Jeremy Renner might have spoken too soon last year about whether Hawkeye would be showing up in THOR. Here we are, a month or so away from the release of that flick, and the rumored-and-denied cameo has been confirmed over at Cinema Blend. Basically, he’ll be a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a bow ‘n arrow who shoots a little breeze with Agent Phil Coulson (remember that dude?) You can actually find a pretty thorough breakdown of the scene (as well as a lot about the CAP movie, as well) at SHH, but I’m keeping the spoilers more surface-level here in the interests of those who’d like a little taste instead of a whole bite. It does seem kind-of obvious this would happen, considering how early on they signed Renner. You just knew there had to be more going on than him simply pre-registering his Avengers membership.
Anyway, from the sounds of it, Mr. Barton’s just going to be wearing a non-descript S.H.I.E.L.D. outfit, and it’ll probably be more in the vein of Black Widow’s understated ensemble instead of the showy white and bright blue outfits from the comics. Obviously, the next question is what suit he’ll wear once it gets to AVENGERS time? I’d put money down betting it’s not going to be the classic “purple bird” outfit, but some riff on his more practical suits from the ULTIMATES. Like maybe a minimalistic combat jumpsuit with subtle purple coloring. Do you maniacs concur?
