We’ll Get a Second Serving of Hawkeye for Thanksgiving

This lil’ teaser is titled “Change of Plans,” which is a cute way to nod at what Marvel did here: Hawkeye, which begins on November 24th, is now getting a two-episode premiere. Assuming the show doesn’t skip any weeks, that has Hawkeye‘s six episodes wrapping up just in time for Christmas—with a little break before Disney+ is breathing down our necks again about The Book of Boba Fett.

Other than being much shorter, this teaser isn’t drastically different from the first trailer, though some of the scenes are cut a little differently. This one’s less about the Barton family’s Christmas potentially being ruined by Hawkeye’s hero hijinks, and more about the dynamic between Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). Trick arrows? People trying to kill them? All in the holiday spirit!

It’s more than a little bit jarring to shift from Ronin-era Hawkeye—he of the many murders—to this version of Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), who’s back to being dryly funny and put-upon in a very carefully calibrated way. He has to be a little wry and world-weary in order to be in the right place to take on a protégé. But we’re not forgetting where’s been, Marvel, and you can’t make us.

The first two episodes of Hawkeye premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, November 24.
