The best thing about the upcoming Hawkeye series from Marvel Studios is that the titular sharp-eyed archer played by Jeremy Renner isn’t the only protagonist. It also tells the story of Kate Bishop, the one who would go on to inherit Hawkeye’s mantle. And now, it looks like Marvel Studios has found her.

According to a recent report from Variety, Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld has seemingly been offered the role. Steinfeld is perhaps best known for her role as Emily in the Pitch Perfect series and, more recently, as the voice of Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Hawkeye, which is scheduled to air on Disney+ in the fall of 2021, will reportedly be written by Mad Men writer Jonathan Igla. Not a lot of information about the show is revealed at the moment, prompting fans to ask plenty of questions. Will the plot follow the comics? Will Clint Barton retire permanently, passing his title to Kate Bishop? Will she appear in an MCU movie?

Not a lot of details about the upcoming show are available, so many questions are still left unanswered

We can speculate that the answer to that last question will be affirmative, and if that indeed turns out to be the case, it’ll be a major turning point in the career of Steinfeld or whoever ends up taking the role. She not only has to commit to this one show, but will also get involved in one of the biggest franchises in the entertainment industry right now, which could go on for well over a decade.
