As per The Cosmic Circus, a filmed but deleted scene would have confirmed that Fisk has survived the shooting that takes place off-screen. Even in the comics, Maya’s bullet ends up blinding Fisk for a certain time as he yet again rebuilds his criminal empire.

The scene sees Clint Barton sending Kingpin the Ronin sword that he used to kill William Lopez, Maya’s father, who dies at the hands of Barton’s alter-ego before the events of Endgame. The sword also comes with a warning: please away from his protege-slash-partner Kate Bishop and his family, including his retired S.H.I.E.L.D. agent wife, Laura.

However, the visual effects artist at Marvel, Elaina Scott claims that a totally different deleted post-credits scene may have revealed the fates of the Tracksuit Mafia bros who were sized down with Ant-Man’s shrinking technology, used by Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate. However, Hawkeye ends with a holiday present: an extended scene from Rogers: The Musical.

“It wasn’t planned that that was going to be the way that the show was going to close… I was curious, like, ‘Is this slot going to be reserved for teeing something else up?’ in the tradition that Marvel’s known for,” Rhys Thomas, who directed the finale, told Collider of the musical sequence. “[Marvel Studios] made the decision to put the musical at the end there, which honestly, I was slightly conflicted about because as a fan, I’m like, ‘The people, they want to see something, they want to know what’s coming next. Is this going to disappoint?'”

In the end, Thomas said, “It’s like, no, no, no, it’s Christmas, it’s light. We’ve got so much blood in this episode, it’s just fun. It’s a fun release at the end, and it’s a nice way to send people off. That’s how that came about and in terms of what it was.”

For Vincent D’Onofrio, who reprises the role of Kingpin that he last played about three years ago in the now-canceled Marvel/Netflix series, Daredevil. The actor is now hoping to return to the MCU for the spinoff series Echo.
