Following the recently released trailer for Hawkeye, an official synopsis for the Marvel and Disney + series has now appeared, offering an even better idea of what audiences can expect from Clint Barton’s return. The series sees Jeremy Renner reprise his role as a master shooter Avengers, s Hawk’s gaze at the center of the relationship between Barton and the ambitious superhero Kate Bishop, played by A bee star Hailey Steinfeld.
“Disney + and Marvel Studios invite you on an unexpected holiday getaway with Hawkeye, a new series set in post-blip New York. Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: to return to his family for Christmas. Possibly? Maybe with the help of “Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old shooter with dreams of becoming a superhero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to dig far more than the holiday spirit.”
Confirming that the series will indeed take place after the chaos caused by “Crazy Titan Thanos” and “Sliding”, the synopsis describes Clint Barton as a “former Avengers”, which means that he probably left behind his superhero duties. Hawk’s gaze assigns the Marvel hero with a seemingly simple task, to return to his family for the holiday season, which should certainly be easy for a man who has fought the literal gods and invaded aliens. Of course, things are never so easy at MCU, and Barton will have to team up with one of his biggest fans, Kate Bishop, if he hopes to survive this Christmas.
As posted in the trailer, and now in this synopsis, Hawk’s gaze finds that Clint Barton regrets the time spent as Ronin, a much more violent person against the hero, whose deadly methods were demonstrated in The Avengers: It’s over. It seems and sounds that his activities during this dark period of his life will return to haunt him, and the “presence of Barton’s past” will probably be from the time of Ronin’s terror rule.
The synopsis, as well as the trailer, also confirmed this Hawk’s gaze will take a lot of inspiration from Matt Fraction’s comics, which began in 2012, something that has been suspected for some time. Folding elements of Marvel’s ongoing cinematic universe, the series seems to have the same street-level threats, including the introduction of the tracksuit mafia, as the events act as a backdrop to the evolving (and often funny) teacher-student relationship between Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. All with added Christmas holidays, of course.
Along with Renner and Steinfeld, Hawk’s gaze will also star with Vera Farmiga, Tony Dalton, Zan McClarnon and Brian d’Arcy James. The Mafia Tracksuit is unlikely to be the only new villain the two Hawks will deal with, as Fra Fee joins the MCU as Kazi, better known as Kazimierz Kazimierczak AKA Clown, who injures Barton in Matt Fraction’s comics, causing him deaf. The series will also feature Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez AKA Echo, a deaf superhero who can perfectly copy another person’s movements and is set to be the subject of her own Disney + series.
Hawk’s gaze is scheduled for premiere on November 24, 2021 and will consist of six episodes ending on December 29. This comes to us from Marvel Studios.
