With the success of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and the anticipation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Netflix is building a piece of the Marvel Universe that fans love. And with Hawkeye being one Avenger who doesn’t have powers and isn’t on the same level as some of his teammates, many fans have claimed they would enjoy seeing Hawkeye get his own Netflix series.
When Jeremy Renner was asked his thoughts of a ‘Hawkeye’ series at Silicon Valley Comic Con, he had this to say:
“I think that’s actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it.”
If Jeremy Renner and Marvel fans are in favor of Hawkeye getting his own Netflix series, perhaps Marvel will look into the project. Seeing as it has already been said by Marvel, a Black Widow solo film is unlikely to happen, which means a Hawkeye solo film is just as unlikely. As Renner stated, this would give deeper insight to Barton’s personal life, and maybe even some of his origin on the road to becoming one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Through the course of 13 or so, 1-hour long episodes of a Marvel Netflix series, the viewers get to feel like they really know the characters, whereas with movies fans are only getting to see the characters for about two hours on screen, and that’s it for about two years, maybe less depending on when different solo movies come out and crossovers that may occur. Nevertheless, characters on the big screen are not as developed as ones on Netflix. Also, after seeing more of Clint Barton’s personal life in Age of Ultron, fans thoroughly enjoyed seeing the ‘family man’ side of him, so it’s safe to assume it would be well-received to see more of that played out through a Netflix series.
What do you guys think? Do you want to see Jeremy Renner Appear as Hawkeye on Netflix? Or should he stay solely in film? Let us know in the comments!
