Prepare to add a new show to your Christmas schedule. On September 13, the first trailer for ‘Hawkeye’ was released, and it looks like it will be the holiday event of the season!
Who’d have guessed Marvel was gearing up for the holidays? Hawkeye, for example, is experiencing this. Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) is eager to make up for missed time with his children following the blip.
When a masked vigilante comes to New York City, however, his preparations are derailed. In the first trailer for Hawkeye, Clint remarks, “The past has caught up with me.”
Clint is aware that he must attend to some business and assures his children that he will be home for Christmas. When he goes on the hunt for the masked vigilante, he encounters Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop. When Clint asks who Kate is, she informs him, “Some people have labeled me the world’s finest archer.”
Things swiftly spin out of control, and Clint and Kate must work together to defeat common foes. In addition, the teaser includes brief views of Vera Farmiga, who plays Kate’s mother Eleanor Bishop, a Steve Rogers musical, and Clint and Kate’s fantastic archery action.
Hawkeye is set in New York City after the Blip. “Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly easy mission: come back to his family for Christmas,” according to the official synopsis. Possible? Perhaps with the assistance of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer who aspires to be a Super Hero. When a ghost from Barton’s past threatens to wreck far more than the holiday joy, the two are forced to work together.”
Kate Bishop joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Hawkeye. Kate made her debut in Marvel Comics in 2005 and soon became a fan favorite. Her archery talents are akin to Hawkeye’s, and she is also skilled in other forms of combat. It’s unknown what her role in the MCU will be after Hawkeye, although she’ll almost certainly appear in future TV episodes or films.
Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James, and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez all star in the series. Hawkeye will premiere on Disney+ on September 24.
