Hailee Steinfeld will be starring alongside “Avengers” star Jeremy Renner in the upcoming TV series “Hawkeye.”

The next day, Renner appeared to have confirmed her casting as well through a photo on his Instagram page. The two seemed to be on set and in costume while Steinfeld held onto a dog, as seen in Renner’s post.

Renner also uploaded a photo of a chair that had an arrow and the words “Clint Barton” printed onto it.

“[Bow and arrow emoji] [Ms]. Bishop… we need you! #marvel,” Renner said.

His posts came hours after E! News shared an image of Steinfeld holding a large bow as she followed Renner down subway station stairs. However, Steinfeld, Disney and Marvel have yet to comment on her casting.

Aside from Steinfeld, Florence Pugh, Vera Farmiga and Tony Dalton will also be appearing in the series. According to the report, Farmiga will portray Kate’s mother, Eleanor Bishop, while Pugh will play the spy Yelena Belova, the sister of Black Widow. Ryan Arcadio /ra
