Vera Farmiga is officially joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year in Disney+'s Hawkeye. Not surprisingly, the Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It star is hyped up about being a part of the franchise but she's also proud of her co-star Hailee Steinfeld. Farmiga couldn't stop praising Steinfeld's performance as Kate Bishop.

Back in December, it was announced that Farmiga would be joining the cast of Hawkeye as Kate's mother Eleanor Bishop. This was great news but we didn't hear much from Farmiga while the series was in production. Luckily, the Godzilla: King of the Monsters star has finally spoken up about the project.

Farmiga recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight while promoting her latest Conjuring movie. The actress didn't share much about her own role in the MCU series. Instead, she decided to praise Steinfeld.


"Hailee kills it in the role. He trains a new successor, Hawkeye trains a new successor, so Kate Bishop's coming up," Farmiga shared. "I play her mama, and I had a blast. It's gonna be pretty special, I think."

It certainly sounds like Farmiga is impressed with what Steinfeld had done in the show. Needless to say, we can't wait to see them both in action later this year.

Hawkeye brings back Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton. The series also stars Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d'Arcy James, and Alaqua Cox. The new MCU show has not yet been given an official release date but is set to premiere on Disney+ in late 2021.
