Hawkeye Disney+ Limited Series (spoilers)

Tomorrow is the big day, with the first two episodes debuting, so I figured it was time to start a fresh thread. One new official bit of info was revealed today, in that this series is set two years and a few months after Endgame, at Christmas time 2025. So another short time jump into the future from what we know in the previous series and movies.

That makes it a little over two years after WandaVision, close to two years after Falcon and Winter Soldier and over a year after Spiderman: Far From Home, as that school trip was June/July 2024. Loki's key events happen outside the timeline, so no way to make that fit and I am honestly not sure the exact time for the end-credits scenes in Shang-Chi or Black Widow, just they are post-Endgame.

The two end credit scenes in Black Widow take place just before Avengers: Infinity War and (I believe) shortly before Hawkeye, respectively.

No, the second one has Yelena at Natasha's grave, so that is post-Endgame. And Infinity War is 5 years before Endgame, so 7 years before Hawkeye.
Let me clarify: Black Widow end credit scene 1 takes place just before Avengers: Infinity War.
Black Widow end credit scene 2 takes place sometime after Avengers: Endgame, but I believe it takes place closer to the beginning of Hawkeye than to the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Comments on episode 1 under spoilers:

Once upon a time there was a little princess who discovered that the world could be a terrifying place, and then was accidentally saved by a travelling prince. This was all very good, but so impressed with him was she that she decided to become a prince herself! Was this really a good idea?

(She could probably have done much better, but that's how it goes. Anyone want to bet that Kate's dad is actually alive and kicking?)

Oh the look on Clint and Lila's faces as they're watching the play! It stops being funny very quickly, though.

Well there's a kick in the pants for you.

And the Swordsman! Okay, this is taking some interesting turns.

Oh, I don't think this is going to play out the way that Kate thinks it will.

Fight choreography is a bit rougher than it has been recently, or possibly I'm spoiled by Arcane.

Oh good grief how long has that pizza been in there?

And they meet again for the first time. Away we go.

Episode 2:

Episode 2:

Moira Brandon?! Wow, that's a deep cut!

The proper answer to "Why don't you join us?" in this situation is, "Because I'd rather eat offal."

Okay, I am convinced that Jeremy Renner is having the time of his life in this scene.

The proper answer to "Why don't you apologize" is also "Because I'd rather eat offal."

Kate's mom is probably the big bad.

And there's Echo. The cast is almost complete.

Watched both episodes and enjoyed them, but not going to make spoiler comments yet. One side note, and don't anyone turn this political, but the actor playing Hawkeye's older son, Ben Sakamoto, would be perfect for the Kyle Rittenhouse biopic you know will be made. That whole thing is so recently in the news that I had to do a double take when I saw the actor on-screen.

I was thinking the same thing as your second to last comment on episode 2. After all,
where did all that money come from?

Ostensibly, I would suspect that it's seeded from a life insurance payout.
Maybe, but...

... they already had a penthouse in Manhattan, which would run in the millions of dollars. Sure, they were talking about selling it, so were having some sort of financial issues, but there was still a lot of money there.

I’ll change the thread title to say spoilers, folks. Saves having to put every post in a spoiler block. Feel free to start a separate non-spoiler thread if you feel the need for one! :)
 



Very good so far. The tone is perfect, the dynamic between Clint and Kate is great. A lot from the Fraction and Aja series is baked in, but it’s not just an adaptation (and couldn’t be). I saw Fraction had a consulting credit, so that’s awesome. I like when they do right by the comic guys.

The first two episodes were good. The song and dance did play on longer than necessary but if I wrote that I would use all of it too. The chat about branding was funny on many levels and I assume that was intentional. My only complaint so far is with Kate Bishop. This is my introduction to her character and I find her 50% enjoyably funny and 50% annoyingly dumb. That does give her room to grow and I remember being an idiot when I was 22 but some of the choices she makes in the first episode are baffling.

I was wrong a lot when trying to guess the outcomes/plot points of previous Marvel shows so I'll hold off on that.

.Any speculation about what's so great about the watch, and whether it's going to become a major McGuffin?
My money is on stark tech. Also my money is that the mom actually killed Arnaldo, Jax is a red herring.

overall pretty decent so far, I agree with the comments above that Kate is annoyingly dumb at times, but ultimately I think that’s “realistic”.

The idea is she has practiced forever but has no real experience. Her martial arts is all tournament, her archery all ranges….nothing in real combat situations. She’s also well off and so a bit naive about the world.
