Recently, the first Hawkeye teaser was released online, previewing the internet’s next Marvel TV fixation. Since his introduction in 2011’s Thor, Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton has been making appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is the first standalone series centering on Hawkeye. However, Clint will have a new companion in crime-fighting in the form of Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop.
In Hawkeye, Clint Barton appears to be grappling with the consequences of his time as Ronin. He adopted this alternate codename between Avengers Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, over the Christmas season. Eventually, he meets Kate Bishop, a fellow great archer. The two seem to team up to take out some bad guys in a hilarious manner just in time for the holidays.
Take a look at the trailer below. Don’t be surprised if you notice a reminiscent of Die Hard and Home Alone together.
This past decade has seen Clint go through a number of changes that have been fascinating. His wife and children are more important to him than his role as an Avengers founding father. The other heroes don’t have the time to devote to their families. But he returned to active service in Avengers: Endgame. He did so he could help undo the Snap and reunite with his family. According to the official plot summary, the Marvel superhero has returned to a life of retirement.
Meanwhile, Marvel has issued its first official synopsis for the series. It includes some fascinating words, such as Clint being referred to as a “former Avenger”. Here’s what the synopsis says;
“Disney+ and Marvel Studios invite you on an unexpected holiday getaway, unwrapping the official trailer and teaser poster for Hawkeye, a new series set in post-blip New York City. Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.”
With the arrival of Hawkeye on Disney Plus, Marvel can look forward to another successful television series. Fans have flocked to Disney’s streaming service to catch up on the studio’s four other programs. So, we expect Hawkeye to be a hit as well. Falcon and the Winter Soldier grappled with creating a non-cosmic MCU TV series that’ll spark lots of online speculation.
As good as Falcon and the Winter Soldier was at times, it paled in contrast to WandaVision in terms of overall quality. Throughout its nine-episode existence, Marvel’s debut TV program was aided by various fan theories. This is all thanks to its mystery narrative, magical aspects, and comedy show influence. Compared to its predecessor, Falcon, and the Winter Soldier was more gritty and realistic. WandaVision, on the other hand, was unable to achieve the heights of its predecessor due to a lack of heated speculation.
Hawkeye is in a similar situation. Marvel’s fifth TV series follows in the footsteps of Loki (probably their finest show to date). Furthermore, ‘What If…?’ Marvel’s animated anthology has fared better than predicted. If Hawkeye takes place in a more earthy location, it might be argued that the film is already at a disadvantage. There is also a possibility that Hawkeye has some tricks under its sleeve.
Hawkeye could mess with our minds. It has been revealed that Kate Bishop, Echo, or other characters have been dragged into the MCU from other worlds. Fans would be in a frenzy if this happened. As a result of Pugh’s Belova, Marvel’s TV programs and movies will have a stronger connection than before. Additionally, Bishop and Lucky the Pizza Dog are guaranteed to increase Hawkeye’s popularity.
It’s time for Hawkeye to have the TV show that he deserves. Give Barton more character development, give him a fantastic opponent, and give us some huge multiverse surprises.
There’s an official release date for Hawkeye’s debut trailer, and fans won’t have to wait long. On the other hand, other than a few official photos and plot synopsis, we know very little about Marvel’s upcoming TV series. This being said, the series is set to release on 24 November 2021 exclusively on Disney Plus.
