Marvel Exec Reveals Where Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home Take Place

Fans have been looking forward to both Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home which is set to premiere soon before the year ends. Given that they are both set in New York and sometime after the events of Avengers: Endgame, fans are wondering if they take place concurrently. Now, we may have an answer to that (sort of).

In an interview with The Direct, Marvel Studios executive of production and development and Hawkeye executive producer Trinh Tran was asked if both New York-set stories take place around the same time. But as usual, just like the other answers that we get from people involved in the MCU, she played coy with her response. She said, "I can say that Hawkeye is after Endgame. But I do not want to spoil where it falls within the space of the other film. I think you will just have to wait and see and find out soon. It's not that long right?"

We do know that Hawkeye takes place during the holiday season in New York while the trailers of Spider-Man: No Way Home didn't hint that they might be setting it during that period so there is a possibility that they don't take place concurrently. However, there is a chance that timeline-wise, they might have a connection. Perhaps one of them will be reactive to the other (depending on the events that will happen which we still don't know yet).


Neither of them would be the first post-Endgame MCU project that takes place in New York. The events of the final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier took place during the Big Apple although it didn't suggest any connection to Hawkeye and the two Spider-Man films that are set after Avengers: Endgame.

Luckily, both of them will premiere very soon so we will find out if they take place concurrently. Will we see Spider-Man swing by for a second in Hawkeye or Clint Barton and Kate Bishop assist Spider-Man in his fight against the multiversal villains in No Way Home? We will get the answers in just a matter of time.
