Kate Bishop is a queen for many Marvel Comics fans, but the heroine has been persistently absent from the MCU. As the universe is now over a decade old, fans were starting to wonder if the archer would ever make her way to the screen, and it seems the answer is yes.
As it turns out, Marvel Entertainment is helping Disney+ launch its own TV series about Hawkeye, and it will feature the fan-favorite heroine. And, as you might have guessed, fans are real excited.
For those out of the loop, reports went live today which revealed the Hawkeye series order. Variety let fans know Disney+ has begun developing a TV show focus on Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye. However, he will not be alone. Hawkeye will be joined by Kate Bishop, and fans are losing their minds.
As you can see below, Kate Bishop is drawing lots of reactions online. The girl has been trending on social media since the report went live, and fans admit they are curious to see this take. According to reports, this Hawkeye series is said to lean more so into the comic run Matt Fraction drafted years ago. This now-famous series sees Clint Barton living down and out in an apartment building he bought. He teams up with Kate to pass on the mantle of Hawkeye, but everything from tracksuit gangsters to neighbors get in his way.
Clearly, this depiction of Hawkeye differs from the one the MCU has crafted. Fans are curious to see how Renner’s character will turn into the bedraggled Hawkeye whom Kate forms a touching mentorship with. So, for now, we’ll have to wait and see how Disney+ will navigate this exciting Marvel venture. Fans will be able to check in on Hawkeye before long though; With Avengers: Endgame on the horizon, Renner is set to bring the hero back to the big screen, so audiences can enjoy seeing Clint suit up following his absence in Avengers: Infinity War.
