We may have our new female Hawkeye as it is being reported Hailee Steinfeld is being offered the lead role in the Disney Plus Hawkeye series.
Variety offers that Steinfeld has been offered the role of Kate Bishop, who in the comics becomes the new Marvel archer and is a member of the Young Avengers.
The Disney Plus series has been described as featuring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton training a new female character to become Hawkeye.
More than likely if Hailee Steinfeld is cast in the role, the Disney Plus series will lead to other appearances in the MCU for Kate Bishop.
Avengers 5 has actually been rumored to feature the Young Avengers, so Hailee Steinfeld and Kate Bishop could always appear there if the rumors are legit. Hulkling, Iron Lad, Patriot, Wiccan, Stature and Vision (not the Paul Bettany version) are also rumored for the flick.
