There are rumors that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is now getting his own TV series on upcoming streaming service Disney+. Here’s everything we know about the most badass bowman in the MCU getting a TV show:
Release Date Of Hawkeye On Disney+
There is no exact release date of the series. According to sources, Hawkeye is currently in development and is set to release on Disney+ in 2021.
Cast Of The Show
Jeremy Renner will once again reprise his role as Hawkeye AKA Clint Barton, making his sixth time performing the character on screen.
It’s currently not been officially approved who will perform as Kate Bishop, a young woman who Hawkeye will train into an awesome archer, though Hailee Steinfeld has obviously been given the crucial role. You can witness Clint Barton and Kate Bishop together in action on Disney+.
In a recent interview, Hailee Steinfeld suggested that she might not be able to take on the role, after all.
Notably, Kate Bishop is a diverse character from the girl Hawkeye trained in Avengers: Endgame, who was his daughter Lila Barton.
It’s assumed that Linda Cardellini, who performed as Clint’s wife Laura in the Marvel movies, will make an appearance on the show, but this is not yet confirmed.
Plot Of The Series
Although large parts of the story are unknown, Marvel has stated that the series will center on Hawkeye passing on his mantle and bow to the young Kate Bishop. We also understand that the series will be set after the events of Avengers: Endgame and may explore Hawkeye’s years as the vigilante Ronin, which were glimpsed in that movie.
As the series is taking place towards the conclusion of phase four of the MCU, it may set up events for a later Avengers film.
