Last week, we learned that the upcoming Disney+ Hawkeye series will have multiple directors. Today comes more Hawkeye news, with multiple reports stating that Hailee Steinfeld has signed up to play Kate Bishop in the series.
The original report comes from The Illuminerdi, who revealed that Hailee Steinfeld will join the cast to co-star alongside Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye. Shortly after, Jeremy Conrad revealed on MCU Cosmic that “it’s not 100% official. It’s more like 99%. No contract has been signed, but it’s looking like it’ll happen.” The story was updated shortly after to state that the contract has been signed and is now 100% official.
Rumours that Marvel Studios have been lining up Hailee Steinfeld for the Kate Bishop role have been circulating for some time. It now seems that an agreement has reached just in time for production to begin in a few months time.
