Hawkeye: Hailee Steinfeld Reveals How It Was To Work With Florence Pugh
Although Marvel fans’ eyes are all pointed to December and the premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home, we still didn’t forget there’s one MCU project that’s about to debut before that. Hawkeye, Marvel’s Disney+ show is set to premiere on November 24. Fans of MCU are excited for the return of Jeremy Renner, one of the most underused Marvel veterans, as Clint Barton aka Hawkeye and the debut of Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, Hawkeye’s protégé and a successor of Hawkeye.
One of the returning stars of the show is Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, who debuted earlier this year in Black Widow. Yelena is known as Natasha Romanoff’s sister from the red room, where they both had the training to become Black Widows. In the post-credit scene of the movie, Yelena visited Natasha’s grave and there she was accompanied by Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, nicknamed Val, who showed Yelena Barton’s image, saying he’s responsible for Natasha’s death. I think it’s obvious how that sets up Yelena’s appearance in Hawkeye.

Although we still need to see how will Yelena’s encounter with Hawkeye resolve, Hailee Steinfeld revealed how was working with Pugh on the set:
“We had a moment together where we were shooting and something went wrong. There was no recovering from it. I started laughing so hard that somebody thought I was crying… and I just remember a flood of people rushing in and being like, ‘Is everyone okay?’ And I’m literally facedown on the ground, just hysterically laughing. Mind you, we were in a scene that was in no way, shape, or form meant to be at all funny. We really did have a wonderful time together.”Hailee Steinfeld for Cosmopolitan
Additionally, Steinfeld recently teased us with how will Kate Bishop and Yelena’s first meeting look:
“They meet, huh? Wow. I bet that’s a fun and interesting encounter. Working with this entire cast has been absolutely incredible, it’s been an absolute dream.”Hailee Steinfeld for Extra
Created by Jonathan Igla, Hawkeye will premiere on November 24 with its first two episodes. The series will consist of six episodes.
