Marvel wrapping up it’s ongoing Disney+ Original now with Loki finishing up next week. The animated What If? is the next in line which will fill the gap for Disney+ outings starting in August. So Black Widow which waited over a year now also filled in that place as the first film to do so. Now the same procedure may follow for future Marvel films. With so many movies on the table for an OTT release as well. We wonder if there is a slot for another Disney+ web series, as in Hawkeye and its release date.
So, answering that here we are gathering all the information that suggests the time our Arrow-shooting superhero will be returning. After all, his presence is always lucky for the Avengers and we need him. But also note that there are nods that suggest he is not the only one returning. So keeping that in mind let’s break down the release date for Hawkeye on Disney+. Along with the story, it could tell for phase 4 of Marvel Cinematic Universe and everyone who will join in to tell that story.
Hawkeye Release Date
At the moment Marvel is looking forward to releasing Hawkeye in late 2021 on Disney+. Somewhere between the releases of Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home in theatres. Until then, big Marvel Cinematic movies such as Black Widow which is already running in theatres. Plus, Shang-Chi: The Legend Of Ten Rings in September with Eternals in November will be making their presence felt. They all might make an appearance on Disney+ and its Premier Access service. Since Marvel is following a good step-by-step chronology for the multiverse, there might be a reason for the late 2021 release which connects these movies as well.
Coming back to Hawkeye and its release date, Eternals star Lauren Ridloff had shared a photo with Hawkeye star Alaqua Cox on Instagram. The caption wrote that they are coming in the fall of 2021. This certainly means Hawkeye may release around Eternals release date which is November 5, 2021. It could be before that or even after that. We have to wait for the official announcement until then.
Hawkeye Plot – What Could Be It About?
The official synopsis from Marvel Studios and Disney+ say Hawkeye will see Jeremy Renner returning as the titular character. The one he is playing since 2011’s Thor. The story will pick up after the events of Avengers: Endgame much like The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. We will be seeing our arrow-striking hero training Kate Bishop who will fill in the shoes of Hawkeye and Barton may finally pass the torch. Meanwhile, our Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton will also be embracing the new persona he acquired during Marvel’s blip in Avengers: Endgame. The one he likes to call Ronin.
For now, we don’t know the main conflict or threats that will be coming towards Barton’s family. We believe there will be an exploration of Clint’s family which was quite a big secret until we met them in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Still, not much was revealed about the arrow guy of the superhero team. Throughout MCU, he kept himself away from the radar and looked forward to retiring in Captain America: Civil War. But one mistake led him to house arrest when he teamed with Captain America against the new rules from the government.
The events in Avengers: Infinity War cost Clint Barton his family. Something he wasn’t responsible for which led him to turn Ronin. Even though everyone is back alive now. There must be enemies that Barton would have made that could come haunting him and may follow Kate on her first steps towards becoming a superhero.
We already have Kazi mentioned in the cast of Hawkeye. This means he could be the villain to feature. Also, the behind-the-scenes photos tease the Tracksuit Mafia being in the main picture as well. Lastly, in case you have watched the latest Black Widow movie, the ending suggests Valentina might have suggested to Yelena that Clint is the one who killed Natasha. Although Florence Pugh isn’t part of the cast. Who knows we might see some hints for Dark Avengers next. Let’s see how it goes for that. There is no official trailer for Hawkeye yet but we are hoping for it to soon arrive so we could have more insight into the movie.
The Cast Of Hawkeye – Everyone Joining The Web series
As mentioned in the plot, Jeremy Renner is already in for Hawkeye. Apart from him, we have Hailee Steinfeld who will be playing the character of Kate Bishop. The new Hawkeye carrying the legacy. So far from the comics, we know the character acquires similar traits as her Barton for being smart, witty, and at the same time highly acrobatic. These two will lead the role in the mentor-student relationship.
In the supporting cast of Hawkeye, we have Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop as in Kate’s mother. She will be against Kate being a hero or not, we might find out soon. Fra Fee also joins in as Kazi and Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne. The latter trained and was a mentor to Barton. Lastly, we have Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez a.k.a Echo, and Brian d’Arcy James in an unspecified role.
