After a decade since his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hawkeye’s finally the lead in his own series, which arrives soon in Aotearoa.
When you think ‘Hawkeye’, you likely won’t have sleigh bells ringing in your head. That might change after Marvel’s bow-n-arrow hero lands on Disney+ later this year.
Christmas-themed Marvel series Hawkeye sees Jeremy Renner returns as masterful archer Clint Barton, who has a lot to answer for after his blood-lusting actions in Avengers: Endgame. Fellow Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) makes her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Kate Bishop, who’s training alongside Barton to become a “superhero without superpowers.”
Like all good gifts, Hawkeye isn’t what we expected from a show starring Clint Barton, but it sure looks like a treat. We’ll be able to unwrap this series when it launches on November 24 on Disney+ with a double episode premiere, with following episodes releasing weekly.
