Kate Bishop coming to Marvel’s Avengers, Black Panther reveal delayed

Square Enix held a live stream for Marvel’s Avengers and revealed a trailer showcasing the first post-launch character in the game – Hawkeye Kate Bishop.



The Avengers Initiative will evolve over time for years to come.  Each addition combines and builds over time to a much larger series of story arcs. We’ve discussed missions in the past, but now it’s time to share some intel on Operations!

Kate Bishop is officially the first Avenger to join our roster after launch, voiced by fan-favorite Ashly Burch. In the comics, Clint – the original Hawkeye – took on Kate as a protégé. That being said, Kate is often the mature one in the face of Clint’s recklessness.

Operation Marvel’s Avengers: Kate Bishop — Taking AIM will directly advance from the conclusion of the Reassemble campaign, and includes a new villain for Kate to face off against.


Clint – voiced by TV veteran Giacomo Gianniotti – will come with his own Hero Operation, Marvel’s Avengers: Hawkeye — Future Imperfect. Considering the strong friendship and connection between Kate and Clint, we think of their Operations as a “double feature.”

Square Enix also showed a screen with Black Panther’s logo in tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

Black Panther was apparently going to be revealed today as well, but Square Enix decided to hold off as there was no way that was going to be received well in the wake of Boseman’s death.

Marvel’s Avengers will be available Sept. 4. You can pre-order now on Amazon.
