Hawkeye fans, rejoice: Marvel Studios is making an all-new series about the superhero archer for Disney’s streaming service, Disney Plus. Along with new films and TV series featuring Doctor Strange, Thor, and others, “Hawkeye” is part of the latest stage of Marvel Studios’ plan for world domination — sorry, we mean for movies and TV shows — Phase 4.
But, Marvel super-fans, this begs the question of where to stream “Hawkeye.” How can you watch “Hawkeye” online, whether you’re in your living room or on the go? The answer is pretty simple, so we’ll also discuss what we know about “Hawkeye,” when the “Hawkeye” series is coming out, and where it fits in alongside Marvel Studios’ other projects.
Here is our favorite way to stream Hawkeye:
This is the part of our “How to Watch” articles where we usually list all the ways to watch whatever network television channel, movie, or TV show we’re talking about. In the case of the all-new “Hawkeye” series, though, things are pretty simple. Since “Hawkeye” will be a Disney Plus original series, you’ll only be able to watch it on one streaming service, which is, drumroll, please:
Watch Hawkeye for free on Disney+
To watch “Hawkeye” online (or at all, for that matter), you’ll need to subscribe to Disney’s streaming service, Disney Plus.
“Hawkeye” is not the extent of Disney Plus’ Marvel offerings though. It has more Marvel titles than the Hulk has anger issues. The service launched with some Marvel movies to stream, and more titles arrived in 2020 as old contracts with streaming competitors expired, freeing hit Marvel Studios films to come home to Disney Plus.
Marvel Studios is also plotting lots of new content for Phase 4, and “Hawkeye” is just one small piece of the puzzle. This year began with the launch of “WandaVision,” which was even better than fans expected. Spring brought “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “Loki” launches this summer, which is good news for Marvel fans and great news for my mom, who finds Tom Hiddleston especially attractive when he’s playing the god of mischief. In 2022, Disney Plus is slated to launch a series about She-Hulk that will star Tatiana Maslany of “Orphan Black” fame. That sounds like a recipe for an angsty drama, but it’s actually going to be a legal comedy of sorts.
Disney Plus will also eventually be the streaming home of upcoming Marvel Studios movies after their theatrical runs.
This is going to be a small chart, because a streaming service as big as Disney Plus works with all the major platforms and devices. See below to find out how you can watch “Hawkeye” with Disney Plus.
We wish we had a firm date, but all Disney Plus will say right now is the show is coming in “late 2021.” That may seem like a long way off, but the show only started filming in December 2020. Filming wrapped in spring 2021, so Disney Plus needs time to do all the post-production work and promote the show (although we’re guessing that won’t be hard). The “Hawkeye” trailer should rack up millions of views in the first few hours after release. We don’t know when the trailer will debut either, but our best guess is sometime in summer 2021.
We’ve known for a while that the show stars Jeremy Renner as the titular Hawkeye, but other details have trickled out slowly. Marvel and Disney are famously protective of their shows, so we’re pretty sure every cast member has signed an NDA that takes longer to read than the “Avengers: Endgame” script.
Here’s what else we know: The show co-stars Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop. Steinfeld is an accomplished actress who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in “True Grit.” In the comic books, Bishop inherits the title of Hawkeye from Clint Barton, which is the real name of the archer who goes by Hawkeye. Marvel is known for playing fast and loose with timelines, so we’re not sure when this series takes place in relation to events like The Snap.
We can get a few clues from the actors filling out the rest of the cast. Florence Pugh has a significant role in “Black Widow,” which is finally coming out in summer 2021, and she appears to be reprising that role in “Hawkeye.” Vera Farmiga will play Kate Bishop’s mom, Eleanor. And we’re intrigued by the casting of newbie Alaqua Cox as deaf Native American superhero Echo, because Echo already has her own spin-off in development at Disney Plus. That’s pretty good, considering “Hawkeye” hasn’t even debuted yet!
