Hawkeye would be cool with his own Netflix show, if you're listening Netflix
If you spent all weekend binging Daredevil Season 2, now you know that there is no more Daredevil to watch. There’s not even any more Jessica Jones until sometime next year (maybe). The next Marvel show we’re going to get on the streaming service will be Luke Cage on September 30th, and right now, that seems so faaaaaaaaaaar away. Don’t you wish there were MORE Marvel Netflix shows to watch? Yeah, so does Jeremy Renner, and now he’s campaigning for his own Hawkeye show.
Um, yes please.
Over the weekend at the Silicon Valley Comic Con, Renner was asked if he’d be down to ever do a Hawkeye show (since we know he’s, sadly, never going to get a stand-alone movie). Instead of avoiding the question, like so many Marvel stars do when asked about upcoming things, Renner was a straight shooter. He’s game.
“[Netflix is] actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world,” He told the crowd. “I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you’re doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I’d be open to it.”
Renner was quick to add, “These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it. Not up to me, though.”
Too bad it’s not up to us, either, because this show would already be in production and hitting the streaming site like, yesterday. Because, do you know what a Hawkeye series would mean? Two very important words: LINDA. CARDELLINI.
Can’t you just imagine the intense character ~drama~ that would come out of Hawkeye trying to balance his Avenger life, and his home life? Cardellini made a very surprise appearance during Age of Ultron, as Hawkeye’s very secret wife, Laura Barton. And was that time at the Barton farmhouse both the weirdest, and the best, part of the whole movie? Now imagine 13 hour-long episodes of just that! Hawkeye trying to save the world, and then Hawkeye trying to fix his broken tractor!
Echoing Renner, it’s not up to him, or to us, to make this show a reality. But if Netflix is curious, we’d binge this ridiculously fast.
