Streaming exclusively on Disney+, Fall 2021. It will tell the story of two generations of Hawkeye: Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner, reprising his role from the feature films) and Kate Bishop (casting not yet announced). It is apparently set between Infinity War and Endgame, during the Blip, while Barton was globetrotting around the world dispensing lethal justice.

The Matt Fraction logo has me hyped. I hope we get to see my two favourite moments from the comics: Christmas lights and Pizza Dog!

I know Scarlett Witch has her own show, but the hiring of Igla makes me wonder if we might see her pop up in this show too, albeit briefly. He has obviously worked well with Elizabeth Olsen, who is the star of Sorry For Your Loss.

Also, Variety says Hailee Steinfeld has been offered the role of Kate Bishop. I think this is a great idea because Steinfeld is a fantastic actress, and Bumblebee, which I very much enjoyed last year, proved that she is comfortable working in a big action spectacle environment and can do terrific, natural work there. I wasn't expecting to care about the central human character in a Transformers movie as much as I did about her in Bumblebee, and that's a credit to her abilities to be grounded and emotional even when surrounded by big set pieces. I really hope she takes this.

From what I understand, Apple is refusing to clear her to participate. She's under contract with them for "Dickinson".

That would be unfortunate, but it would also make sense. Because Disney+ is a rival streaming service, Apple would be invested in keeping her exclusively on their platform and not elsewhere.

Haven't we been through that casting with her before? Obviously I'd love for her to do it, but I won't believe it until Marvel and/or the trades report it.

They’re claiming this is confirmation of the earlier rumors.
