So the newest Disney+ MCU show is upon us, and on the eve of its premiere, I figured I'd star the thread. Personally, I've kept up with some of the promo material and have some knowledge of the characters going in, but it'll be interesting to see how it all shakes down, especially given some of the characters' (like Echo) comic counterparts and their relationships with other heroes/villains that may or may not appear in this show (like Kingpin).

I'm just excited to see Hailee Steinfeld in the MCU, and I kind of hope this show paves the way for the Young Avengers finally starting up now that we've seen Elijah Bradley (in TFATWS), Kid Loki (in Loki), and Tommy and Billy Maximoff (in WandaVision), with a new Cassie Lang coming up in Quantumania, plus possibly including other young heroes like Ms. Marvel and Iron Heart (both coming to Disney+).

As for Hawkeye himself, it'll be fun to see him finally break out into a lead role, and I'm interested in learning more about MCU Hawkeye.

The comic series this is based off of is fantastic, so I am really looking forward to the show.  Plus, from the previews, it appears to have a Shane Black-esque, Christmas-set-action-movie vibe that I'm digging.

Watched the first two episodes and really enjoyed it! Hailee is amazing and getting more of Jeremy as Clint Varton is always good. Hard to believe he's been at this for a solid decade now since Thor!

I have suspicions about Elenor Bishop and Kate's dad's death. Also, they're really leaning into the Jack-killed-his-uncle narrative that I think it's a red herring.

Cannot wait for more! The dynamic between Kate and Clint is just beginning but I've been enjoying it so far! I had no idea Kate was so skilled, she's got trophies for days!

Came in here just to call out the LARP scene. Absolute classic!

Hailee's comedic chops are quite good. This whole thing is going to be very tongue-in-cheek. Nice to have some levity.

This show is awesome!  Love, love, LOVE it so far, after these first two episodes. 

Opening it up by tying her origin to the battle of NY was a really great move and set a nice tone.  And speaking of tone, I like the overall light tone of this, as well as the holiday season tie-in.  It is very lighthearted, along the lines of the Ant Man films, but seems pretty grounded and everyday, which is cool.

Lalo was great, the guy just oozes charisma. Kate is cool, the tone seems at times home alone-ish. Wonder of it's because it's in NYC and Christmas. Either way. I'm interested but it's kinda just there for me.

Was reading up on the comic version of Echo, and in the books her father is a soldier of Kingpin. Wouldn't it be epic if they made her father Wesley?
