    The trailer looks good. I also like that they seem to be including the detail of Clint having hearing aids.

    Really? I was thinking Die Hard! (Hopefully we will have some jokes....and if we get a Reginald Vel Johnson Cameo...)

    Well I knew that just from your avatar, I didn't even look at your current user name. Strange how the mind works.

    As to those numbers, I forgot the purge.

    I registered malonga back in 1998 or 1999, the last years of DS9, and then posted something for some years and then went away for a decade and when I came back*, I couldn't use malonga anymore (and I didn't know, that "malanga" was a word for a tall Caribbean plant. The more macOS auto-corrects, the more frustrated you get and the more you learn.

    As to the topic, I liked the tone of the the trailer, though I also liked the tone for Falcon and the Winter Soldier trailers, but was not overly fond of the series unlike WandaVision and Loki. Anyway, good times to have so much stuff to amuse ourselves to death with.

    * As I just saw from this post, I came back at the beginning of 2008. Hmm, that was probably before the purge and I couldn't find the email data for my account back then, as I probably had several email accounts in my 25 years on this wide web of wonder (though the wonder is gone now somehow).

    How funny is it that Hawkeye's best hero moment isn't even him shooting an arrow?

    That's not even the pinnacle.

    In the comics his house gets assaulted and he is pinned down in the kitchen. After exhausting the obvious weapons like kitchen knives he begins pulling his fingernails to launch at his attackers' throats and kills/incapacitates several of them ( yeah i know but it's comic book superheroes, logic and realism is not in demand there ;) )

    Linda Cardellini confirmed!! Thank the gods!

    Also, I think this is the first time we've heard that two episodes will be released on the first day.

    They probably did this so the Hawkeye finale doesn’t drop in the same day as the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett. Good movie.

    Nice to know Linda Cardellini will be back. Have we heard if they will be introducing Clint's brother from the comics?

    They only did it because now someone is going to have to watch television in the spare room on Thanksgiving. Family conflict stories await.

    I wonder if they'll bring up ANY of Comic Clints' backstory here. The MCU version comes off of less as a "Circus Archer turned Vigilante" and more "Army guy who got recruited into SHIELD".

    IMDB keeps me from going "where have I seen here before?" until my heads spins. Hailee was in Pitch Perfect 2 & 3!
