More and more Hollywood A-listers are joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest being Oscar nominees Hailee Steinfeld and Liam Neeson.
Steinfeld is currently in talks to play Kate Bishop in the upcoming Disney+ series, “Hakweye” starring alongside Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton. Meanwhile, fans could see Neeson taking the role of Galactus.
The 22-year-old actress is no stranger to blockbusters – having starred in “Bumblebee” and voice Spider-Gwen in the award-winning “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”. In the comics, Kate is the daughter of a rich crime lord. After being assaulted, she trains to become a skilled martial artist and later becomes one of the Young Avengers.
She took up the Hawkeye identity after being impressed that a mere mortal could stand alongside superheroes like Thor and Captain America. No doubt we’ll get to witness the dynamic between Clint and Kate.
As for Galactus (known as the Devourer of Worlds), fans are predicting the larger-than-life villain to appear in one of Marvel’s cosmic movies like “Captain Marvel 2”, “Guardians 3”, a “Nova” film or maybe “The Ultimates”.
Nothing has been confirmed yet but Marvel is eyeing Liam Neeson. Other actors such as David Morrisey and Mark Strong are also on the studio’s radar. Out of the trio, Neeson is definitely the preferred choice as he possesses one of the most distinct voices.
