Ahead of the series premiere Hawkeye On November 24, Disney released a new poster featuring Clint Barton, Kate Bishop, and a dog.
The poster features Hawkeye’s trademark arrow logo, with the superhero duo posing in front of it. A New York city bridge serves as a backdrop and is decorated for the Christmas and New Years holiday season. The dog in the poster is also in the Christmas spirit, wearing a Santa Claus hat and necklace of the same tone.
Serial Hawkeye will take place in post-blip New York City. Former Avenger member Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: return to his family for Christmas. He then gets help from Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld, an accomplished archer who is only 22 years old and dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a mystery from Barton’s past threatens to return.
Together Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, Hawkeye will also introduce Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez or Echo, a deaf superhero who can perfectly imitate other people’s movements. The series also stars Vera Farmiga as Kate’s mother, Eleanor Bishop; Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne, Barton’s early mentor; Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, Maya’s father and most recently Fra Fee as Kazi, better known as Kazimierz Kazimierczak AKA Clown.
If Hawkeye will mark Steinfeld’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the series will be Renner’s seventh (including What If…?) as the super archer. He first debuted with a minor role in Thor in 2011, before going on to have strong supporting roles in The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Endgame. The Hawkeye series will of course be his first solo project, ending his impressive ten-year journey as the character.
Hawkeye will also feature the return of Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova after her debut in Black Widow this year. His presence is teased in the post=credits scene of the film Black widow when the highly trained spy and assassin begins working for Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, and hunts down Barton for his role in Natasha Romanoff’s death.
