As we’re halfway through What If?, it’s time to gear up for the next Disney+ MCU series, Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner returns as Clint Barton in a post-Endgame New York City, spending time with his family seeing things like a Captain America-themed musical. When reports of his grim alter ego Ronin reappearing in the city pop up, Clint stays behind in the city to investigate and finds Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), a 22-year-old archery prodigy who wants to be a superhero. Kate and Clint team up to battle across New York when a threat from Clint’s past reemerges and he’s doing it all while trying to be home for Christmas. It all feels a bit Shane Blackesque and Hailee Steinfeld seems like a charmingly dorky Kate in the vein of Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress from Birds of Prey. The Hawkeyes also meet Echo (Alaqua Cox), a Native American who, while deaf, can perfectly copy people’s movements a la Taskmaster and Florence Pugh is supposed to reprise her role of Yelena Belova as well. Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, and Brian D’Arcy James co-star with Mad Men’s Jonathan Igla as show creator. The series debuts on November 24th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
