Jeremy Renner to reprise his role as archer Clint Barton
News from Hollywood reveals that the Marvel series will air on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. The project is planned as a graduation point for Barton where he is able to pass on the Hawkeye mantle to his young protégé Kate Bishop, who in the comics is a member of the Young Avengers. The show is expected to have a run of only six to eight episodes.
Bishop has starred in the Hawkeye series from Matt Fraction and Alex Aja. Launched in 2012, the comic book series centered on the student-teacher relationship between Barton and Bishop. The Hawkeye miniseries is the latest to join the list of Disney+ projects starring Marvel Cinematic Universe talent – Tom Hiddleston, Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen, and Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
The streaming service has two unscripted Marvel shows in the works – 616 and Hero Project – that were unveiled recently. Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame is slated to be released worldwide on April 26.
