Hawkeye: Jeremy Renner Hypes Pizza Dog’s Arrival In Set Photos

Jeremy Renner, who’s currently filming Hawkeye, recently shared photos of Pizza Dog from the show’s set. Hawkeye is one of several Marvel Cinematic Universe series in the works at Disney+. Until recently, little known was about the show, other than that Renner would reprise his role as Clint Barton/Hawkeye from the Marvel films. That changed this week, as Hawkeye began filming in New York. With the production start came a deluge of set photos, including ones confirming Hailee Steinfeld will play Kate Bishop. Images also show Hawkeye with a hearing aid, teasing a key storyline from the comics.

Soon after filming started, several other cast members were revealed. Notably, Florence Pugh, who stars in the upcoming Black Widow movie, will return as Yelena Belova in Hawkeye. The series will also introduce the Daredevil character Maya Lopez/Echo, who will be played by Alaqua Cox. The cast is rounded out by Zahn McClarnon as Echo’s father, Vera Farmiga as Kate Bishop’s mother, Fra Fee as Kazi/The Clown, and Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne/Swordsman.

Despite all of these updates, fans were arguably most delighted by the inclusion of Lucky the Pizza Dog, a fan favorite in the comics. Yesterday, Renner shared a couple images hyping the golden retriever’s Hawkeye role. In his Instagram stories, Renner posted one photo of himself petting Pizza Dog and another where he wore a mask. In a separate post, Renner shared an image of himself with Steinfeld and the dog. Check it out below:

Renner’s instant appreciation of Pizza Dog is good news for fans, considering Clint and Lucky share a close bond in the comics. Pizza Dog was introduced when he saved Hawkeye’s life, injuring himself in the process. Later on, Kate becomes attached to Lucky as well, making him a good fit for the Hawkeye series. Coupled with Hawkeye’s hearing issues, it seems likely the show will pull from Matt Fraction’s comics, which offers some exciting storyline possibilities.

Renner’s photos don’t reveal anything new about Hawkeye, other than a closer look at Pizza Dog. However, they do provide a fun window behind-the-scenes. Renner has been a key resource throughout the process of developing the show, offering hints of what’s to come. That’s only increased since filming started, with the actor posting content related to the show all week. Hopefully, that continues as Hawkeye gets further into filming and closer to a release date announcement.
