Hailee Steinfeld Being Eyed To Star In HAWKEYE Disney Plus Series

Hailee Steinfeld

Marvel Studios is still amping up its star-studded roster and this latest addition proves that. VARIETY is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is currently in talks to star in the upcoming Disney Plus series, HAWKEYE. 

If this becomes official Steinfeld will join Jeremy Renner who reprises his role as Hawkeye aka Clint Barton, the now and arrow using Avenger and Steinfeld would play the role of Kate Bishop, his daughter. In the comics Kate Bishop eventually takes up the mantle in which her father held and joins the team of the Young Avengers.

Knowing how Disney and Marvel studios like to fully invest in their stars this more than likely would not be a one-off series for Steinfeld. Starring in the series would likely represent a long-term relationship with Marvel studios and it is reasonable to assume that the Bishop character would eventually spin off into either her own standalone series or even appear in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now you can add the master archer to the list of Avengers who will be getting their own series on the upcoming Disney+ streaming platform.

A Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner is now in the works. The series is described as an adventure series in which archery master Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, will pass the torch to Kate Bishop, a member of the group known as the Young Avengers, and first female to take the Hawkeye name after Clint Barton.

Kate is also Barton’s daughter and many believe her to be the young girl we see in the Avengers Endgame trailer practicing with Clint.

Other series that have been announced so far are Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson) as well as Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
