“Gavião Arqueiro”: the director reveals which NOL films inspired the series

Since the release of the first trailer for “Hawk Hawk”, the series has been compared to the movie “Tough to Kill”, for showing Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) running away from bad guys in New York City at Christmas.

A plot similar to the film with Bruce Willis, interpreter of the iconic John McClane.

In an interview with Comic Book, “Hawk Archer” director Rhys Thomas brought up the topic and agreed to the comparisons.

He even said that “Hard to Kill” was the main inspiration for the show.

However, he also said that more Christmas classics could be added to the list.

“People have told me that the show is very reminiscent of ‘Hard to Kill’, and it’s true because that movie was my main inspiration. But I can’t forget ‘They Forgot Me’, both 1 and 2, there are also references to “Gremlins” … “

He continued:

“I am the type of person who enjoys paying homage to other productions, whether or not there is a direct reference, I accept any excuse to probe my cultural memory and disseminate elements of classical works in my productions. “

Apparently the series is a mix of ’80s and’ 90s Christmas movies, now it remains to be seen which and how many references will be hidden in the plot.

Remember that ‘Gavião Arqueiro’ is now available in the Disney + catalog.

The long-awaited series with Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld has just started and is already bearing fruit.

At Rotten Tomatoes, production started with 85% approval, scoring 7.60 / 10 based on 33 reviews to date.

Disney + and Marvel Studios invite you to an unexpected end-of-year getaway with ‘Gavião Arqueiro’, a new series set after the New York City crash. Former avenger Clint Barton (Renner) has a seemingly simple mission: to return to his family for Christmas. Possible? Perhaps with the help of Kate Bishop (Steinfeld), a 22-year-old archer who dreams of becoming a superhero. The two are forced to work together as a presence from Barton’s past threatens to destroy more than the festive atmosphere.

In addition to Steinfeld and Renner, Florence Pugh will reprise her role as Yelena Belova, a younger version of Black Widow. Vera Farmiga (“Summon of Evil”) will assume the role of Eleanor Bishop.

Fra Fee will play a character named Kazi, possibly a reference to Kazimierz Kazimierczak, better known as the Mercenary Evil Clown. Tony Dalton and Alaqua Cox complete the cast.
