It’s been quite a year for Marvel on Disney+. They kicked off the year with WandaVision, followed by The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki being the most recent one. Capping off this sensational year of superhero shows will be Hawkeye, starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop.
An exclusive article from Entertainment Weekly revealed a first look of Clint coming face-to-face with Kate (pictured) and the premiere date for Hawkeye. It’s set to debut on Disney+ on November 24, 2021, with new episodes releasing on Wednesdays.
Hawkeye will be first time viewers have seen Kate Bishop in any form of the MCU. In the Young Avengers comics (Bishop’s comic debut), Bishop idolized Hawkeye. So much so, when Barton died, she took of the mantle of Hawkeye in his honor. Later, in the Hawkeye solo comic Barton and Bishop partnered up to take on crime and learn from one and other. It appears as if the series will somewhat head in that direction, over the Young Avengers comics. That said, we may be headed toward that trajectory anyway if Black Widow was any indication.
“[Kate is] a 22-year-old kid and she’s a big Hawkeye fan,” Renner told EW. “She has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her, because she’s such a fangirl of Hawkeye. The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems that she brings into his life.”
