While Marvel Studios is certainly enjoying a return to the theatrical spotlight with the Hollywood premiere of Eternals, the MCU is also looking to close the year out with a bang on the Disney+ side of things. After nearly two months without live-action episode releases, Thanksgiving 2021 will bring the debut for Jeremy Renner's first Marvel solo project in Hawkeye.
The series will focus on a Clint Barton that's seemingly left his Avengers days in the past for the time being, although he will find himself serving as a semi-mentor to Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop along the way. This will unfortunately force him to be away from his family once again, although the show's six episodes will give the hero his biggest spotlight to date after a decade-long story.
Over most of the past month, Marvel has pushed ahead with Hawkeye's promotional campaign, giving fans the first looks at Kate Bishop alongside exciting action shots of her and Clint in full hero form. Now, a new piece of the promo tour is delivering even more new footage that teases the series' joyful setting.

Bishop and Barton Take On Christmas
Hawkeye will mark the MCU's second Christmas-centric project after 2013's Iron Man 3, although this trailer teases more than just the holiday spirit coming to Disney+.
The new footage largely focuses on Kate Bishop showcasing her signature snark, as she brags about teaming up with an Avenger while also showing more of her skills as an archer. This all comes alongside looks at a fancied-up Clint Barton running through a crowd while other shots tease him in a state of pure annoyance after being captured by undisclosed bad guys.
Fans also get a great look at Alaqua Cox's Echo, who is being set up for a major role in the MCU's future for Phase 4 and beyond. While it's only for a second and doesn't show her acting as a superhero yet, it seems clear that Barton and Bishop will have to rely on her at some point during their own mission.
With this series now just over a month away from its Disney+ premiere, Marvel Studios will surely look to increase the efforts on promo material for its final series outing of the year. This project may be largely teasing the Christmas vibe, but the MCU's Disney+ series are proving to have far more than one defining trait.
Hawkeye will debut on Disney+ on November 24, 2021.
