She’s everyone’s first choice and now, despite what seemed like mounting evidence to the contrary, Hailee Steinfeld has reportedly crossed the necessary “I”s and dotted the necessary “T”s and will portray Kate Bishop in the upcoming Disney Plus streaming series Hawkeye.
The Illuminerdi broke the news of Steinfeld finally agreeing to the role (news that was later given a 100% confirmation seal of approval by MCU Cosmic) just about a week after members of Disney Insider mentioned that the actress was no longer in contention. However, MCU Cosmic, who was privy information about the moments leading up to Steinfeld’s signing of her contract, expects a trade announcement might come shortly.
The Illuminerdi’s report also indicated that Hawkeye, originally set to start production in late-September, is now looking at an October start date with filming expected to wrap in March. If all things stay on track, we should see Hawkeye hit Disney Plus as early as next August.
