We’re less than two weeks away from the highly anticipated debut of Marvel’s Hawkeye on Disney+. The first reactions to the new series have hit social media and we’ve collected some of the most notable, starting of course with our own…
As expected, the series focuses on a non-powered hero living in a world that is only getting more and more overrun with super-powered beings. And while we give some love to Lucky the Dog, most of the praise going around is for Hailee Steinfeld.
Some fans are a little shaky on the story of the series itself, while others are just looking forward to the day Kate Bishop and Yelena Belova meet.
Like us, some fans are ready to step away from the large-scale, cosmic stories and just get back to the siple heroes on the streets of New York.
The series will also be loved by anyone who enjoyed the Matt Fraction and David Aja run on Hawkeye from 2015, which appears to have greatly inspired the series.
And finally, it appears the show wastes no time getting right into the fun as the opening scene is something Marvel fans will enjoy.
- Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye is an original new series set in post-blip New York City where former Avenger Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. But when a threat from his past shows up, Hawkeye reluctantly teams up with Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), a 22-year-old skilled archer and his biggest fan, to unravel a criminal conspiracy. The series also features Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez. Helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie, Hawkeye debuts exclusively on Disney+ on Nov. 24, 2021.
