The MCU On Disney+
While they may be over 20 films in, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. If anything, they're ramping up for an even more aggressive Phase 4, including a number of shows for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. These shows will include WandaVision, Loki, What If, and Hawkeye, among others.
Could Hailee Steinfeld Be Joining The MCU?
The Hawkeye series will focus on Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton as he trains a young woman named Kate Bishop to take up the mantle of Hawkeye. According to Variety, Marvel is keen on actress Hailee Steinfeld taking the role of Kate Bishop.
Steinfeld is a great choice for the role, showing her talent in films like True Grit, which earned her an Oscar nomination at the age of 14, Bumblebee, and The Edge Of Seventeen. She is also starring in the upcoming Emily Dickinson series on Apple TV+.
Who is Kate Bishop?
Kate Bishop was introduced during Matt Fraction's celebrated run of Hawkeye , trained by Clint Barton to take over the role of Hawkeye after he retires. She goes on to join the Young Avengers and has been a popular addition to the Marvel world.
While the MCU version of Hawkeye is rather different than Fraction's, it is still possible for him to usher Bishop into the role of Hawkeye. Truly these are exciting times for comics fans.
