New Hawkeye Set Photos Tease 2025 Setting and Major Plot Point
A new batch of behind-the-scenes photos from the New York City set of Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series Hawkeye have surfaced online through Twitter which you can check out below, featuring Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop along with the adorable Lucky the Pizza Dog. In one of the set photos which features a Chinese New Year poster, it seemingly confirmed that the series will be set two years after Avengers: Endgame in 2025.
In addition, eagle-eyed fans have also spotted Renner wearing an hearing aid in the set photos which fueled speculations that Marvel studios would finally be adapting one of Hawkeye’s prominent storylines from the comics. It’s also interesting to note that in the newly released set photos, Renner and Steinfeld are seen sitting in front of a door which featured a sign that reportedly translates to “Auditory Therapist.”
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 is officially being portrayed by Hailee Steinfeld.
It will be directed by Amber Finlayson and Katie Ellwood, aka Bert and Bertie, who are best known for their work on Troop Zero, and Rhys Thomas (Staten Island Summer). Hawkeye is expected to debut in Fall 2021 on Disney+.
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.
The project’s working title “Anchor Point” is actually serving as a homage 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’s still unknown if the said comics’ storyline would connect to the series’ plot or not.
