Marvel’s Hawkeye finally premiered on Disney+ this week with its first two episodes, and while it is exciting to see Jeremy Renner return as the title character and Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop being introduced, the only thing anyone has been talking about is how cute Lucky the Pizza Dog is. To make the premiere of the show that much more special it just so happened to be Lucky actor Jolt the Golden Retriever's fourth birthday, and the dog took to Instagram to mark the occasion.
The first image sees Jolt posing out in the wilderness with a toy bow and arrow and a Hawkeye series poster behind him. Keeping with the show theme the second picture sees Jolt posing next to a Lucky-inspired pizza cake. At this point, Marvel should rename the show Lucky the Pizza Dog because, in a world where comic book fans are divided over films like Eternals, this fluffy angel is the only one with the ability to bring the world together.
When talking to Variety at the show’s premiere, director Rhys Thomas joked about everyone's favorite new pup, saying, “Just a consummate professional. A little easier than some of these folks to be honest with you. I was blessed in a lot of ways."
The street-level crime drama is set during the Christmas season and sees Clint Barton deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame and his dark past as the vigilante Ronin all the while taking Kate Bishop under his wing. The series will consist of six action-packed episodes and finishes just in time for Christmas. You can watch the first two episodes now on Disney+ and remember to wish Jolt a happy birthday. For the latest news on Hawkeye — or, more importantly, Lucky the Pizza Dog, stick with Collider.
He also talks about which scene was part of his original pitch to Marvel and wanting to see 'Rogers: The Musical' in real life.
