Reports of Hawkeye returning in his own series have been around for a long time and SDCC 2019 confirmed that Jeremy Renner would be returning as Hawkeye. He is the only original Avenger out of the six to get his own Disney+ series in the Marvel Phase four lineup.
Clint Barton aka Hawkeye will probably pass his mantle to Kate Bishop, who will be debuting in the MCU. Her appearance is eagerly awaited and as expected, rumors surrounding casting are doing the rounds. Names that have popped up include Hailee Steinfeld, the Bumblebee actress as the front runner. According to variety, she has already been offered the role by Disney.
The other vital casting details remain hidden and we don’t know much about the series plot at the moment either. Getting an Oscar-nominee actor for such a role indicates that Disney is taking the role very very seriously. The introduction of Kate Bishop to the Marvel Cinematic Universe may pave the way for the Young Avengers.
Hopefully, the show will pave her way to the mainstream movies and she will become an integral part of the MCU.
More about the Hawkeye series
Honestly, Hawkeye is one of the most underrated Avengers’ and one can’t help but feel some sympathy for him. He might not excite us like the Loki series or Wanda Vision, but the story of Hawkeye and his struggles with his family would make for an all-round cinematic experience rather than the typical comic book movie experience. Passing his mantle and resting for good would pave the way for the future. The show would also explore the Ronin side and what happened to Hawkeye between the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
The release date of Hawkeye will fall between What If..? animated series and Thor: Love and Thunder, in 2021.
