Hailee Steinfeld in talks to star in Disney Plus "Hawkeye" series
The 22 year-old Oscar nominated actress has been offered the lead role in Disney Plus’ ‘HAWKEYE’.
Sources say Steinfeld will play none other than Kate Bishop, member of the Young Avengers and masterful archer who eventually assumes the same moniker as her role model Clint Barton. Jeremy Renner is confirmed to reprise his role as Marvel’s titular Avenger.
No plot details have been revealed but Steinfeld’s casting suggests writer and executive producer Jonathan Igla (Mad Men!) will look to the present and the future by introducing an exciting character who could very well factor into Marvel’s Phase IV plans.
With Steinfeld cast, it’s likely additional announcements will follow suit.
