The latest casting rumor floating around is that Hailee Steinfeld has signed on to play Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye in Disney+’s Hawkeye. The six episode series will focus on Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton passing the mantle to Bishop.
Steinfeld has been rumored for the role since September. Just 10 days ago it was reported that she was no longer in the running for the role. Was it a misdirect? Time will tell.
Kate Bishop was created by Allan Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung. She made her first appearance in Young Avengers #1 in April 2005.
