Hawkeye has finally landed on Disney Plus, with Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Clint Barton.

Also stepping into the superhero limelight is Hailee Steinfield in the fan-favourite role of Kate Bishop.

Adapting much of the much-loved Matt Fraction comic book run, Hawkeye centres around Barton after the events of Avengers: Endgame when he comes face to face with superfan Bishop.

As the two archers team up, they find themselves facing a number of enemies including the criminal Echo/Maya Lopez, Kate’s stepfather Jack Duquesne and another Black Widow, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh).

In this way, the series welcomes back a host of familiar faces but also introduces new cast members to the MCU, with Vera Farmiga being added to the franchise’s vast roster, plus the addition of Fra Free as Kazi who has teased his future in the franchise.

Check out our complete guide to the Hawkeye cast below.

Hailee Steinfeld plays Kate Bishop / Hawkeye

Who is Kate Bishop / Hawkeye? Kate Bishop is a young woman from a wealthy family, who has become an admirer of Clint Barton's superheroics during his time in the public eye. She sets out to be another bow-and-arrow wielding hero, first adopting his retired Ronin persona and later fighting alongside him against a criminal plot. In the comic books, Bishop sets up the Young Avengers and inherits the Hawkeye moniker after Clint retires.

What else has Hailee Steinfeld been in? Steinfeld burst onto the scene in 2010 with a breakout performance in Western drama True Grit, which earned her an Academy Award nomination at just 13 years old. Her performance in Pitch Perfect 2 brought more recognition as well as a recording contract, which has ultimately led to lead roles in Transformers spin-off Bumblebee and Apple TV+ comedy Dickinson. Steinfeld has also proven herself as a voice actor through playing Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Vi in League of Legends streaming series Arcane.

Jeremy Renner plays Clint Barton / Hawkeye

Who is Clint Barton/Hawkeye? Clint Barton is a former SHIELD agent and founding member of the Avengers, having fought alongside them at the Battle of New York (after a brief period spent mind-controlled by Loki). He sided with Captain America during the Civil War, which landed him in prison for a short time, but he was soon released under a plea deal that allowed him to return to his family home in the countryside. There he resides with wife Laura, and children Lila, Cooper and Nathaniel, all of whom were snapped out of existence by Thanos during the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

The devastating loss sent Barton on a dark path, taking on the identity of Ronin and targeting criminal gangs who survived the snap for brutal elimination. It's not clear how many lives he took during that time, but he's said to have caused chaos throughout the underworld, which is why a copycat vigilante quickly gets the attention of the press. Barton investigates the matter while on a festive trip to New York City, having had his family brought back to him following the Avengers' mighty victory in 2019's Endgame.

The new Marvel series centres around Barton’s attempts to move on from the traumatic events of Avengers: Endgame, digging up his past in the process.

Talking about how the TV series Hawkeye centres around Barton’s past and personal life, the show’s executive producer Trinh Tran recently told Den of Geek: “Every time we start developing a project, we are always talking about how we set it apart from everything else that we’ve done.

“With Falcon and Winter Soldier, with WandaVision and Loki, they’re all different,” she added. “In terms of Hawkeye, how can we set that apart from everything else? One way was that we didn’t want to do another world-ending catastrophe where the heroes are saving their universe. It made sense for Clint’s story to be more personal.”

What else has Jeremy Renner been in? Outside of his Marvel work, Renner is known for being a two-time Oscar nominee for his performances in Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker and Ben Affleck's The Town. He has also received praise for turns in American Hustle, Arrival and Wind River, while his blockbuster work includes The Bourne Legacy, the Mission: Impossible franchise, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Who is Lucky the Pizza Dog? A fan-favourite Marvel character from the Hawkeye comic, Lucky the Pizza Dog has bagged a recurring role in the Disney Plus series.

As of yet, the dog hasn’t actually been named Lucky on the TV show, but the fluffy friend did perk up when Bishop referred to him as “Pizza Dog”.

In the comic books, Clint rescues Lucky from a vicious member of the “Tracksuit Mafia” gang, who are hellbent on taking control of Hawkeye’s apartment building. After he's rescued, Lucky quickly becomes renowned for his love of pizza and loyalty to Kate Bishop.

"The dog couldn't be cuter. I ended up really liking the dog," Renner recently told Marvel.com. "I'm not sure if [Clint's] supposed to be [friendly] towards him. I was just sitting down and he's by me, he's looking at me cute. Hot breath coming on me. He was a wonderful contribution to the show. He's a good boy."

"It was so fun; I am such a dog lover," Steinfeld agreed. "The minute I knew Pizza Dog was as much a part of this show as he is, I was very excited."

What else has Jolt been in? Lucky is played by puppy actor Jolt, who has her own Instagram account, which has been sending Hawkeye fans wild. Prior to Hawkeye, Jolt appeared in various adverts, but this is the dog's first big film role.
