Hailee Steinfeld has finally been confirmed to be playing Kate Bishop in Marvel Studio’s Hawkeye. Murphy’s Multiverse has revealed the first look at Steinfeld in character on the set of the Disney+ series.
It was first reported that Steinfeld was in talks to play Kate Bishop in September 2019; however, since then, the report has been drawn into question due to the stars’ schedule and a number of other factors. Nevertheless, it has finally been confirmed that she will play Kate Bishop alongside Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton.

The footage features Renner and Steinfeld’s characters running into a subway along with Lucky the Pizza Dog, where the trio then board a train. It appears that they could be on the run from someone in the footage, which would explain why they seem so anxious. Hawkeye will reportedly feature a number of villains, including The Clown, the Tracksuit Mafia, and Madame Masque, so perhaps any one of them could be pursuing the heroes.

Additional photos from set have revealed a clear look at both Steinfeld and Renner’s characters. It appears as though Kate Bishop already has her bow, which could suggest her training has already begun. It also seems as though Clint may, in fact, go deaf in his solo series. In the images above, Renner can be seen sporting an earpiece of some kind that looks similar to a hearing aid.
The upcoming series will star Jeremy Renner as the Avenger Clint Barton. Hawkeye will reportedly feature Barton training a new hero named Kate Bishop. Additionally, Bumblebee‘s Hailee Steinfeld will star as Bishop. Jonathon Igla, who has previously worked on Mad Men, is writing the series. A handful of episodes are set to be directed by Bert and Bertie and Rhys Thomas. Additional rumors tease appearances by The Clown and The Tracksuit Mafia as well.
