She initially denied being offered the role of Kate Bishop in Marvel’s Disney Plus Hawkeye series.

Earlier this month, however, images from the Hawkeye set showed Hailee Steinfeld filming scenes alongside Jeremy Renner.

Jeremy is reprising his role as Clint Barton in the series. He first portrayed Clint, aka Hawkeye, in the 2011 Marvel movie, Thor.

Last week, at Disney’s Investor Day 2020, Marvel Studios president and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige finally confirmed that Hailee is indeed joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe production as Kate Bishop.

Following Kevin Feige’s confirmation, Hailee shared with her social media followers a back view photo of herself, wearing the archer’s purple costume.

She captioned the photo: “Incredibly excited to officially share this with the world…”

Is Kate Bishop related to Clint Barton?

Her character, Katherine or Kate Bishop, first appeared in Marvel Comics: Younger Avengers #1 in April 2005.

In issue #12, Kate fought alongside the Young Avengers after adopting the Hawkeye mantle when the original Hawkeye, Clint Barton, was presumed dead.

When Clint returned, Kate kept the Hawkeye moniker and trained under Clint. They are not believed to be related.

The upcoming Disney Plus series will follow Clint as he trains Kate Bishop to become the next Hawkeye.

Filming for Hawkeye began in early December in New York City. The first set of photos showed Hailee and Jeremy working with a golden retriever, who will play Clint’s adopted dog, Lucky the Pizza.

Jeremy Renner’s character, Clint Barton, adopted Lucky after saving him from the “tracksuit mafia.” He was identified as “Arrow” on his dog tag, but Clint renamed him Lucky.

Taking a break from their superhero duties, Jeremy and Hailee were pictured in civilian clothes on the set.

Jeremy layered up in dark shirts topped with a brown leather jacket. He finished off his look with a pair of black jeans and brown shoes.

Meanwhile, Hailee simply threw an oversized dark-colored plaid coat over her white tee and ripped jeans combo.

Not related to Jerry Seinfeld, she also wore the same plaid coat and shredded jeans with a black beanie and a ribbed top in purple color, which is one of Hawkeye’s primary colors in the comics.

In another set of photos, Jeremy and Hailee appeared to have filmed a fight scene as they both have bruise makeup on their faces.

Hailee was wearing a purple sweatsuit with her calf-length plaid coat while holding her huge bow in one hand and Lucky’s leash in the other.

Putting on a more stylish look, Hailee also donned a black-and-orange embroidered pantsuit on the set.

Jeremy, on the other hand, appeared to be wearing the same outfit, which included a brown jacket and black jeans.

A few days later, fans were finally able to see Hailee in her iconic purple Hawkeye costume.

The fans’ excitement, however, turned into a disappointment as it was not exactly Kate Bishop’s suit from the comics.

Some say though that it could be an early prototype or one of the many versions of Kate’s full original suit since she’s still in training.

In the latest batch of set photos, Jeremy looked more formal in a tuxedo suit. Hailee, on the other hand, donned a long trench coat over a high-neck, long-sleeved outfit.
