It has been a long time since we got any updates on Disney+'s Hawkeye series. However, it looks like there are now new names attached to the Marvel Cinematic Universe show. Jeremy Renner's upcoming series has just added promising directors to helm the episodes.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Bert and Bertie, as well as Rhys Thomas, will be directing the MCU series. Although it was not revealed how many episodes the directors will work on, it is believed that each would helm "a block of episodes" of the highly anticipated Disney+ show.
Bert and Bertie is actually the nom de plume of co-directors Amber Finlayson (Bert) and Katie Ellwood (Bertie). They have previously worked on the coming-of-age comedy Troop Zero which aired on Amazon Prime. Thomas is best known for his work on Staten Island Summer, Comrade Detective, and John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch.
This is welcome news considering that the only names attached to the Hawkeye series are Renner and Jonathan Igla, who will be writing for the show. For now, there haven't been any casting news on who will play Kate Bishop but there's a good chance this will change before the end of the year.
The Hawkeye series is still in development and there have been no updates yet on when it will begin production. However, the show might start filming later this year or in early 2021 to make sure that it will premiere on Disney+ by Fall 2021.
