Disney+'s Hawkeye series was originally planned as a feature film, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in a new interview with Bloomberg.

Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner was originally signed on to appear in a titular feature film, but Feige pitched the idea of a TV show to Disney chairman Bob Iger, who agreed to tell the story on Disney+.

As for Renner himself, "He totally got it," said Feige.

Hawkeye is scheduled for a fall 2021 premiere on Disney+.
