A Certain Character is Missing From the First ‘Hawkeye’ Trailer & Fans Want to Know Why

The first trailer for Marvel’s Hawkeye was released. Fans wanted to know why a certain character wasn’t featured.

We’re right in the middle of Marvel’s What If…? But Marvel Studios isn’t stopping anytime soon. 

On Monday, September 13th, Marvel released the first trailer for what can be their most exciting show yet — Hawkeye. The trailer features Jeremy Renner returning as Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) who, before this show, was best known as the stepchild of The Avengers. The show is premiering on November 24th on Disney+ and, keeping with the holiday season, the trailer features “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year ” playing throughout.

The trailer also introduces fans to Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) a young archer who is playing the role of Hawkeye’s mentee. The trailer looks greats. However, fans noticed that there is someone missing from this trailer — Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) who made her debut as Natasha Romanoff’s sister (Scarlett Johansson) in Black Widow. 

Spoiler alert time. In the end of Black Widow, Romanoff (aka Black Widow) dies. During the post credits scene, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) — a character introduced during The Falcon and the Winter Soldier blames her death on Hawkeye. The implication was clear — Yelena was going to play a major role in Hawkeye. 

After the trailer was released, Yelena’s and Florence Pugh’s names were trending on Twitter. Despite not being in the trailer, fans were very excited about Yelena’s role on the show.

Hawkeye comes out on Disney+ on November 24th. The show will be six episodes and follows the success of WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki. Check out Hawkeye’s first trailer below.
