Avengers: Endgame comes out later this Spring. It revolves around the aftermath of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which left half of all life dead. In the trailer for Endgame, we see Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye, teaching his daughter Lila to perfect her archery skills.

At some point, you have to imagine Hawkeye will pass the torch on to a new generation. There’s precedence for this in the source comics. Kate Bishop was introduced as Hawkeye in 2005, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe could put that story line on Clint’s daughter Lila in the movies. Dana DeLorenzo would be perfect as Lila Barton and the next generation of Hawkeye.

This has got to be the easiest sell in this list. Dana played Kelly Maxwell for three seasons on Ash Vs. Evil Dead. She was constantly involved in heavily choreographed action scenes that involved prosthetics and stunt work. Throughout these scenes, she’d be throwing one liners and shade at friends and foes alike. Sounds like a Marvel movie to me!

She would be able to step right in to the MCU and film those Hawkeye type scenes where she’s jumping off a building and shooting no-look trident arrows at human sized dragons from outer space. That could practically be a scene from the season four of Ash Vs. Evil Dead that we never got.
