Why Is Hawkeye A Disney+ Show Instead Of A Movie?
Originally, at one point down the road, Hawkeye was set to be a movie. Ideally, the concept of a Hawkeye movie might seem strange, but if you got a smaller, more intimate narrative and a sharp director on-board, I think it might work. Alas, these plans were scrapped whenever producer Kevin Feige decided to make Hawkeye a Disney+ series instead, which Renner was on-board with (even despite his busy schedule at the time). Since we don’t know a lot about Hawkeye other than the premise, which reportedly involves the title character training Kate Bishop to take over the Hawkeye reigns, what makes this premise sound more show-worthy than movie-worthy?
The story sounds isolated from other MCU-related events, which suggests that it’ll be a tighter, more compact story. Therefore, what makes Hawkeye worth multiple half-hour/hour-long episodes instead of a two-hour runtime?
