    Hawkeye, the final original Avenger to receive his own solo project, will be coming to Disney Plus on November 24th.

    Reports tell us that the new show will be loosely based on Matt Fraction's award-winning run from back in 2012 and will be introducing Kate Bishop, the second Hawkeye and founding member of the Young Avengers, to the MCU.

    We also know that...

    Natasha's sister Yelena will come gunning for Clint.

    Here's an exclusive first look from EW...

    Curious how we still don't know how many episodes will be in this series, even though we know the numbers for a bunch of the shows that will come out next year. Not a big deal but it's strange that information is out yet.

    I’m guessing 6 episodes like FaWS and LokI.

    Yeah, that's what I'm figuring, too, but it's still weird that it hasn't been announced.

    Yeah, for a show coming out in 4 months, we really don't have a lot of information.
    How long before their releases did we get trailers for the other Disney+ series?

    I wonder if it is possible that something in Shang-Chi relates to this series and so we are only getting scant information?

    "I have a bow and arrow, none of this makes sense!" - Clint has way cooler lines than that green pretender boy :lol:

    "Pretender"? Hawkeye was created in 1964. Green Arrow was created in... 1941. :biggrin:

    Can't wait to see the iconic duo on screen.

    (Kate Bishop and Lucky the Pizza Dog.)

    Even though Don Heck and Stan Lee are listed as Hawkeye's creators, I wonder if Jack Kirby, who had a run on Green Arrow in the 50's, had a hand in it.

    I can't shake the feeling that, having built her up into such a lovable successor to Natasha, this show's going to flip our view of Yelena Belova on its head when, without bothering to try to double-check Val's story first, she does some permanent damage to Clint - destroying his hearing (too close to an explosion?) and probably killing his wife and kids (same explosion). "You took my family, I take yours."

    They already killed his wife and kids once. Along with half of the universe.

    That wasn’t really “killing” them. Plus we all knew they were coming back.

    I doubt they'd go so far as actually killing Clint's family. When it happened in Endgame, we all knew they'd be back. I mean, it was never a question of 'if' they will undo The Snap, it was a question of 'how'. They're not going down that road again.

    No, what will be more interesting is seeing Clint interact with his wife again. He has killed before. She knows this. It was his job as a soldier and an agent. Now he killed. A lot. Sure, they were bad guys. But he killed out of revenge. To make others hurt because he got hurt. He's not the same man anymore. I honest to god hope they're not going for a the 'it's all good now' routine, but will show damage in his relationship with his wife and kids, who can tell this is not the same husband and father anymore. This man became a stone cold killer.

    I have that reaction too. DCs look alike characters are almost always the originals. I just did the same thing thinking about Niles Caulder and Charles Xavier.
