‘Hawkeye’: Hailee Steinfeld discusses joining MCU

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow, more and more actors are finding themselves a part of this incredibly high-profile club. And now that MCU has been around for 13 years, many of the franchise’s new additions are becoming part of something they’ve seen since they were kids. E.g, Hawkeye star Hailee Steinfeld was 11 when the MCU was launched with 2008’s Iron Man. Fast forward a few dozen movies later, and here she is, bringing fans’ favorite Marvel hero Kate Bishop (aka Hawkeye) to life in a Disney + original series with Jeremy Renner.

Decider got the chance to talk to Hawkeyes dynamic duo ahead of the show’s premiere on November 24, and Steinfeld talked about what it was like to join a franchise she’s seen on the big screen for years. Steinfeld could not remember where she was when she saw Avengers for the first time (Renner joked that she “probably did homework”), but you’d better think these movies made an impression.

“I can tell you I remember that [the feeling I had] walk away from [2012’s Avengers]said Steinfeld, “There are many [movies] I want to see that – I’m a very slightly excited person when it comes to things like this – but I remember seeing more of the Avengers movies and feeling like, ‘How incredible would it be to do something on this scale?’ And here we are. “

Renner, who has been playing Hawkeye for a decade now, remembered what it was like to meet his new partner on the set for the first time. “It always felt right. I felt comfortable. I felt like I had a partner,” Renner said, very slowly and methodically, to Steinfeld’s astonishment.

“Why do you say that?” she asks Renner with a laugh.

“That’s how it felt! That’s how I felt when you were on the set the first day! ” said Renner in false defense. “That was what I wanted, wasn’t it? Then I realized at lunch, ‘Oh, God, I was completely wrong.'”

But seriously, Renner said that creating a partnership with Steinfeld “felt easy for many reasons. I have a unique actress and a wonderful human being, and I think so. [how we] grew in [our dynamic] were also expressed in our characters. That’s nice, man. That’s a nice thing. And it’s nice to have a good person to work with. ”

If it’s not clear from their back and forth, Jeremy and Hailee Clint and Kate’s teasing clap so much that it’s just the way they interact with IRL now. You’ll get to see these two of the world’s greatest archers come alive on screen when Hawkeye premieres at Disney + on November 24th.
