The next show will premiere on Disney + in November and, rightly so, has a festive setting. Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) just wants to spend Christmas with his family, but his enemies have other plans.
The series marks the return of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. This time around, he has a new partner: Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), the self-proclaimed “greatest archer in the world”. Hawk Eye would center on the relationship between the two toxophilites, with Clint training Kate to take on the role of Hawkeye, as the character does in the comics. There are hints of this passing of the torch in the trailer. It shows the couple meeting for the first time and forming a bond as they work together to fight henchmen.
There are a few nods to other parts of the MCU here, including the existence of a Broadway musical about Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) and a nod to the ‘masked vigilante’ in which Hawkeye fought. Avengers: Endgame. Something that we not seen in the trailer is an appearance by Florence Pugh, who bowed out as MCU assassin Yelena Belova in this summer. She was in Hawk Eye last december.
Either way, you won’t have to wait too long to see what happens when Yelena, Clint, and Kate meet. The first season in eight episodes of Hawk Eyewill debut on Disney +.
