MCU Cosmic Scoop Confirmed! Hawkeye is Coming to Disney Plus!

As MCU Cosmic reported twice last year, a Hawkeye series is coming to Disney+!

Firstly in June the site reported that a solo Hawkeye project was in the works. As that was before Marvel Studios Disney+ series were a thing, it was thought it could be a movie. Then last October I learned that the project had life, was moving forward, that it involved Kate Bishop, and speculated it could be a Disney+ series based on the Matt Fraction run of the comic.

Today Variety confirmed the series is in the works:

“Variety has learned from sources that Disney’s upcoming streaming service is officially developing a limited series based on the archery ace Marvel character with Renner attached to star. The project is said to be an adventure series in which Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, will pass the torch to Kate Bishop. Bishop is a Marvel Comics character who took up the Hawkeye mantle after Barton. She is also a member of the group known as the Young Avengers.”

It feels good to get this confirmed!
