Quick Hitters - Hawkeye No More, Disney Breaks Up With Netflix, & Good Omens With The Odd Hair
Hawkeye No More?
Courtesy of his Instagram, we know that Hawkeye, aka Jeremy Renner, is sporting a new haircut on the set of Avengers 4. No big deal, right? Not so fast. It's his fancy new do that is at the center of a rumor about Clint Barton. MCU Exchange is reporting that Clint will be adopting an all-new "superhero" persona.
Apparently, Clint is going to go through some shit in Infinity War and the events of that film will leave him in a pretty dark place, hence the transformation into Ronin. Ronin is a masked ass-kicker that favors samurai swords and general badassery.
$5 says he loses one member of, if not his whole family. Sucks, I know, but what else could possibly happen to rive Clint off the deep end? He's lost friends and teammates before and largely been OK, so whatever it is, it will be really fucked up.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on May 4, 2018 and Avengers 4 is out on May 3, 2019. Can we just call Avengers 4, "New Avengers" yet?
Disney Breaks Up With Netflix
What a long strange trip it's been.
Disney CEO Bob Iger recently revealed the films and shows that belong to Marvel & Star Wars will soon no longer be available on Netflix, as they will be moving to Disney's own direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019. Not really a huge deal, right? Well, in an exciting bit of news it turns out that Disney will also be making original content for the service.
Iger revealed the studio will be producing a few original films and TV shows that will be available on the streaming service, which will be in addition to almost 500 films and 7,000 episodes of TV shows.
Now, I don't know about you, but I'll have very limited reason to hang on to Netflix once this move happens. Especially, given that the Disney streaming service will also feature brand-new content. Fingers crossed for some live-action Star Wars shows or an expanded "Defenders" Universe.
