I don’t think he’s meant to be that Wilson Fisk though, not the one from the Netflix show.
He rips the door off a car. Throws people around like rag dolls. Shakes off an arrow to the heart and being blasted through a window by a fucking car.
That’s not the down to earth, emotionally torn up, rage monster from the… Read more
as for jack being a good guy or bad guy? the answer is yes. (his character waffled back and forth in the comics)
And let’s be clear about who she framed: Her own, apparently innocent fiance. Once Kate learned that he was truly just a nice guy who loved her mother and wanted to be a good stepdad, her mother’s betrayal might even feel worse than knowing her mother was responsible for Armand’s death. Read more
Kingpin has a history of preferring to beat his former employees to death. While he does hire assassins a lot, he has regularly killed people with his bare hands to make a point, especially when it comes to people who have failed him or try to get one over on him.
I mean, Yelana is not a stupid person. No way she didn’t figure that sacrifice out in the first place. And no way Yelana couldn’t kill Clint if she wanted to—a sniper rifle at 1000 yards is pretty quick and avoids all the hand to hand messiness.
No, whether she said it out loud or not, she wanted a reason not to take… Read more
I agree with the lack of discretion criticism, but Eleanor is presumably a valuable and high-ranking operative (hence needing a personal touch - MCU Kingpin is sentimental compared to the comics). It’s also possible, given her daughter and choice of fiancé, that she’s a dangerous combatant who an ordinary goon… Read more
Clint’s smile when she was telling him how much he inspired her was the most wholesome moment in the whole season (by which I mean full holiday season, not just season one of this show). People take the piss out of him a bit at times, but Renner can do a lot with a little in terms of acting and the way he sold that… Read more
Assuming this isn’t the exact same character from the Netflix shows my take is that this is Fisk when he’s still building up his power base. Even the way he dressed was different than the precise almost OCD way he dressed in the Netflix shows. Him deciding to take out Eleanor himself was about sending a message that… Read more
The end of the penultimate episode had me worried there was too much to resolve in one episode. I was surprised, however, that the finale dropped its ball the least of the Disney+ series. Some of the narratives could’ve benefited from an extra episode or two, but the quick pacing was preferable to a Netflix…
I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t immediately happen - Yelena just makes herself at home at the Bishop house while Kate is at the farm and greets a surprised Kate with “Hello Roommate” upon return. Read more
I enjoyed Hawkeye a lot - Jeremy Renner had originally signed for a solo movie but they did this show instead and I’m glad they did. It brought a lot more to Clint’s character and Kate was a phenomenal addition. And compared to the other Marvel shows, I think it hit the sweet spot in terms of “telling a new story” and… Read more
