    I like that it has a lighter comic tone. Seems like it might be sort of inline with the Netflix Marvel shows, like Jessica Jones.

    Then I guess you'll hate Shang-Chi, rings or no rings. Also Bruce Lee movies, etc. And that's fine. But some of us like to dream around the edges of human potential. (Re Cap, @jsmeeker is already alluding to the Super Soldier Serum.)

    Casting directors clearly don't agree, given how many action roles Jeremy Renner has won. And in this show he's supposed to be more of a dad bod type taking on a young protégé, and at age 50 I'd say yes he's ready for that role now.

    Also, Renner was cast 10 years ago. It's not like he was just cast now.

    No sign of Linda Cardinelli so far. That's disappointing.

    I never really liked Hawkeye much. Though the teaser makes me more interested. I suspect as I watch more, I'll begin to like him more, just like Wanda.

    Since Hawkeye is 6 episodes, it'll be very hard for her to appear in 8.

    Yeah, I hadn't previously looked at the IMDb casting page. It would be highly unusual for a show to have 10 "series regulars" that appear in every episode (whether that's 6 or 8). I now agree that the numbers on that page are just speculative.

    Rumors of Kingpin and Matt Murdoch, played by their Netflix Marvel actors, in either hawkeye or Spider-Man. Nothing confirmed.

    A breakdown video I watched certainly pushes that rumor/theory using all sorts of evidence linked to comics.

    There's an Echo series coming up, and she has some ties to Kingpin in the comics as well.

    They wanted you to be able to keep the wake word at Alexa without it going off every 2 minutes, so no

    I really hope they bring Daredevil back, but they'd seriously have to dial back the violence for Disney+. It was by far the best of the Marvel series on Netflix. I think the statute of limitations may be over that was imposed on Marvel by Netflix after the shows were canceled. I believe that Marvel could not re-introduce the characters in any format until two years after Netflix dropped them per their contract agreement. I wouldn't mind seeing more of Jessica Jones too. Luke Cage was OK, but only so-so. The first season of Iron Fist was totally forgettable, but it got much better in the 2nd season. The Defenders episodes were kinda lame. They really needed to develop the characters more and get a better script for the series. It was a bit of a letdown after building up the other characters for the 2nd tier Avengers.

    In any case, I'm looking forward to seeing Hawkeye. I've never been a huge fan of any masked vigilante that used a bow and arrow that never seemed to run out of arrows. It's like the gangster movies where they keep shooting and never run out of bullets or have to reload. Marvel tends to keep everything on the lighter side and make it entertaining as well as having a lot of action. They just keep doing everything right. It should be a lot of fun.

    Why pick on the non-super guys? None of the feats by any character in a Marvel movie are remotely plausible. That's part of the fun.

    I'd never heard of Hailee Steinfeld before watching Bumble Bee. She did a very good job on that movie so I expect her to do well in this one too
