This holiday season, the best gifts come with a bow when Marvel unpacks Hawkeye. The fourth live-action original series from Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios, the Christmas set Avengers spin-off follows WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki as the next part of Marvel’s Phase Four, hitting the small screen instead of the cinemas. Along with retired Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) with a novice superhero but expert archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), Hawkeye is a street-level police comedy comedy and Marvel’s first Christmas story since 2013’s Iron Man 3.
After the inflection of reality of WandaVision, globe-trotting Falk and Winter Soldier, and the Multiverse wrestling Loki, Hawkeye is about Clint trying to get back to his family for Christmas.
“When we brainstormed and talked about the story a few years ago, we tried to figure out how to separate this series from Wandavision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. And one way was to put it around holidays, “said executive producer Trinh Tran The Hollywood Reporter. Out of all the characters, it made sense for Clint Barton’s story to be told around this time of year because he’s a family guy. He’s one of the few Avengers with kids, and after the fallout of what happened in Playoffs – where he lost his children for five years, Ronin stayed and got them back – this is the first Christmas he’s going to spend with his family. And the series’ big question is whether he will be able to get home in time to do so. ”

As his past as the violent vigilant Ronin catches up with him Hawkeye, he needs the help of the talented 22-year-old (and Hawkeye-fangirl) Kate to solve a criminal conspiracy and address what could be an Avengers-level threat.
“There’s the big weight he’s trying to figure out when he’s stuck somewhere else. He’s trying to deal with something that has put him on this mission and he has to figure out how to get there. out of it, “Tran said, adding about the lighter. touch after Playoffs: “We wanted to show another side of Clint that we have not seen before, compared to all of them Avengers movies he’s in. “
“And I find it so much more interesting that there’s a version of Clint that’s a little more humorous from Matt Fraction. [comic book] ran, “Tran continued.” So we wanted to pull a little bit of that into the series, and we thought Kate Bishop, out of all, was the perfect candidate to do it. “
