Wonder’s Avengers developer Crystal Dynamics introduced Kate Bishop’s December debut in a brand new video on Thursday. However the studio additionally teased some thrilling pieces for the longer term.
On the finish of the Kate Bishop deep dive, we were given a preview of Hawkeye’s Operation coming subsequent 12 months: Long term Imperfect. We see a Hawkeye (with lengthy hair!) strolling thru a desolate destiny. It’s stuffed with flipped-over vehicles, rust, and all types of brown — mainly what you’d be expecting post-nuclear fallout.
However issues get attention-grabbing when Hulk enters the image. On this desolate tract, Hawkeye approaches Hulk — in his Maestro shape — sitting on a throne, surrounded via Avengers relics, below a frozen Sentinel. Within the comics, this older, desolate tract Hulk is in reality Maestro, and he’s a supervillain with the mind of Bruce Banner. He additionally has a beard and a sexy distinguished bald spot.
Maestro speaks to Hawkeye and tells him, “Welcome to the tip of the arena.”
The tease of Maestro and future-Hawkeye is attention-grabbing sufficient. However there’s additionally a tease for a destiny hero when you glance carefully amongst Maestro’s assortment. By means of his toes rests the helmet of Black Panther.

With this tease, it kind of feels the rumors are true, and Black Panther may well be making his technique to Wonder’s Avengers someday subsequent 12 months.
Crystal Dynamics and Sq. Enix will release Hawkeye’s Long term Imperfect Operation early subsequent 12 months. The studio can even unencumber the PlayStation five and Xbox Sequence X variations of Wonder’s Avengers in early 2021.
