Hailee Steinfeld in talks for a lead role in the Disney+ Hawkeye series

Multi-talented actress, Hailee Steinfeld, is reportedly in talks to star in the upcoming Hawkeye spin-off on Disney+. She would be playing the role of Kate Bishop, who - in the comics - takes on the mantle of Hawkeye.

Jeremy Renner is also set to star playing the Hawkeye character as seen in the MCU movies so there's a solid chance that this series could become something of a baton-passing exercise going forward.

Steinfeld has plenty of Hollywood kudos behind her having recently starred in the well received Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee. A film that not only was better than any other film in that franchise but also featured a great leading performance from the actress. This makes us hopeful that her casting will also see her feature in one or more of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 films.

That said, Hawkeye isn't expected on screens until Autumn 2021 so it'll be a fair while before we get to see what is instore for both Hawkeyes!
