Looks like Disney+’s Hawkeye series is ‘indefinitely postponed’

January 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments

After the news that director Scott Derrickson had stepped down as Doctor Strange And the Multiverse of Madness we figured Marvel/MCU wouldn’t have any more bad news for a while.

Yet, here we are.

Word on the nerd vine is that Disney+’s planned Hawkeye series has now been indefinitely postponed and is no longer on the streaming service’s 2020 production slate.

The series was to star Avengers’ star Jeremy Renner in the title role and  Bumblebee star Hailee Seinfeld allegedly set to play the next Hawkeye, Kate Bishop.

Steinfeld has previously cast doubt on this series happening, so this is not entirely unforeseen.

The series was set to film this July but it seems Disney+ has set Ms Marvel to film in April and have started casting both Moonknight and She-Hulk, so it looks like, if true, this is not a spur-of-the-moment decision.

Personally, I’m a big fan of Steinfeld and was looking forward to seeing her join the MCU, but hopefully this isn’t the end of the story for the Avenging archer(s).

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
