HAWKEYE Artist David Aja Says "Stop Crediting, Start Paying" Following Poster Release For Disney+ Series

HAWKEYE Artist David Aja Says "Stop Crediting, Start Paying" Following Poster Release For Disney+ Series

Hawkeye recently debuted a new poster which paid homage to David Aja's comic book work. Now, the artist has responded, and it sounds like he'd rather be paid than credited by Disney and Marvel Studios.

It's been obvious for a while now that Hawkeye is taking a great deal of inspiration from Matt Fraction and David Aja's comic book run. Everything from the show's logo to the inclusion of the Tracksuit Draculas, Pizza Dog, and Kate Bishop herself are lifted from that series, with the latest poster for the show clearly paying homage to one of Aja's covers. 

Recently, there's been a lot of discussion online about comic book creatives not being appropriately compensated for the way their work is adapted for film and television. Now, Aja appears to have made his feelings known by saying that he'd like to see Marvel Studios "stop crediting [and] start paying."

His comments do appear to be at least somewhat in jest, but chances are he's set to receive nothing more than a credit at the end of each episode for the way his work inspired Hawkeye. As a result, it's easy enough to see why he'd rather be paid, especially as we know Disney has previously given creators a paltry amount for their characters and concepts being used in live-action. 

We haven't heard much from Fraction when it comes to his thoughts on the show, but it's been quite some time since he's actually done any work for Marvel Comics. 

Hawkeye will premiere on November 24 with its first two episodes.
