The Hawkeye trailer revealed a new Captain America musical, but the Broadway show already has a major Marvel Cinematic Universe ending problem.
The Hawkeye trailer revealed a new Captain America musical in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the show has an obvious ending problem. Despite Avengers: Endgame marking the end of the original Avengers team, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye/Clint Barton is coming back for more in his new Disney+ series. Sans his superhero friends, Barton hangs out in New York and deals with the fallout of his deadly past as Ronin in Endgame. But the arrow-slinging hero won’t be alone for long. Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) joins the MCU in the series, becoming Hawkeye’s very own protégé and perhaps usurping Barton as the MCU’s new bow-wielding Avenger.
Besides breaking up the Avengers, Endgame also brought the end of the original Captain America (Chris Evans). In the film, Cap goes on a mission to return the Infinity Stones to the moments from which the Avengers borrowed them. By returning the Infinity Stones to their respective MCU timelines, Captain America would prevent dangerous branch timelines from forming. However, Cap decides to improvise while on the mission. After returning the stones, he chose to live life in the past, growing old with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Cap later returns to the Avengers to give his shield to Falcon (Anthony Mackie), hoping he will take on the mantle of the new Captain America.
The Hawkeye trailer reveals a Captain America musical, but the play seems to have a problem. In Hawkeye, Barton seemingly takes his kids to see the Cap-inspired musical. Large signs reveal the title of the Broadway show as Rogers: The Musical, and the style of the title evokes similarities to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. A scene from the play even shows actors playing the original Avengers and performing an upbeat dance routine. However, Endgame concluded Cap’s story with the hero traveling to the past and living out his life. Though Cap’s story ends with time travel, the official account for the public would likely be very different.
There is zero chance the Hawkeye play recalls Captain America’s real MCU story. Endgame tells a complicated tale about the Avengers traveling to the past to multiple timelines, and that’s even difficult for some MCU fans to understand. Since the Avengers would likely keep the details of the time-traveling exploits from the public, the Steve Rogers musical has a clear issue. In Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Torres (Danny Ramirez) even brings up a rumor that Captain America is secretly on the moon. With so much confusion about Rogers’ ending in the MCU, the play likely doesn’t have it right.
Rogers: The Musical may also have other issues in Hawkeye. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, a real Broadway show about superheroes, notoriously suffered from story problems and effects issues. In addition to the story problems with Rogers not telling the true story of Steve Rogers, the play also looks relatively low-budget, with costumes and sets looking somewhat simplified. Everything about the play seems like it could be an MCU version of the real-life Spider-Man show disaster. With so many potential issues, Thanos (Josh Brolin) wouldn’t need a finger snap to make the show’s audience disappear.
