A Little Bit More Hawkeye

The Hawkeye TV show is about a month away or so, and while we don’t have a second trailer, we have a new TV spot with a bit more footage. I’ll take anything at this point, because I am very excited for the Hawkeye TV show. It could and should be a lot of fun!

This bit also reveals that we’ll get the first two episodes premiering on the same day, so that’s even more awesome! I am really hyped for this show and am hoping hoping hoping for the best. Kate Bishop should be great, Clint Barton is already great and obviously we all want to see more of Rogers: The Musical. May it all live up to our loftiest dreams!

Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24.

The First Hawkeye Trailer Has Arrived!

The Hawkeye TV show arrives at the end of November, so it’s a good two months away. Sounds like the perfect time to release the first trailer! And it’s super fun!

Rogers: The Musical? Are you kidding me? That’s hilarious! Love it. Jeremy Renner is great in this trailer, and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop seems super fun! There’s not enough Pizza Dog. And the trailer seems just a little bit dark? What’s up with that?

Either way, the show looks great in this first peak. I have high hopes for this one, as I’ve had for every Marvel TV show. You can check out my previous List of Six on what I hope to see in the show. And perhaps rewatch the trailer, because it’s fun!

Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24 for a six-episode season.

Hawkeye Show Coming in November!

Entertainment Weekly put out a nice article yesterday revealing that the Hawkeye TV show will come out on Disney+ on Nov. 24, just in time for families to get together and discuss the first episode on Thanksgiving! And check out this first official image.

That’s Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld as Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. We know various things about this show and all of them sound good. We’re going to get shades of the Trenchcoat Mafia. There’s rumors of some other characters showing up that I don’t want to spoil here. It’s basically sounding like a really solid show.

Hawkeye will be six episodes and that will take us through the end of the year. Likely that means Ms. Marvel will debut sometime in January, because Marvel doesn’t want to overlap shows. And all of that sounds good to me!

6 Things I Want to See in the Hawkeye TV Show

Last week, we finally got some major news about the Hawkeye TV show coming to Disney+, including the fact that Hailee Steinfeld will be starring as Kate Bishop. I think that’s great! But here’s the thing: most of the news we got confirmed everything I’d want to see in a Hawkeye TV show. So what the heck am I going to put into this list?

Remember when he did this?

My list of things I’d want to see on the Hawkeye show begins and ends with Matt Fraction’s legendary Hawkeye comic book run, which I consider an era-defining comic from the 2000s. And the news last week confirmed that the show is definitely taking that comic as direct inspiration, from both the inclusion of Pizza Dog to the villain, Clown. So what’s left to even talk about?

Welp, I managed to find a couple other things and cobbled this list together. Sometimes, even when they use the best source material possible, these adaptations can really muck things up. So allow me to offer six guidelines of things I’d like to see in the upcoming Hawkeye TV show!

Who’s Ready For a Whole Bunch of Hawkeye TV Casting News?

We’ve known for a while now that Disney and Marvel were working on a Hawkeye TV show. There have also been rumors about the storyline for the show and even some casting. But I don’t really like to report on rumors, especially when they’re vehemently denied by the people involved.

Welp, shooting has begun in New York City and we’ve got a whole bunch of confirmations and casting news to revel in! Turns out the Hawkeye TV show is going to feature Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton from the Avengers movies mentoring Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye!

And Kate Bishop will be played by Hailee Steinfeld!

This hasn’t been officially confirmed by Disney, and Steinfeld did a lot of denying over the past few months, but she has now been actively spotted on set with Renner, so it’s for real.

One of the antagonists in the show will be the Clown, played by Fra Fee.

Which means the Matt Fraction Hawkeye comic will likely be an inspiration — which is good, because I consider that comic to be one of the best comics of the century so far.

We’ve also got Tony Dalton as the Swordsman, Hawkeye’s mentor when he was just starting out. So that’s pretty neat!

And likely means we’ll see plenty of flashbacks to Hawkeye getting his start as a master archer. I’m down with that.

Other casting news includes newcomer Alaqua Cox as Echo. I would have posted a picture, but I couldn’t find any images of Alaqua Cox on Google. I guess this is her first starring role. Echo is a fun character.

There’s also going to be Vera Farmiga as Kate Bishop’s mom and Zahn McClarnon as Echo’s father. So that’s nifty!

Florence Pugh’s upcoming Black Widow movie character, Yelena Belova, is also rumored to appear in the show. That is also cool! The Hawkeye TV show is shaping up to be pretty excellent. Marvel’s going to have a whole heck of a lot of fun TV shows coming! I can’t wait!
