The first reactions to Marvel Studios‘ newest series Hawkeye have arrived. Yesterday, certain media members who were allowed to watch the first two episodes of the Disney+ show were given the green light to post their reactions online. As usual, they’re mostly positive.
A common theme in the reviews is the praise given to the newest member of the MCU, Kate Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld). Critics seem to already love her chemistry with Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton. One person even described it as “PERFECTION”.
The most interesting review I saw was the show being described as “the closest thing Marvel Studios has made to the Marvel Netflix shows.” What’s funny is there have been rumors that Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise his Wilson Fisk (AKA Kingpin) role from Daredevil. It’s more than likely that he was trying to say that the show is darker in tone than previous ones, but I guess will just have to wait and see what he meant.
The first two episodes of Hawkeye will be available for the rest of us to watch on November 24th.
