Welcome to OTTplay Now You Know, the podcast that gives you lesser-known trivia and facts and even anecdotes of popular films and shows that you might not have known until now. I'm your host Nikhil.

Hawkeye is an American television action-adventure crime miniseries, created for Marvel by Jonathan Igla. This series, directed by Rhys Thomas, is the fifth show from the MCU states and picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Jeremy Renner reprises his role as Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfield joins him as Kate Bishop.

Lets dig into some trivia from the series now.

1. Jeremy Renner was initially supposed to reprise his role as Hawkeye in a feature-length standalone movie. However, Kevin Feige believed that it would better serve the character to opt for the Disney+ series, and Renner too gave his nod to the idea. 

2. Both Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld trained themselves in American Sign Language in order to interact with actress Alaqua Cox and make her feel welcomed. Cox, who essays the part of Maya Lopez, aka Echo in the show, was born deaf. Echo is the second deaf character in the MCU after Makkari, played by Lauren Ridloff in Eternals. 

3. In the series, Hawkeye aka Clint Barton is seen sporting the same tattoos he wore on his arms in Avengers Endgame . It seems the makers were steadfastly focused on maintaining continuity in the universe. 

4. The song that plays in the background of the car chase scene in the third episode is A Mad Russian’s Christmas by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

5. Tony Dalton’s character Jack Duquesne was originally Clint Barton’s mentor in earlier comic books. Jack would eventually turn villain and later return as an anti-hero, but their origin stories were alerted and retconned in favor of a different origin story. In later iterations, Trick-shot would become Barton’s mentor and Jack would teach Barton how to use a sword.

If you haven't watched this mini-series yet do so streaming exclusively on Disney + Hotstar
