Hawkeye: Everything we know about Marvel’s Disney+ series

Clint Barton may be retiring, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe won’t be without a Hawkeye. In Hawkeye, the Marvel spinoff headed to Disney+, Jeremy Renner will return as the MCU’s resident archer to pass off his bow and arrows — and the Hawkeye code name — to a new generation.

Hawkeye won’t be on your TV for a while — Marvel won’t release the show until late 2021 — but the new Hawkeye is already a fan favorite in the comics, and she might have a high-profile actress bringing her to the screen. Here’s everything that we know about Hawkeye so far.

First trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series has arrived! We’ve finally got our first footage of Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, the Hawkeye-obsessed young woman who will inherit Clint Barton’s bow in what looks almost like Marvel’s attempt at a Christmas series. It’s the most action-packed, Christmas-themed trailer you’ll see today.

Photos and video from the set

Any Marvel movie filming in New York City is bound to get a lot of attention, but Hawkeye seems to have fully immersed itself in the city, with an enormous amount of amateur photo and video hitting the web. Check out some of the footage and photos below, including the first look at Vera Farmiga and Tony Dalton in costume.

Shortly after this announcement, our first set footage began to roll out. First, of Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld (playing Hawkeye’s successor, Kate Bishop) running into the subway. Then, later, we got our first glimpses of Steinfeld in full new-Hawkeye costume.

Concept art

Hawkeye is still a long way off, but artist Andy Park helped bring a little life to the project by sharing concept art of Kate Bishop as she’ll appear in the Disney+ series.

I hear some people are having MCU withdrawals. I feel ya. Waiting is tough I know! Here’s a little something- a concept design illustration I did for the upcoming Hawkeye @disneyplus show.

The star

Marvel is bringing in some impressive star power for Hawkeye, with Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld offered the lead role in the series (according to Variety). Steinfeld is expected to portray Kate Bishop, the teenage girl who adopted the archer’s code name in the popular Marvel Comics series Hawkeye and went on to become a member of the Young Avengers superhero team.

No stranger to superhero and genre fare, Steinfeld recently played the lead role in the positively reviewed Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee, and voiced one of the main characters in the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated feature. Previously, she was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in 2010’s True Grit.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Steinfeld described Bishop as “a badass.” “As I’m in the process of developing her, I’m working with some incredible filmmakers that are helping me bring her to life,” Steinfeld commented. “I can’t wait for people just to see how we are interpreting this character through the comics. In her own sort of ways, she’s such a badass. There’s no denying that. She’s so smart and witty and quick, and her physical ability to do so many things is through the roof. It’s really tested me, and it’s kept me going through quarantine, I will say, it’s given me a reason to stay with it.”

Release date and logo

At Comic-Con International 2019, Marvel unveiled its Phase 4 plans, including when we can expect to see Hawkeye grace the silver screen. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Hawkeye will debut in fall 2021, around the same time as Thor: Love and Thunder.

During the presentation, Marvel also shared Hawkeye‘s logo, which should look familiar to dedicated comic readers.
