A Hawkeye Series Joins the Exciting List of Marvel Shows on Disney's New Streaming Site
If you thought the adventures of our favourite Avengers could be contained to the big screen, you thought wrong, buddy! Back in 2018, Disney announced its plans to launch a brand-new streaming service called Disney+, and since then it's been steadily adding a number of limited series centreed on popular characters from the MCU. Not only will the service have original Marvel shows, but it'll also exclusively house Marvel films instead of Netflix, starting with Captain Marvel, which premiered on March 8.
Subscribers to the service will get the classic blockbuster MCU films along with their TV counterparts, which Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Screen Rant will be directly intertwined with the events from the movie side of the franchise. It's a different approach from other Marvel TV shows that have so far functioned as more of side stories to the MCU thus far. Freeform's Cloak & Dagger, ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Netflix's now-defunct Defender series are rarely acknowledged by their movie counterparts, and thus, are limited to their own worlds. These Disney+ show will directly tie in with the films and be integrated in MCU's story-building.
Out of the few rumoured series, only one show has been officially announced with the featured actor acknowledging the upcoming project. Nonetheless, we're super excited for all these series and what they could add to the MCU lore. Check them out ahead!
