Hawkeye mini-series of Marvel Studios for Disney+ may have been postponed indefinitely. Disney officially launched its streaming service at the end of last year, but Marvel officially confirmed only some months earlier what material they would create for it. They announced eight new shows exclusively for Disney+ through San Diego Comic-Con and D23. A Hawkeye series featuring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton, along with shows like WandaVision and Loki, was part of the initial wave.
The news of Hawkeye getting a solo project has been waiting for years from the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Clint is not the only one in the show, though, as Kate Bishop is going to be a co-star and the Hawkeye of the future. In the month following the announcement, Hawkeye found a showroom player in Jonathan Igla of Mad Men and began to search for a Bishop actress. With the original release planned in the fall of 2021, Hawkeye was expected to start development in the middle of this summer-but this may no longer happen.
Rumor About Hawkeye’s Delay
According to a recent rumor, Marvel Studios has postponed Hawkeye indefinitely. Charles Murphy and Murphy’s new website, Murphy’s Multiverse, say the show is deleted from the production schedule of Marvel 2020. The speculation points to more significant changes in the MCU’s future, and not because of Renner’s recent allegations. Nevertheless, Hawkeye must be taken with a grain of salt at this stage until a more reliable source supports the argument.
Is The Rumor True?
According to the Hawkeye delay findings, the Disney sources find the news “absolutely false.”
If this report is accurate, then Hawkeye must wait longer than expected. They are not published with Loki, and What If in 2021? To watch the series, fans might have to wait until 2022 or later. There is a possible piece of good news, though, that Hawkeye could be delayed. Hailee Steinfeld was previously offered to play Kate Bishop. Since then, she has played down the possibility of this contract, and her work on Apple’s Dickinson was assumed to be in the way. Though, if Hawkeye doesn’t start filming until next year, then Steinfeld is probably free.
The threat of Hawkeye being postponed is the new shake-up, which has recently hit Phase 4. Marvel announced that WandaVision was pushed to release in 2020 rather than early 2021 at the beginning of the year. The move, and the potential delay in Hawkeye, leaves Disney+ with only two MCU shows confirmed, although the rapid development of Marvel could see this extended to 2021. Of course, Doctor Strange had also been revealed to have lost his director in the Multiverse of Madness too. All of this can be related to phase 4 and beyond adaptation by Marvel Studios, and Hawkeye could be the newest project to alter.
There seem to be no official plans to postpone Hawkeye for now, and this will continue until a statement from Marvel Studios or Disney is released. Until now, no casting announcements were made official for Hawkeye, except for Clint Barton of Jeremy Renner. Kate Bishop is said to belong to the series, and Hailee Steinfeld has been rumored to tackle this role, but the Oscar-nominated actress has been warning fans to raise their hopes while she still has a deal.
