From tomorrow on Disney +, Hawkeye, the new original series from Marvel Studios, brings together Jeremy Renner and his new protégé Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). Where does this show fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline?
After WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, it’s now Clint Barton’s turn to be entitled to his own original Hawkeye series on Disney +. The former Avenger, traumatized by the events of Endgame, thinks only of one thing: to take advantage of his family. And the Christmas celebrations that are preparing are a good way to relax with loved ones.
But that was without counting a presence from the past that resurfaces and the appearance in her life of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer who dreams of becoming a superheroine. Together, Clint and Kate will do everything to end a criminal organization.
Created by Jonathan Igla, Hawkeye is obviously counting on the return of Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton and the arrival of Hailee Steinfeld in the costume of Kate Bishop. In the cast, we also find Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton and Alaqua Cox.
A series in real time?
With the MCU timeline getting complex at times, Jeremy Renner told a little more about the series’ place in this timeline to presenter Jimmy Kimmel on his show. Jimmy Kimmel Live! :
“It’s a series that’s happening these days. It’s happening around the same time as its release. [sur Disney+, ndlr]. It’s sort of a Christmas event series. Our story takes place in New York and unfolds more or less in real time. Not totally, actually, but there is a story about a week in New York around Christmas Day. “
If Jeremy Renner remains evasive enough, it is so as not to reveal too much about the series. But there’s no denying that Hawkeye takes place after Avengers: Endgame and the other Marvel Studios series on Disney +. She will also have a connection to the film Black Widow, whose post-credits scene shows Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) ready to avenge the death of her sister Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) of the one she believes responsible for her death, to know Hawkeye. Florence Pugh will therefore make a passage in the series.
A connection to Spider-Man: No Way Home?
Asked about the timeline issue by The Direct, producer Trinh Tran also kicked in and didn’t want to confirm or refute Hawkeye’s place in the MCU timeline compared to Spider-Man: No Way Home, the most anticipated Marvel movie of this ending. year :
“I can safely say that Hawkeye is after Endgame. But I don’t want to spoil where it is compared to another movie. I think you’ll just have to wait and find out soon. It’s not that long, no ? “
We will therefore have to wait with the release of Hawkeye, this Wednesday, November 24 on Disney +, with the first two episodes, and that of Spider-Man: No Way Home to find out if links between the two Marvel entities exist. However, a set photo casts doubt and suggests that the series may take place after Spider-Man: No Way Home: a visual of Hailee Steinfeld standing in front of a “Happy New Year 2025” sign, to be reviewed in this slideshow.
