The post-Avengers: Endgame fate of one original Avenger may be revealed, as Disney+ is planning a Hawkeye solo show starring Jeremy Renner, according to Variety.

The Hollywood trade reports that the show, described as an "adventure series," will focus on Renner's Clint Barton training his successor Kate Bishop to take the mantle of Hawkeye, loosely based on their relationship in comic books.

In comic books, Kate Bishop is a wealthy prodigy who excels at archery, and joins the original line-up of the Young Avengers as Hawkeye during a time when Clint Barton was dead, later gaining Barton's blessing and mentorship in the role. 

No actor was reported to take the role of Bishop. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently hinted at a potential MCU Young Avengers-style team-up between teen heroes, potentially including fellow founding comic book Young Avenger Cassie Lang.

It hasn't been specified when this reported series will take place in the timeline of Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity.

Hawkeye is the latest Disney+ Avengers-based series reportedly in the works, joining Vision & Scarlet Witch, Falcon & Winter Soldier, and Loki as Marvel projects in development for the upcoming streaming service.
