Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye is an original new series set in post-blip New York City where former Avenger Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. But when a threat from his past shows up, Hawkeye reluctantly teams up with Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), a 22-year-old skilled archer and his biggest fan, to unravel a criminal conspiracy.
The series also features Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James, and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez.
Originally this was my least anticipated Marvel Studios Phase 4 offering, but honestly this looks like it could be a lot of a fun. Hawkeye is one of my all time favorite Avengers in the comics, however in the movies he kind of got overshadowed by the other heroes. It will be interesting to see what Renner can fully bring to the character with a series focused on Hawkeye.
Helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie, Hawkeye debuts exclusively on Disney+ on November 24, 2021.
