Disney+ has reportedly offered Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit,” “Bumblebee”) the lead role of Kate Bishop in the new “Hawkeye” TV series starring Jeremy Renner.
The limited series will see Renner reprising his role as Clint Barton along with introducing his protege Kate Bishop who, in the comics, becomes Hawkeye. The series is expected to see the mantle passed.
Disney has not yet confirmed if they plan to include the Bishop character in future MCU films though it’s a good possibility. The “Hawkeye” series will premiere in Fall 2021 on Disney+.
