The new Hawkeye series premieres on Disney+ next month, just in time for the holidays!
Based on some of the characters in the trailers the backbone of the show is Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye run. The comic is considered to be one of Clint’s best storylines. It’s gone through some changes to fit into the MCU, but the core story is there. There are some tracksuit-wearing European Mafiosi in the trailers and an aptly labeled van in the first trailer – be prepared for a lot of people saying ‘bro’ all the time. Along with warring with those oddballs, the plot digs into Clint’s personal insecurities and working with his protégé Kate Bishop.
It’s a great launching point for Kate and a way to wind Clint’s story down from the Infinity Saga.
The new poster features Clint and Kate in super-hero appropriate purple garb and a festively decked out Lucky aka Pizza-Dog.
The cast is led by Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, and also features Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James, and newcomer Alaqua Cox. The series is helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie.
Pizza Dog is played by Jolt and his sister Evie.
Disney+ and Marvel Studios invite you on an unexpected holiday getaway, unwrapping a brand-new teaser trailer and poster today for “Hawkeye,” a new series set in post-blip New York City. Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.
‘Hawkeye’ debuts exclusively on Disney+ on November 24.
