Marvel is back on Disney+ with Hawkeye, a new series loosely inspired by the excellent Hawkeye comic book from a few years ago by Matt Fraction and David Aja. The references to that comic begin almost immediately, with opening credits clearly styled after the font and aesthetics of the covers from that Hawkeye comic.
But that’s just one of the many Easter eggs and Marvel references in the series premiere of Hawkeye. In the video below, we run through all of them, including the shoutout to Iron Man and Obadiah Stane (the tower Kate Bishop destroys is named after him), the inspiration for the very funny Rogers: The Musical Broadway show, who Eleanor’s fiancé Jack turns out to be in Marvel Comics, where Tigra might make a very subtle first appearance, and the backstory of Lucky the Pizza Dog, the one-eyed mutt who becomes Hawkeye and Hawkeye’s sidekick in the series. Watch them all below:
