OT: Marvel's Hawkeye (Spoilers)

Haven't seen a thread posted yet. I watched the first 2 episodes last night. I'll say, I have enjoyed all the Disney+ spin-off series so far, Loki being my favorite so far.

I really liked the trailer for the Hawkeye series but wasn't entirely pleased with the first couple episodes. Anybody familiar with the comics that can help me get excited about what's to come with the series?

Haven't read the Hawkeye comics but I watched the two episodes this morning and appreciated them.

Much better than F&WS so far, and i liked Wandavision a little better than Loki just bc I appreciated there being a lot of wtfness about it at the start.

Things I liked about Hawkeye: fills in more of what happened during the blip, Hailee Steinfeld and Jeremy Renner are incredible actors and they have great chemistry, Steinfeld is a great Kate Bishop, there was just enough humor bro, an alternate perspective of a family rebuilding post-blip, the alternate perspective of chitauri invasion of New York, and the sneaky commentary of how showbiz embellishes true stories for marketing/entertainment purposes.

That said, stepdad is almost certainly not a bad guy bc he's being positioned way too obviously as one. Mom-daughter dynamic is an interesting one to keep an eye on

I'm not sure if he's bad or not, but I am sure (fairly sure at least), they are building towards Kingpin based on the end of episode 2. Maybe he works for him.

I want an avengers musical and feel robbed we don't have one, some one call Lin-Manuel!

I rewatched the musics scene like 5 times. Giggled over and over.

I enjoyed it. And, it brought back the street level crime angle, which I hope gives us the window to bring back Daredevil and Kingpin. Echo (the leader of the Tracksuit Draculas) has ties to Kingpin in the comics, and Charlie Cox and Vincent D'onfrio are rumored to return to the MCU.

Enjoyed them, lmao at the larping part

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

Finally got to watch the first two episodes today. It was just far enough off from the Fraction run of Hawkeye to annoy me, but also I adore the Fraction run of Hawkeye and have read it multiple times over so 🤷‍♀️

I was excited to see Grills but I hope he doesn't have the same story as the comics. And Lucky/pizza dog is awesome 😁
