At San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Jeremy Renner would be getting his own solo Hawkeye series for Disney Plus. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also announced that Hawkeye will feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Kate Bishop and be inspired by Matt Fraction’s comic book run. It has also been reported that Bumblebee star Hailee Steinfeld has the offer to play Kate Bishop opposite Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton.
