Hey, it’s about time the MCU locked down Hailee Steinfeld. From Bumblebee to Into the Spider-Verse, she’s been in plenty of big franchises outside of the biggest super-franchise that’s ever super-franchised. Now, according to a new report from the folks over at Variety, she may be up for quite the key role in the impending Hawkeye Disney+ series.

The outlet states she is in talks to join as Kate Bishop, who comic book fans know takes on the mantle of Hawkeye after Clint Barton, who is once again being played by Jeremy Renner. Bishop is also a member of the superhero team the Young Avengers.

If this is locked down, this will mark the second substantial TV role in recent memory, with Apple TV+’s Dickinson being the other series. Of course, the benefit of the Hawkeye role is that Steinfeld could also cross over into the film world and maybe even lead (or co-lead) a film in the eventual future.

Given Steinfeld’s amazing work on films like True Grit and Edge of Seventeen, Marvel Studios can definitely do much worse in the talent department for this role. What do you think of Steinfeld joining Hawkeye? Let us know your thoughts down below!
