Magazine ‘Gavião Arqueiro’ | Marvel is still trying to figure out the format of the series in the Christmas production

Gavião Arqueiro was the last original Marvel production to arrive at Disney + in 2021. Over six episodes, the series followed the trajectory of a Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) leaving retirement to help young Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) get on with it. rid of an issue that only exists because of the hero’s past as Ronin, which resurfaces after a major misunderstanding.

Based on the comic book scene played by Matt Fraction and David Aja, the series lacks a crucial point of adaptation that directly affects the plot. Although here Gavião Arqueiro also deals with deafness, in the comic version the main characteristic of his protagonist is that he is a total failure who needs to recuperate daily to understand his role in the world. And it is the arrival of Kate who lifts him for this daily reconstruction.

At this point, the series is a lot less courageous than the comics, as it features a tired Clint in the face of grief. Thus, the construction of the character does not bring so much this human side, this imperfect side, of the hero. So much so that sometimes when he fails or needs to resort to help from ordinary people, we see something very close to the comic book and bring some really interesting moments to the character. So, still praising the Avengers archer, the board only bet on a tired hero who didn’t want to be there because he wanted to be with his family for Christmas. It’s a good approach that works, but it could be a lot more.

Unable to rely on this defeated Clint, the production tries to cast him in the supporting role, making him a secondary luxury within the series itself to present the true soul of the series: Kate Bishop of Hailee Steinfeld, who plays character and won over many fans. In the process. It was similar to what happened in the movie Black Widow, where Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) ended up being overshadowed by new Black Widow, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), who is also on the show and steals the star every time it appears. .

The relationship between the two, who exude charisma and chemistry onstage, is one of the best things about the show and serves to confirm the idea that the baton has been passed in earnest, and that they are the new duo of Gavião Arqueiro and Black Veuve from the MCU. It’s a friendship that takes shape so organically that audiences will eagerly await their next appearance.

Sadly, the series is yet another to suffer from a recurring problem that Marvel showed in this first year of series: it was not recorded in a series format.

It’s kinda weird talking like that since it was complete with six episodes and all. But if you watch it, the script structure and events of the series are typical of a 6 hour movie that was only split into six chapters. That way, there are times in some episodes where the pacing has a natural drop in for a movie, but that could never happen in a chapter of around 1 hour. Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki also suffered from this condition, specifically the God of Cheating series. Apparently the only production that really understood its format was WandaVision. It’s clear that Westview’s plot was designed chapter by chapter, and not as one movie. It might sound silly, but it’s something that compromises the experience of those who watch the show every week. Anyone who makes it to Gavião Arqueiro’s marathon in a single day is unlikely to feel much, as they will consume the production as if it were a movie, as the directors thought.

Even with these drawbacks which are normal for a studio still looking to find their way into this world of series, Gavião Arqueiro is fully aware of how far he can go without pushing the limits. Understanding their limits is an important point so that a series of them remains relevant and does not get lost along the way. Thus, they explore the issue of special arrows well and hit the mark by opting for a more urban plot, which captivates, entertains and brings Kate Bishop to the MCU.

Rating: 8
