The festive season is back, and so is your favourite Marvel hero!
The last time we saw Clint Barton, (played by Jeremy Renner), he was home safe with his family after surviving the aftermath of the biggest Marvel film ever — Avengers: Endgame. Many fans would think that he would finally give up the ‘superhero life’ for real this time — after his short-lived retirement brought on by the heartwrenching devastation of the Battle of Sokovia in the second Avengers’ film installment, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
But it seems like the ‘superhero life’ isn’t done with him just yet because as seen in the trailer, Clint has once again donned his suit as he attempts to flee the consequences of his past actions.
With the expansion of the Marvel Universe, our heroes have been granted shows of their own such as Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and WandaVision. And as the year closes down on 2021, it is Hawkeye’s turn to grace our digital screens with his own self-titled series…and he’s got a sidekick as well.
This comedic, action-packed festive adventure introduces us to Kate Bishop for the first time, portrayed by Hailee Steinfeld!
In the comics, Kate ends up taking over the mantle of Hawkeye after the death of Clint. However, after Clint was brought back to life by the Scarlet Witch, these two became quite the duo by sharing the same mantle. While we have yet to find out how this series will play out, fans are already letting their imagination run wild with plausible theories!
With six episodes lined up (each episode with a runtime of about 45-60 minutes), fans are in for a double-episode premiere. So stock up on some snacks, hang up some Christmas stockings, and enjoy!
