Peter Parker May Become Hawkeye In What If? Series

No Comments

New evidence suggests Peter Parker will be suiting up as Hawkeye in a future Marvel Cinematic Universe story. As pointed out by Brandon Daivs on Twitter, a preview of the upcoming animated series What If…? briefly teased what appears to be an image of Peter Parked suited up as Hawkeye. Have a look. 

The image looks an awful lot like Tom Holland, who has been playing Spider-Man in the MCU ever since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. What If..? will be taking a look at stories within alternate universes, providing us with new takes on characters we already know. For example, we are going to see Peggy Carter suit up as Captain Britain. She will be injected with the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers. 


Details about what specific stories will be told in the show have mostly been kept tightly under wraps. But we’ve been treated to brief looks here and there. It’s just that nobody noticed this Peter Parker/Hawkeye tease until now. The idea of Parker taking up the mantle of the MCU’s resident sharpshooter would fit the bill for the series. 


Quite a few MCU stars have already been confirmed for the show. Michael B. Jordan, Sebastian Stan, Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Haley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Karen Gillan, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Neal McDonough, Dominic Cooper, Sean Gunn, Natalie Portman, David Dastmalchian, Stanley Tucci, Taika Waititi, Toby Jones, Djimon Hounsou, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Rooker and Chris Sullivan will all be reprising their roles. It seems we can add Holland to that list. 


Meanwhile, Holland is getting ready to shoot Spider-Man 3. The sequel was originally supposed to shoot in July but production has been pushed back due to COVID-19. Jeremy Renner is also set to return as Clint Barton once more. Renner will star in a live-action Hawkeye series for the Disney+ streaming service. The show will see Clint passing the torch to Kate Bishop. 


Because What If…? is animated, work has been able to continue on the show during the production shutdown. 


“I normally split my day between my home studio and the Disney lot for dailies and reviews, but now we’re just doing it all remotely,” Marvel Animation head Stephan Franck said in a previous interview with Newsarama. “From what I hear across town, animation has been able to keep the shows in production with everyone safely working from home. Kudos to the studios for pivoting so fast to remote work.


What If…? is currently set to debut in summer 2021. 


So what do you think? Do you like the idea of Peter Parker as Hawkeye? Or do you think this is red herring? Join in on the conversation over on Facebook or Twitter
