Hawk Eye didn’t skimp on the action, with relatively grounded heroes engaging in some bow-based chases, fights, and general mayhem. The vehicular race in the third episode is the highest point, while the finale delivers on its promise of seeing Clint Barton and Kate Bishop pass all the stops.
But it looks like the finale may have had too much action to match the episode, after director Rhys Thomas revealed in an interview with Metro made the audience missed Yelena Belova’s amazing sonic stealth footage.
“The fight between Kazi and Clint in the office, there will be a much longer sequence where Clint will take down all the TSMs [Tracksuit Mafia] in a way that’s almost like Ronin, where you’re going to see this sneak side, and it’s going to be a much longer sequence, that we’re just going to cut it short and Yelena is also coming in the office… It’s just a moving target of both scripting and logistics, stunt coordination and visual effects, it’s all planning. Definitely a lot. ”
Florence Pugh stole the show in Black Widow, and continue her hilarious and deadly winning streak here. We’ve seen her in action quite a bit as she takes on Kate, Clint, and Echo at various points, but it would be nice if she sent some goons in a ninja-like stealth tactic class.
Luckily, I doubt we’ll see more Yelena any time soon. Kevin Feige will know how quickly audiences have captured their hearts and I look forward to her joining any future Avengers teams. But in the meantime, how about a short quirky couple Kate and Yelena about girls with superhero skills living in New York City?
Hawk Eye Now available in full on Disney Plus.
