Hawkeye Producer Teases the Show’s “Christmas Spirit”
Because Disney+’s Hawkeye series isn’t debuting until November, it’s likely to be the last live-action Marvel Studios show of 2021. And Hawkeye will not only arrive just in time for the holidays, it will also be set during the Christmas season.
Via CBR, Hawkeye executive producer Trinh Tran told TV Guide that the show is “grounded and funny and packed to the brim with Christmas spirit.” However, not everything is festive in the post-Avengers: Endgame world.
“[New York City] has, in many ways, recuperated and continued thriving,” said Tran. “But the same can’t be said for all its citizens.”
Additionally, Tran teased the first meeting of Clint Barton and his successor, Kate Bishop. She also noted that Kate has been training for years to carry on Clint’s legacy.
“Kate is looking for ways to implement those skills,” noted Tran. “That’s when she runs into Clint, who has no clue who she is and doesn’t really understand her obsession for him.”
Jeremy Renner is reprising his role as Clint Barton/Hawkeye alongside Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop. The series also stars Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne/Swordsman, Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez/Echo, Fra Fee as Kazi, and Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez. Additionally, Florence Pugh will appear as Yelena Belova, the second Black Widow.
Hawkeye will premiere on Disney+ on November 24. The series will also run for six episodes, but it’s unclear if Disney+ or Marvel want any additional seasons.
