To date, four of the six original Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk – have gotten solo movies. Black Widow will soon join them, as her own movie is now in the works. But the one Avenger who hasn’t gotten any kind of solo project is Hawkeye. Well, that may be about to change.
MCU Cosmic heard back in June that Marvel was considering a Hawkeye-centric project, and the site has a new update. Right now, it’s unclear if this will be a movie or a show. Marvel is currently planning multiple shows for Disney Play, such as Loki and Scarlet Witch. Either way, Hawkeye is said to be in some stage of internal development, and not just an idea being considered. (For what it’s worth, Hawkeye topped our wishlist of Disney Play shows last month.)
As for plot details, it sounds like the project will see Clint Barton training a new, younger archer. While unconfirmed, this is most likely Kate Bishop, who was the third Hawkeye in the comics. She and Clint co-starred in Jeff Lemire’s Hawkeye run, which is a recent but widely praised series.
Right now, it’s unclear when (or even if) this project will happen. But based on this rumor, it appears that it’s an idea Marvel is actually developing on some level. We’ll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
