The debut trailer for Hawkeye dropped yesterday and – let’s not beat across the bush right here – it kicked ass. It clearly takes heavy inspiration from Matt Fraction’s comics run with the character, combining intense motion, wry humor, and a bunch of favor. However amongst all of the arrow-based shenanigans, there’s one significantly nice reveal: in the MCU you can see “Rogers: The Musical”.
This seems to be a musical retelling of the lifetime of Steve Rogers/Captain America, and we see a snippet of the Battle of New York scene. All of the Avengers are current (on-stage costume interpretations), together with Loki, and a few deep cuts just like the civilians he saves within the finale.
However we very practically bought a Captain America musical for actual. Again within the late Eighties, Marvel was engaged on a $4 million musical extravaganza in regards to the hero. According to GamesRadar, this could have seen ‘John Rogers’ (performed by John Callum) struggling a midlife disaster and having to rescue his Presidential candidate girlfriend from the Lincoln Memorial.

The villain was a cosmetics CEO with a secret terrorist cell below his management (shades of Catwoman…) and songs included “Fly the Flag”, “No one Requested Me to Lead a Parade This Yr”, “Each Methods”, and ‘The First Presidential.”
One of many writers described it as:
“That is primarily a love story a few man who’s at all times been sturdy, unbiased – even macho – and a delicate, assertive, vibrant, and political lady.”
There have been a handful of take a look at performances to try to increase cash to take it large, however curiosity was restricted and the undertaking fizzled. It was killed off for good when Marvel was acquired by an funding group owned by cosmetics CEO Ron Perelman who wished to save cash and stamped it out. Probably he was additionally aggravated on the villain being primarily him, however we will by no means know.
Let’s hope we get to see extra of Rogers: The Musical when Hawkeye arrives on Disney Plus on November 24.
