Captain America’s Musical continues Hawkeye Phase 1 insult

Hawkeye’s Captain America musical showcases the powers of the other Avengers, but it falls back on a Phase 1 insult from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Warning: SPOILERS for Hawk Eye episode 2.

Rogers: the musical, the Captain America themed show in Hawk Eye, pays homage to several Avengers, but it also falls on an insult from Clint Barton Phase 1. In Hawk Eye, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) abruptly changes his vacation plans with his family after Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) picked up his old Ronin suit from a black market auction. Bishop, a fully-fledged skilled archer, dons the costume after the auction attack and fights off the attackers. Unfortunately, wearing the costume puts it on the wrong side of the enemies Barton / Hawkeye created as Ronin. Now Barton has to get Bishop out of trouble before he can continue the vacation.


The Captain America musical hasn’t always been in Hawk Eye. Recently, director Rhys Thomas said the idea is why Hawkeye and his kids are in New York City. Although the director tried to reverse the original suggestion, Kevin Feige loved the concept of a musical. The Marvel boss then brought in composer Marc Shaiman, whom he had met at an event. Soon there was a Broadway-style song in the universe called “Save The City” for Rogers: the musical.

Hawkeye doesn’t have a lot of respect in the Captain America musical. Barton takes his kids to the New York Broadway show in the Hawk Eye premiere, watching the actors sing the Avengers battle against Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on stage. The song celebrates most of the Avengers, honoring the strength of Chris Evans’ Captain America, Chris Hemsworth‘s divine powers of Thor, and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark’s Iron Man costume abilities. However, Hawkeye’s lyrics are less flattering, saying: “Hawkeye looks cool, like a really nice guy. “It’s an insult to an Avenger who has saved the world on multiple occasions, fighting for humanity since the beginning of the MCU.


Hawkeye is often overlooked in the MCU, and the Captain America musical continues. As one of the only all-human Avengers, Hawkeye isn’t usually at the top of fan favorites lists. While Thor is a god and Captain America is nearly invincible, Hawkeye’s primary power is to shoot arrows. The character even recognizes his limitations in Avengers: Age of Ultron, highlighting the absurdity of the assault on Ultron (James Spader). “The city is flying, we are fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrows “, he says. Unfortunately, by ignoring Hawkeye’s abilities and simply calling him a “nice guy, “ Rogers: the musical Hawkeye’s biggest MCU review continues, showing the character is out of place on the Superhuman team.

Although Hawk Eye continues a continuous insult from Clint Barton, the moment is needed to change the perception of the world of the character. In the Hawk Eye First, the Captain America musical neglects the character’s abilities. Then, in episode 2, Hawkeye is abandoned on the street by a kid who wants to meet a superhero and instead goes to actors in costumes. But, despite everything that happens, Hawkeye’s true exploits still shine. His actions against Loki in The Avengers inspired Kate Bishop to become a hero herself, and his humanity connects him best to the very people he saves. He is “costs” and one “really nice guy,” corn Hawk Eye shows that it is also much more than that.
