It’s time to fire those arrows!!
After a very dull What If..? MCU can really make a comeback with one of the most anticipated series of all time. Yes, we are talking about Hawkeye. A Hawkeye standalone movie or show has been long due and I am glad that we are finally getting it now. MCU released the first trailer of the show last month and it looked really promising. And I hope that it turns out to be good. Because MCU really hasn’t made a really good show except for Loki as of now. WandaVision, TFWS, and What If…? have been kind of hit and miss. So, Hawkeye can really be the change they need. So, here is everything you need to know before Hawkeye comes around.
The official synopsis of the series reads “Series based on the Marvel Comics superhero Hawkeye, centering on the adventures of Young Avenger, Kate M. Bishop, who took on the role after the original Avenger, Clint Barton.”
The thing is we actually don’t know what the story will exactly be about. It is like we have the idea of what it will cover but in the contrast, we don’t know exactly what it will be about.
It will introduce Kate Bishop to us. Kate Bishop will take the mantle of Hawkeye after Clint Barton.
Hawkeye’s story will be based on the time when he was hiding after his family was wiped by Thanos. He took the title of Ronin and was a vigilante for a while. Now in the present, someone else is Ronis and she is after Clint with all her might.
Another thing that will happen is that Yelena might appear in this season. We know that she is going to be in Hawkeye acting like one of the antagonists. But we don’t actually know in which season she will appear.
There were lots of things happening in the trailer. But there were three things that took my attention. And we will talk about that.
The Trailer Looked Beautiful
I am not a big fan of how Marvel movies and shows actually look and feel. There is always some kind of disconnection between the look of the series or movie and the vibe of the scene.
But credit where it’s due, Marvel has been pulling out some really good-looking series and movies in phase 4. First, it was Loki then it was Sahng-Chi, which might be the best-looking movie in MCU.
And now the Hawkeye trailer also looked really good. And I am really surprised by it. I will talk about it later when the show will come out, but it’s looking really great right now.
I will always take hand-to-hand combat action over any other type of action. And this show is filled with that only. We saw so many shots with both Clint and Kate engaging in hand-to-hand combat. And I am really excited about it.
The biggest shock to me was that there was no Yelena in the trailer. Because we know that she is going to be in the show, I was expecting her to be here. But there was no sign of her.
And that is why I am doubtful whether she will be in the first season or not. Maybe she might appear in the second trailer or they might keep it surprise. We will never know until the show comes out.
Hawkeye: Release Date
The show is all set to release on November 24, 2021. It was set to release in December but it got an early release date and I am not complaining about it.
Hawkeye will stream on Disney+ Hotstar. This season will consist of 8 episodes only. Just like the previous Marvel shows and I think that is for the best.
