After ‘Wandavision’, ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ and ‘Loki’, Marvel aren’t quite finished with the shows that follow on from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ because the first trailer for their next show, ‘Hawkeye’, was released on the 13th of September.
‘Hawkeye’ is a 6-episode Disney+ series that sees the return of Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as he comes face-to-face with his past as well as meeting archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld – Bumblebee), all while celebrating Christmas!
Like Wanda Maximoff and Vision, Hawkeye was another character that I felt was mistreated by Marvel in terms of writing. However, despite Jeremy Renner bringing out a fantastic performance, I also don’t think Hawkeye is that interesting of a character. So, my interest for the show is non-existent. But, after seeing the trailer, my interest has piqued a little. Hailee Steinfeld is a fantastic actress, so her appearance as another expert archer is an aspect that will be wonderful to see. Plus, the action sequences look interesting, with a mixture of fighting styles (hand-to-hand combat and archery), so visually, the show could look gorgeous. And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a glimpse at ‘Steve Rogers: The Musical’ and Christmas visuals!
But, like previously mentioned, my interest in the Disney+ show has only piqued a little. This was a character that I never cared for, but one that was also treated poorly in the Marvel films. So, while I understand why Hawkeye is getting his own series, this will be one that I myself will not watch. But I hope the show does the character justice (and gives him more screentime!).
‘Hawkeye’ comes to Disney+ on the 24th of November 2021.
