Hawkeye: Limited Series (Anytime / Disney+) – Marvel comics got stuck in this silly game of new characters old names.
So Peter Parker is Spider-Man and now suddenly Miles Morales is Spider-Man. That doesn’t make any sense.
Same with Captain America, Wolverine (sigh…) and Hawkeye. The comics were having so much fun being lazy the MCU on Disney+ decided to play that game too!
Jeremy Renner is Hawkeye.
Kate Bishop is not Hawkeye.
If she calls herself that…that’s dumb which means she’s dumb.
Kate Bishop: “Some people have actually called me…the world’s greatest archer.” I can promise you they have not. Updating your Wikipedia page doesn’t make it true.
Do The Work: Come Up With An Original Name. Inspirations not Iterations.
This trailer offers no surprises: it’s exactly what you think it’ll be.
Hawkeye will premiere its first two episodes on November 24, 2021 (#SetTheVCR); with six episodes total, concluding on December 22.
