One of the biggest shows coming to the new Disney+ streaming service in Hawkeye, a mini-series that sees Jeremy Renner’s titular superhero training a young Kate Bishop to take up his mantle once he retires. Now, we may have confirmation on who will be playing Bishop.
Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, rumors have circulated online that Kate Bishop’s inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would serve as a launching point for the Young Avengers, which is a team of teenage superheroes that includes Kate Bishop.

Warning: Spoilers of Avengers: Endgame
Many MCU fans assumed Kate Bishop would appear in Avengers: Endgame when footage of Hawkeye teaching a young girl archery showed up in the trailer, as well as the news that 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford was cast in the film in an unconfirmed role. It was later clarified that Langford played a teenage version of Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan (played by Alexandra Rabe) but the scenes she shot were cut.
This weekend, Avengers: Endgame finally hits theaters. After ten years and twenty-one films, the most epic chapter in the MCU’s history will finally be released. If there was any worry about whether or not the film is any good, these early Twitter reactions should be a clear indication.
On Monday night, Endgame had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A handful of journalists and reviewers were able to see it. Though a review embargo is still in place, many of them posted their reactions online:
#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0
Wow. #AvengersEndgame is staggering. It’s surprising in ways I never saw coming and satisfying in ways I didn’t realize I needed. It’s kind of the ultimate gift to fans of the MCU. It’s very long and has a few hiccups, but is everything you’re hoping for and more. pic.twitter.com/RO97kw9fs5
Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It’s the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.
Man #AvengersEndgame kicked my ass. It was an epic conclusion to 11 years of films. It had laughs, incredible action and absolute emotional rollercoaster. It was the series finale for these cast of characters that I had been hoping for. Congrats to all for pulling off the feat.
This can’t be understated: #AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned. pic.twitter.com/5LvFw9UEBQ
Don’t know how any @MarvelStudios fan walks out of #AvengersEndgame disappointed. Movie is loaded with incredible set pieces and tons of small character moments that leave you wanting more. An epic conclusion to 10 years of Marvel movies. Thank you to everyone that worked on MCU. pic.twitter.com/HbXkwuYL5y
Just watched Avengers: Endgame. I don’t believe hyperbole is possible for this movie. It is the ultimate Marvel movie in every way possible and words cannot describe how epic it is. And yes, Hawkeye is a rockstar.
The general consensus seems to be that Avengers: Endgame is an epic film that balances humor and sadness well and not only serves as a proper sequel to Infinity War but also a tribute to the last eleven years of MCU history.
Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, is shaping up to have a pretty substantial catalogue of new Marvel content. Loki and Scarlet Witch are getting their own shows, and it looks like another Avenger is getting one as well.
Varietyreported that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye will be the star of his own miniseries on the new service. The new adventure series will see Clint Barton pass on the Hawkeye torch to Kate Bishop, a protege of his who takes up the Hawkeye mantle.
For those that don’t know, Kate Bishop is a member of the Young Avengers, a superhero team that consists of adolescents with connections to other famous superheroes in the Marvel Universe. Bishop inherits the role of Hawkeye, becoming the third iteration of the character and first female iteration overall.
With this new series, do you think that Young Avengers will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Are you excited about Disney+ and this new series?
Hot off the heels of Captain Marvel‘smassive opening weekend, Marvel Studios has released another trailer for Avengers: Endgame.
Warning: Do not continue reading if you haven’t watched the trailer!
The trailer cuts together footage of the previous Avengers film, Infinity War, along with new footage from the sequel. There are also some callbacks to the original Iron Man and Captain America films.
The most notable aspects of the trailer are the introduction of Avengers previously unseen in Infinity War. Hawkeye returns to the team after being absent from Infinity War. Ant-Man joins the team, though it’s not explained how he escaped the quantum realm after the events of Ant-Man and The Wasp. And as to be expected, Captain Marvel makes an appearance. Surprisingly, Thanos is nowhere to be found.
Marvel Studios also released a new poster. Only those who survived the snap are shown.
The film drops on April 26th. No word yet on when tickets go on sale.
