‘Hawkeye’: Hailee Steinfeld Finally Confirmed For Kate Bishop Role Thanks To New Set Video

Murphy’s Multiverse first had on set confirmation that Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Bumblebee, Dickinson) has taken the Kate Bishop role in Marvel’s Hawkeye series as they posted first set footage earlier today.

Now, a second video making it’s way on Twitter and Instagram has a much clearer look at Hailee Steinfeld and Jeremy Renner in the subway scene being shot in Brooklyn. Variety was first to report that Hailee was in the mix to play Clint Barton’s protege in the series who is likely to become part of the Young Avengers or a version of that team.

The Oscar nominated actress seemingly teased her involvement with a recent birthday post on Instagram that got rabid attention from fans.

UPDATE: Some high resolution photos are also on Twitter and HQ Celeb Corner as well.

Below you can see what is clearly Steinfeld alongside Renner.

The series is said to be based on the Matt Fraction run alongside villains from that comic and if they’re able to complete filming on schedule could be released before the end of 2021. Filming will return to Atlanta once the NYC shoot is completed.

We’re curious if we’ll end up seeing more cast announcements in the coming weeks as we only know about two cast members at the moment officially, despite the recent rumor of Florence Pugh joining them for an appearance as Yelena Belova.
