Marvel Developing Hawkeye Series For Disney+; Jeremy Renner To Star!

No Comments
A Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner is in the works at Disney+!

Avengers: Endgame won't be the last time we see Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton as a Hawkeye series in the works at Disney+.

Before Netflix had started cutting ties with Marvel, fans were urging for a Hawkeye series on the streaming platform. Renner himself said that he would be definitely open to such a project. Even though the Marvel/Netflix partnership is almost over, the master archer is finally getting his own show.

Variety is reporting that a standalone series for Hawkeye is in development at The Walt Disney Company's upcoming streaming service Disney+. It will feature Renner in the role that he has already portrayed in four different Marvel Cinematic Universe installments, with Avengers: Endgame set to be the fifth one. Disney, Marvel as well as representatives for the two-time Academy Award nominee have declined to comment on the story.

The Hawkeye series doesn't appear to have a showrunner attached yet. But one thing is certain: the limited series, like some other Disney+ ventures, will be produced by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige, and NOT Marvel Television and Jeph Loeb. Variety describes the project as an adventure series in which Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, will pass the torch to Kate Bishop.

In case you didn't know, Kate Bishop is Clint Barton's protégé in the pages of Marvel Comics and the third character (first female) to take on the mantle of Hawkeye. The second Avengers: Endgame trailer included a brief shot of Clint training a young brunette girl at archery. Many fans believe that the particular girl is none other than Kate. And to be honest, that certainly seems to be the case right now.

Apart from Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, a few other MCU characters are also getting their own shows at Disney+. A standalone series for Tom Hiddleston's Loki is being developed with Rick and Morty's Michael Waldron serving as the showrunner. A Falcon and Winter Soldier team-up series, with Empire's Malcolm Spellman, and another series titled The Vision and Scarlet Witch, with Captain Marvel scribe Jac Schaeffer attached as the showrunner, are also in the works.

According to Variety, these Marvel Studios-produced Disney+ series are each expected to consist of six to eight episodes. They are also getting larger budgets compared to the shows produced by Marvel Television.
