All about the Disney + show
Move over, Loki! Hawkeye is back with his own Disney + TV show – but this time around he’s not teaming up with the Avengers. He has a new sidekick named Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld.
Marvel studios Hawk Eye catches up with Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) after helping Captain America, Iron Man, and the rest of the team defeat Thanos in 2019 Avengers: Endgame.
The hero wielding a bow and arrows – who made his film debut in 2011 Thor – is one of the only original members of the Avengers still alive, which means he’s under a lot of pressure to defend Earth from all the villains that await him. One of them might even be a relative of the late Black Widow (Scarlett johansson), who lost his life in End of Game.
Disney + has kept the plot of the new six-part series a secret, but it is said to be an “adventure series” in which Clint “will pass the torch to Kate Bishop,” according to Variety.
Renner teased that Steinfeld’s character would play a big part in the show – while also being a bit of a pain behind Clint’s back.
“[Kate is] a 22 year old and she is a big fan of Hawkeye â, the Injured locker the actor said Weekly entertainment in July 2021. “She has a wonderfully boring and equally charming way about her, because she’s a Hawkeye fangirl.”
He continued, “The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems she brings into her life.”
Fortunately, art did not imitate life for Renner, who recounted GE that he helped his young costar acclimatize to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by “protecting her and giving her the CliffsNotes on how it goes with this kind of cinema: green screen, superhero life, all that”.
The Mayor of Kingstown alum didn’t just want to act in the project – he also wanted to “protect ‘Steinfeld” because there are a lot of physical things, “he said. “She’s a wonderful actress, a wonderful human, and I can’t wait to see what she can do.”
Hawk Eye is the fifth Marvel TV series to premiere in 2021, after WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and the animated What if?
For fans who can’t get enough of Marvel, The Eternals, realized by Chloe Zhao, hits theaters on November 5, less than a month before Spider-Man returns for his third film, Spider-Man: No Path Home.
