It feels like it’s been ages since the Hawkeye series was first teased at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, but just over two years later, the first trailer has finally arrived.
Hawkeye sees the return of the archer Clint Barton (portrayed by Jeremy Renner), one of the founding members of the Avengers. We’ll also finally meet a character who has made a name for herself on the pages of Marvel Comics throughout the years — Kate Bishop (portrayed by Hailee Steinfeld). First appearing in the 2005 Young Avengers series, Kate took on the mantle of Hawkeye in Clint’s absence. The two later teamed up in Matt Fraction and David Aja’s critically acclaimed 2012 Hawkeye series.
Watch the first official trailer for Hawkeye below. Set to premiere in late November, it looks like Hawkeye will be bringing with it plenty of festive holiday spirit alongside Clint and Kate’s action-packed adventures.
The opening of the trailer confirms that Hawkeye will take place sometime after Avengers: Endgame, because Clint will be dealing with the repercussions of his years as the vigilante Ronin. In a moment that’s fitting given the holiday setting of the series, Clint promises his daughter that he’ll be home for Christmas. As for Kate Bishop, it appears that Clint will meet her when he catches her masquerading as Ronin.
Fans of Fraction and Aja’s aforementioned comics can rest easy knowing that the beloved star Lucky the Pizza Dog will be making an appearance. In the meantime, we’ll be sitting here hoping that there’s a full cut of Rogers the Musical.
The first teaser poster for the show has been revealed, too.
The cast also includes Vera Farmiga as Kate’s mother Eleanor, Fra Fee as Kazi, Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne, Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, and Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez. Florence Pugh will reprise has role as Yelena Belova.
The series is helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie.
The first episode of Hawkeye will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 24. Stay tuned for our coverage!
