New Hawkeye Set Photos Tease Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop in Action
New behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the New York City set of Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series Hawkeye have surfaced online, providing us a preview of one of the series’ many action scenes. Featuring Hailee Steinfeld as she does some of her Kate Bishop stunts along with her stunt body double, you can check out the set photos and fan-taken videos below along with our first-look at Vera Farmiga and Tony Dalton’s characters in the recently released set photos (via Just Jared)!
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, who is officially being portrayed by Hailee Steinfeld. Joining them are recently confirmed Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee (Animals), and newcomer Alaqua Cox. It will also reportedly feature Black Widow‘s Florence Pugh, Tony Dalton (Better Call Saul), and Zahn McClarnon (Doctor Sleep).
It will be directed by Amber Finlayson and Katie Ellwood, aka Bert and Bertie, who are best known for their work on Troop Zero, and Rhys Thomas (Staten Island Summer). Hawkeye is expected to debut in Fall 2021 on Disney+.
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.
The project’s working title “Anchor Point” is actually serving as a homage to the first volume of Kelly Thompson’s fan-favorite comic book series that was published in 2017. Titled as Vol.1: Anchor Points, it was Kate Bishop’s first solo comic series after appearing in the Young Avengers issues. However, it’s still unknown if the said comics’ storyline would connect to the series’ plot or not.
Hawkeye is expected to make its debut late next year.
