way Home" heavily teased that Spider-Man may make an appearance in "Hawkeye."
It is not clear whether the possible cameo was canceled or if the final scene of "No Way Home" was just to show the passing of time.
Will Hawkeye pass the baton to Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop?
Hawkeye has been trying to retire from being a superhero since "Captain America: Civil War." With his Ronin storyline complete and Kate around to become a superhero in his place, there is an opportunity now more than ever for Hawkeye to retire from his duty and become a mentor figure for her.
If "Hawkeye" is renewed for a second season, this may be the direction they are heading especially after retiring or killing off several of the original Avengers in "Avengers Endgame."
What will happen to Yelena next?
The post-credit scene of "Black Widow" set up Yelena (Florence Pugh) on the path of revenge to kill Hawkeye after being told that the archer hero had killed her sister, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).
Yelena does not take the shot after discovering the truth about what happened, but what will Yelena do next? "Hawkeye" episode five shows that Yelena is now a warrior without a mission.
Will she use this opportunity to become a force for good after her discussions with Kate Bishop in the show, or will this push her further towards becoming a killer for hire? There is also the question of whether Yelena will go after Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), AKA Val, for misleading her about Black Widow's death.
"Hawkeye" shows that Val is willing to work for criminals but still doesn't explain her endgame
The mysterious Val was noticeably absent from "Hawkeye." We are still uncertain what her end goal is after two appearances or even who she really is.
The only information we gain from "Hawkeye" is that she works for criminals, considering that Yelena was hired through Val by Eleanor, potentially under the guidance of Kingpin.
Will Eleanor Bishop stay in prison?
At the end of the "Hawkeye" finale, Kate ensures that her mother is arrested for her crimes. However, when it comes to prison, the rich and powerful often do not stay locked up for very long especially if they can afford a good lawyer.
Will Eleanor become a larger threat for Kate down the road after being betrayed by her daughter or will she learn the error of her ways and become a better mother?
