A new Hawkeye clip shows Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton being overwhelmed by impersonated Avengers while wandering around New York City. The series, which is based on Matt Fraction’s comic book run with the Avenger archer, will take up sometime after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with Clint Barton attempting to enjoy a family vacation in New York City over Christmas. However, plans are altered when villains from his past known as Ronin return for vengeance, necessitating a collaboration with Hawkeye super fan and protégé Kate Bishop to take them out and return home in time for Christmas.
Jeremy Renner reprises his role as Hawkeye, alongside Hailee Steinfeld, who makes her MCU debut as Kate Bishop, Vera Farmiga as her mother Eleanor, Tony Dalton as Clint’s former mentor Jack Duquesne, Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, Linda Cardellini as Clint’s wife Laura, and Florence Pugh as Black Widow’s Yelena Belova. In addition to establishing Kate Bishop as a potential Hawkeye successor, the series acts as a springboard for the upcoming solo series Echo, which will star Maya Lopez. Hawkeye is preparing for its release, which will begin with a two-episode launch on Disney+ on November 24.
Marvel Studios has released a new Hawkeye clip in honor of Disney+ Day (via Good Morning America). Clint and Kate are seen traveling through New York City, with the former allegedly seen by a little fan, only to be overshadowed by adjacent phony Avengers.
Take a look at the new video below:

With only two weeks until the premiere of the program, it’s natural that the new Hawkeye trailer doesn’t disclose much new about its plot. The ad, on the other hand, should serve as a fantastic tease of the humor spectators may expect from the Disney+ title, namely in its representation of phony Avengers and the public’s greater interest in them than a true Avenger standing in front of them. When hinted by earlier previews, Clint’s love for the Avengers will extend to a Captain America Broadway musical in the series, for which a whole song will be featured as he attends a performance with his family.
Hawkeye’s two-episode launch on Disney+ is soon approaching, and fans’ excitement is growing. Early comments to Hawkeye hit social media this week, with most complimenting the comic tone, low-stakes tale, and performances by Steinfeld and Renner, all of which reviewers think to outshine the first two episodes fairly sluggish pacing. Hawkeye launches on November 24th, so the wait is almost over.
