The studio unwrapped the first full trailer for Hawkeye on Monday, offering fans a closer look at the Avenging archers in action, with Jeremy Renner returning as Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld making her MCU debut as Kate Bishop, a Hawkeye-in-training, in this episodic spin-off of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check out the action-packed preview below:
The trailer sees Barton trying to get back to his family in time for Christmas, with the help of Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. As the footage teases (and per Marvel’s synopsis), the two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.
Along with Hawkeye’s festive-themed trailer, Marvel also shared a brand new poster for the series, showing Barton, Bishop and Lucky the Pizza Dog walking the snowy streets of New York City. “This holiday season the best gifts come with a bow,” reads the tagline on the one-sheet that teases holiday hijinks in the six-episode season.
Vera Farmiga is starring as Eleanor Bishop, Kate’s mother, while Tony Dalton is in the mix as “The Swordsman” Jack Duquesne alongside Fra Fre’s Kazi and Zahn McClarnon’s William Lopez. In addition, Alaqua Cox is portraying Maya Lopez, aka Echo, a deaf Native American who can perfectly copy another person’s movements.
The new cast members will play supporting roles to Renner’s Hawkeye and Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, who eventually takes on the Hawkeye mantle. Steinfeld’s role as Kate Bishop was confirmed at the Disney Investor Day presentation on December 10. Steinfeld has previously starred in True Grit, Bumblebee, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
