The series follows Clint Barton and Kate, as the original Hawkeye begins passing the torch to a new generation of archer. It takes inspiration from Matt Fraction and David Aja’s beloved Hawkeye comics run, which ran from 2012-2015. The series will also feature Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, as Black Widow fans already know.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Renner offered some details about his personal relationship with Steinfeld and their characters’ relationship on the show.
“[Kate] has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her, because she’s such a Hawkeye fangirl,” said Renner. Kate is 22 in the series.
In Entertainment Weekly’s first look, we see Bishop in a purple sweatsuit, but earlier set photos showed off her classic costume (also purple).
Barton and Bishop have an almost familial relationship in the comics, jumping between acting like brother and sister, father and daughter, or best friends depending on the moment.
Hawkeye will air on Wednesdays this fall, exclusively on Disney Plus.
