First look at Hawkeye series as we get a release date

July 31st, 2021 by Marc Comments

It looks like, with the animated What If…? set to kick off in a couple of weeks, we know what’s next for the MCU on the small screen.

Hawkeye, starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, will kick off on November 24th and will tell the story of Bishop, a fan of Barton’s who will step up to become the new Hawkeye.

We also know that Black Widow star Florence Pugh will appear as Yelena Belova, who believes Barton killed her sister, Natasha Romanov.

The show will also star Vera Farmiga as Kate’s mother, Eleanor, Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, Tony Dalton as Jack Duquesne, Fra Fee as Kazi and Brian D’Arcy James in a mystery role.

And, if these rumours are to be believed, we will be seeing Vincent D’Onofrio return as Kingpin – which is very exciting, so hopefully it turns out to be true.

On top of all this, we have our first official look at the show (below).

See you all on Disney+ in November, gang.

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….
