'Hawkeye': Hailee Steinfeld on the season finale and Kate's heroic development (exclusive)

Hawk Eye ended its six-part debut season on Wednesday with a finale that featured big battles, bigger revelations, and many ramifications for the future of the Marvel Universe.

For Hailee Steinfeld, who made her Marvel live action debut on the series as Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye (not Lady Hawk) the season was a true roller coaster ride as her character went from idolizing Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton – aka Hawkeye – to working with him to shake off the dangerous tracksuit mafia, their boss. and a black widow while protecting some very important secret identities.

“There’s a lot of depth here and an awful lot at stake,” Steinfeld said in a recent telephone interview on ET of the season.

When asked to name her favorite moment Hawkeyes In season one, Steinfeld narrowed it down to two that perfectly crystallized her first adventures in the MCU.

“The chase in episode 3 … we had the absolute time of our lives with Jeremy and me,” enthused the actress. “I had a moment when we were doing the first take and I was literally like, ‘Yeah, that’s absolutely why I did this. This is part of the MCU. ‘”

“It was just so amazing because this show is so nicely balanced with these grounded characters and these very human emotional conversations and of course in perfect MCU fashion, the chases and the wild stunts and fight sequences,” she added. “That was one of the first moments I felt like I was in this very character-driven world and then we were thrown into the middle of that chase and it was just the most epic.”

Steinfeld’s other favorite scene was a highly anticipated confrontation that was instantly loved by fans – when Florence Pugh returned as Yelena Belova and showed up at Kate’s apartment to warn her about preventing the Red Room-trained assassin from removing Clint. to kill . Or, as Steinfeld remembered, “the evening of your little girls with some mac and cheese and hot sauce”.

“That’s what I enjoyed most about work and Florence is amazing in this scene,” she marveled. “That was really special and it was fun to play through.”

However, after her troubled meeting with Yelena, Kate received the news that shook her world in the finale: Proof that her mother Eleanor (Vera Farmiga) had worked with one of the greatest bad guys in Marvel history, Wilson, Fisk, also known as Fisk Kingpin, for whom Vincent D’Onofrio returns after portraying the menacing gangster on Netflix Daredevil Series.

“I remember reading that and I was very afraid for Kate, but had confidence that Kate, although it was very short, has grown a lot,” Steinfeld recalled, recalling her reaction to the revelation. “And I had the feeling that at this moment she is at least more able to protect herself than maybe a few days ago. And she still has an Avenger by her side to protect her. “

“But I think before I decided that she felt sorry for her, I was scared for her at that moment,” she continued. “She has done everything in her power to protect her mother and is finding that she may be someone she needs to be protected from.”

Does Steinfeld think Kate Bishop is ready for more superhero adventures in the future after her vacation heroes and a trial by fire at the life of the Avengers?

“She, I think, is being forced into reality, what it means to be a superhero. It’s not just about jumping off buildings and making people smile,” noted the actress. “There is, as she says, collateral damage that can come with it.”

“But that doesn’t stop her,” she added. “I think it upsets her and changes her mindset, but it doesn’t stop this burning fire inside of her to ultimately help people and protect people. She knows she can do it. And I think that alone can take us anywhere. “

Hawk Eye Season 1 is now streamed on Disney +.
