HAWKEYE Star Hailee Steinfeld Reveals Whether Kate Bishop Was Among Those Snapped Away By Thanos
Hawkeye star Hailee Steinfeld has revealed whether Kate Bishop was among those wiped out of existence by Thanos during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, and you can find her comments after the jump!
While Marvel Studios has definitely addressed the fallout from Thanos' attack on Earth in Avengers: Infinity War, it does feel a little like they've glossed over the ramifications of the Blip now the world's population has been restored. Not getting too bogged down in all of that is understandable, but fans continue to wonder which characters were among those dusted out of existence.
During a recent interview with The Wrap, Hawkeye star Hailee Steinfeld was asked if Kate Bishop was among the characters who turned to dust when the power of the Infinity Stones was unleashed. "No, I believe that we see her survive and we see, you know, loss there as well," Steinfeld confirms. "And that didn’t happen to her."
From a storytelling perspective, there was probably nothing to be gained from revealing that Kate was among those who died, especially when this series takes place two years after Avengers: Endgame.
We're sure the Blip will continue to factor into future stories to some extent, with it affecting some characters more than others (Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, for example, will likely see Scott Lang having to deal with a daughter who is now five years older than she was when he got lost in the Quantum Realm).
As for Hawkeye, the plan is clearly to keep the spotlight on Kate's journey towards becoming a hero.
In our review, we said: "Marvel Studios is once again sleigh-in' it with Hawkeye, an unmissable Christmastime team-up bringing holiday cheer to the MCU with top tier storytelling delivered in the Mighty Marvel Manner and a bold, brilliant new hero in Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop."
