Jonathan Igla To Write Hawkeye Disney+ Series

by Erik Amaya

Elements of Hawkeye‘s creative team are starting to slot into place.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mad Man vet Jonathan Igla will write and executive produce the upcoming Disney+ series based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name. Actor Jeremy Renner, who has played Hawkeye Clint Barton in the Avengers films, will reprise his role. But in a twist, the program will see him training a new Hawkeye — fan favorite Kate Bishop. Of course, it is always possible Kate will teach Clint a thing or two.

The series will be an official part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 and, presumably, see Kate eventually join film side of things at some point. That said, Hawkeye — both of them — were always better suited to a television format, anyway. The other Phase 4 Disney+ series include The Falcon and the Winter Solider, WandaVision, and Loki. Three more Marvel Studios series are also in development for the streaming platform: Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk.

Hawkeye, meanwhile, is set to debut sometime in the Fall of 2021.
