While out promoting her new Apple TV+ series, Dickinson, actress Hailee Steinfeld was asked by the Radio Times about appearing in the upcoming Disney+ Original Marvel series, Hawkeye, as Kate Bishop.

“That’s not something that’s necessarily happening”  

Before adding:

“We’re going to wait and find out, I guess.”

Marvel haven’t officially announced that Hailee Steinfeld will be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, but she went onto explain how working on the new Apple TV+ show, Dickinson, has taught her about making a series, rather than a movie.

“I think generally speaking, this sort of experience has prepared me for working in this sort of space.  

So whatever opportunity might present itself in this space, I do think I will be able to tackle it, now that I’ve had some experience under my belt.

Working on Dickinson I very quickly caught on to the differences of film and television, just in the way that you shoot, the way that things are written on the fly. I guess that happens in film, just with revisions, but you know what you’re making. You have the script.

And with TV, directors are constantly changing. In film, you would take an entire day to shoot one scene, while on TV you’re filming an entire episode in a week, basically. Which is insane.


So, it definitely is a different approach. I think, sort of trying to treat it as if it’s a five-hour movie versus episodically, where each episode is its own story, beginning-middle-to-end, that was kind of a mindset I would go back-and-forth between.”

Hopefully soon we will get confirmation of her appearance in the upcoming Hawkeye series, in the mean time, before Disney+ launches, you can catch Hailee Steinfeld in Dickinson on Apple TV+.
