“We haven’t filmed any other songs. We only have that one, but we would happily do others …”
The first minutes of Hawkeye are absolutely perfect and beautifully symbolize the cool, quirky tone of the new Marvel series from Disney Plus. While on vacation in New York with his children, Clint Barton decides to take them to a Broadway show. Not just any … Rogers, The Musical ! A musical dedicated to Avengers and their exploits in the Big Apple, repelling the invasion of the Chitauri! We watch for a few minutes the last number of the play, particularly spectacular, both improbable and so well done.
Hawkeye: When is the Marvel series set in the MCU timeline? [exclu]
The producer and director of Hawkeye, Rhys Thomas, explains where this gently eccentric idea came from: “It was a bit of a silly idea we had from the start … to have fun with Clint’s grumpy character ….” Thomas tells Première. “We were looking for something that could seriously annoy him, just to show his state of mind, at the beginning of the series. Knowing that it was going to take place in New York, I thought to myself that it would be fun to stage a musical, with Clint watching a version of himself dancing and singing on stage, about some dramatic moments in his own life! Seriously. And then Kevin Feige loved the idea! And suddenly, the project came up! We brought in March Shaiman who wrote the music and this song … “
“I Can Do This All Day” is going to be on the minds of Marvel fans for a long time. So much so that the studio has decided to release the official title booklet, with all of the number’s dialogue and the song’s lyrics (below).
“I think we managed to find the ideal tone with this song and dabs this sequence “, analyzes the director, to explain the very positive echo received by Rogers, The Musical. “Admittedly, it was a little complicated deciding what kind of show this musical about Steve Rogers would be! Was it going to be great? Was it going to be the Hamilton of the MCU? Yes, but in At the same time, it had to be funny, for the public to understand that we are in the second degree. That all this is a little ridiculous. But not too much either … “
Rhys Thomas concludes with a smile: “It was weird to shoot like a thing. To redo the battle of New York on a theater stage … We had a great time and frankly, I think we could have gone further and done the whole musical! Unfortunately, we did not film any other songs. We didn’t have time. We only have that one, but we would happily make others … “
So how long before Broadway has really been putting on a musical Avengers ? In the meantime, we will find Clint Barton next Wednesday for the continuation of Hawkeye on Disney +.
