At this point, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown so large and varied that it doesn''t look like the weather in Florida. Here''sHawkeye, a stripped-down street-level adventure full of wise-cracking heroes andfull-on comic setpieces.
The entire television series, which features Jeremy Renners, gives Hawkeye his own solo exhibit, while also introducing a new hero to his codename: Kate Bishop. In the movie, Kate is introduced in a flashback to the Battle of New York from the originalAvengersfilm, where she is saved from the worst by who else? Renners Hawkeye. Can you blame her when she decides right then and there to take up archery?
Kates began outbursts at school and with her mother, Vera Farmiga, who was widowed in the Battle of New York, and now runs a high-tech security company. Through a fun, a secret black market auction for high-priced superhero memorabilia, including the Ronin costume and sword worn by Hawkeye during his dark period inAvengers: Endgame.

Certain factors, however, are a little unsettling, as a result of why Kate fails to wear a Ronin suit instead of calling Clint on the phone once a week to check in. A line of dialogue provides an excuse for her absence, but it still
Both Renner and Steinfeld are very admirable in this series, and they quickly make a likable pair of mismatched friends in the midst of outrageous action and stunts. In this episode, Steinfeld is instantly a natural at the default Marvel mode of dry, witty banter. In the midst of outrageous action and stunts, she is off to a great start.
Renners'' role is a bit less poignant, but he does have some nice moments of his own. The Ronin suit eventually winds up at a LARPers convention, which allows Clint to investigate it in costume, and it leads to one of Marvel''s most enjoyable sequences in a long time. (These and other unusual moments bear the influence of comics writer Matt Fraction, who wrote the bestHawkeye comic that was never published by Marvel a few years ago and serves as a consultant
The recurring role of Hawkeyeis is still establishing key members of the series.Eleanors'' new boyfriend Jack (Tony Dalton) seems to be bad news and will soon add another Marvel hero to the Disney+ series, which will then be launched in the first two episodes.
