WATCH: Hawkeye star reveals there have been "conversations" about their return
"Many Marvel characters have survived worse..."
Death doesn't mean what it used to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It used to be that when someone died, that was it, they were gone for good. But now, all bets are off.
Characters can come back thanks to time travel (Gamora in Avengers: Endgame), or the multiverse (just look at everyone who returned from the grave in Spider-Man: No Way Home), or if they're recreated by an all-powerful witch (WandaVision), or just through a good old-fashioned prequel (Black Widow).
And, of course, unless you explicitly see them die onscreen, then chances are incredibly high that they aren't actually dead at all.
Such is the case with Hawkeye villain Kazi, who was portrayed in the Disney+ show by Irish actor Fra Fee.
JOE recently caught up with Fee to discuss his incredibly impressive career to date, and even more impressive upcoming CV, and you can check out that conversation in full right here:
In case you're not all caught up on the events of Hawkeye, the final episode would have you believe that both Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Kazi had been done in, but as we mentioned, unless the show actually shows you putting them in the ground, it can't be trusted. And even then, there's still a way around death.
So when we chatted to Fee about the potential for a return to the MCU, he remained mostly tight-lipped, while also giving fans some hope:
"There have been conversations... [...] Everyone who has seen the series, everyone who is a fan... I guess it is completely up to the viewers as to whether they think Kazi is gone or not.
"Certainly, many Marvel characters have survived worse. What is a mere stab wound to the stomach? He's a tough guy! And I think I may have heard an ambulance siren in the background. So he may have got on it... who knows?"
"We'll see in due course, absolutely."
We also chatted to Fee about his role in Zack Snyder's epic new sci-fi movie Rebel Moon - which was originally intended to be a Star Wars movie - and you read all about that right here.
