Who has probably been least served out of all the Avengers? Who’s gotten the least amount of screentime and a complete lack of attention? That would be Clint Barton, AKA Hawkeye, the neglected child in Marvel’s super-family of Earth’s greatest heroes.
Clint survived the Snap last summer but he’s still the Avenger people care least about. Maybe they just need to get to know him. Hawkeye is getting his own series, Marvel announced today, and it’s destined for the new Disney+ streaming service they’re launching soon.
The show (which has no revealed title but we’re guessing “Hawkeye”) will take place after the events of Avengers Endgame. From the trailers we know Clint deals with his grief by abandoning his former getup to become a more angsty superhero called Ronin. Depending on how Endgame goes, this could still be the case after the credits roll…so would Hawkeye not technically be in “Hawkeye”?
Actually, sharp-eyed viewers have spotted a shot in the trailers of Clint helping a young girl aim a bow. Fans believe this to be Kate Bishop, the one from the comics who takes over the Hawkeye mantle after Clint abandons it. Bishop has now been confirmed to be a part of this series, which likely means that WAS her and she will appear first in Endgame. It’s expected that this series is about Clint passing the torch to Kate.
The Hawkeye series joins a handful of other direct Marvel Cinematic Universe shows planned for Disney+ including Loki, Vision and the Scarlet Witch, and a rumored series based around Winter Soldier and Falcon.
