Hawkeye’s Producer Explained That Surprising Phase One MCU Link

Hawkeye Avengers Scene: How the Show Links Back to 2012 Film

[Note: To be fair, in the show the arrow that saves Kate happens right before the jump and in the clip above you clearly see that didn’t happen. Thankfully, it’s a movie and he fired a lot of arrows so we suspend disbelief a bit.]

So they had a moment linking a young Kate to Hawkeye that everyone would recognize. Now, it had to be flipped. “We wanted to figure how do we get Kate’s perspective on it?” Tran continued. “How does she witness something like this that forever changed who she thinks she wants to become and start training in archery and wanting to learn and do what she does? So that moment just made perfect sense in terms of how it fits within Kate’s story in terms of the timeline, and in terms of how old she is in the present day as well, too. And like I said, the lens through her and her perspective pushing her to want to learn archery is that moment that I think everybody really remembers from the first Avengers.”

And because Marvel was linking back to one of its own movies, the process wasn’t as difficult as one might think. “The footage is actually from he first Avengers movie, so it was really going through and figuring out what moments we haven’t seen yet and how we can pull that into the world of Kate and creating it from her perspective,” Tran said. “And and some of them were obviously CG shots that we had created in this particular series as well. But most importantly, all of our storylines and all of our series are connected and this was our way into the MCU.”


One that fits so perfectly, and tapped that vein of of nostalgia so poignantly, it made me a little emotional. The first two episodes of Hawkeye are now on Disney+.
