Well, the first two episodes of Hawkeye dropped today, I watched them this morning at 3am which has become my ritual with the new Disney+ series I’m excited for, and unfortunately, I was bored out of my mind.
The first two episodes of this series aren’t gripping at all. I love Hawkeye but his gruntled nature doesn’t help the series as he goes around grumbling about everything at every turn in a way that does, at least, feel totally warranted. And Hailee Steinfeld looks like a carbon copy of what Kate Bishop should look like in live-action but unfortunately she isn’t really engaging me either.
The script, so far, is weak, the humor isn’t really there, and the plot is SO BORING. I gave the first episode a pass because it’s basically the pilot. It set up the characters, their stories, what’s going on, and it ended decently. But the second episode only continued to drag the boredom instead of becoming this absolutely fantastic rollercoaster ride.
The second episode was so boring, in fact, I kept tapping the screen to see how many minutes I had left.
What’s the famous saying? “Save the best for last.” Well, Hawkeye is coming out in nine days and I think Marvel Studios may have done exactly that: saved their best for last.
The first reactions to the show’s first two episodes arrived last week and the response was overwhelmingly positive, with some already stating that the series was their favorite of the Marvel series so far this year. And judging from the tiny clip we got on Disney+ Day I’m not surprised. It looks fantastic!
Hawkeye has always been one of my favorite characters but for some reason he was never given much of a storyline. Now his time to shine has come and not only are we getting him but we’re also getting Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop. This actually does feel like a holiday gift actually and I can’t wait to see this show next Wednesday.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Well, the trailer for Hawkeye just dropped and Marvel Studios has gone full-throttle with the holiday season vibe for this series. Check it out.
This trailer was just…awesome. Like any great trailer, it gave us enough story to understand what’s going on but not enough information to ruin all of the fun surprises this series will undoubtedly deliver.
First off, I already thought that casting Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop would be perfect casting and this trailer just reiterated that fact. I just know she’s going to be hilarious and such a bad*** all at once.
Secondly, this show is going to have some of the best action in the MCU. Mark my words.
Third, I love the music and the Christmas theme. It really feels like we’re getting an end-of-the-year present and I am here for all of it.
Four, I loved this trailer. It was fun, funny, and yeah, quite a bit entertaining. I can’t wait to see this story and how it connects with the wider MCU.
All in all, I’m excited for yet another fantastic Marvel Studios live-action series.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
Hawkeye is a character that has long been slept on in the MCU and yet he’s managed to play a pivotal supporting role throughout his run in this franchise. I recently saw a post on Instagram that laid out the facts; every team that Hawkeye’s on wins. Don’t believe me? Here are the facts.
When he became one of the core six Avengers they defeated Loki and his army of Chitauri at the Battle of New York.
In Age of Ultron, they managed to beat Ultron on Sokovia and saved the world.
In Captain America: Civil War, he joined Cap’s team and they won, considering that Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes still managed to get away to try and stop the Winter Soldiers.
He wasn’t a part of the fight in Infinity War and The Avengers lost terribly.
He did join the fight in Endgame and well, The Avengers defeated Thanos and saved the universe.
Yeah, Hawkeye’s a secret MVP in the MCU but he’s never got the recognition he deserved…until now.
