Hawkeye fans, rejoice: Marvel Studios is making an all-new series about the superhero archer for Disney's new streaming service, Disney+. Along with new films and TV series starring Doctor Strange, Thor, and others, the new show Hawkeye is a part of the latest phase 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 or where to stream Hawkeye. How can you watch Hawkeye online, whether you're in your living room or on the go? That's what we're here to discuss. And, since the answer is pretty simple, we'll also spend some time talking about what we know about Hawkeye so far, 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 where we usually list all of the different ways to watch whatever network television channel, movie, or TV show it is we're talking about. In the case of the all-new Hawkeye series, though, things are pretty simple! Since Hawkeye will be a Disney+ original series, you're only going to be able to watch it on one streaming service, which will, of course, be…
Watch Hawkeye for free on Disney+
Where can you stream Hawkeye online? On Disney+, of course! The new series is going to be exclusive to Disney's new streaming service. Hawkeye is part of Disney+'s answer to popular original programming on competitors like Netflix and HBO.
Hawkeye is not the extent of Disney+'s Marvel Studios offerings, though. The service has launched with some Marvel movies to stream, and more titles will arrive as old contracts with streaming competitors expire, freeing hit Marvel Studios films to come home to Disney+. Marvel Studios is also plotting lots of new content for Phase 4, and Hawkeye is just one small piece of the puzzle. Disney+ will be getting other Marvel Studios original series, including WandaVision, and will eventually be the streaming home of upcoming Marvel Studios movies after their theatrical runs.
So you're a Hawkeye super fan who is ready to sign up for Disney+. If you do that, though, what devices will you be able to use to stream your favorite super-archer's antics? Let's run through your options for running the new Disney+ app and using it to stream Hawkeye to your heart's content.
Disney+ supports all of the major streaming platforms. You'll be able to download a Disney+ app and stream Hawkeye on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, and Chromecast (via the mobile apps or in-browser app).
Disney+ also supports iOS (iPhones and iPads) and Android mobile devices, as well as (via a web app) PC and Mac computers.
You can even watch Hawkeye online with your video game system: Disney+ is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Right now, we don't know exactly when Hawkeye will be released. But we do have a general idea: Disney has promised that the series will reach Disney+ in fall of 2021.
Yes, that's a pretty long way off, we're afraid. Disney+ subscribers will have a year or two of streaming to enjoy before they can clap eyes on the new Hawkeye series. Happily, there are lots of other things to watch! Disney+ hosts tons of original content and past Disney hits, including lots of great stuff from Marvel Studios. Disney+ will be the “forever home” of Marvel Studios works like Avengers: Endgame, Disney promises, and new content is coming in the form of new movies for Black Widow, Doctor Strange, and Thor, as well as new shows for Scarlet Witch, Falcon, and other fan favorites. It's all part of Marvel Studios' Phase 4 plan.
The Hawkeye series will star Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, of course, but what will our favorite archer be up to? Marvel Studios has shared one key detail about the show's premise: It will star not one but two Hawkeyes. Renner's Clint Barton, the original Hawkeye, will share the screen with the character of Kate Bishop.
In the comics, Kate Bishop is Barton's younger counterpart. The two share the Hawkeye title for a while before Kate, who is also a member of the Young Avengers, takes on the role exclusively following Barton's apparent death. As superheroes tend to do, Barton popped up again after his alleged demise, but he has since grabbed the title of Ronin, so Bishop remains your only current Hawkeye in the Marvel Comics universe. We don't yet know how closely the Disney+ series will mirror the comics canon (Hawkeye became Ronin in Avengers: Endgame, but it's not clear if he'd stick with that title after his redemption arc — plus, we don't yet know for sure that the Hawkeye series will take place after Avengers: Endgame). What we do know is that the series will be about Barton “passing the torch” to his younger foil and sometimes-protege Bishop. Is it too much to hope that we'll see a Pizza Dog episode?
