The next show will premiere on Disney+ in November and, appropriately enough, 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-professed “world’s greatest archer.” Hawkeye is said to center on the relationship between the two toxophilites, with Clint training Kate to take over as Hawkeye, as the character does in the comics. There are hints of that passing of the torch in the trailer. It shows the pair meeting for the first time and forming a bond as they work together to battle some goons.
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 tip of the cap toward the “masked vigilante” Hawkeye battled in Avengers: Endgame. Something we don’t see in the trailer is an appearance by Florence Pugh, who made her MCU bow as assassin Yelena Belova in this summer. She was in Hawkeye last December.
