Hawkeye's Kill Count Breaks Marvel's Bloodiest Record

The TV series Hawkeye now holds Marvel's bloodiest record for the most kill counts on-screen.

As reported by Screen Rant, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) rack up an estimated 50 to 55 bodies in total. Now that's a lot of blood.

To put things in context, Winter Soldier's count is at around 45 on-screen kills.

More surprisingly perhaps, Tony Stark, who is considered as the leader of The Avengers, only managed to tally up an estimated total of 35 kills.

For those unaware of the show, as per the Marvel Cinematic Universe website: "The series is a sequel to Avengers: Endgame and Black Widow.

"It is the seventeenth television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the eighth instalment of Phase Four.

"The series is produced by Marvel Studios and was released on Disney+."

The synopsis for season one reads: "Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero.

"The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton's past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit."

The series also stars Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d'Arcy James and Alaqua Cox.

Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova also appears, following her debut in Black Widow.

Speaking about Steinfeld's character, Renner told Entertainment Weekly: "She's 22-year-old kid and she's a big Hawkeye fan. 

"She has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her, because she's such a fangirl of Hawkeye. 

"The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems that she brings into his life."

Renner also took on the role of mentor with Steinfeld off-screen and explained: "That was always my role.

"Outside of acting in the thing, I was protecting her and giving her the CliffsNotes on how it goes with this kind of filmmaking: green screen, superhero life, all that stuff.

"I just wanted to protect her, because there's a lot of physical stuff. She's a wonderful actress, a wonderful human, and I can't wait to see all the cool stuff that she's able to do."

Hawkeye is available to watch on Disney+.
