Hailee Steinfeld, who most recently starred opposite a giant computer robot masquerading as a crappy auto in Bumblebee, is joining another major franchise: Variety reports that Steinfeld has signed on to star in Hawkeye, one of a handful of new series Marvel is developing for Disney+. Black Widow, Thor and Hawkeye will still be a part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) in Phase 4. It helps that Steinfeld has already showcased her action chops; Bishop will likely be action-heavy and could even see her take on the mantle permanently in a potential Young Avengers spin-off movie or show. Kate Bishop, the fictional superheroine is trained by Clint Barton (Renner) to fight against crime with the help of a bow and arrow. In the comics, Kate Bishop is affiliated with the Young Avengers and the West Coast Avengers. He also mentions that the Champions may be involved, which could lead to Ms. Marvel joining a team after her Disney + debut.

We do have to keep in mind that while Variety reports that Steinfeld has been offered the role, we don't know what's happening on her end.

Given Steinfeld's rising star as an actor - and the prominent role Kate Bishop has played in Marvel Comics - this could signal an important future for Kate Bishop in the MCU.
