According to a report from Variety, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye may be bringing his unique brand of sharpshooting to the Disney+ streaming service to headline his very own series. The marksman will not be completely alone, as the series is said to follow his relationship with young trainee Kate Bishop, his predecessor/protege in the comics.
This is the latest in a line of MCU characters slated to receive a series on Disney+. Additional projects include a show pairing Sam Wilson/Falcon and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, and another revolved around Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision, and Loki. The shows are expected to have a limited run of six to eight episodes.
Renner previously expressed interest in a Hawkeye series at Silicon Valley Comic Con in 2016, saying: “I think that’s actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it. I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you’re doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I’d be open to it. Not up to me, though.
Neither Marvel or Disney have confirmed the announcement, as of yet. In the meantime, fans can catch Renner’s Hawkeye on the big screen in Avengers: Endgame when it hits theaters on April 26, 2019.
