EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios ‘HAWKEYE’ Takes Aim at a New Start Date

In early January, I broke the news that start of production on the Marvel Studios Disney Plus streaming series Hawkeye had been delayed indefinitely from it’s original July start. You can read the original, unaltered report in the link above, but I’ve cut and pasted the relevant parts below:

Production on Marvel Studios planned Disney Plus series, Hawkeye, has been postponed indefinitely. Originally scheduled to begin production this July, the series has now been removed from the studio’s 2020 production schedule.

While the news is sure to disappoint fans, the signs have been pointing towards a possible delay over the past several weeks. The studio has moved Ms. Marvel into an April start of production and is already casting for Moon Knight and She-Hulk, both of which will film ahead of Hawkeye, meaning that while we might not see the Avenging Archer when we thought we would, the big production wheel keeps on turning.

We’ve seen plenty of evidence to suggest that the still young Disney Plus service is a little more fluid in it’s scheduling than we first thought. We’ve seen WandaVision moved into a 2020 release window, Ms. Marvel production shifted to August, a lot of back and forth on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series and now, the reintegration of production on Hawkeye into 2020. I have learned that Marvel Studios hopes to begin production on Hawkeye in September of 2020, after production begins on Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight. Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Hawkeye are all expected to film primarily in Atlanta

I will caution that, at this time, there is no specific date in September on which production is slated to begin and that the studio is open to sliding Hawkeye even a bit further down to road, but still hoping to begin production before the end of this calendar year. The studio has not yet agreed to terms with an actress for the role of Kate Bishop, though they are still hopeful they can find a way to work it out with Hailee Steinfeld.

In this case, I want to make it very clear that the evidence for everything production related is something that is 100% verifiable by other sources and I expect that to happen very, very soon.

So, there it is…Hawkeye’s indefinite delay looks to have become a little more definite and it has been pushed down the list a bit in terms of when it starts production. I’d also like to point out that a September start of production, if they do in fact make that timeline, could allow Hawkeye to air in the Fall of 2021, as first revealed at SDCC and that at no point did the original article about the indefinite delay on start of production make any claims about an altered release date.

Stay tuned to Murphy’s Multiverse for the most accurate and up to date information on this situation.
