We first saw the bow-and-arrow-wielding hero in 2011’s Thor. And the last time fans saw him was when he helped Captain America, Iron Man and the rest of the team take down Thanos in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, reports Us Weekly. In the upcoming series, according to Comic Book, the show will involve Barton and Bishop working together to confront enemies of the past.
“[Kate is] a 22-year-old kid and she’s a big Hawkeye fan,” the Hurt Locker actor told Entertainment Weekly in July 2021. “She has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her, because she’s such a fangirl of Hawkeye.” He continued, “The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems that she brings into his life.”
So what do fans think about Hawkeye so far? Let's take a look at the first online reactions to the series below:
#Hawkeye opens on a really cool sequence that is super rewarding for long time MCU fans. I loved it.— BD (@BrandonDavisBD) November 11, 2021
Hailee Steinfeld is a great, energized Kate Bishop. Great new addition who hits the mark!
The future for Kate & Clint's dynamic seems really, really fun. Watched 2 eps, want 3! pic.twitter.com/BzBsuc5XmC
Hawkeye is PERFECT. 15 minutes in & I was a sobbing mess. Feels the most MCU of the Marvel shows with action & story. Great Kate Bishop introduction (@HaileeSteinfeld is AMAZING) but also the show Clint deserves. SO MANY COMIC NODS! Avengers musical in real life, please. #Hawkeye pic.twitter.com/vW6uv4jOay— Tessa Smith - Mama's Geeky (@MamasGeeky) November 11, 2021
#Hawkeye is a refreshing break from the grand-scale cosmic (and multiversal) madness we've seen from the MCU recently, going fully street-level to deliver a fun and engaging Christmas-coloured murder mystery.

#Hawkeye definitely draws a lot from the Fraction/Aja run, but in reverse: Clint has major grumpy dad energy, and Kate is a little bumbling, but makes up for it with effervescent enthusiasm and attitude. The way their dynamic unfolds is engaging, hilarious and very sweet.— Meagan Damore (@metathor) November 11, 2021
My bet is that Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop will become one of best female superhero characters in phase 4 of the MCU. Steinfeld is charming, funny and such a bad ass. She makes the character her own. I predict big things are in store for @HaileeSteinfeld in the MCU. #Hawkeye pic.twitter.com/B3nNJ4Hzc1— Scott Menzel (@ScottDMenzel) November 11, 2021
Hawkeye is good, Christmasy fun. It does feel the least ambitious of the MCU series thus far (obviously that could change after 2 episodes). Reminds me a bit of the Netflix series. Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop is a treat and I can’t wait until she meets Pugh’s Yelena. #Hawkeye pic.twitter.com/NcroguuQgK— Richard Newby (@RICHARDLNEWBY) November 11, 2021

As someone who loves the Matt Fraction and David Aja 2012 comic starring Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, the first two episodes of HAWKEYE made me so, so happy.— Hector Navarro (@Hectorisfunny) November 12, 2021
It's the best Clint has ever been in the MCU, and Kate is going to (rightfully) become everyone's new fav. PIZZA! DOG! pic.twitter.com/d3WTN964fO

#Hawkeye is classic Marvel action-adventure comedy. It leans in heavily to the joy of Christmas and the idea of family. #HaileeSteinfeld absolutely steals the show and owns the screen. pic.twitter.com/l88vdiuZmR— Neil Vagg (@neilvagg) November 11, 2021
