HAWKEYE "Honest Trailer" Makes ARROW Comparisons And Likens Kingpin's Role To Darth Maul

Screen Junkies has released their "Honest Trailer" for Hawkeye, and the Disney+ series comes under fire for putting the spotlight on Clint Barton, similarities to Arrow< and not enough Yelena Belova...

Hawkeye concluded its six-episode run last month, and the show received an extremely positive response from fans and critics alike. It wasn't necessarily perfect (it might take a while before we can forgive Marvel Studios for that post-credits scene), but there was a lot to love about the Christmastime adventure.

The Screen Junkies team don't appear to have been too impressed, however, as this latest "Honest Trailer" is surprisingly harsh with its judgement of the Disney+ series. 

Poor Clint Barton is mercilessly mocked as the lamest Avenger, and while the trailer finds some nice things to say about Kate Bishop, it also points out that she's a "milestone of representation" because the archer is "the first hero to think Hawkeye is cool." In addition, the new Hawkeye doesn't escape being compared to Arrow's Oliver Queen as a vigilante with blatantly villainous parents.

Most of the observations here are tongue in cheek, though, like Clint being the "most 'over it' Avenger [who] has heard enough of your sh*t."

However, the most astute criticism here has to be how Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin of Crime was seemingly wasted on a one-off appearance that draws comparisons to Star Wars: The Phantom Menace's use of Darth Maul. We are hopeful Wilson Fisk will return in Echo, of course, but nothing is confirmed.
