Marvel's bringing back the West Coast Avengers in a new ongoing series, and Hawkeye fans will definitely want to take notice.

“They all need and want something from being on that team together," Thompson said. "Kate needs to help save LA, and she needs help to do that because villains have taken notice that there are no Super Heroes out there. I think there’s part of her that misses [being on a team] too. She’s been doing her own thing, on her own, and that’s cool. But she was the one, who, with no powers, was like ‘I’m leading the Young Avengers, I’m the boss.’”
As for Clint, he is “trying to help Kate” according to Thompson, but “doesn’t want to admit how much it’s fun for him to mentor.”
“I think America is the biggest question mark, and I think that’s something we’re excited to explore: Why does she come back to LA? Why does she come back to be with Kate? Does she miss [the group dynamic] too? Because America, she likes to play things a little close to the vest," Thompson said.
