Yeah, which is to be expected, given the font they are using for the title. That's the way it looked for Matt Fraction's run on Hawkeye's comic which... leaned a bit to the absurd, in a pretty good way.

In Age of Ultron, the quote, "The city is flying and we're fighting an army of robots. And I have a bow and arrow. Nothing makes sense," is the Matt Fraction style of looking at the character.

I think that might be the way to make Hawkeye interesting.

Is that even possible?

I am reasonably certain at this point that by pushing out a Hawkeye series, Disney has just confirmed that they are run by Energy Vampires.

This was a really good run. Hawkeye is cool.

That a character has had good runs in the comics (a point I do not disagree with!) is not the same as saying, "Hawkeye, in the MCU, and as portrayed by Jeremy Renner, is cool."

I feel that Hawkeye started uncool, and got progressively uncooler the harder they tried* (look, a family! look, he goes really hardcore!). YMMV. :)



*First law of cool- you can't try to be cool.

What is past is past, what he was is irrelevant. Whether he will be cool in this series is the question.

I think one of the strengths of the MCU is the widest variety of genres its trying to use, to ensure that it captures the widest audience. Trying out a "Christmas Comedy" seems a reasonable step to that.

The question is, will this clash too harshly with the "I've done these terrible things in my past" element. Having Hawkeye face down his demons while funny music is playing may be too much a tonal clash.

But that's a wait and see, everyone of the TV shows gets a least 1 episode from me. This trailer definitely intrigued me, as the show does look very different from what I was expecting.

I’ve never quite understood the negativity toward Hawkeye in the MCU films.

Everyone has their own opinions of course, but I really like him in the films and I think Renner does a great job portraying him

Just my 2 cents of course
Totally agree. The negativity about Hawkeye in the MCU has baffled me from the start.

And this looks to be absolutely fantastic.

Same. They put in Black Widow and Hawkeye as top tier unpowered agents, to give us an "everyman" who is baffled by what's going on around them. I think it works exceedingly well and liked both characters. Widow's, "Sure. It'll be fun" deadpan delivery in "The Avengers" and Hawkeye's "and I've got a bow" in "Age of Ultron" are perfect "what the hell" moments for the characters.
