A new clip from Marvel’s Hawk Eye landed and it was revealed that Clint Barton was the least popular Avenger. No, really. Since then The Avengers, the skilled archer is the underdog of the team, with a reputation in general as the least-loved of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Well, hopefully the upcoming Disney Plus TV series will change that, but first, it seems to hint at Clint’s real-world reputation in a sly way.
This 34-second clip shows Jeremy Renner’s Barton and Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop walking through NYC when a kid screams he’s seen a superhero. Clint turns around expecting to greet the boy when it turns out he’s actually talking about some street performer in cosplay.
Despite having Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, and Captain America, there’s no Hawkeye among them. There is an archer, but as Clint pointed out, it is The Hunger Games‘Katniss Everdeen. Like Kate said, it sounds like Barton has a branding problem.
This clip is an effective advertisement for the series as it also neatly summarizes its premise. When Kate mentioned Clint’s branding issue, he suggested that his problem was hers because Kate’s decision to wear his Ronin costume led to her being the target of other people. assassin. Clint went on to say that he’s determined to get this resolved today so he can spend Christmas with his wife and kids. But something tells us that things will not go so smoothly.
What with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier And to a lesser extent WandaVision, Disney Plus shows seem to be particularly interested in exploring how wide-eyed the world is about these heroes, which is something the movies generally don’t care about. In Hawk Eye, it looks like it would make it clear that Clint’s popularity isn’t as high as the rest of the Avengers. But maybe it’s the promise that he’ll do something to win the public’s love by the end of the show.
Hawk Eye premieres with the first two episodes next Wednesday, November 24 on Disney Plus.
