Hailee Steinfeld in Talks for Kate Bishop Role in Hawkeye Disney+ Series

Hailee Steinfeld in Talks for Kate Bishop Role in Hawkeye Disney+ Series
"Bumblebee" and "The Edge of Seventeen" star Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to star in the upcoming Disney+ series "Hawkeye".

The show is set in the Marvel universe and continues the story of the titular MCU superhero aka Clint Barton, played by Jeremy Renner, who will train a new recruit, Kate Bishop (Steinfeld). In the comics, Bishop becomes the new Hawkeye and joins a group called the Young Avengers. "Mad Men" alum Jonathan Igla has been tapped to write and executive-produce the series.

This will be the streaming service's fourth MCU-set series, along with "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" (Fall 2020), "WandaVision" (Spring 2021) starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and the six-episode "Loki" (Spring 2021) starring Tom Hiddleston. A Marvel animated series titled "What If..." is also in the works and will premiere in the summer of 2021. Future shows also include "Ms. Marvel", "Moon Knight" and "She-Hulk".

"Hawkeye" is set to debut in the fall of 2021. All Marvel Disney+ shows are being produced by Kevin Feige's Marvel Studios and will be fully integrated into the MCU. Disney+ will launch on November 12, and the subscription will cost $6.99 a month.

Steinfeld can also be seen later this year in the Apple+ series "Dickinson", in which she stars as 19th century poet Emily Dickinson.
