Production Wraps On Marvel’s ‘Hawkeye’ Series For Disney+
Production has wrapped on ‘Hawkeye‘, one of the numerous Marvel series coming to Disney+ over the next few years, star Jeremy Renner has announced.
Renner took to social media saying “Bravo to everyone @marvel @disneyplus, our entire crew, stunt team @heidimoneymaker and amazing cast for all the hard work out into this show!!! We can’t wait to share it. Thank you all for the incredible journey… #hawkeye.” Interestingly, a second post, which featured a battered and bruised behind-the-scenes photo of the actor, was captioned “This is not goodbye, but a see you soon. … Thank you cast, crew and Marvel,” which would seem to imply we may be seeing more of Hawkeye in the future. Whether that’s in the film or a second tv series remains to be seen.
As is normal at this point in proceedings, Marvel has yet to release an official synopsis for the series, but we do have a few bits of information about what is to come. We know the series will obviously feature Renner returning as Clint Barton, and also his protégé Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfield. In the comics, Bishop takes over the mantle of Hawkeye when Barton is presumed dead and goes on to become a member of the Young Avengers. From some of the on-set photos the cast has shared, it seems the series may cover some of Barton’s time during “the blip” when he ditched the Hawkeye persona to become the rather more violent vigilante Ronin. It also looks like SHIELD may be returning to the MCU, after Renner posted an on-set photo of his quiver which had the very distinct SHIELD logo imprinted on it, although it is possible that is from a flashback sequence.
Alongside Renner and Steinfield, the series stars Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, mother of Kate; Fra Fee as Kazimierz Kazimierczak, aka the mercenary villain Clown; Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne, aka Swordsman, a hero & villain in the comics, and a mentor to Barton; Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, aka Echo, a deaf native American character who has the ability to copy motion she sees; Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, Maya’s father, who in the comics in a henchman of Kingpin; And Brian d’Arcy James in an as-yet-undisclosed role. We’ll also be seeing some returning characters, with Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, sister of Black Widow, along with Ava Russo, Ben Sakamoto and Cade Woodward as Lila, Cooper and Nathaniel, the three children of Laura and Clint Barton.
‘Hawkeye‘ does not yet have an exact premiere date, but is currently set to land in late 2021 on Disney+. If you want to keep track of this show you can add it via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
