‘Hawkeye’ writer teases lots of Easter Eggs for MCU fans



We are less than a week from the release of Hawk Eye on Disney Plus, which comes sandwiched between Eternals and Spider-Man: No Path Home, as the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes up for lost time after enduring a barren 2020.

Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld’s Fun Festive Adventure is the fifth franchise exclusive streaming of the year and the eighth total film and TV project for Kevin Feige’s team in 2021, as if you needed to more reminders that the MCU is in the midst of unstoppable expansion.

As is the case with anything from the comic book company, fans can expect plenty of Easter eggs, nods, winks, and strewn references. Hawk Eye, but lead writer Jonathan Igla admitted in an interview with Variety that they are not there just for the fun of it.

“It was a constant balancing act. It has become a bit on a case-by-case basis. If something was good enough and worth remembering, and I felt like it was going to resonate with the show, and not just something that I as a fan would enjoy recalling and revisiting, that guided him down the line.

While Hawk Eye hasn’t been a major topic of conversation among the fanbase over the past couple of days, so it’s not that there is any shame in that when the full second trailer for Spider-Man: No Path Home just dropped, we can expect the story of the MCU’s resident expert archer and his new protégé to continue to build momentum ahead of a stellar two-episode debut next Wednesday, kicking off the holiday season with style.
