Hawkeye actor Hailee Steinfeld has finally picked up one Marvel film above all. While sitting down with D23’s official podcast, the Hawkeye star discussed her entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since 2008, fans have been debating on which Marvel film is the best, but there is obviously a wide range of answers. Well, for the person who has the mantle of Hawkeye now, it’s Avengers: Endgame. Well, if we talk fair, it is a really popular pick among a few segments of the Marvel fanbase. Endgame came out as the ultimate culmination of 11 years of Marvel films that came before it. Last but not the least, it also came as the final performance of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans in the Marvel Universe. There was a lot of pressure on the film before its release and well, the film paid off pretty well in every aspect gloriously. While we are keeping aside the various fan responses to certain decisions in the film, the film went on to become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. For Hailee, she grew up watching these films and following them, so something like Endgame certainly has a pull.
Here’s Hailee Steinfeld’s full answer:
She began, “Yes, my short answer is yes. A favorite it’s always hard for me to pick a favorite I love [Avengers] Endgame. That might be it. It’s Endgame until I go watch another one, then it will be that one for a while. It’s a vicious cycle of interchanging favorites.”
“But yea, I grew up watching these films. There’s something about them. It’s an experience to go and sit in a theater and watch these films. It’s what makes you want to be in them,” Steinfeld continued. “I mean, its the craziest thing, and what’s so amazing is its been proven that now even watching anything MCU from home is still that much of an experience. I think that says a lot about the MCU and the people involved.”
Here’s the official description for Hawkeye:
“Hawkeye is set in post-blip New York City where Clint Barton aka Hawkeye has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. But when a threat from his past shows up, Hawkeye reluctantly teams up with 22-year-old skilled archer Kate Bishop to unravel a criminal conspiracy. The series stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, and newcomer Alaqua Cox. Episodes are directed by executive producer Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert & Bertie; executive producer Jonathan Igla is head writer.”
