Marvel Studios released the first trailer for the new “Hawkeye” series on Monday, giving Marvel fans their first glimpse a the upcoming Disney+ original series.

“Hawkeye” will center around Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), who has to leave his family during the holiday season to, well, fight crime and atone for the sins he’s made as Ronin (as seen in “Avengers: Endgame”).

But, to his surprise, he meets a young woman who has a talent with a bow-and-arrow. This is Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld,) who has long desired to become a super hero.

Watch the trailer below. After the trailer, stick around for some quick notes about what we saw.

OK. First off, one of the opening clips shows a post-Blip New York City, suggesting that this story will take place after “Avengers: Endgame.” In fact, there’s a musical on display called “Rogers the Musical,” which appears to be a musical based on Steve Rogers, who is Captain America.

Also, the trailer heavily takes place during Christmastime. In some way, the series is a Christmas family special where Clint Barton needs to get home to his family with the help of Kate Bishop. It’s a new take on the MCU, which has barely touched on the major holidays aside from some minor Christmas references in “Iron Man 3.”

The series premieres on Nov. 24, 2021.
