Disney Plus has enjoyed great success so far with its live-action shows such as “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and recently “Loki.” Next up is the beautifully animated series, “What If ” in August. To help close out the year is a series devoted to the purple clad archer himself, “Hawkeye.” Check out a first look image below of star Jeremy Renner with series co-star Hailee Steinfeld.
Steinfeld will be portraying the young hero in training, Kate Bishop, a beloved character from the Marvel comic book series.
Additionally, rounding out the cast of the original Marvel Studios series are Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James, and newcomer Alaqua Cox who will star as Maya Lopez. Hawkeye is helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie and arrives on Disney+ on November 24, 2021.
The series is said to be a passing of the torch between Barton and Bishop.
Florence Pugh is expected to make her return to the MCU in this series as the new Black Widow looking for revenge for the death of her sister, Natasha. Also rumored is Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his role as Kingpin from the Netflix Marvel series, Daredevil.
