Kate Bishop’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might not end with the upcoming “Hawkeye” series.

Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Bishop in the show, said Tuesday during a “Hawkeye” press conference that Bishop’s role won’t end with the series.

When asked if her character would appear in a future “Young Avengers” film, she played coy. But she offered this little bit of insight — “Hawkeye” is only the start of her role.

“It’s only the beginning,” Steinfeld said. “The show isn’t even out yet.”

There have been a number of hints at a Young Avengers project coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For example, Bishop is featured in the upcoming Disney+ series “Hawkeye.” Bishop’s version of Hawkeye is a member of the Young Avengers in the Marvel Comics.

At the same time, Marvel “has already set for a Hulking introduction as well,” according to ComicBook.com. It’s unclear if Hulking will appear in the upcoming “She-Hulk” series.

Ms. Marvel will appear in her own show next year, too. And don’t forget about Tommy and Billy — who became Speed and Wiccan in the Marvel Comics — who appeared in “WandaVision” and might return in the future.
