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.
Hawkeye has always been viewed as the Lame Avenger. In fact, after playing him in The Avengers, Jeremy Renner tried to get the producers to kill off his character so he wouldn’t have to play him anymore. Marvel Studios didn’t oblige him but instead elected to give Clint Barton more depth in Age of Ultron by revealing that the Avenger had a family.
Suddenly, he didn’t seem as boring anymore but that wasn’t the start of an epic story for the character. Instead he continued to plod along as a side character with barely any character development whatsoever. And even though Endgame unleashed a new side of him when he became a killing machine under the new alias Ronin after the loss of his family, his story was still sidelined to make way for the more “important” characters.
Unlike Loki, who has been a fan-favorite since his debut in Thor, Hawkeye has never truly gained the full respect of the Marvel fandom. In fact, for a long time, Hawkeye was the Disney+ series fans were least excited to see…even under Ms. Marvel. But I have a feeling that’s about to change.
(And it’s not because Yelena Belova’s going to play a role in it!)
Yesterday I ranked Marvel characters #57-41 which was quite the task but it was a fun task. Today, we’re counting down to 31. Let’s see who makes it in this next list.
Mantis is so cute. Even though she doesn’t really have the most incredible powers she’s always an essential member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and she’s just so likable. I can’t wait to see her innocence displayed once again in Thor: Love and Thunder.
39. Sharon Carter
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought Agent 13 was a cool supporting character. In Captain America: Civil War we learned that she was actually Sharon Carter. She had a one-movie fling with Steve Rogers (which I still find icky to this day) and then would finally return in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier with a much bigger and more sinister storyline.
I loved that the writers made her a villain. It makes sense for her storyline and makes her a far more compelling character moving forward in the MCU than she used to be.
Smart and always willing to speak her mind, Shuri is the perfect depiction of a Disney Marvel princess. Letitia Wright made her such a wonderful character in Black Panther that she immediately became one of my favorite aspects of the movie. I can’t wait to see her story continue in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is almost over but that doesn’t mean our time with Marvel is coming to a close anytime soon. In fact, we’ve got seven new installments to the franchise that we still have yet to see; Loki, Black Widow, What If…?, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Hawkeye, The Eternals, and Spider-Man 3.
Yeah, that’s a lot…and I am excited! But what am I most excited to see next? Well, it’s almost hard to choose isn’t it?
Loki is pretty much the most chaotic character in the MCU, specifically 2012 Loki. He’s conniving, mischievous, and downright dastardly. And now we’re about to get a Disney+ series featuring this guy and all of his shenanigans. It’s hard not to get excited about a chance to see more with this lovable villain and wherever this series could take us narratively. But is this the next MCU installment that I’m most excited about? I’m not quite sure.
Black Widow is finally coming to theaters and it feels like this movie is going to be quite a ride. It’s definitely going to be action-packed. It’s going to be more emotional than most people may anticipate. And we’re finally going to get the chance to resolve Natasha’s journey.
I’m so pumped for this film and a big reason why is because I want to see her adversary, Taskmaster, in action because he seems like a bad***.
Plus, it just looks like this is going to be a good movie.
