With Avengers: Endgame we had to say goodbye to some of the stalwarts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One character who some thought would bite the dust (well, get dusty, at least) but actually stayed around though was Jeremy Rennerís Hawkeye. However, while he didnít meet his end on the big screen, Rennerís Clint Barton probably wonít be wielding the bow indefinitely.
As first reported (https://www.criticalhit.net/gaming/hawkeye-series-in-works-for-disney-will-feature-kate-bishop/) back in April and then officially announced (https://www.criticalhit.net/entertainment/sdcc-2019-marvel-studios-officially-unveils-phase-four-line-up-and-more/) back at Comic-Con, weíre getting a Hawkeye series on Disney+ that will see Renner reprise his role as the fan-favourite archer. More excitingly though, the show will be finally be introducing the other Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, to the MCU with a good chance that we may just be seeing a passing of the baton (or bow) from one generation to the next. And according to Variety (https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/hawkeye-series-hailee-steinfeld-disney-plus-1203318859/), Oscar-nominee Hailee Steinfeld is currently being eyed by Marvel for the role of the young heroine. The report indicates that Steinfeld hasnít signed on yet, but Marvel has offered her the role so itís up to her now on whether she accepts.
