Marvel Reveals the Avengers Costumes in SDCC Concept Art

The Avengers assemble to give an idea what the next Marvel Studios movie will look like.

Marvel Studios did not dedicate a lot of time or presence to The Avengers at San Diego Comic-Con. Their booth had elements of a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier command bridge and we saw some "agents" standing around but that's about it. Props for Iron Man and Captain America were on display but nothing really for The Avengers.

What Marvel did do was hand out mini posters with concept art for the individual members of the team in the movie each day. "Assembling" them together gives the complete image (courtesy of Bleeding Cool).

You can check a full size, high-res image by clicking here (if that still doesn't work, copy and paste this link: http://i.imgur.com/VQgzK.jpg).

What should be noted is we now have an idea what Hulk will look like as well as Cap's new costume and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

What are your thoughts on their looks? Do they look mighty enough for you?

  Meh, they look okay.  Nothing really special about them.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Hmmmm, so no Hank Pym or Janet van Dyne I guess. Ah well. Still looks good I say! Though for some reason Hawkeye looks like Speedy to me.

I literally just made a forum for this lol - looks good though

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Maybe they're too tiny to see?

I'm way too excited about all the movies coming out next summer.

I dunno, I kinda like Caps first costume better. Looks more realistic and badass. I guess it'll grow on me. Ironman has the circle at the center again instead of the triangle. Hawkeye looks husky and yes like speedy

Who's face is behind Hulks?? Mark Ruffalos??  I can't see

I don't like Cap's costume here, but I'm going to wait to pass final judgement on it until we get some set photos of it. Concept art can only look so realistic

Posted by Rowen545
@cattlebattle: Yeah that looks like a pensive Ruffalo

I read that Lou Ferrigno was gonna voiced the hulk. Can't wait!

Cool

They look good, but I just wonder how they will equally represent everyone, I doubt they will all get the same screen time...one of my biggest gripes with the team movies.

I like them but im really not a big fan of BLACK WIDOW.  
If we're only getting one female, WASP wouldve been better. No ANT-MAN, SCARLET WITCH, VISION or QUICKSILVER either!?  
Oh well...

That's exactly what I said. Unfortunatley, their using the lame Ultimates Hawkeye that is a SHIELD agent. The Hawkeye I know where's a cool mask and costume, and has been a member of Avengers, Defenders, and Thunderbolts, never SHIELD. Too bad because Cap's Avengers costume looks cool. They could've gave Hawkeye a similar treatment to his 616 costume.

I'm loving the art. Hawkeye doesn't look too bad at all. It would be more awesome if he had his mask.

Can't wait for this!! I wish I had the poster on my wall!
Posted by igbarriga
@GREGalicious: Hopefully theyll show up in sequels, although Scarlet Witch´s costume would have to be seriously updated

@ArtisticNeedham: save it to your computer, itll look normal once you open it

Thor's costume doesn’t look like that in the trailer, im confused!

Posted by ltbrd

Don't like the look of Captain America or Hawkeye at all. 
 
For Hawkeye I'm glad they chose the Ultimate version (like most of the other costumes) than the 616 version but at the same time I don't really like the idea of a guy with a bow and arrow in these movies. The point Marvel Studios has been trying to make with these films is giving them a sense of realism (even Thor) so that modern audiences don't dismiss them automatically on the basis of their comic book origins. Letting Hawkeye keep his bow and arrow doesn't fit that theme. It made sense for him to use the bow in Thor because he (Hawkeye) was only supposed to capture Thor not kill him. However come the Avengers film and whatever threat the team will face I think they should have given him conventional firearms. 
 
Now people will say (and rightly so) that Black Widow already carries a pistol (as shown in the poster though usually she has two). This is where you change her character a bit to fit the new universe. In Iron Man 2 she didn't use a gun at all and took out some dozen guards. So instead of showing her packing heat while she walks through a battlefield (like the animated movies did), keep her character on the espionage/stealth side and use her close-quarter combat skills solely with the occassional single pistol. Then you can have Hawkeye be the sole multi-gun member of the team. You can still show scenes of Barton practicing with his bow but when duty calls the guy grabs his guns. 
 
As for Captain America, his new costume is obviously keeping with the look of Hawkeye and Black Widow so that makes sense....but compared to the grittier, battlefield look of his last uniform this one seems too much like a way to make him wear something similar to tights. We only catch a split second of him in it (while sitting down) in the Avenger's teaser at the end of his movie, but even in that second it just doesn't seem right. The belt also looks a bit too Batman-esque (comic book Batman not Nolan version). Think it would just look better and have better connection to a battlefield soldier if they had kept the general look of the last suit (with the brown straps and belt) and just slimmed down the padded parts to make it look more modern. However I do like that the new version will cover his neck. 
 
As for their not being Hank and Janet Pym.....who are those two behind Nick Fury. The guy doesn't look like Agent Colsen and we haven't seen the woman before. So maybe this is the movie version of the Pym's and instead of being scientists/Avengers they are top agents like Black Widow that will work directly for Fury rather than be part of the team.

Also where is Captain America's gun???? If they take away his firearms because he's in the 21st century now and that is something they don't want him doing because he isn't in a war then I'm gonna be pissed off. Yes the 616 Cap doesn't carry a gun, but he didn't even in the war. The Ultimate Cap and the Cap presented in the movies did carry a pistol and that's something that should be retained for his character since Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and the other two agents all have guns. Cap might be the peak of human potential but he's still just a guy and he doesn't have the technological enhancements of the Iron Man suit nor Thor's strength and magical abilities and Hulk's strength. So please Marvel don't go weak on us and take away Cap's sidearm. It made a great change from normal for his film and needs to be retained.

they all look pretty good, but i liked caps look in first avenger better than avengers

For those saying the image is not working properly, it works fine on bleeding cool, the site that they got the image from and there is a link to in the article. I think they all look cool apart from Hawkeye, who looks pretty lame. Also I am not really a fan of Black Widow being in the movie but whatever.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

the roster could have been a bit better but it makes sense. im so freakin excited for this movie
Posted by Grimoire

Hulk looks pretty cool.

@Blizaga101

good point

Hawkeye could use some body armor and a damn gun, he's not friggin superhuman or bulletproof. 
Please Marvel don't make stupid henchmen who don't even bother shoot a weapon at a man walking around with a bow and arrow. I hate young justice for that.

I got to see the full image in big by using a laptop and plugging it into a monitor it and making the browser fit on both screen

Posted by deskp

the tern concept art isnt apropriate for these posters.

Posted by frozenedge
Hawkeye's look reminds me of his Ultimate counterpart. Still a little trying to get used to the Hulk's new face. Whoever his surgeon is must be getting paid a lot for all the face changes he's had
Posted by artymcdougal

so jealous~ :[

Posted by mikeclark1982

i am not going to see this. 

Edited by Namor1987

They're going for the realism theme. So yeah they are going to blend 616 & Ultimate costumes I love Captain America's new costume its more of that state-of-the-art in production body armor where as the other he looks like a painted infantry person. As for those of you wondering the two agents behind Fury are Phil Courson & Maria Hill (she's a high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. officer & he was responsible for more or less gathering intel & observing Avengers candidates). Hawkeye just needs some sleek & stylish red or purple tinted glasses that maybe collapse into a mask. BTW haven't you heard of silencers for Black Widow this is the MU knowing her it's probably silenced or not a regular ammunition gun

I would have liked a few more 'powers' in the roster. As is stands more than half the team are unpowered and I've already seen plenty of films about people shooting guns at one another.
