Everyone was wondering that now how Marvel will bring, which can excite the fans as much as it did in its previous phases, but in Phase 4, Marvel turned out to be more substantial, and everyone believes that Marvel will grow more robust with its future projects.

One thing which Marvel did absolutely correct is announcing Disney+ Webserieses. At first, they were not looking much appealing to the viewers, and the first 2 episodes of Wanda Vision almost killed the expectations. But only a few people knew that Marvel was just waiting for the right moment to hit it out of the park.

And Wanda Vision became a huge success, and Falcon and The Winter Soldier after that, and Loki just blew everyone’s mind away by introducing the Multiverse in the MCU. Now all eyes are rooting for the release of Marvels next project, i.e. Hawkeye Season 1.

Let’s find out if Hawkeye is worth all the expectations or not.

Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 1 falls flat for impressing hardcore Marvel fans because by judging previous Marvel series, fans expected some hardcore action stuff or some mind-blowing twists in the story, but so far, it turned out to be just a Holiday gone wrong type of story where an imposter just ruin all holiday plans of Clints’.

Though the cinematography of the series is top-notch and every frame is stunning, and we can clearly see the efforts and hard work behind it. But still, it is just the first episode of the whole series, and previously it also happened with Wanda Vision. That at first, everyone thought that it would be a dud, but later it blew everyone away.

So, there is still hope that Hawkeye Season 1 will also pick up the pace in its forthcoming episodes, and it is expected that it will also be one of the big hits from Marvel. But for now, Yes, Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 1 is one of the most mediocre projects from Marvel Studios.

Episode 2 Review: Hawkeye Season 1

Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 2 turned to be a little better than the first episode of the Hawkeye Season 1. The story seems to be progressing, and the makers are not wasting any time with any unnecessary subplots in the storyline.

Now Hawkeye Season 1 is going very smartly by ending their episodes on a cliff hangar to leave something for the viewers to keep guessing about. But still, Episode 2 does not match the standards Marvel Studios has set for their projects.

Episode 2 has lesser action than the first one, but the story seemed a bit more interesting in this episode as the viewers will be guessing that where the makers are taking the storyline and now viewers will be more excited for the future episodes of Hawkeye Season 1.

If we compare episode 2 with episode 1, then yes, episode 2 is better than the previous one, but still, it will be considered as a mediocre product from Marvel Studios, but there is still hope as more episodes are yet to come, and people have such high expectations from them.

Maya sees Ronin killing everyone inside, and by the time Maya enters the workshop, Ronin escapes from there and kills Maya’s father. Then the story transits to the current timeline of the series. Maya comes to interrogate Clint, and the client tries to make her understand that Kate is not the real Ronin, and she just accidentally put on the Ronin Costume.

Clint says that Black Widow killed Ronin, but Maya does not believe him. Clint then breaks free from there and successfully escapes from there with Kate, but Maya and the Track Suit Mafia chase them. Kate attacks them with Clint’s bow and arrows, and they manage to escape successfully from there.

Kate suggests to Clint that they should break into her mother’s place, and at Bishop Security, they can definitely find more information about Track Suit Mafia. Kate tried to bypass the security, but her account got deactivated.

Clint feels something is not right there, and then Jack Duquesne attacks Clint with the Ronin sword.

And finally, Hawkeye Season 1 started to gain its pace back, and the Episode 3 is filled with a lot of great action sequences, which is what is expected from Marvel Studios. In Episode 3, we got to see some really amazing skills of Hawkeye, which always got overlooked in previous Avengers movies.

In the episode, we got to see the real Hawkeye and how excellent and mind-blowing his Bow and Arrow skills are. Episode 3 is more like a roller coaster ride which will definitely excite the viewers and will satisfy all those who were very eagerly waiting for the series to pick up its expected pace.

Though the episode was not perfect because the storyline didn’t progress at all in this episode, but we got a lot of information about the characters of the series, and we know the exact motivation for why Track Suit Mafia is after Ronin.

Now the viewers will definitely be more excited for the upcoming episodes of the series. In simple words, Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 3 is a more typical Marvel product which is expected, and it will be interesting to look at what more this series got to offer in future episodes.

So far, Episode 3 is the best Episode of Hawkeye Season 1.
