Based on the action-packed trailer, the story unfolds during the holiday season, and centers on Hawkeye’s burgeoning partnership with Marvel fan favorite Kate Bishop, played here by Hailee Steinfeld. In the comics, Bishop assumed the role of Hawkeye when Clint Barton was missing in action. Here, it looks like Hawkeye becomes something of a mentor to Bishop as they team up to fight bad guys in a snow-dusted New York City. Set sometime after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the show also stars Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, and Alaqua Cox among others.
To coincide with the release of the trailer, Marvel also shared a teaser poster for the show that plays up the show’s holiday setting “This holiday season, the best gifts come with a bow,” the poster teases.
As with the previous Marvel Studios Disney+ shows, such as Loki and WandaVision, the show will receive a behind-the-scenes special as part of the Marvel Studios: Assembled series when it concludes. Hawkeye will consist of a lean six-episode first season, but Variety reported earlier this year that Marvel was also developing a spin-off show focused on Alaqua Cox’s character, Echo.
Hawkeye premieres Nov. 24, 2021 on Disney+. Watch the trailer up top.
