Hailee Steinfeld in Talks to Play Kate Bishop in Disney+ ‘Hawkeye’ Series

Marvel and Disney have found their Kate Bishop.

Per a new report from Variety, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star Hailee Steinfeld is in early talks for the role of Kate Bishop in the Marvel/Disney+ series, Hawkeye.

The limited series will see Jeremy Renner reprise the role of the bow-and-arrow wielding hero that he has played through multiple films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most recently in Avengers: Endgame.

Sources say that Marvel Studios has put the offer through for Steinfeld to take on the leading role, and discussions are underway between both parties. It is expected that, if Steinfeld, or really an actor, signs on for the role of Bishop, it will be a long term commitment. Meaning, Kate Bishop might receive her own spin-off series, as well as appear in future MCU movies.

This would mark Steinfeld’s second TV starring role. She is the lead in the upcoming Apple series Dickinson. She has previously starred in major films such as True Grit, The Edge of Seventeen, and Bumblebee.
