Okay, whoever decided that Marvel Studios’ “Hawkeye” needed to be a Christmas tale, with serious “Die Hard” vibes- good job! That fits Jeremy Renner‘s “Avengers” hero pretty damn perfectly.
Needless to say, we were pretty pleasantly surprised this morning when Disney+ released the first trailer for their upcoming series. Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop alongside Renner’s Clint Barton is an excellent choice.
Can we all agree that “Rogers: The Musical” needs to happen?
On to the trailer!
Florence Pugh is reprising her “Black Widow” role of Yelena Belova. Vera Farmiga will be playing Kate Bishop’s mother Eleanor. Fra Fee will be playing Marvel Comics character Clown, Tony Dalton will be Swordsman, and Alaqua Cox will be deaf Native American superhero Echo. Cox herself is both deaf, AND Native American, so that’s pretty awesome. Zach McClarnon and Brian d’Arcy James round out the cast.
Rhys Thomas serves as show runner, along with directors Bert and Bertie.
“Hawkeye” hits Disney+ on November 24th, 2021.
