Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner in development at Disney+
Variety is reporting that Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Endgame) will be reprising his Hawkeye character in a series currently in development at Disney+.
The project is a limited series based on the Marvel character and is said to be an adventure series in which Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye, will pass the torch to Kate Bishop. Bishop is a Marvel Comics character who took up the Hawkeye mantle after Barton and is also a member of the group known as the Young Avengers.
The Hawkeye series is the latest limited series in the works at Disney’s upcoming streamer. Other projects include series that will center on Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Vision, and the Scarlet Witch. The series, which are all expected to run between six to eight episodes, will be produced by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige.
Hawkeye will next be seen in this month’s Avengers: Endgame. Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War saw the titular superhero team take the fight to Thanos in order to stop his attempt at exterminating half of the universe’s population with the Infinity stones. But it was to no avail, as he was able to successfully collect them all and snap his fingers, wiping out half of all life from existence in a cloud of ash.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Confirmed cast members for the fourth Avengers film so far includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Sean Gunn, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Katherine Langford and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Endgame will open on April 26.
