Hawkeye Coming to Disney +

Hawkeye the Latest MCU Character Coming to Disney+

 

News has recently broken that everybody’s favorite purple-clad, bow an arrow-wielding hero is getting his own show on Disney+. Yes, Jeremy Renner apparently survives Avengers: Endgame and is coming to Disney’s new streaming service Disney+. The Nerdist notes that like the other MCU Disney+ shows it will be a limited series. That and it will center on the training of another Hawkeye in Kate Bishop!

Bows and Arrows

There are a few things to unpack with this news. First Clint Barton is donning his Ronin moniker in Avenger: Endgame. So, does he go back to Hawkeye or will he still be Ronin in the series? We also see in the Avengers: Endgame trailer Hawkeye training what looks like a teenage girl with a bow and arrow, before the snap. Is that his daughter or is that Kate Bishop in the movie? 

Another interesting point The Nerdist article brings up is, we really do not know much about Clint Barton and his past in the MCU. We know he has a family and that he has worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. but that is about it. Will the show focus more on his past while he is also training Kate Bishop to take on the Hawkeye mantle?

Hawkguy

Since the news broke I have seen a lot of people post they want the series based on the fabled Matt Fraction, David Aja, and many other contributors “Hawkguy” run from 2012-2015. I loved this series like so many other people, but that “Hawkguy” and the Hawkeye of the MCU are two very different characters. I suspect that they may pull some story points form that run. Mainly ‘pizza dog”, but other than that it would be rough to try and interpret that whole storyline with the current Clint Barton in the MCU. 

Like most stuff, I am sure they will pull some stuff from the comics for Clint’s backstory and Kate Bishop’s. There will be things that are wholly original to the MCU and its interpretation of these characters. Obviously, like all the speculated MCU Disney+ shows we don’t know anything really. This is all just speculation. 

Are you excited for a limited Hawkeye series on Disney+? Any casting choices you would like to see for Kate Bishop? Or any storylines from the comics would you like to see interpreted? Let us know in the comments.
