Hawkeye has barely started, and fans are already looking to the future. With rumors of the inclusion of Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk found around every corner online, fans watching the show can’t help but think just how the character will be involved should he eventually show up. As we explained earlier, a character introduced at the tail-end of the two-part premiere has a direct relationship with the iconic Marvel villain, and the show’s plot itself is perfect for the introduction of a character like Kingpin.
Regardless, Hawkeye producer Trinh Tran wouldn’t confirm one way or another when we asked her about the rumors earlier this month.
“Well, Maya Lopez is cool, like I said, she’s such a badass in the comics and we wanted to make sure that that was, you know, portrayed as well,” Tran tells ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis. “I can’t go into details in terms of like how she’s integrated into, you know, the story. I don’t wanna spoil anything, Brandon.”
Enough people are talking about the character’s eventual rumored arrival, he’s already trending on social media. Keep scrolling to see what Hawkeye fans are saying.

==== THEORY =====
I think this might be my huge stretch but what if Fisk was the one who is funding Val to form THUNDERBOLTS in MCU using Ross and also sent Val to hire Yelena to murder Clint Barton using her sister’s death for her revenge. #Kingpin #Hawkeye #Marvel ?? pic.twitter.com/yYr4xRuBrE
