Marvel fans can breathe a sigh of relief as it was confirmed that the reports surrounding Disney+’s Hawkeye show being canceled are false.
Earlier this week it was reported that the Hawkeye Disney + show was to be delayed indefinitely. The exact reasons for its supposed cancellation were unclear. Some say it is because of the recent scandals involving Jeremy Renner while others claim it was an issue of casting Kate Bishop.
It was a Twitter user that claimed that the reason for the cancellation of said Disney + show was because there was going to be a change of trajectory for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, now it appears those rumors are untrue as twitter user Julia Alexander has said it is entirely inaccurate.
In a direct quote, the Twitter user said, News: can absolutely confirm this is untrue. Disney contacts have vehemently denied it, calling it completely inaccurate. This is, of course, a huge sigh of relief for Marvel fans as they have suffered a few losses these past months.
Just last week, Doctor Strange 2 director Scott Derrickson left the director’s chair because of creative issues with Marvel even though he’s staying as executive producer. It was also just a few months ago that the Sony deal with Spider-Man was almost lost entirely.
However, despite these losses, it would seem now that the Hawkeye series is moving on full steam ahead as planned. Hawkeye is set to release in 2021, along with Falcon and The Winter Soldier. WandaVision and Loki are also set to release in 2021, with WandaVision currently in production.
Hawkeye is set to release in 2021 and sees Jeremy Renner returning as Clinton Barton/Hawkeye. It’s also believed that Hailee Steinfeld may play Katie Bishop but that hasn’t been confirmed.
