Hailee Steinfeld is teaming up with Jeremy Renner for the Hawkeye MCU Disney+ series, and she talked about developing Kate Bishop in a new interview. Steinfeld is set to play Kate in the upcoming series, which will follow Clint Barton as he takes on Kate as a protoge.

Steinfeld spoke with ET (per SHH) and talked about the role, noting that she’s looking forward to let fans see her work.

“As I’m in the process of developing her, I’m working with some incredible filmmakers that are helping me bring her to life,” Steinfeld said. “I can’t wait for people just to see how we are interpreting this character through the comics. In her own sort of ways, she’s such a badass. There’s no denying that. She’s so smart and witty and quick, and her physical ability to do so many things is through the roof. It’s really tested me, and it’s kept me going through quarantine, I will say, it’s given me a reason to stay with it.”

The series does not yet have an official premiere date, but is expected to arrive late in 2021.
