Hawkeye tries to get home for Christmas in the first series trailer

If for some reason you had asked us to guess which highly anticipated new show would be about a man trying to get home for Christmas, we definitely wouldn’t have chosen Hawk Eye.

But that’s the general plot of the new Marvel show, which arrives on Disney + on November 24. The show is set in New York City after the Blip, when half the population is gone, then suddenly returned five years later. It follows superhero archer Clint Barton / Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as he tries to reunite with his family in time for Christmas with the help of young archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld).

Apparently, Hawkeye’s past has come back to haunt him, which isn’t a big surprise considering what the guy has been up to in the five years his family has been kidnapped. As Avengers: Endgame revealed, he became a terrifying assassin named Ronin and committed a slew of murders that many people probably haven’t forgotten.
