Hawkeye Getting Disney+ Series, Starring Jeremy Renner

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in Avengers

Disney is hoping high-profile series and films featuring some of its biggest properties will be enough to compete with Netflix when their streaming service, Disney+, launches later this year. No word yet on how all these series will fit into the greater MCU timeline, so don't treat this Hawkeye announcement as confirmation that our boy will survive Endgame. In Avengers: Infinity War (2017) we saw what happens when Thanos' fingers snap while in Avengers: Endgame, we will see the remaining superheroes do whatever it takes to defeat Thanos and avenge the fallen.

This afternoon, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Disney is developing a live-action Hawkeye miniseries starring Jeremy Renner, who's played the character in the MCU since the first Thor movie in 2011, for its upcoming streaming platform.

Per our sister site Variety, Disney+ is now developing the project, which will find Renner's Clint Barton passing the world-saving torch to Kate Bishop. Now, there's a new report that another second-tier character will be getting their own series in the form of Hawkeye. The show will apparently cover his passing on the mantle of Hawkeye to Kate Bishop, who comic book readers will recognize from the source material.
