Jeremy Renner has played Clint Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for more than a decade. Now, the interpreter takes up his mythical character in the series Hawkeye. Disney + exclusively premieres the first two episodes of the new Marvel Studios fiction this Wednesday, November 24.
But in his new Disney + adventures Clint Barton is not alone. Kate Bishop, a young superheroine played by Hailee Steinfeld, accompanies Hawkeye in the new series based on one of the founding characters of The Avengers. "Hailee came very prepared, she was ready. It’s amazing. It is quite sad that it makes me feel old to see many new people arrive and see many others leave. I am like a grandfather. It’s terrible"Renner said with laughter in a virtual meeting with various media, including CulturaOcio.
"The relationship between Barton and Bishop is one of friendship, a wonderfully complicated friendship and all these kinds of things. You can put all kinds of labels on it. I think it’s a really dynamic relationship. I’m excited to see it all"the actor continued.
No need for casting test
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, revealed that Hailee Steinfeld did not need to audition for the role of archer Kate Bishop. "She was the perfect prototype for the character. We were very lucky that Hailee wanted to play the part because we had a feeling that she would be fantastic. And it is"he explained.
Actress Vera Farmiga plays Eleanor Bishop, Kate’s mother. The interpreter was very happy to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I love archery, without a doubt. I am an archer. In my first acting job I played an archer alongside Heath Ledger in a series called Roar. I’m good at it, to be honest", said the beautiful interpreter, who assures that she was also attracted to the project "the delicate and complex maternal relationship with the daughter".
Hawkeye from Marvel Studios is a new series set in New York two years after the Lapse, the return five years later to life for half the population of the universe after Thanos burned them to ashes in Avengers: Infinity War. Former Avenger Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), has a seemingly simple mission: to reunite with his family at Christmas. But will he succeed?
Perhaps with the help of Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), a 22-year-old archer who dreams of becoming a superhero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to spoil much more than the Christmas spirit.
Actors Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James and newcomer Alaqua Cox complete the cast of Hawkeye. The series is directed by Rhys Thomas and director duo Bert and Bertie. Hawkeye is part of phase 4 of the UCM, whose next appointment will be in theaters with the premiere of the long-awaited Spider-Man: No Way Home, a film produced by Sony and Marvel Studios and starring Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch.
