Marvel: Woke ‘Hawkeye’ Huge Fail On Disney Plus
More bad news for Disney Plus and Marvel as it is learned the woke Hawkeye series is a huge fail and is presently performing as the worst of the live-action MCU shows on the streaming service.
Hawkeye, which stars Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop who replaces Jeremy Renner’s character in the MCU – basically a guest star on “his” own show – was watched by a whopping 40% less than Loki, the previous live-action MCU show on Disney Plus.
The info comes from Samba TV (via Deadline) who measures streaming service viewership where the first episode number for Hawkeye trails the 5-day U.S. household viewership figure for Loki by 40%.
Loki was watched by 2.5 million homes, while Hawkeye was only watched by 1.5 million U.S. households.
The number is also less than Falcon and the Winter Soldier (1.8M) and WandaVision (1.6M).
What is also alarming for Hawkeye is that the second episode saw a drop of 200k viewers – as only 1.3 million stuck around to watch Episode 2 – but both the first and second episodes were released at the same time on Disney Plus, so that means two hundred thousand Marvel fans didn’t like the first episode and decided not to watch the next episode.
The news about Hawkeye isn’t too surprising as fans don’t want their favorite original characters replaced.
I did watch the first couple of episodes and didn’t think too highly of them. I just can’t see Kate Bishop as a replacement for Clint Barton who has been basically been trained to be an assassin while Bishop received little to no training (IMO). Sure, the beginning montage showed Kate getting trained (by who?) and we were told she was, and then quite laughably we were shown her climbing buildings and fencing (really?) and beating up bad guys, but it didn’t come off as organic and didn’t sell me at all on “Kate Bishop.”
It’s just more woke content (just like the comics) to promote Hollywood’s BS agenda, and guess what? Once again, it’s a huge fail.
How do we know it’s a fail?
Again, just like Disney Star Wars, it’s all in the investor reports. Disney’s most recent investor report shows that no one is subscribing to Disney Plus. Know what that means? As confirmed by Wall Street investors, the Marvel and Star Wars brands aren’t bringing anyone into Disney Plus.
So now Disney either is going to have to rethink its strategy if it wants to compete with Netflix, or Disney Plus will fail.
Disney, here is a hint: Stop with the woke BS and stop replacing and shitting on characters as follows.
