While Marvel Studios has been having a tough time resuming productions or even starting it with others, they’ve finally found directors for the upcoming solo Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Troop Zero directors Amber Finlayson and Katie Ellwood along with Comrade Detective‘s Rhys Thomas have been tapped to work on the Disney+ series that will introduce Barton’s protege Kate Bishop, a member of the Young Avengers.
It’s still unknown who will ultimately take the Bishop role after Hailee Steinfeld had been linked previously but had a conflict with her Apple TV+ series Dickinson.
When they’ll begin filming is a little uncertain as they had been planning on a shoot in Atlanta, Georgia and because of the pandemic they’ve had to pause other shows shooting in the area, which could lead to delays for Hawkeye‘s start. Georgia’s governor doesn’t seem to be taking the situation as seriously as he should be and this could lead to the state having trouble resuming it’s film and television sector in 2020.
The hiring of these three directors for Hawkeye would suggest that it will be the next series to filming while She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight have yet to officially land their own directors.
As most suspected, The Falcon & The Winter Soldier won’t begin airing next month due to delays in finishing their production. Although there is word that WandaVision might be delayed until spring 2021 despite chatter of a December release.
