With the Avengers due for theaters in just a few weeks, it’s no surprise that Marvel is releasing some new comics that bear some relation to the film. Like with the current fun series Avengers Assemble, Marvel looks to use a character’s rising popularity from the film to be used in a new comic series.
“Hawkeye is more about what inspires Clint Barton,” Matt Fraction, who will be working with artist David Aja, explains, “We got Clint in AVENGERS, SECRET AVENGERS, and anywhere else at any given time—but we wanted HAWKEYE to be about what Clint does when he’s not at work, about what drives the guy. He’s got some stuff coming up in [Avengers Vs. X-Men] and afterwards he’s in a place where he’s gotta figure out what he’s doing with himself and why. What moves him, what’s meaningful for him.”
