In the past few weeks, Downtown Canton, Ga. has had the privilege of welcoming the crew of Hawkeye, a new Marvel Disney + series coming in late 2021. Hawkeye (Clint Barton), an expert marksman, joined the Avengers in Marvel’s Avengers (2012) fight against Loki and his allies, and Hawkeye has been in the cinematic movies ever since. Jeremy Renner is casted as Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfield is casted as Kate Bishop- the original comic book Hawkeye. The two will team up together in the series, and Kevin Fiege, Jonathan Igla, Trinh Tran, and Rhys Thomas will produce the show. The series’ filming began in Brooklyn on December 2, 2020.
The Jones Building in Downtown Canton, Ga. is set for one of the filming locations of the Disney + series. The crew has been occupying the building for more than a month now, and it has attracted attention to the marketplace.
But not all the attention the set is getting is positive. Residents that live near the set hear loud noises from their houses late at night, and some express that they are not able to sleep well because of it.
Lorri Brogdon is a resource teacher at Cherokee High School. She lives near the area where Hawkeye is being filmed.

The crew reportedly is planning to leave Canton early March, so swing by the Jones Building to check out the awesome set for yourself before it’s gone!
