In September of 2019, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Bumblebee) was rumored to be playing the young archer and fan favorite Marvel character Kate Bishop in Hawkeye, one of Marvel Studios’ upcoming live-action shows for Disney+. That casting was not confirmed until very recently, and there were even some rumblings that she may not be able to take the role because of a stipulation in her contract for the AppleTV+ series Dickinson, in which she stars.
But everything worked out. During last night’s Disney Investors conference, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige confirmed that Steinfeld was playing Kate Bishop. And then Steinfeld and original Hawkeye Jeremy Renner took to social media to share a first look at Kate Bishop in the series. Check it out below. Read More »
Just in case you were still waiting for confirmation, it looks like it’s official: Hailee Steinfeld is part of the Hawkeye cast. Steinfeld has been rumored to play Kate Bishop for a while now, but there’s been next to no confirmation. In fact, at one point, Steinfeld seemed to flat-out deny she was even appearing in the series. But the other day, Steinfeld was spotted on the Hawkeye set in character, acting alongside star Jeremy Renner. And now a new report from Variety confirms she’s part of the cast – and she’s got company. Florence Pugh, who will appear in Black Widow, will pop-up on Hawkeye as well. And so will Vera Farmiga, Better Call Saul‘s Tony Dalton, and more.

If you thought Pitch Perfect 3 was the last time the Barden Bellas would get back together make some aca-awesome a cappella music with their mouths, think again.
As the musical competition circuit announcers John Smith (John Michael Higgins) and Gail Abernathy-McKadden-Feinberger (Elizabeth Banks) so succinctly put it, “It seems that not even a quarantine could keep them from harassing us with another musical performance.” The Barden Bellas from across all three of the Pitch Perfect movies have gotten back together virtually, including Anna Kendrick and Hailee Steinfeld, to perform Beyoncé’s 2011 hit “Love On Top,” and it’s all for charity.

It seems that Marvel is moving forward with the Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner — for now. Avengers: Endgame producer Trinh Tran gave a very positive update on the series, whose status has been in question recently following some troubling reports about its star.

Emily Dickinson is a woman ahead of her time, quite literally in the case of the upcoming Apple TV+ series starring Hailee Steinfeld as the legendary female poet. Dickinson is a coming-of-age comedy series set in the mid-1800s that is all about those anachronisms, Steinfeld and her co-stars happily sling around words like “dude,” and “gross.” But it certainly makes Dickinson stand out from the crowd of stuffy biographical dramas — that and seeing John Mulaney rock an old-timey beard as Henry David Thoreau. Watch the new Dickinson trailer below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Apple TV+’s upcoming comedy series Dickinson doesn’t do subtlety. The first trailer, which previewed a period drama rife with anachronisms and punk-rock rebellion, hinted as much — bucking perceptions of the literary icon Emily Dickinson as some kind of buttoned-up lady. Instead, as portrayed by Oscar-nominated Hailee Steinfeld, she’s a modern rebel who spouts words like “dude” and grapples with the concept of Death, which happens to look a lot like Wiz Khalifa. Watch the official Dickinson trailer below.

If the deal goes through, she’ll join Jeremy Renner and presumably take over as the MCU’s primary archer – because every good superhero team needs that person with a bow and arrow running around as the team’s X factor.
