Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe have long speculated about who might be cast to play Kate Bishop in the upcoming series that does not yet have a release date. The series is set following the climactic events of the 2019 blockbuster Avengers: Endgame, which is the highest-grossing film of all time.
