Disney+ Grabs Jeremy Renner to Reprise His Role as Hawkeye in Limited Series
According to Variety, the series will follow Clint Barton as he passes the role of Hawkeye to Kate Bishop.
In just a few weeks time, Marvel will be releasing Avengers Endgame. April, 26th to be exact. The small screen, however, seems to be picking up a lot of momentum as of late. With streaming services becoming the normal way in which people watch shows, Disney is ramping up their offerings. Disney+ streaming will be having a limited run with Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye passing the torch over to Kate Bishop in his stand-alone series. Disney and Marvel have yet to confirm the series is officially happening. It is reported that Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role. Clint Barton will be training a new archer to become the master the Universe needs.
It seems logical for Marvel stars jumping into limited series runs and taking on their current roles. A lot of the characters have smaller screen time than the other stars. The movies themselves have such major celebrities in them, it can be challenging to give everyone the time that is needed for their character. This is in-line with what the comic book formats already do. Expanding on characters is nothing new. It would seem that Disney is building up its original content. Wondering how sustainable it will be moving forward. Barton is seen as weak in comparison to other characters with genetic enhancements and armored suits. The role of Hawkeye though is probably one of the most naturally gifted of the human Avengers.
Variety has learned from sources that Disney’s upcoming streaming service is officially developing a limited series based on the archery ace Marvel character with Renner attached to star. The project is said to be an adventure series in which Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye will pass the torch to Kate Bishop. Bishop is a Marvel Comics character who took up the Hawkeye mantle after Barton. She is also a member of the group known as the Young Avengers. Disney and Marvel declined to comment. Reps for Renner declined to comment.Joe Otterson, Variet
