According to the article, the series will be an adventure series as Clint Barton passes the superhero torch to Kate Bishop. Bishop takes over the Hawkeye mantle in the Marvel Comics and eventually becomes a member of the Young Avengers.
Renner has been playing Barton for eight years, first appearing in 2011’s Thor, in an uncredited cameo. He has appeared in three of the previous MCU films, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War. Renner’s next appearance as Barton will be in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame at the end of this month.
