Marvel's Hawkeye Series Possibly Eyeing Ready Player One Actor to Play Kate Bishop

It looks like the Hawkeye series is on a roll when it comes to updates. The upcoming Disney+ show just nabbed directors to work on several episodes and now it might be closing in on its lead star. There are speculations that the Marvel Cinematic Universe series already has its eye on the star of Ready Player One to play Kate Bishop.

Some insiders have posted interesting details about the Hawkeye series on Twitter. For instance, a fan tweeted out their hopes that Bumblebee actress Hailee Steinfeld will be cast as Kate. However, Derek Cornell had some bad news.

Ouch, it looks like Steinfeld wasn't lying when she claimed that she has other plans for the future. On the other hand, a separate tweet confirmed that Marvel Studios already moved on and found other candidates.

"Months ago Olivia Cooke and Taissa Farmiga were rumored to be in the running. No idea if either of those ended up being Kate Bishop or if they went with someone else," the tweet read.
