Hawkeye Clip Officially Welcomes the Avenger's Comic Foes to the MCU

A fan-favorite group of villains wants to fight against the Avenging Archer in a new clip from Hawkeye.

The latest Hawkeye clip shows Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop in the middle of an intense conversation when a Molotov cocktail crashes through a nearby window. When Clint races to see who threw it at them, he spots an ensemble of goons in matching tracksuits, collectively known as the Tracksuit Mafia. The group continues their attack while taunting Hawkeye to come downstairs, prompting Clint and Kate to retaliate and set one of them on fire, while they themselves slowly become surrounded by the flames caused by the cocktails.

In the comics, the gang, also known as the Tracksuit Draculas, are known primarily for their enthusiastic and excessive use of the word "bro." They first appeared in Hawkeye #1 by Matt Fraction and David Aja, where they were shown abusing the one-eyed pizza-loving dog Lucky. After Clint rescued Lucky from their "care," the Tracksuit Draculas made it their goal to take down Hawkeye by any means necessary, aligning themselves with the Avenger's other deadly enemies to do so. The creators of the Hawkeye television series have cited this specific run on the character as a primary influence for the show, making the inclusion of the fan-favorite villains a natural fit.

While the Tracksuit Draculas are arguably the most-beloved villains to face off against Clint and Kate, they are not the deadliest characters set to appear in Hawkeye. Actor Fra Fee will be playing the Clown, an assassin who infamously killed one of Clint's neighbors and antagonized Clint's family to send a message in the comic book source material. Additionally, Hawkeye will introduce Alaqua Cox as Echo, another New York City vigilante. The character is a Deaf martial artist with her own hidden agenda, who is shown to team up with Fee's Clown at some point in the show. Disney has announced that there will be an Echo series spinning out of Hawkeye, making her one of the most important characters to keep an eye on.

With so many foes fighting against Kate and Clint, the two will be in need of some new allies. Luckily, Kate has the support of her mother Eleanor, played by Vera Farmiga. Footage from Hawkeye shows that the two archers will be crossing paths with Kate's mom as they prepare to face off against an Avengers-level threat. However, given Eleanor's villainous comic book connections, they may be looking for help in all the wrong places.

In Hawkeye, Clint becomes a mentor to Kate. Together, the two have to tackle a threat from Clint's past that comes back to haunt him in the days leading up to Christmas. The show is set to debut with a two-episode season premiere on Nov. 24, exclusively on Disney+.
