The holiday season is almost upon us, and that will mean a few things — including the premiere of Hawkeye. The upcoming Disney+ series is set to debut around Thanksgiving later this month, showcasing a whole new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we still have to wait a few more weeks to see the series premiere, we now have some of the first indications of what to expect from the show. On Thursday afternoon, the first reactions to Hawkeye began to surface online, and they seem to indicate that the series is about to be Marvel's next hit.
In Hawkeye, while in New York City post-Blip, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) must work together with the young archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) to confront enemies from his past as Ronin in order to get back to his family in time for Christmas. Hawkeye will also star Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Fra Fee as The Clown, Tony Dalton as Swordsman, Alaqua Cox as Echo, Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, and Florence Pugh reprising her Black Widow role of Yelena Belova.

Hits the Mark
#Hawkeye opens on a really cool sequence that is super rewarding for long time MCU fans. I loved it.
Hailee Steinfeld is a great, energized Kate Bishop. Great new addition who hits the mark!
The future for Kate & Clint's dynamic seems really, really fun. Watched 2 eps, want 3! pic.twitter.com/BzBsuc5XmC— BD (@BrandonDavisBD) November 11, 2021
I am delighted to report that #Hawkeye was everything I wanted it to be! I got to see the first two episodes, and despite my (very high) expectations, it managed to charm me right off my feet.— Meagan Damore (@metathor) November 11, 2021
I truly enjoyed every second of #Hawkeye’s first two episodes. Plus, I already adore the dynamic between Clint Barton & Kate Bishop. @JeremyRenner and @HaileeSteinfeld work so well together, creating a fun & entertaining new series. There’s also a lot of heart, which I loved. 💜 pic.twitter.com/o26MKsohrT— Sophia Soto (@srsoto26) November 11, 2021
Disney and Marvel have a real hit on their hands with @hawkeyeofficial. Hailee Steinfeld and Jeremy Renner have unbelievable chemistry together. This is easily the most light-hearted and funny of the Disney+ Marvel shows. #Hawkeye #MarvelStudios #DisneyPlusDay pic.twitter.com/tZzaym0CD8— Hunter Bolding (@HunterBolding) November 11, 2021
Hawkeye is PERFECT. 15 minutes in & I was a sobbing mess. Feels the most MCU of the Marvel shows with action & story. Great Kate Bishop introduction (@HaileeSteinfeld is AMAZING) but also the show Clint deserves. SO MANY COMIC NODS! Avengers musical in real life, please. #Hawkeye pic.twitter.com/vW6uv4jOay— Tessa Smith - Mama's Geeky (@MamasGeeky) November 11, 2021
A Great Introduction
First 2 episodes of #Hawkeye are a great introduction and somewhat refreshing. Was really enjoyable to see a small scale MCU story that reminded me of the good Marvel Netflix stuff
Hailee Steinfeld shines as Kate Bishop & immediately makes the role her own. Excited for the rest! pic.twitter.com/vORI9q9e8m— Jacob (@JacobDFilm) November 11, 2021
#Hawkeye is great! Love the Christmassy theme, and Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop is 10/10 🏹 the dynamic between her and Clint is lots of fun, too. Looking forward to more!! pic.twitter.com/wMiurPO91i— Molly Edwards (@mollycaroline7) November 11, 2021
#Hawkeye is classic Marvel action-adventure comedy. It leans in heavily to the joy of Christmas and the idea of family. #HaileeSteinfeld absolutely steals the show and owns the screen. pic.twitter.com/l88vdiuZmR— 👻 Neil Vagg 🎃 (@neilvagg) November 11, 2021
#Hawkeye is freaking phenomenal, most fun I've had watching a #Marvel show all year! @JeremyRenner finally gets the perfect showcase and is a complete badass while @HaileeSteinfeld is effortlessly charming as #KateBishop. Probably my favorite new addition to the MCU. pic.twitter.com/CWQmEugXLf— Rohan Patel (@KingPatel7) November 11, 2021
Good, Christmasy Fun
Hawkeye is good, Christmasy fun. It does feel the least ambitious of the MCU series thus far (obviously that could change after 2 episodes). Reminds me a bit of the Netflix series. Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop is a treat and I can’t wait until she meets Pugh’s Yelena. #Hawkeye pic.twitter.com/NcroguuQgK— Richard Newby (@RICHARDLNEWBY) November 11, 2021
