New set photos confirm Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop in Hawkeye Disney+ series

Back in July we ran a story which strongly suggested actress Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Bumblebee) signing on as Kate Bishop for the upcoming Hawkeye Disney+ series.

For some time thereafter, there seemed to be the possibility that the news was no more than unsubstantiated rumor due to lack of further credible reinforcement and Steinfeld’s scheduling conflicts with her other series Dickinson. Notwithstanding, over the past few days the rumor has been both brought back into the conversation and ostensibly confirmed, as the following leaked photos from the Hawkeye set have revealed.

The photos reveal Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop running down subway stairs, ostensibly in pursuit of an antagonist who has either committed a crime or holds some sort of valuable information.

Not only do these photos reveal Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye Disney+ series, but also Lucky the Pizza Dog, a canine sidekick first introduced in writer Matt Fraction’s run of Hawkeye. Hawkeye rescues the dog from members of the tracksuit mafia in the Fraction run and originally names him “Arrow” before later deciding to rename him “Lucky.” It’s unknown whether this origin will remain intact for the Hawkeye Disney+ series at this point.

More photos can be seen courtesy of the XRealm Matthews Twitter page, including more close-up shots of Steinfeld and Renner and a few shots where Renner seems to be instructing Steinfeld on using the Avenger’s trademark bow and arrow weapon:

Marvel’s Hawkeye Disney+ series is slated for eight episodes and a release date of some time in 2021. The series was filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, written by Jonathan Igla (Mad Men) and produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Hawkeye is one of many series planned to debut on Disney+ alongside The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Ms. Marvel, WandaVision, She-Hulk, Moon Knight and an animated What If…?.
