Even by his usual standards, Kevin Feige has had to increase his levels of vigilance after Spider-Man: No Way Home became the subject of near-constant leaks, spoilers and story points, although we can’t say with any degree of certainty how many of the so-called reveals are actually legit.
Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer must have been looking forward to hitting the press circuit for Hawkeye as a result, because all of the key creatives have been open when it comes to talking about the festive, fun-filled adventure that sets Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop up as a major part of the franchise moving forward.
