New videos from the set of Hawkeye show Kate Bishop in action, with Steinfeld appearing to do some of her own stunts on the streets of New York.
New set videos from Hawkeye show Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop in action. Steinfeld confirmed to be part of the show when filming began in New York earlier this month. Leaks from the set have been trickling out since. Set photos show Kate Bishop in costume, the appearance of Lucky aka Pizza Dog, and various other sequences that have fans excited for what's to come.
Jeremy Renner reprises the role of Clint Barton, mentor to Kate Bishop. Set leaks have confirmed the series takes place after Avengers: Endgame and explores Kate Bishop's time as Hawkeye, but not much else is known. Rounding out the cast is Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, and Alaqua Cox. Florence Pugh is also set to make an appearance as her Black Widow character Yelena Belova, but in what capacity she will appear is also unknown.
Photos and videos from the set, posted to Twitter by Cosmic and Hailee Steinfeld News, show Steinfeld in costume again, but this time pulling off some impressive stunts. Kate Bishop's in a comics-accurate costume, hanging from the side of a building by wires and falling into an awning of string lights before landing on the sidewalk. The photos also show the actress a little bloodied and bruised, teasing the fights to come.
The set photos seem to be from an action sequence, of which there are sure to be plenty. Recent trailers from Loki, WandaVision, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier have shown blockbuster scale action sequences. While Hawkeye's characters are more ground-level heroes, they are still likely to get caught up in some serious battles akin to Netflix's Marvel shows. While we don't see who exactly Bishop is fighting in the sequence, there are many possibilities, from Cox's Echo to Fee's Clown or Dalton's Swordsman.
While no date has been given for Hawkeye's release, it is expected sometime in late 2021 if filming continues as planned. With the show set around the 2025 New Year, Marvel may be aiming for a winter 2021 release timed with the show's temporal setting. With the show's production being pushed back from July to December, it will get a late start regardless. Hawkeye is set to follow the premieres of the shows mentioned above, and it will help introduce a new group of heroes after the decimation of the Avengers in Endgame. Introducing a new generation of heroes is no easy feat, but these photos and videos look promising for Kate Bishop's prospects as Clint Barton's protege.
