Marvel's Hawkeye Show Adds More Actors, Including Black Widow's Florence Pugh
Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld will star in the upcoming Disney+ show.
Hawkeye is one of several live-action Marvel shows in the works for Disney+. The show is currently in production in New York, and following the confirmation that Hailee Steinfeld is co-starring alongside Jeremy Renner, several new cast members have been reported.
The news comes via Variety, which states that Florence Pugh, Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Alaqua Cox, and Zahn McClarnon will all appear in Hawkeye. Pugh is set to reprise her role of Yelena Belova from the movie Black Widow, which was originally set for release earlier this year but will now hit theaters in May 2021, while Fermiga will play the mother of Steinfeld's character Kate Bishop.
In terms of the other actors, Variety states that Fee will play a character named Kazi, who could be Kazimierz Kazimierczak, the alter ego of the villainous mercenary Clown. Dalton will appear as Jack Duquesne, aka Swordsman, who was a mentor to Renner's Clint Barton.
Hawkeye doesn't have a release date yet, but as it's already in production, there's a good chance we might see it in 2021. The showrunner is Jonathan Igla, who was one of the main writers on AMC's highly acclaimed Mad Men.
The first MCU Disney+ series is WandaVision, which premieres on January 15 and stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and the Vision. Other Marvel Disney+ shows on the way include Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, She-Hulk, Ms Marvel, and Moon Knight.
