The latest Hawkeye casting news is pitch-perfect.
Hailee Steinfeld (the Pitch Perfect films, True Grit) has been offered the role of Kate Bishop in the Disney+ series based on Jeremy Renner’s Marvel Cinematic Universe character, our sister site Variety reports.
Kate Bishop is a member of the Young Avengers and the woman who becomes Hawkeye after Clint Barton (aka Renner’s character’s real identity) is the superhero no longer.
Steinfeld also is the star of the forthcoming Dickinson, the Apple TV+ period comedy in which the actress plays poet Emily Dickinson as she “audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender and family,” per the official series logline. Dickinson premieres this fall.
Launching Tuesday, Nov. 12 Stateside and rolling out globally over the next two years, a Disney+ subscription will cost $6.99 per month (or $69.99 for an annual pass; pricing varies outside the U.S.). The content will be ad-free. Series’ episodes will roll out weekly, as opposed to all at once.
Upon launch, the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian as well as High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: Too Many Colons will make their premieres.
