Hailee Steinfeld Expects to Play as Kate Bishop in ‘Hawkeye’ Series
Hailee Steinfeld could soon be part of the Marvel Studios. According to Variety, the multi-talented artist is in early talks to star in the Disney+ as a lead role Kate Bishop in the upcoming “Hawkeye” series.
Bishop is a Marvel Comics fictional character who took up the Hawkeye mantle after Clint Barton. She is also an amateur athlete who later joined the Young Avengers, a group of teen heroes inspired by the Avengers.
Last week, Jonathan Igla was attached to write and executive produce the series.
The limited series will see Jeremy Renner reprise the role of the titular bow-wielding hero that he has played through multiple films in the MCU, most recently in “Avengers: Endgame.”
Hawkeye, which is expected to release in fall 2021, is one of multiple Disney+ series in the works at Marvel Studios starring its big-screen talent, including Falcon & The Winter Soldier, Wanda Vision, and Loki. Marvel is also going to introduce new heroes in live-action with She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms Marvel all in the works.
