Marvel Studios pretty much proved this year that there's no such thing as "superhero fatigue" and even though fans went through a 500-day content drought thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, that wasn't enough to keep them away. That said, this year alone marked the studio's official transition to streaming which kicked off last January with WandaVision. It felt like a huge gamble during the time bringing in some of the biggest MCU stars to streaming but so far, Disney+'s Marvel shows are performing extremely well.
We've already gotten ourselves four shows this year and in two months, the MCU will be bringing some much-needed live-action back to the small screen with the release of the standalone Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld. Initially, fans weren't all that crazy about the upcoming series but according to new data from Whip Media (via The Direct), Hawkeye is currently on track to become more popular than shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
In fact, the show which will revolve around Clint Barton's solo adventures as an ex-Avenger is currently on par with Loki in terms of fan hype and anticipation. The show is also expected to surpass the Tom Hiddleston-led series' in terms of audience interest.

Of course, MCU fans have different reasons for their excitement about Hawkeye but I'm guessing it's luring more fans ahead of its premiere because of the recent rumors surrounding the reemergence of Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin. Aside from that, the show will also mark another passing of the torch as Clint will meet his successor Kate Bishop who will later take on the Hawkeye mantle.
Hawkeye will begin streaming on November 24 only on Disney+.
