Kate Bishop Will Be a Playable Character in MARVEL'S AVENGERS; Heroin Is Voiced by Ashly Burch

To absolutely nobody's surprise, Square Enix has announced that the other Hawkeye — aka Kate Bishop — will be a playable character introduced in the first story expansion for Crystal Dynamics' Marvel's Avengers.
You read that right, the Clint Barton–focused DLC will be a shared adventure, with the inexperienced heroin doing whatever it takes to stop her best frenemy before he joins forces with the shady AIM organisation.
During her journey, Kate will face some all-new enemies and a familiar villain — possibly Madame Masque.
According to Crystal Dynamics, Barton will be voiced by Giacomo Gianniotti (The Cuban), with Kate being played by Ashly Burch, who is best-known for portraying Aloy in Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn.
Considering that we've known that the younger Hawkeye will join the Marvel's Avengers fun for a good while now, chances are that the rest of the game's leaked roster — also including Captain Marvel, War Machine, and She-Hulk — will be officially announced sooner rather than later. Finally, one of the videos released during the new War Table suggests that Square Enix was planning to reveal a Black Panther–themed DLC today — but due to Chadwick Boseman's heartbreaking death the expansion will be revealed at a later date.
With Marvel's Avengers launching this Friday, be sure to take a closer look at the latest videos — focused on the studio's post-launch plans, daily and weekly missions, and various endgame activities — right now:
Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Marvel's Avengers will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020; coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this holiday season.
