Following multiple reports (many of them on this here website) and a few paparazzi photos, Marvel Studios finally confirmed all those casting rumors for its Disney+ shows “Hawkeye” and “She-Hulk.”
We’ll break it down for you: Hailee Steinfeld is Kate Bishop on “Hawkeye” and Tatiana Maslany will be She-Hulk. Also, as previously reported, newcomer Iman Vellani will take the lead as the Muslim superhero Ms. Marvel. Mark Ruffalo himself will appear in “She-Hulk,” as will Tim Roth, who returns as Abomination from “The Incredible Hulk.”
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirmed all the castings on Thursday during Disney’s Investor Day.
As TheWrap first reported more than a year ago, Steinfeld had been attached to “Hawkeye” to play Kate Bishop — who takes over the mantle from Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton — for quite some time, though Marvel never confirmed it and the actress herself denied any involvement. Set photos this week revealed Steinfeld to be rocking some very comics-accurate Kate Bishop garb.
Additionally, Oscar Isaac is in talks to play the lead role of Marc Spector in “Moon Knight.”
The other big new casting news that Marvel announced Thursday was Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, a young Black woman who takes over the mantle of Iron Man.
