The Marvel Cinematic Universe, after taking over the big screens, is now lording over streaming through their very own television shows on Disney plus and it shows bits of the stories we don’t get to see in the movies. Whilst being like a film, each of it is cut through various episodes released every week. As for the latest show, Hawkeye, is it canon to the MCU?
Is Hawkeye Canon to the MCU?
Hawkeye is best known as the Avenger with the bow and arrow, and with an impeccable accuracy on all his targets, rarely missing at all. While he does not have powers like the other half of the OG team nor the others who just became part of it, Hawkeye is the heart and soul of the Avengers, the humanity within each of them, the one who keeps them grounded. With his family, they are reminded that there is more to life than just being a hero.
Since his debut in the MCU, he carries with him his bow and arrow plus amazing skills of targeting and almost never missing at all. Most importantly, he is blunt with words and he speaks the truth as straight as possible that even if it is painful, he will tell it to you right in your face. Honest to goodness, he will definitely pep talk you if needed.
With this, his first solo outing in his titular show is definitely canon to the MCU. It tells his story after the blip and how his retirement with his family was interrupted when Kate Bishop donned his Ronin suit and faced his foes at the darkest time of his life. His kids go home and his wife is waiting for him to arrive for the holidays, he sorts things out and tries to come home as soon as possible.
Jeremy Renner returns as Hawkeye with Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Fra Fee as The Clown, Tony Dalton as Swordsman, Alaqua Cox as Echo/ Maya Lopez, and Zach McClarnon as William Lopez. Florence Pugh will be reprising her role as Yelena Belova after her debut in Black Widow.
Hawkeye premieres with two episodes on November 24, 2021 exclusively on Disney Plus.
