The Tracksuit Mafia is featured on a new character poster for Hawkeye.
Hawkeye, a new Marvel Cinematic Universe show on Disney+ featuring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, is a new Marvel Cinematic Universe show starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop.
Eleanor Bishop is played by Vera Farmiga, Jack Duquesne is played by Tony Dalton, Maya Lopez is played by Alaqua Cox, and Yelena Belova is played by Florence Pugh.
The new series is based on Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye comic series, which takes Barton in New York City and eventually joins him up with Kate Bishop, a talented archer who wants to be like him. The Disney+ series loosely adapts the comics, rather than being a direct adaptation, it serves as a pattern for the show.
Along with Lucky the Pizza Dog, the Tracksuit Mafia (also known as “Tracksuit Draculas” in the comic) are a bunch of Ukrainian mercenaries/thugs who get in the way of Hawkeye, causing a bitter feud.
Ivan Banionis (Aleks Paunovic), Tomas Delgado (Piotr Adamczyk), Enrique (Carlos Navarro), and Kazi Kazimierczak nicknamed The Clown (Fra Fee) all appear in the first two episodes of Hawkeye, and they now have their own holiday character poster from Marvel. The thugs arrive early in the show to attack Kate, thinking for Ronin after she steals and dons the costume. When Barton arrives to provide a hand, things become even more complicated with the group of matched bad men.
Take a look at the poster below:
The Tracksuit Mafia appears to be a recurring character in the six-episode series, and they appear to be led by none other than Maya Lopez aka Echo, a character that first appeared in Daredevil.
After her appearance/introduction in Hawkeye, Echo will have her own spinoff show on the streaming service. Echo is deaf in the comics and has the capacity to perfectly imitate the motions and powers of others, as well as possessing outstanding martial arts skills.
According to her comic book roots, she is also raised as Kingpin’s daughter by Kingpin (played by Vincent D’Onofrio in Netflix’s Daredevil series), but it’s unclear how closely the Disney+ drama would follow that lineage.
