Clint Barton made a lot of enemies in the time between Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, and in the new Hawkeye trailer for Disney Plus, just about all of them have gathered in New York to stop him from getting home to his family in time for Christmas. In Marvel Studios’ first trailer for the new series, which premieres this November, Clint is on the run, but Hailee Steinfeld’s new character, Kate Bishop, is in the spotlight.

According to reports, Clint will also spend the series training Kate Bishop, played by Dickinson and Edge of Seventeen’s Hailee Steinfeld. Clint is training Kate to take over the mantle of Hawkeye, and she’s probably an important part of the future of the MCU.

Hawkeye will also star Florence Pugh, who returns to the MCU as her Black Widow character Yelena Belova. As we saw during the post-credits scene of Black Widow, Yelena is one of the people recruited to track Clint down and answer for his suspected crimes — which, as we know, he didn’t technically commit.

Hawkeye was created by Jonathan Igla (Mad Men), who is also the series’ head writer. The series will be directed by Rhys Thomas (John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch) and the duo Bert and Bertie (Troop Zero). The series also stars Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, aka Echo, a young Deaf woman who can perfectly mimic people’s movements, and Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Kate Bishop’s mother.

Hawkeye season 1 premieres on Disney Plus on Nov. 24 and will run for eight episodes.
