As of right now, Marvel Studios has a number of different productions in various stages of development, including a number of new TV shows. This includes a show revolving around founding Avenger Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner’s Disney+ show wrapped filming just a few weeks ago, but fans are now even closer to getting the series. The directors, Bert & Bertie, recently shared an update with fans, and it’s a very tasty-looking one at that.
There’s no confirmed release date for Hawkeye as of yet (though reports indicate that it could drop later this year), but the fact that the directors have made it this far means fans are one step closer to being reunited with Clint Barton and meeting Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop -- and it's been a long road. For a while, Steinfeld was only rumored to be taking up the Hawkeye mantle, before it was finally confirmed that she would indeed be portraying the co-lead.
Joining Renner and Steinfeld in the Marvel and Disney+ series are Black Widow’s Florence Pugh, who will be reprising her role as assassin/spy Yelena Belova, Better Call Saul’s Tony Dalton, Oscar-nominated actress Vera Farmiga (portraying Kate’s mother Eleanor), as well as Les Miserables’ Fra Fee, newcomer Alaqua Cox (who plays the role of Echo), and Fargo’s Zahn McClarnon. While we don't know how these characters will come together yet, Matt Fraction's Hawkeye comics run may give viewers a better idea of what to expect.
Following a year with no Marvel content, the studio has been heavy on the beginning of MCU Phase Four this year. Besides the Disney+ shows (which have already seen big numbers on the streaming service), fans are getting excited for the arrival of Black Widow, which will finally make its debut in theaters and on Disney+ later this summer. After that, fans can expect new Marvel movies spread over the last few months of this year. By the time Black Widow finally arrives, it will have been slightly over two years since Spider-Man: Far From Home released, marking the end of Phase Three and the beginning of an MCU drought.
Even though there is no set date yet for Hawkeye, the fact that the directors are finishing their cuts means it’s only a matter of time before the first trailer is released and we get to see Clint Barton gearing up alongside his protégé. While you wait for that reveal, check out our schedule of summer TV shows to see what series to look forward to!
