Hailee Steinfeld has made her MCU debut as Kate Bishop in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. The actress has given us some great work over the years and some of them include movies like Bumblebee, Dickinson, True Grit, etc. But the actress has only proven her acting skills been further with her Kate Bishop role. Today, we will talk about why Kate Bishop is Hailee Steinfeld’s best performance.
1. Promising & Long Future
If you’re a hero, and in the MCU, you can expect a few outings. Or safe to say, more than one. The same has happened with the MCU character Kate Bishop. The way Hawkeye ended, only proved that Steinfeld will be returning for more MCU projects because she is now crucial to the overall story. Kate Bishop has to learn a lot and can even go on to become a member of the up and coming Young Avengers. Despite this, she has a strong future and a young actress like Hailee Steinfeld can enjoy that privilege now. Previously too she has seen sequel-driven projects like Pitch Perfect and the Spider-Verse franchise.
2. 100% Relatability Factor
Hailee Steinfeld gets to become a superhero who is totally relatable. She has no superpowers, no power of flight or mind control, only pure skill. A skill that she had to work hard on for many years and remain hard at work since childhood. She represents every normal human being out there, proving once again that if you’re righteous enough with a strong skillset, you can hang out with the elites.
3. New Aspect Of A Marvel Hero
It was refreshing to see Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop in the MCU because, after more than 20 years, Marvel finally decided to change the hero template that they’ve been using. Mourning the death of their father is nothing new in the MCU. However, this is the first time that somebody’s mother came in the way of them being a hero. Well, it was only later revealed that her mother wasn’t that great, was she?
4. Incredible On-Screen Chemistry With Jeremy Renner
If you’re going to act, it’s not going to be alone. Now, if you know that, your skill will flourish. This is something that Hailee Steinfeld is aware of and her chemistry with her mentor, Jeremy Renner was simply impeccable. This very factor made the Disney+ series watching experience multiple times better. Playing Kate Bishop is a burden and doing it alongside Renner is not easy but Hailee did not let that throw her off and she delivered a fairly promising performance. It will be interesting to see her future adventures, mainly solos.
5. Finally, She’s A Superhero
Well, Steinfeld might be everything but she has finally got the chance to be a live-action superhero. Kate Bishop is as loved in the MCU as she is in Marvel Comics. So, if you’re playing a famous Marvel character, people are bound to scrutinize you, but currently, the fans are loving the casting and loving the idea of Steinfeld as Kate Bishop. She now has a complicated history with Yelena Belova, Maya aka Echo, and Kingpin. Her future adventures are only going to get better and it will be great to see this MCU character develop and possibly even see Steinfeld reach the peak of her career with this role. She is bound to team up with other Marvel characters. Did you like Hawkeye? Let us know in the comments below!
