Why a Hawkeye TV Show is Better Than a Movie According to Jeremy Renner

Jeremy Renner explains why a miniseries on Disney + is preferable to his master shooter Clint Barton aka Hawkeye as opposed to a feature film.

Jeremy Renner explains why one Hawkeye TV show is preferable to a movie. The launch of Disney + in 2019 has allowed the Marvel Cinematic Universe to expand beyond the big screen with several series dedicated to supporting characters in MCU such as Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), Vision (Paul Bettany), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie ), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). After an introduction to animation with What if…?, Marvel will return to live-action with Hawkeye debuts on November 24th.

Strongly inspired by Hawkeye comics written by Matt Fraction and illustrated by David Aja, the Disney + series picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, who watched Clint Barton (Renner) walk down a dark path like Ronin after his entire family was dusted off by Thanos’ snap. Now that Blip has brought them back, Clint only wants to spend his vacation in New York City with his wife (Linda Cardellini) and children, though he stays on a siding when confronted with enemies of the past and joins Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) to take them down.

See you on Vanity Fairs video series in which actors break down their careers, Jeremy Renner summed up everything from his Oscar-nominated performances in The Hurt Locker and The city to his popular role as Clint Barton in The Avengers and his upcoming solo series Hawkeye. While many wanted to see his character return to a solo film like his MCU counterpart, Black Widow, Renner explains why a TV series is preferable:

I was really excited about the idea of, at Disney Plus, doing as a long-form storytelling version of it. I think it’s a more accessible way to learn about a character, even to myself, because he was part of a giant universe. How do you get a little more into the real back story and the understanding of the character? Long form of storytelling in a series is a better accessible way, I think. It’s great, so we could make a six-hour movie instead of a two-hour movie.

Although Renner has portrayed MCU’s champion shooter since a coma appearance in 2011’s Thor, followed by prominent roles in team-up films such as The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War, the character has never really been in focus for any of these story lines. That has to change with his solo series on Disney +, which will also introduce Hawkeye’s young superfan and eventual successor, Kate Bishop, and another hero in Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), who gets her own solo series titled Echo.

Hawkeye will also continue the story of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) from Black widow after a post-credit scene, she put her on a collision course with Barton for his presumed role in Natasha Romanoff’s death. For example, the series will do some heavy lifting in the MCU with its various stories, then Hawkeye will definitely benefit from the 5-6 hours of playing time it will have as a miniseries on Disney + compared to a feature film’s 2 hours.
