Hawkeye garnered huge praise from both cinematic and serial enthusiasts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The television miniseries, created by Jonathan Igla, introduced Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld as the new Hawkeye, leaving fans curious about her future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The series serves as a symbolic passing of the mantle from Clint Barton (played by Jeremy Renner) to Kate Bishop, as expected by Igla, known for his work on Mad Men and Bridgerton. 

Together, the two characters embark on an unexpected adventure, confronting the formidable Wilson Fisk, also known as Kingpin (excellently portrayed by Vincent D’Onofrio). This miniseries presents an ideal platform to introduce Bishop, potentially setting her up as the future lead in a Young Avengers film.

Hawkeye debuted on Disney+ on November 24, 2021, captivating audiences with its first two episodes. However, since the end of the series, there has been a noticeable absence of news regarding its continuation.
