Jeremy Renner is back, baby!

After the incredible, unprecedented runaway success of his music career, some of us worried that Jeremy Renner might hang up his bow and arrow set for good.


As we all know, Hawkeye isn't just the most popular member of the Avengers, he's easily the most interesting, charismatic and important one. This isn't even up for debate. It's simply a cold, hard fact.

And so it is that we welcome the first official in-motion look at his very own Disney+ spin-off series.

Set to debut in November, Hawkeye centres around our beloved Clint Barton as he gets to grips with new super-archer in town Kate Bishop, as played by Hailee Steinfeld. Cue some buddy cop-style comedy as explosive hijinks ensue.

Throw in a Christmas setting beyond the song throughout the trailer alongside plenty of one-liners and the tone feels very much like Shane Black, bringing a more carefree Lethal Weapon to mind. Then you have the whole 'fighting bad guys at Christmas' thing, adding a mild Die Hard flavour to the mix.


Speaking of the festive season, the poster goes all-in:

Little is known in terms of the overall plot but Florence Pugh is listed amongst the cast, which makes sense following the post-credits sequence of Black Widow in which Pugh's character was seemingly tasked with the assassination of Hawkeye.

Also on board are the great Vera Farmiga, excellently-named Irish actor Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Alaqua Cox and Zahn McClarnon.


Hawkeye lands on Disney+ on Wednesday, 24 November.

Check out the action-packed trailer below.
