Some People, Somewhere Have Seen Hawkeye’s Movie Costume

Fact From the Vapor of Nuance


This weekend fans of the Marvel character Hawkeye, otherwise known as the guy who’s going to be in The Avengers that no one’s ever heard of, were treated to the news that he will be getting a brief cameo in the upcoming Thor movie.

On top of that, Disney also gave CinemaCon attendees a first look at Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye costume. Unfortunately… there are no pictures. Just a description, by ComingSoon’s Edward Douglas:

Basically, Hawkeye’s costume is going to be very similar to the Ultimates version of the character… In the concept art, we see Renner wearing similar dark glasses and a leather outfit with a matching over-the-shoulder leather quill for his arrows, only the movie version of Hawkeye has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo emblazoned on it to show his government allegiances. His precision bow is much like the one used by archers who do it for sports and hunting, which again, is also much like the Ultimates Hawkeye has in the picture to the left.

So. Less of the tiny little aubergine leather scales, more of the great big red leather downvote. Probably a good idea in general. At this rate, Tony Stark is going to be the most colorfully dressed guy in the group.

But we all know he wouldn’t’ have it any other way.
