Meanwhile, Marvel Studios is now all set to come up with the Hawkeye series. It stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga and Florence Pugh.
For the longest time, there were rumours around Hailee being a part of the project. However, she confirmed it only last month.
In a conversation with Entertainment Tonight, Hailee Steinfeld finally spilt the beans on her role in Hawkeye and shooting with Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton. “I can’t wait for people to see how we are interpreting this character through the comics and in our own sort of ways,” she said.
Talking about her role, Steinfeld added, “She’s so smart and witty and quick and her physical ability to do so many things is through the roof.”
