While the trailer carries a rather unexpected festive feel to it - which we certainly aren't complaining about - it's fair to say that Hawkeye looks like it will really hit the bullseye in terms of bringing Jeremy Renner's arrow-shooting marksman Clint Barton to the small screen. Check out the brand-new teaser below:

As you can see, there's a lot of excitement going on, so much so that even eagle-eyed viewers will miss many things. So, we've assembled 5 Avengers references you may have missed in the new Hawkeye trailer!

Not seconds into the trailer, and we get a glimpse of our beloved Captain Steve Rogers - aka Captain America (aka Cap) - adorning billboards and pillars on a theater. The images revealed 'ROGERS THE MUSICAL', a concept which could justify an official MCU film in its own right - although we would need Chris Evans back. And the rest of the Avengers actors, for that matter - you too, Tony! As Hawkeye is set after Avengers: Endgame, it's likely this musical is a tribute of sorts to everyone's favorite war-hero-turned-superhero.

'Ronin' is the samurai-like alias Clint Barton went by during the five years between the Snap and the Blip, as seen in Avengers: Endgame, in which he took it upon himself to right as many wrongs around the world as he could, fuelled by the grief over his family having been turned to dust by Thanos. While it seems that Clint is back doing his Hawkeye-thing, the trailer directly references his time as his dark alter ego, showing footage from the fourth Avengers movie.

Not only will the new Hawkeye series see Clint Barton deal with enemies he made during his time as Ronin, but he will also encounter a new archer in the form of Hailee Steinfield's Kate Bishop, who refers to herself as "The World's Greatest Archer". In the trailer, we see the two team up to take on common enemies, while also cracking many jokes along the way. It would also appear that Kate becomes Clint's protegee, and is also starstruck when she meets him for the first time, which suggests she's a Hawkeye fan (just like us then).

In what is already a strangely uplifting trailer, with all the Christmas lights and Andy Williams' "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" (which definitely evokes some Home Alone 2: Lost in New York nostalgia), we get to see Rogers: The Musical in full swing, with onstage actors portraying Avengers such as Captain America, Loki, and Thor. As for whether we'll see any others, this remains to be seen - but as we said, this deserves its own show!

That shot from Avengers: Assemble

There are two iconic shots many people will remember from the original Avengers movie, with the first undoubtedly being the scene where the heroes 'round up' on the debris-littered streets of New York City, and the camera pans around our newly assembled team - Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. The second one is when Hawkeye jumps from a rooftop while turning back around to release an arrow at the enemy. There's a callback to this shot at the end of the Hawkeye trailer, in which both Hawkeye and Kate team up to recreate the iconic sequence.

Hawkeye will hit Disney+ on November 24, just in time for Christmas.
