Marvel Studios’ television productions on Disney+ will be far more connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe than any of the other shows that came before it. That’s because most of the A-listers will be headlining these shows. One that is of particular interest is Hawkeye, which will draw from Matt Fraction and David Aja‘s series of the same name. In it, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) forges a partnership with Kate Bishop, and together they fight for justice. And now, Marvel may have found their Bishop.
New reports confirm that an offer has been made to Hailee Steinfeld (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, True Grit, Bumblebee) to play the role of the young archer who, in the comics, eventually takes up the role of Hawkeye. More on the report below.
Disney has been slowly announcing some exciting titles that they will be adding to their subscription-based streaming service, Disney+. We already know a lot about their Loki show, which will have some Quantum Leap vibes to it. There’s also the Falcon and The Winter Soldier show, as well as The Vision and Scarlet Witch. Now you can expect to see a Hawkeye series as well.
Reports confirm Jeremy Renner will reprise his role for the show, which is currently under development. But it won’t be the straightforward Hawkeye show. These reports say Kate Bishop will have a role in it. More on the story below.

Joe Quesada announced a bevy of new Marvel projects at his annual Cup O’ Joe panel at WonderCon 2011. Sure there’s tons of focus on the upcoming Captain America and Thor films, but at this panel there were plenty of tasty comic book announcements too. Perhaps the most notable of these announcements was that writer Warren Ellis and artist Jamie McKelvie will be teaming up to take over Secret Avengers in August. All that Quesada would say about Ellis’ run on the series is that the stories will be of the single-issue variety. So, sounds like no big story arc this time around.
