Following the blockbuster record-breaking success of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios has proven its desire to take the MCU into new places going forward. From a reality-bending sitcom to Marvel Studios' first animated venture, the Phase 4 slate of films and series may be the studio's boldest yet.
But it seems the madness is just getting started as the MCU prepares to release its first all-out festive outing in November with Hawkeye.
The solo debut for Jeremy Renner's archer will see the former Avenger team up with Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop for a holiday spectacular. Alongside the leading archers, Alaqua Cox will debut as deaf hero Maya Lopez aka Echo and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova will return from Black Widow.
With only a month to go until release, Hawkeye's official poster has finally been released, offering a new look at the starring duo and their fluffy friend.
Hawkeye Releases Festive Holiday Poster
Marvel Studios' Twitter account released the official poster for the Hawkeye Disney+ series, highlighting the holiday setting.
The poster features a unique arrow-themed style with a new look at Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop alongside their canine companion Lucky.
The festive-themed poster pays tribute to a cover from Matt Fraction's beloved Hawkeye comic run which famously introduced Kate Bishop and will serve as inspiration for the Disney+ series.
Hawkeye Showcases Matt Fraction Influences
Ever since Kevin Feige announced Hawkeye at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel Studios has made a point of emphasizing the influence Matt Fraction's critically-acclaimed comic run will have on the series. Between the series' logo, the latest poster, and even the visual style of the animated announcement shown at the 2019 event, everything has been influenced by the legendary comics.
Fraction's Hawkeye has often been considered to be a turning point for the character as it quickly attracted a large audience and critical acclaim. With both Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop and Lucky the Dog set to debut in the series, the comic writer's influences are clear, although it remains unclear how similar the stories will actually be.
Hawkeye will premiere its first two episodes on November 24, exclusively on Disney+.
