Could she play Kate Bishop?
It seems that Bumblebee star Hailee Steinfeld could soon be joining the MCU, as according to sources, she has been offered a lead role in the Disney+ series, Hawkeye.
The limited series will follow Jeremy Renner’s hero in the role he has played through multiple films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it will also focus on his prodigy, Kate Bishop – the role that Variety is reporting Steinfeld has been offered.
In the comics, Bishop takes up the Hawkeye mantle after Clint Barton, and is also a member of the Young Avengers.
Last week, it was reported that Jonathan Igla (best known for his work on Mad Men) will write and executive produce the series, so perhaps this is a sign that Hawkeye is moving quickly forward. Should Steinfeld accept the role, it would likely mean that Disney and Marvel would have most of the pieces in place to start production on the series sooner rather than later.
Do you think Hailee Steinfeld is a good choice for Kate Bishop? Or is there another actress you’d like to see take on the role? Let us know in the comments!
