There will be no hard-edged shows on Disney+. And I'm fine with that - kids love the MCU, let it stay within that range.

I was actually surprised with the scene with Ronin in the garage, a bit more CGI bloody than I expected, with one guy visibly stabbed through.
Spoiler! :
Which makes me think that it wasn't Clint - that was maybe a bit too brutal for our hero, even when he was in Ronin mode - to show and not just imply.

The walking dead is on Disney+ in the UK, they have no issue with violence/gore on their streaming service.
If you mean they wouldn’t have a ‘hard edge’ mcu show, sure they would. They’d just market it differently.

Fair enough about Disney+ UK, but Disney+ US is PG-13/TV-14 max. Hulu is where they put R/TV-MA stuff in the US - for instance Deadpool is on Hulu.

I suspect if they ever get the Netflix shows they will be placed on Hulu, where they also have put MODOK and Hit Monkey.

But I doubt they will do anything in continuity for the MCU beyond PG-13. There is no real upside to doing so.

I like the Antman vibe to this show. Track Suit Mafia are both goofy and enough of a threat. I’m so sick of the world ending threat stories.

Moments like Clint talking to his son on the phone is story telling gold. Really enjoying this smaller story. The Fraction story did have insane comic booky moments like Madame Mask and the video tape auction but Clint hanging out having a beer with his building mates, fighting for them against those Track Suit Mafia thugs, and Kate and he just interacting…

I ♡ this!

Thwipp!

The goofy tone fits the Kate character. This show is more of a launching pad for her. With Kate, it has to be a fun, family-friendly series. She uses 'home alone' antics in her fight scenes, and the tracksuit mafia are dumb as bricks.

They managed to make Kate far more likeable here than in the comics, which is impressive because conceptually the character is a tough sell. She has a bright future if they continue 'Hawkeye' for future seasons.

They'll need a 'harder edge' show whenever they launch Daredevil and Punisher. Maybe Blade and Werewolf By Night will set the precedent for it.

Ok, huge brain prediction. The watch belongs to Laura, who turns out to be former Shield agent Bobbi Morse.

Why would the watch have been at Avengers HQ? I'm wondering if it isn't Natasha's.

What language were they speaking to negate the kids hearing, despite the kids obviously knowing what she said?

Damn, each episode is gold! I really, really love this series. There's obviously so much more to
Spoiler! :
Clint's wife, Laura. She must have worked for SHIELD getting all the intel she does and the languages she speaks.
I wish the Disney + stuff had been around since the beginning. Characters get so much more fleshed out here, to help us care for them even more. Great stuff!

That would be interesting, I assume the watch is Laura's as well. Maybe she was undercover in the Kingpin org at one point?

If they went the Bobbi Morse route it would put another nail in Agents of SHIELD being MCU cannon-adjacent in later seasons.

Fun episode even if it didn't go anywhere surprising.

I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying this show. I've never cared much for Hawkeye but it's very well done, especially the action scenes. They're doing a great job making me care about everyone.

It was only 'yesterday' they were tied up by the Tracksuits, right? How does Echo already know who Clint's familymembers are? SHIELD's Witness Protection Program is kinda shit, it seems.
