Check out Hawkeye's new costume in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Aug. 25, 2014by:

One of the hardest aspects to translate from comic book to film is the superhero's outfit. What works well on the page more often than not doesn't work well on screen. Sometimes this leads us to some bland costumes that don't say much of anything about the character. Hawkeye's outfit from the first Avengers was neither bland nor glaring, but for those of you who wanted something a little more akin to the purple number he wears in the comics, it looks like your cries have not fallen on deaf ears. Comic Book Movie got a hold of scans from the latest Empire Weekly, and as you can see, Hawkeye is edged just a touch closer in color to his comic counterpart in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Check him out:

If there's any member of the Avengers who's in desperate need of some fleshing out, it's Hawkeye. At the very least, we know he'll stand out a bit more in AGE OF ULTRON. It's hard to give some of the "lesser" characters more screen time when you have heavy hitters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk sharing the screen, but if Hawkeye and Black Widow don't get their own movies, maybe they can find time for Clint Barton to team up with another character (much like Natasha Romanoff did with Cap in THE WINTER SOLDIER). Either way, it'll be nice to see the character not spending the bulk of his screen-time as an evil drone.

Hawkeye's purple outfit will bedazzle audiences on May 1, 2015.

Too bad they gave an A grade actor a B grade character too play. Hawkeye doesn't warrant a major role and Renners talent is severly limited by it. That being said he signed the contract so he's stuck with it even if he isn't enjoying it. Although I'm hearing Hawk will be in Cap 3

Silly outfit for a silly character. Hope he doesn't make it to the end of the sequel. Terribly bland and his [link] is lame.

I didn't mind Hawkeye's role in aiding Loki in The Avengers. I just wish they had him do more with that particular storyline. He's a great actor and one of the better actors in the MCU and think he is vastly underused. I mean there is no reason why he shouldn't have been in Winter Soldier since a big, vital part was Shield and his partner in crime, Black Widow. I'm glad to see that he Renner and the character will be utilized and fleshed out more in Age of Ultron. He's too cool of a character

And the new suit looks terrific. Really embracing the comic book roots and colors.

Really? An armoured trench coat?

Stupid design for a stupid character for a stupid sequel to a stupid film. Hey Marvel, we're in 2014, Robin Hood belonged to the Middle Ages...

My dear harryameen, since when did success became a token of quality? 3 "Transformers" sequels, 6 "Saw" sequels, 3 "Star Wars" prequels, 11 "Amittyville" sequels/reboots... Success is not about quality, it's about having a marketing so broad it will reach litterally everybody on earth and eventually find a few people who will enjoy your product (a few of 7 billion people is a A LOT). Heck, with good marketing I could even send a crappy film with no acting and no story to the Oscars... Oh wait,

Looks great! I feel that if Hawkeye doesn't get his own solo movie, Marvel should at least make a team-up movie with him and Black Widow. I feel like a hard espionage action flick would work really well with those two characters. Neither of them have that deep or complicated of a back story, so it would work really well for fleshing out both characters within the MCU.

the on-going Hawkeye series has been great. Worth the first TPB at least.

Yup. The first Vol is like $11 on Amazon. I really enjoyed it and made me want to see more of Hawkeye on screen.

Am I the only one who wants to see a solo Hawkeye movie.....

Because of Jeremy Renner? He's such a good actor and I feel that there is a lot to explore with his character, whether it be a flashback story or him on a assasination mission.

That is very cool...it ever so slightly looks like he raided Loki's wardrobe and then had it modified, with the detailing on the arm and the length of the jacket.

I like it. More purple seems to be working. Do you think this outfit is something Stark made for him? Like Black Widows electronic gauntlets?

Yeah, the three caps on his fingers on his left hand do look like they would enhance his strength to pull on the bowstring and they could very well be furnished by Stark. I love the extra purple; I can only hope that when Falcon gets a full superhero outfit it's got the red accents.

I hope they leave their masks off tho. No point in having them now I guess. Hell, cap doesn't even need one

I wouldn't mind seeing Hawkeye wearing those cool, cool shades more often. Some of the characters could get away with goggles (Falcon's already doing that).
