I tend to prefer characters like Batman and Hawkeye when they're not on teams with the likes of Thor and Superman. Though some of those Justice League and Avengers stories are certainly good. I've always poked fun at Hawkeye in the movies but I'm looking forward to the series. I think the character will work better in his own element.I’ve never quite understood the negativity toward Hawkeye in the MCU films.
That's something I've been impressed with as well. The Winter Soldier was a techno thriller, Guardians of the Galaxy is straight up science fiction, Ragnarok was almost a buddy comedy, and Wandavision is just really, really weird.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.
