It’s being rumoured that Hailee Steinfeld is going to be joining the upcoming Marvel Studios Hawkeye series which is coming to Disney Plus. According to Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton, she’s going to be playing Kate Bishop in the show. This has been rumoured for quite some time now. However, it did look like she wouldn’t be getting to play the role due to scheduling conflicts.
Yet, we’re now hearing that she will be in the upcoming Hawkeye series on Disney Plus. This show is about to start filming next week, and Sutton is saying that Steinfeld is going to start filming the show when they start filming in New York. This comes after endless speculation surrounding her being cast in the role. Variety has previously reported Steinfeld was offered the role on September 9th, 2019. However, that announcement was followed by radio silence as far as whether she was going to be in the show or not.

However, yesterday Steinfeld posted a tease of Kate Bishop on her Instagram account. She posted a bow and arrow emoji and this seems to be a pretty big tease that she is going to be announced as Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye show. The reason why it’s been rumoured that she won’t be in the show is because of her Apple TV+ series Dickinson contract which has a non-compete clause in it.
Thankfully, it sounds like Disney and Apple have managed to sort things out. Hopefully, we might be getting an official announcement regarding Hailee Steinfeld being cast as Kate Bishop in the upcoming Hawkeye Disney Plus series.
