Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed has surfaced in a new video sharing screen test footage of Newton and Jeremy Renner acting together.
Renner is in character as original Avenger Clint Barton aka Hawkeye in the video with Newton testing as Kate Bishop, the role that Hailee Steinfeld ended up landing.
Newton as many MCU fans will know later ended up playing the daughter of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, Cassie Lang, where she debuted in Quantumania.
Kathryn Newton’s Kate Bishop Screen Test
You can watch Newton’s Kate Bishop screen test below.
In the video above, Newton can be seen testing out being in the shoes of the Kate Bishop character who is famously known for being Hawkeye’s partner in heroism.
As mentioned, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse star Steinfeld later ended up winning the part as Kate Bishop and later appeared in the first season of Hawkeye.
Since the series fully aired on Disney’s streaming service Disney+, Steinfeld has yet to be seen in any additional projects set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Besides serving as the voice for the animated Gwen Stacy in the MCU-adjacent Miles Morales Spider-Verse franchise where she will also be returning for its threequel.
Will Kathryn Newton Return As Cassie Lang?
Despite the general reaction to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania being less than positive, it’s still likely that Newton will return as Cassie Lang in a future MCU project.
Marvel Studios seem to be fairly busy introducing plenty of future Young Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most being the children of past and present heroes.
Many believe that Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop is set to become the leader of a currently unannounced but highly expected “Young Avengers” project, whether it be a full theatrical release or limited series for Disney’s streamer.
So it’s more than safe to assume that both Newton’s Cassie Lang and Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop will one day get to interact with each other on screen.
Hawkeye can currently be streamed exclusively on Disney+
