Marvel Studios has two Disney+ series currently in production with three or four more projects scheduled for later this year. However, it looks like one major series will not hit production anytime soon.
According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Hawkeye, which was slated to start production this July, has been postponed indefinitely and removed from the studios 2020 production schedule altogether.
Sadly, this news comes as no surprise as reports surfaced that Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) who was mentioned as the favorite to star as Kate Bishop, is currently locked into a non-compete contract with Apple for her role in the series Dickinson. The delay could buy Steinfeld time to negotiate at a later time for the role. There have been some serious allegations regarding current Hawkeye Jeremy Renner, which we won’t report on here as we are a family-friendly site, but as of now, there is no official reason for the series delay.

Mad Men scribe Jonathan Igla will be writing and executive producing the series, which focus on Barton (Renner) training another non-super-powered bow and arrow weirder, Kate Bishop (Steinfeld if she signs), and how to be a superhero with no super-powers.
It’s unknown at this time if any other Avengers will make an appearance on the series, who the villain will be. The series is still expected to drop on Disney+ sometime in the Fall of 2021.
