A new mini-series featuring Hawkeye, the ‘Avenger’ that shares the phizog of Jeremy Renner, is headed to Disney’s streaming service.

While Renner’s Clint Barton will appear in the series, seems it’ll only be long enough for him to pass the torch to a protege.

Says The Hollywood Reporter, “The miniseries is planned as a jumping-off point for Barton to be able to pass on the Hawkeye mantle to his young protege Kate Bishop, who in the comics is a member of the Young Avengers and has starred in the Hawkeye series from Matt Fraction and Alex Aja. That comic book series, which launched in 2012, earned an Eisner nomination and centered on the student-teacher relationship between Barton and Bishop.”

Renner has played Hawkeye since 2011’s “Thor” and will next be seen wielding the bow in this month’s “Avengers : Endgame”.

The “Hawkeye” series joins a number of other Disney+ series based on Marvel properties, including a ‘Loki’ series, a Vision and Scarlet Witch series, and a Falcon/Winter Soldier series.

Hulu has released an official, full-length trailer for the fourth season of “Veronica Mars”, premiering July 26 on the streamer.
Kristen Bell returns as star and executive producer, alongside many faces from the original run, and creator Rob Thomas.
Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.

The first three seasons of the hit drama will be available on Hulu before the Season 4 premiere.
