Hawkeye’s ‘Steve Rogers: The Musical’ Explained

If you can kindly lift your head from the kiddie pool and stop dancing for Tobeys and Andrews in the Spider-Man: No Coming Home trailer for just a few minutes, you might notice that there’s already another Marvel something available to the streaming public. Focus on the present, friends.

If you haven’t paid attention, the show I’m talking about is Hawk Eye, which launched its first two episodes on Disney+ on Wednesday morning. In the first episode, we reunite with Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), who is, perhaps like you, a little tired of superhero nonsense, after battling the thumb of intergalactic space that wiped out his family. At first, the poor guy just wants to enjoy a Broadway show with his family. The show he chooses? Well he gets a hot ticket for Steve Rogers: The Musicalwhich, as we’re meant to understand, chronicles the life and times of the long-gone Cape (Chris Evans’s!) via song and dance.

Since this is a Disney+ jam without the seemingly unlimited runtime of, say, Eternals, we are only entitled to a big, shiny number from the series. It’s titled “I Could Do This All Day,” set to a Broadway-ified version of the final battle we saw in The Avengers. I’m here to tell you that—I’m almost afraid to say it—is it pretty good? The song itself, performed primarily by Steve Rogers’ character, is an absolute earworm (“I could do anything… DAYYY!”) that I haven’t been able to purge from my head since I started it. saw. And while the dancing/fighting/intense facial expressions are intentionally cheesy, it’s all legit enough to make you think a Marvel musical might actually work. (It’s not on Broadway. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark ruined it for the rest of us.)

The single stage opens a whole world uh, universe of possibilities.

Listen: We’re up to 26 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. There will probably be another 26 before it’s all said and done. With Hawk Eye very lightly introducing the idea of ​​an MCU listening to its loyal fans, one of which will be a musical. We call it. Maybe we even beg him?

Baz Luhrmann will be directing, of course, because his colors, noise, and fireworks already seem to have fallen from the back half of the phase of the MCU we find ourselves in. Maybe Lin-Manuel Miranda, if Kevin Feige will accept his requests to become Stan Lee’s new ubiquitous cameo. We’d like to say that any number of musically gifted famous individuals will lead this hypothetical project – maybe Hugh Jackman will return for a Wolverine musical, or Emma Stone poofs through the multiverse as the tap-dancing Spider-Gwen, but we all know that one superhero already introduced will break new ground musically: Harry Styles.

You heard it here the first time. Every time Harry Styles’ Starfox, who showed up at Eternalsgets his solo movie, he will—or, at the very least, should— be a musical film. It might even contain only current Harry Styles songs. Or new ones. We don’t care. What address at Marvel takes unsolicited scripts?
