VARIETY is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is now in talks to star in the upcoming Disney Plus series, HAWKEYE. It's also the story of Kate Bishop, a character who takes the mantle of Hawkeye in the comics and now Marvel might have found her.

Playing Kate Bishop in the MCU will be Steinfeld's second starring role in TV as she will appear in the upcoming Apple series, Dickinson. According to Variety, finals negotiations and talks are in progress for her to take up the role of Kate Bishop.

While not much else is known about her possible involvement in the show, The Hollywood Reporter further clarified the actress is in early discussions to tackle the role. She also starred in Bumblebee, the first critically-acclaimed Transformers movie. It is expected that the role will go beyond this series, whether it be her own solo series on the streaming service, and/or appearances in the bigger films to come.

A rare full Harvest Moon expected for this coming Friday the 13th
While most moons rise approximately 50 minutes after sunset, the harvest moon can appear as soon as 10 minutes after the sun sets. The United States hasn't had a Friday the 13th full moon since October 13, 2000 - and the next won't occur until August 13, 2049.

Hawkeye is one of eight original series Marvel is bringing to Disney+ in the coming years.

Knowing how Disney and Marvel studios like to fully invest in their stars this more than likely would not be a one-off series for Steinfeld.

There's also the Loki series, with Tom Hiddleston as Thor's mischievous sibling, set for 2021, and then Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen as Vision and Scarlett Witch in "sitcom mash-up" WandaVision, also set for release in 2021. She was previously a part of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as the voice of Gwen Stacy. A clue that Hailee Steinfeld will be Marvel's new Hawkeye just hit the internet, and while the news is not yet official, it's looking very promising.
