Disney+ continues to unveil an impressive slate of programming, as Variety reports that a Hawkeye series is in development at the streaming service.
The series would focus on the Avenging Archer, played once again by Jeremy Renner, as he trains newcomer Kate Bishop to take up his mantle. Bishop helped form the superhero group known as the Young Avengers. It is also unclear whether this series would take place before or after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Renner has appeared as Hawkeye, also known as Clint Barton, in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films, such as Thor, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War. His next appearance in the MCU will be Avengers: Endgame. Renner has received Oscar-nominations for his roles in The Hurt Locker, The Town, American Hustle, Arrival, and Wind River.
