Marvel’s upcoming “Hawkeye” began filming in New York last week and a video leak confirmed that Hailee Steinfeld was indeed playing Kate Bishop in the new Disney+ series.
Now, we have some first look images of the actress in her Kate Bishop costume which looks very similar to the character’s suit in the comic book series. You can see the photos in the Twitter posts below:

The new six-episode limited series will reportedly tell the story of Kate Bishop’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was recently revealed that Florence Pugh would also be joining the series as Yelena Belova, however it is unknown how large of a role she will have.
“Hawkeye” is also set to star Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring) as Eleanor Bishop, the mother of Kate, Fra Fee (Animals) as Kazimierz Kazimierczak, who you may recognize as the villain Clown, Tony Dalton (Better Call Saul) as Jack Duquesne who is better known as Swordsman, newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez aka Echo, a deaf Native American who can copy characteristics of people identically, and Zahn McClarnon (Doctor Sleep) as the father of Maya Lopez.
Jonathan Igla (Mad Men, Pitch) is writing the series and Rhys Thomas (Saturday Night Live) as well as directing duo Bert and Bertie (Troop Zero) are set to direct the upcoming Marvel series for the streaming service.
The series has yet to set a release date, however many are speculating the series could debut on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
