Hailee Steinfeld in talks for Kate Bishop role in Hawkeye Disney+ series
Variety is reporting that Disney+ has offered Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Bumblebee, Dickinson) the lead role of Kate Bishop in the upcoming Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner.
The Hawkeye limited series will see Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Clint Barton, with the story also set to introduce his protege Kate Bishop. In the comics, Bishop becomes Hawkeye after Clint Barton and is also a member of the Young Avengers. Disney has not yet confirmed if they have plans to give Bishop her own spinoff show or have her appear in the MCU down the road, but it is certainly a possibility. Hawkeye will premiere in Fall 2021 on Disney+.
Disney is developing multiple limited series featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and WandaVision being two of the shows in development. Mackie, Stan, Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will reprise their roles for their respective series.
Disney‘s upcoming streaming service will become the exclusive home in the U.S. for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live-action and animated series and movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and Fox. Set to launch on November 12, the service will be ad-free, supported solely by subscription fees, and will be available on gaming consoles, smart TV’s, and connected streaming devices.
