When is Hawkeye on Disney Plus?
The series is currently slated for a late 2021 release date. Of course, we know that the pandemic has delayed productions across the board - so this could get pushed back. We’ll keep an eye out and update this article with more information as we have it.
What is the plot of Hawkeye?
The series will follow Hawkeye training his young apprentice Kate Bishop, known from the comics to eventually take over the mantle of Hawkeye. It’s highly likely that this will also be a setup for the next Avengers film.
Kate Bishop is already trained in martial arts when she meets Hawkeye, and so is a quick learner of archery under Clint’s mentorship. Like Hawkeye, she doesn’t possess any superpowers, and focuses more on street crime rather than massive outer space threats.
Producer Kevin Feige also revealed at the D23 Expo that we’d see more into the life of Ronan - Clint Barton’s darker alter-ego that went on a killing spree after losing his family due to the Thanos snap. We imagine this will take place in the form of flashbacks.

Who are the cast and crew of Hawkeye?
Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role as Hawkeye from the MCU, starring as the main character.
There’s been no confirmation on who will be playing the role of Kate Bishop, but Hailee Steinfield was widely tipped to have been offered the part, but she has since quelled these rumours in an interview with the Radio Times.
Seeing as this will be about Clint Barton's life, we could see appearances from Linda Cardellini and Ava Russo, the actresses who played his wife Laura and daughter Lila respectively.
