Hawkeye Spin-Off Series to Debut on Disney+
With all the talk of storylines and characters coming to an
end in Avengers: Endgame, it looks like Marvel Studios intends to keep some
characters alive and continue their stories elsewhere. Disney plans to have its
streaming platform up and running by the end of this year, featuring material
from Disney, Marvel, ABC, and now FOX and all its subsidiaries. Disney+ will
stream several shows and movies that have appeared elsewhere, but the biggest

This spin-off series for Disney+ is the latest to be added to the growing roster of shows which feature Marvel characters, including Loki, Scarlet Witch, and Falcon and Winter Soldier. No release dates have been announced yet for any of these Marvel series.
meantime, to see the next chapter in Hawkeye’s story, check out a little film
called Avengers: Endgame, which comes out on April 26, 2019.
