A rumor did the rounds recently which claimed that a Hawkeye solo project was being discussed at Marvel Studios, & now we have a very interesting update from the same source. Find out more after the jump.
A couple of months back, a rumor did the rounds about a possible standalone Hawkeye project – we’re not sure if it was a movie or something for Disney’s new streaming service – being discussed at Marvel, and now we have an update.
According to MCU Cosmic, the project is now in active development although things are still in the very early stages. Apparently, the story will borrow elements from Matt Fraction and David Aja’s acclaimed comic series, which saw Clint Barton train a new archer to potentially take up the Hawkeye mantle.
On the heels of yesterday’s news that 13 Reasons Why actress Katherine Langford has filmed scenes for Avengers 4, this is bound to fuel speculation that she’ll be playing Kate Bishop – but that’s just one possibility.
So, how much stock should we put in this? Well, the source has had some scoops that panned out in the past (as well as some that didn’t), but you should obviously take the report with the requisite grain of salt until we find out more. In the meantime, be sure to share your thoughts down below.
