It seems as if Marvel Studios is going all-in on Disney’s new streaming service. During their Phase Four announcements, Marvel Studios not one but five new series coming to Disney+ in the next two years. Luckily, one of those series will be Hawkeye.

Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role as Clint Barton in the new series. In addition, we’re going to be seeing the MCU debut of Hawkeye’s protege, Kate Bishop, too.

Since the series won’t premiere until 2021, Kate Bishop has not been cast yet. In fact, we don’t even know what the series is really about. As you can tell from the series’ logo, the show might take a lot of influence from Matt Fraction and David Aja’s series.

Kate Bishop made her comics debut in Matt Fraction’s “Hawkeye” series. In the comics, Kate Bishop gets recruited by Clint Barton to be his partner on his street-level crime-fighting missions. As you can tell from the series’ logo, the show will seemingly take a lot of influence from Matt Fraction’s series. The difference, however, lies with the fact that Clint has a family in the MCU and the comics version he’s a down on his luck street-level superhero.

At what point in his life will we see Kate Bishop come into his life. Will it be pre or post-snap? In addition, Feige did say that we’ll be seeing more Ronin on show.

What do you think of Kate Bishop in the MCU?
