The best gifts during the holiday season usually come with a bow. In this case, a bow and arrow. Before stepping out for the MET Gala, Hailee Steinfeld stepped out as Kate Bishop in the first look of Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye. A Disney+ original series following suit of record-breaking shows like WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye is sure to hit its target.
In the trailer, Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye aka Ronin) is on the run and teams up with Kate Bishop just as all of Barton’s enemies are in New York to stop him from enjoying a happy Christmas family reunion. Hailee Steinfeld’s new character, Kate Bishop is an eager and talented archer who looks to get some tips from the OG Avenger himself, Jeremy Renner‘s Clint Barton. Count on an action packed series with sprinkles of comedy… “There are more arrows dangerous than that one?”
The 8-episode series follows Clint training Kate to take over the mantle of Hawkeye. Could this be another hint to the Young Avengers and a larger future for Hailee in the MCU? Hawkeye also stars Florence Pugh (Black Widow) as Yelena Belova who’s mission is to track down Clint Barton, laqua Cox as Maya Lopez (aka Echo), a young Deaf woman who can mimic people’s movements, and Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Kate Bishop’s mother.
Hawkeye premieres on Disney+ November 24th kicking off the best of time of year!
