A brand new trailer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Disney Plus series Hawkeye dropped yesterday, confirming that we’ll be getting a double dose of Clint Barton when the show launches on November 24, following the WandaVision method of debuting the first two episodes at once.
While her return was expected, the latest promo confirmed that Linda Cardellini will be back as Clint’s wife Laura. While she hasn’t had a great deal to do in her MCU appearances so far, giving her a sizeable role in Hawkeye presents an interesting storytelling opportunity that we haven’t really seen in the franchise before.
We’ve seen Pepper Potts fret over Tony Stark’s world-saving adventures, but he was a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist. What’s it like for someone like Laura Barton, a regular person married to somebody from a normal background who just happened to be so good at firing a bow and arrow that he ended up as an Avenger?
Whether that factors into the plot or not, fans were hyped at seeing Cardellini in the latest trailer, as you can see from the reactions below.
There’s a little over a month left until Hawkeye arrives, and the holiday-themed adventure promises to be a little less thematically heavy than The Falcon and the Winter Soldier or Loki. That’s fine by us, because there isn’t anything wrong with the MCU having fun without worrying about the end of the universe as we know it.
