The primary trailer for Disney Plus’ Hawkeye has arrived, giving a primary have a look at the surprisingly whimsical Christmastime adventures of Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) — and his new successor, Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), who is also working round New York Metropolis as a preternaturally expert, purple-clad archer.
Hawkeye picks up with the titular character after the occasions of Avengers: Endgame, which noticed Renner’s character flip out right into a gothic edgelord type because the murderous vigilante Ronin after his household was wiped from existence in Thanos’ snap. However with issues again to regular (and his household restored), Clint simply needs to take pleasure in Christmas along with his household: go to New York Metropolis, see the brand new Captain America musical, and luxuriate in high quality eating.
All that appears to get thrown right into a loop, although, when phrase of a vigilante wielding a bow and sporting what appears loads like Barton’s outdated Ronin swimsuit begins working round New York. It seems to be Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, who proudly tells Hawkeye that she’s the “world’s biggest archer.” From there, it appears a complete bunch of Christmastime mayhem ensues.
The trailer is especially notable for its surprisingly mild tone: Hawkeye has by no means been one of many Avengers’ extra comedic characters, and his earlier outing particularly (which once more, noticed him get a full sleeve tattoo, a tragic haircut, and a global revenge tour) was grim. The brand new sequence is predicted to attract on the acclaimed Matt Fraction and David Aja comics run (the Tracksuit Mafia and Fortunate the Pizza Canine each seem like within the trailer), which is thought for its lighter tone, extra grounded stakes, and behavior of routinely taking Clint Barton down a peg or two. Though with the Christmas spirit within the air, it additionally appears like Hawkeye shall be taking some pointers from classics like Residence Alone and Die Onerous.
Hawkeye is about to debut on Disney Plus for a six-episode season beginning on November twenty fourth.
