Hawkeye battles the tracksuit mafia in a new comedic fight scene using candy canes, silver garlands, pine wreaths, and Christmas gifts used as weapons during an updated Holiday Stunt Show on the Avengers campus at Disney California Adventure.
The Disneyland animation team refreshed the ‘Avengers Assemble’ stunt show in the Marvel-themed country with a new winter vacation theme, music, and fight scenes.
The new “Avengers Assemble” vacation stunt show is typically played half a dozen times a day on the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure between 11 am and 5 pm.

The “Avengers Assemble” stunt show update stars Clint Barton and Kate Bishop from the new “Hawkeye” show on the Disney + streaming service. Marvel characters regularly make appearances on DCA’s Avengers campus to mark the launch of new Disney + shows.
Bishop reprizes Barton’s Hawkeye coat from the Marvel comics. Viewers will have to wait and see if the same story arc plays out for Barton (played by Jeremy Renner) and Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld) in the new Disney + series.
During the new holiday stunt show “Avengers Assemble,” Barton sprinkles the fight sequences with a series of lame jokes about ringing his Jingle Bell and making the villain list.
“How about your Christmas present for me, that’s not a bad pun anymore,” Bishop said during the show.
Barton dons a Santa hat on the balcony of Avengers HQ in Marvel-themed country during choreographed fight sequences against the Tracksuit Mafia, a group of Russian gangsters who run a criminal ring in New York City.
Bishop comes to the rescue just as the tracksuit mafia prepares to throw Barton from the balcony of Avengers headquarters just below the Quinjet docked on the roof.

An arrow shot at a control panel by Bishop launches a holiday music playlist that includes “Jingle Bells”, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, “Hallelujah”, “Russian Dance” from the ballet “The Nutcracker” and “Auld Lang Syne” – which serve as the soundtrack for the combat sequences.
The action-packed fight scenes find the heroes and villains engaged in hand-to-hand combat using oversized candy canes with the villains eventually overpowered with wreath strands and lassoing with oversized Christmas wreaths. A plastic snowman lawn decoration and a large gift wrapped in a bow even play a part in the playful fight scenes filled with laughter and laughter as much as punching and kicking.

The 5-minute show ends with a group photo of Christmas cards with Shang-Chi, Captain America, Captain Marvel and Thor after the Hawkeye superheroes finish “decorating” the Avengers seat for the holidays.
“We could have ruined the campus Christmas party,” Bishop said at the end of the show.
“This is usually how our holiday season ends,” says Captain America.
