Hawkeye Series’ working title pays homage to first Kate Bishop comics
According to Murphy’s Multiverse, the working title for Disney+‘s upcoming Hawkeye series will be Anchor Point, which is actually a nod to the first volume of Kelly Thompson’s fan-favorite comic book series that was published in 2017. Titled as Vol.1: Anchor Points, it was Kate Bishop’s first solo comic series after appearing in the Young Avengers issues. However, it remains unclear whether the highly-anticipated MCU series would also be based on the comics’ storyline or not.
The Hawkeye limited series will see Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Clint Barton, with the story also set to introduce his protege Kate Bishop, who still hasn’t been officially cast yet with Hailee Steinfeld reportedly in talks for the role.
In the comics, Bishop becomes Hawkeye after Clint Barton and is also a member of the Young Avengers. Disney has not yet confirmed if they have plans to give Bishop her own spinoff show or have her appear in the MCU down the road, but it is certainly a possibility. Hawkeye will premiere in Fall 2021 on Disney+.
Disney is developing multiple limited series featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and WandaVision being two of the shows in development. Mackie, Stan, Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will reprise their roles for their respective series.
