Disney’s streaming service, Disney+ is reportedly working on a standalone Hawkeye series. The actor who portrays the role in the Marvel movies, Jeremy Renner is apparently signed on to reprise his role for the Hawkeye series, which is set to be developed exclusively for the new streaming service from Disney.
According to reports, the new Hawkeye series will follow the adventures of archery superhero, Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (reprised by Jeremy Renner) who is training a protege, Kate Bishop. She’s a member of the Marvel group, known as the Young Avengers. She will be the first female to take the Hawkeye character name.
Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye first appeared in a cameo in 2011’s Thor movie. He reprised the role for The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Captain America: Civil War (2016). He is in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame movie, which hits cinemas on 26 April 2019.
The Hawkeye series will follow Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige’s plans to create marvel miniseries (consisting of 6 to 8 episodes) that feature the story arcs of Marvel characters who don’t have their own standalone movies. This will give fans the opportunity to get to know some of the less blockbuster characters like Iron Man, Spider-Man and Captain Marvel that got their own standalone Marvel movies.
The Hawkeye series will join other Marvel miniseries planned for the upcoming Disney streaming service, which includes a Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston and a series focused on Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.
The Disney+ streaming service is set to launch later this year, so we should start getting proper confirmation of what to expect from this new streaming service from Disney.
