New “Hawkeye” Video Takes You Behind-the-Scenes of Marvel’s New Dynamic Duo
We got a chance to speak with Hawkeye director and executive producer Rhys Thomas this week (we’ll publish that interview right before the show premieres), but one of the things we can share is he enthused about the comedic chemistry between Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld. “I enjoy the humor and the tone and the twists and turns that it takes,” Thomas says in this new behind-the-scenes video which looks at the relationship between Clint Barton (Renner) and his unasked-for new protegé Kate Bishop (Steinfeld). The former is, of course, the crusty old Avenger who is fresh from helping save the world against Thanos. The latter is an iconic character from the comics in her own right but making her debut appearance in the MCU.
The grumpy uncle/precocious niece chemistry that we’ve seen thus far came quite easily between the two stars, this video shows. Clint and Kate are paired up because they’re both trying to survive a relentless ambush (plenty of bad folks have plenty of reason to want Hawkeye dead) and make it through the holidays. The video reveals how Renner and Steinfeld were able to make the cast and crew giggle one moment, then watch in awe as they got into their action scenes in the next.
“Collaborating with Jeremy requires a lot more strength than I think it might look like,” Steinfeld jokes towards the end of the video. Then we see a snippet from the show where Kate Bishop borrows one of Hawkeye’s arrows and blows up a van. This series looks like a very good time.
Hawkeye hits Disney+ on November 24.
