Marvel's 'Hawkeye' Series Finds Its Writer With Jonathan Igla


Outsiders - September 06, 2019
The Marvel series based on the Avengers superhero Hawkeye has tapped AMC's Mad Men writer and executive story editor Jonathan Igla to act as a writer and executive producer.

The series is being developed for the upcoming streaming service Disney+ with Jeremy Renner reprising his titular role as the bow-and-arrow wielding superhero. The story is due to focus on Clint Barton, a non-superpowered hero, trying to teach another hero with an affinity for the bow, Kate Bishop, how to be a hero with no super powers.

Marvel has planned a series of shows to debut on the Disney+ with the Hawkeye series tentatively set for a fall 2021 debut and is part of Marvelís Phase Four round of releases. Phase Four includes the debut of Marvel shows on Disney+, the first one being The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, set for a fall 2020 unveiling. That is to be followed by WandaVision (spring 2021), Loki (also spring 2021), then Hawkeye. At D23, Marvel chief Kevin Feige announced that shows featuring She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight were also in the works.

The key creative team for the Phase four shows include Igla along with Malcolm Spellman penning Winter Soldier, with Kari Scogland directing; WandaVision has Jac Schaeffer as showrunner; and Loki has Michael Waldron writing and executive producing.
