Hawkeye is the last MCU TV show to hit Disney Plus this year. Coincidentally, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is the last of the original six Avengers to get a standalone story. That’s after Black Widow hit theaters a few months ago, bringing the Natasha Romanoff story fans have been asking for. Unlike Nat (Scarlett Johansson), Clint Barton isn’t getting a movie. But as the previous MCU
The rumors all said that Hawkeye will train Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) in the TV show. Then we got a few official teasers from Marvel, including a Renner interview that confirmed it all. Bishop is a big Hawkeye fan, and she’ll likely appear in new Young Avengers team-ups down the road. But we had no idea what sort of existential threat Bishop and Barton will face in the TV show. Neither Renner nor Steinfeld has offered any details surrounding the Hawkeye plot.
The first Hawkeye trailer is finally live
Unlike Black Widow, we do know that the action in Hawkeye takes place after the snap. Therefore, the Avengers story is moving forward with this adventure rather than filling in the gaps of the past stories. And Hawkeye will probably tell us how Clint Barton retires now that he got his family back.
Renner took to his Instagram account over the weekend to say the first Hawkeye trailer will arrive on Monday. Steinfeld then doubled down on her own social media accounts. These moves seemed highly coordinated with Marvel. You don’t tease this sort of event unless Marvel is ready to start the marketing campaign for the TV show.
Rumors aside, the first trailer gives us a look at the two characters and the post-Endgame world. It also teases what the two will have to face. Check out the first Hawkeye trailer below:
