While plot specifics haven't been announced just yet, the series will also introduce Kate Bishop, the character who takes over the mantle of Hawkeye from Clint Barton in the comics.
A major heroine from the team is Kate Bishop's Hawkeye, who we know will be in the Hawkeye series on Disney+. As veterans like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans exit the MCU, the studio is going to be looking to fill it with fresh talent, and Steinfeld is a wonderful choice to take on this fan-favorite role.
There've been reports about a Hawkeye series happening for a while now, but it wasn't made official until San Diego Comic-Con. It was reported last week that Jonathan Igla is attached to write and executive produce the series. Disney has not yet confirmed if they have plans to give Bishop her own spinoff show or have her appear in the MCU down the road, but it is certainly a possibility. Now Variety is reporting that Steinfeld may have the role. She is also starring in the upcoming Emily Dickinson series on Apple TV+.
Steinfeld's impressive filmography includes True Grit, Edge of Seventeen, and Bumblebee.
The 22-year-old actress is no stranger to blockbusters having starred in "Bumblebee" and voice Spider-Gwen in the award-winning "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse". Steinfeld is primarily known for her film roles. Steinfeld has also enjoyed a successful music career, including her platinum-certified debut single "Love Myself", double-platinum-selling "Starving" with Grey featuring Zedd, platinum-selling anthem "Most Girls", and "Let Me Go" featuring Florida Georgia Line.
