Los Angeles (PTI) Fans may or may not be proven right about what happens to Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye in the much anticipated “Avengers: Endgame”, but the actor will reprise his role as archer Clint Barton in an eponymous miniseries.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel series will air on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
The project is planned as a graduation point for Barton where he is able to pass on the Hawkeye mantle to his young protege Kate Bishop, who in the comics is a member of the Young Avengers.
Bishop has starred in the ‘Hawkeye’ series from Matt Fraction and Alex Aja. Launched in 2012, the comic book series centered on the student-teacher relationship between Barton and Bishop.
The “Hawkeye” miniseries is the latest to join the list of Disney+ projects starring Marvel Cinematic Universe talent — Tom Hiddleston, Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen, and Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
Disney+ has two unscripted Marvel shows in the works — “616” and “Hero Project” — that were unveiled Wednesday.
Meanwhile, “Endgame” is slated to be released worldwide on April 26.
