The upcoming ‘Hawkeye’ miniseries now has Hailee Steinfeld in early talks to play Kate Bishop. She is a young hero, and future Young Avenger, who learns to fights crime with a bow and arrow.

Last year, Steinfeld was in Sony Animation’s ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ and Paramount’s ‘Bumblebee.’ She also received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in Ethan & Joel Coen’s ‘True Grit.’ Next, she is leading the Apple TV+ series ‘Dickinson,’ premiering this fall.

He was recently in the #1 highest grossing movie of all time: ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ His other appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe comprise of ‘Thor,’ ‘The Avengers,’ ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War.’

Moreover, the premise of the series is below:

“An adventure series in which Clint Barton (Renner), a non-superpowered hero, is trying to teach another hero with an affinity for the bow, Kate Bishop, how to be a hero with no super powers.”

Jonathan Igla (‘Mad Men,’ ‘Sorry for Your Loss’) serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner.

Further, the series will likely be six episodes long. There is currently no director as of now.

‘Hawkeye’ will premiere fall 2021, on the Disney+ streaming service.
