One of the highlights of Hawkeye is Hailee Steinfeld’s debut as Kate Bishop. Fans have been gushing about her casting ever since it was revealed, and her performance in the series lived up to their expectations. The Oscar-nominated actress’s role in the MCU has been questioned, but it now appears that it has been decided.
Following her debut in the franchise last year, Marvel Studios reportedly has plans for Hailey Steinfeld to repeat her Kate Bishop character in upcoming MCU productions. This confirms her expanded engagement in the franchise. The details come from their article on the numerous nominations the MCU series got for this year’s Primetime Emmys.
There are currently no verified specifics on the next MCU projects Hailey Steinfeld is slated to feature in. After being sighted on the set, which led fans to believe they would be establishing the Young Avengers, there have been reports that she will feature in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Given that Steinfeld’s portrayal of Kate Bishop in Hawkeye was praised as a standout performance and that the comic book version of the character is regarded as a fan favorite, it is wonderful to know that Steinfeld will continue to feature in the MCU. At this point, it appears to be obvious that the character will continue to play a bigger role in the MCU.
Hawkeye managed to secure nominations for Outstanding Stunt Performance and Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or Variety Program yesterday, despite Steinfeld’s inability to receive one for her depiction of Kate Bishop. The existence of a second season of the show is as of yet undetermined.
All of Hawkeye’s episodes are available on Disney+.
