In several photos and videos that have surfaced online, Hailee Steinfeld can be seen on the show’s sets in New York with Jeremy Renner, who has played the role of Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Hailee is no stranger to playing Marvel characters. She lend her voice to Gwen Stacy or Spider-Gwen in Sony’s 2018 animated superhero film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
