Hawkeye reinvents an Avenger and introduces a new Marvel star

Remember 2020, when Marvel Studios didn’t release anything new all year? Before there was ever a TV show that connected to the sprawling superhero franchise? It’s hard to recall a year later. As 2021 comes to a close, Disney is back in the Marvel business, with three new MCU movies out and a fourth still to come. And, after the January debut of Wandavision, Disney Plus has unleashed multiple MCU shows including Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and What If…?. But while you might have some very reasonable Marvel fatigue, the studio’s final 2021 show, Hawkeye, is here to charm and delight even the most cynical viewers.

Based on the fan-favorite comic series by David Aja and Matt Fraction, the fun-filled first two episodes of Hawkeye introduce viewers to Hailee Steinfeld’s magnificent new MCU hero, Kate Bishop. She’s key to what makes the show work, and is very much the star. While we get some really great Clint moments in these episodes (no, seriously), Jonathan Igla (Bridgerton, Sorry for Your Loss) has created a show about passing the torch from one generation to the next, and at the heart of that is Kate Bishop. Kate has been delighting comic-book readers since she debuted in 2005’s Young Avengers #1. And if the opening episodes of Hawkeye are anything to go by (Marvel only provided the show’s premiere for an early look), Steinfeld’s version of the character will only widen the younger Hawkeye’s fanbase. Playing things relatively safe by MCU TV standards, the show has a simple setup: at a vital moment in MCU history, a young Kate was inspired by a personal tragedy and Hawkeye’s heroics.
