Hawkeye was one of Marvel Studios’ more grounded storylines, as Jeremy Renner‘s Clint Barton had to take on a couple of mafia goons in tracksuits alongside their leader Echo. Though, we’re also introduced to Kazi, a very different take from the comics clown portrayed by Fra Fee. At the end of the series, it seemed like the character made his untimely doom at the hands of his former boss, but Fee believes that there’s still a future for the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In an interview with Attitude Magazine, the actor got a chance to talk about his upcoming role in Zack Snyder‘s Rebel Moon and used the opportunity to tease his potential return to the MCU. While he doesn’t confirm anything, he says he doesn’t “really know just yet” but highlights that “no one’s ever dead in Marvel” after the events of Hawkeye.
Erm, the truth is, I don’t really know just yet. But I very much hope that Kazi can make an appearance. I wouldn’t put money on the fact he met an untimely end at the end of Hawkeye. No one’s ever dead in Marvel. I would be very hopeful and I’d certainly be thrilled to revisit the character and the world — I had such a good timeFra Fee
He has confirmed in the past he knows about the character’s story and wasn’t going to tease if we may still get the Clown at some point. Many fans of the original run were a bit underwhelmed when he was nothing more than a member of the Tracksuit Mafia, but with an Echo spinoff show on the horizon, they could still take it in a direction that he makes his return as a changed man. For now, it’s just fun to speculate but who knows where the MCU is heading.
