Marvel took to the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019 with a ton of news. Not only did the panel feature a surprise announcement of every film in the upcoming Phase 4 slate, but it also covered the new TV series coming to Disney+ in 2020 and 2021. Some of those series we already knew about, but Marvel confirmed them: WandaVision, Loki, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier. And Marvel confirmed a heavily rumored series: Hawkeye.
What Is It About?

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explained that Hawkeye will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The series’ logo looks heavily inspired by Matt Fraction and David Aja’s popular Hawkeye comic series.
Who’s in It?
Jeremy Renner will reprise his role as Clint Barton. But that isn’t all. The new series will also feature Kate Bishop, a member of the Young Avengers who appears in the comics and takes up the Hawkeye name. Who will play her and what kind of role will she play in the series? Rumors have pointed to Hailee Steinfeld, but Marvel hasn’t offically announced anyone. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
In the meantime, we’re really hoping the new series includes Pizza Dog. Lucky the Pizza Dog, formerly known as Arrow, lived with Clint and then later with Kate. He came into Clint’s life when he saved Hawkeye from a bad guy. He appeared pretty regularly in Fraction and Aja’s comic. If that doesn’t make him worthy of including in the TV series, we don’t know what does.
Current Release Date
The COVID-19 pandemic pushed many entertainment schedules, including Marvel’s. The latest we know is that Disney+’s Hawkeye will hit the streaming service in fall 2021.
