Hot on the heels of WandaVision, The Falcon & the Winter Soldier, Loki and What If…?, Clint Barton is here to bring some festive cheer to the MCU in the newest Marvel TV series, Hawkeye.

After months of waiting, the new series finally arrived on Disney+ on November 24th but only two episodes were made available on launch day.

As a result, Marvel fans have wasted no time in asking when episode 3 of Hawkeye will be released on Disney+.

Hawkeye episodes 1 and 2 recap

Hawkeye began in rip-roaring fashion as its first two episodes arrived on Disney+ on November 24th.

Set following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the series continues the story of Clint Barton and sees him trying to live a peaceful life alongside his family, but it doesn’t last long.

Episode 1 introduces us to Kate Bishop, who was saved by Hawkeye during the Battle of New York and has aspired to become an archer ever since.

Kate discovers that her mother’s new fiancé, Jack Duquesne is involved in some shady dealings after stumbling on an underground auction that is selling stolen gear from the Avengers compound.

The stolen haul includes Clint Barton’s Ronin suit, which Kate steals before getting into a scrap with a gang of thugs known as the Tracksuit Mafia.

Clint sees a news report claiming that Ronin has returned and he goes to track down Kate.

In episode 2, Clint gets Kate to safety while sending his family away, promising to return to them by the time Christmas comes around.

However, when Clint gets himself captured by the Tracksuit Mafia gang, Kate attempts to be the one to rescue him but ends up in captivity as well.

How many episodes in total?

Hawkeye will consist of six episodes in total.

The episode count should come as little surprise as both The Falcon & the Winter Soldier and Loki both featured six episodes as well.

Two episodes of Hawkeye were released on launch day while one new episode will be following each week thereafter.

As a result, the sixth and final episode will be arriving on Disney+ on December 22nd, just in time for Christmas.
