Hawkeye to Pass the Bow to Kate Bishop in New Disney+ Series


With Disney set to make more announcements about its upcoming streaming service, Disney+, at tomorrow’s Disney Investor Day, more and more details are leaking early. The latest info comes from Variety, which has learned that Disney+ is developing a limited series featuring Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to the trade, the adventure series will have Renner’s Clint Barton pass the bow to Kate Bishop, a Marvel Comics character who took up the Hawkeye mantle after Barton and a member of the Young Avengers.

Hawkeye will next appear in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, opening in theaters on April 26th.

Other Marvel series in the works include a live-action series starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, The Vision and Scarlet Witch, and a team-up of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The series are all expected to be six to eight episodes long.

The robust slate of Disney+ content currently in production includes the first-ever live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian; an original series based on Disney Channel’s High School Musical titled High School Musical: The Musical: The Series; Monsters at Work, an animated series based on Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. franchise; a new season of the Star Wars animated series Clone Wars; a live-action version of the animated classic Lady and the Tramp; and a number of original docu-series.

A live-action Marvel series starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, The Vision and Scarlet Witch, a team-up of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a second Star Wars series starring Diego Luna (learn more here), and other high-profile projects are also in development.

Jon Favreau is writing and executive producing The Mandalorian for Disney+. The live-action series, which is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, is currently in production with a lineup of directors that include Deborah Chow (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok).

Disney+ is scheduled to launch in the U.S. in late 2019.
