Disney+ is getting in the holiday spirit with some Hawkeye-themed digital Christmas cards.
Posted on the Disney Twitter account, the cards highlight the cast of the six-episode Disney+series and spotlights some memorable moments from the drama, including Hawkeye / Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) destroying her college’s bell tower and the time she and Hawkeye / Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) were captured and forced to sit on kiddie rides by the Tracksuit Mafia. One card even places Clint in Santa’s workshop, although the toys have been replaced by all kinds of trick arrows.

Premiering on Disney+ in November, Hawkeye is a holiday-themed adventure that follows the two Hawkeyes as they face off against the Tracksuit Mafia and their leaders, Kazi (Fra Fee) and Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox). The series also introduced Kate’s mother Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) and Swordsman / Jack Duquesne (Tony Dalton) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and featured the returns of Linda Cardellini’s Laura Barton and Florence Pugh’s Black Widow / Yelena Belova from previous MCU projects.
While Kazi and Maya were the main antagonists throughout the series, Episode 5 revealed that the man pulling these strings was none other than Kingpin / Wilson Fisk himself, played by Daredevil’s Vincent D’Onofrio. According to D’Onofrio, the Hawkeye and Daredevil versions of the villains are one in the same. “It’s the same Kingpin,” the actor said. “He obviously has more physical strength and can take a lot more physical abuse. But from a story point of view, it was discussed that this is after the Blip, that he is the same guy that was in Daredevil, but he’s lost some of his power, and that my arc in Hawkeye is that I want my power back.”
The season finale of Hawkeye, “So This Is Christmas?” ended with Maya supposedly killing Kingpin after she learned that he was responsible for her father’s death. This story will seemingly continue in Echo, a spinoff starring Cox, which will see Maya transition into the titular hero.
As for the two Hawkeyes, their future remains up in the air. “I cannot speak to future plans in the tradition of secrecy,” director and executive producer Rhys Thomas said. “Again, the show coming out, you never know how it’s going to be received, and it has been amazing to see how warmly people have taken it and enjoyed it. And it’s been great to see [Hailee Steinfeld’s] character embraced and sort of land so firmly in the MCU. I sincerely look forward to where that character goes next. And yes, I loved walking on the streets of the MCU and would gladly enjoy doing it again.”
