 I have a feeling he won't even be using a bow and arrow in this film.
San-Diego Comic Con announced the line-up for the 2012 film Avengers and the crowd went wild. One of the actors announced was Jeremy Renner as he was to play Hawkeye in the upcoming film. The first thing on everyone's mind is will he be in the purple outfit? MTV interviewed the actor about the costume as he was promoting his upcoming film The Town.
 
Will Jeremy be sporting that purple mask with the giant "H" on the forehead? "I think it's going to be a little more reality-based...You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]'s character [in 'Iron Man 2'], it's going to be more of a uniform . . . and not a big purple, comics sort of thing." Explained Renner. I hope every Hawkeye fan kind of realized this before Renner said it because although that costume may work in the comics, it will look pretty cheesy on the big screen. A lot of people seem to be tossing around the idea that we'll see a costume more like Ultimate Hawkeye, but my  "expert" opinion says otherwise. (By expert, I mean loudest) I believe that the most likely case scenario is that Black Widow and Hawkeye will have the same costume, except Hawkeye's will be a little more "manly."
 
What about a love connection for the hero of a thousand costumes? Jeremy explained that we may see a love connection between Hawkeye and Black Widow on the big screen, although it may not be in the first film. "We will, I think, in this one as well...We're kind of a team, and what that relationship is, is still to be discovered." So, their relationship may start here and continue onto the next film? Let's hope so! What do you guys think? What do you think the costume will look like? Do you want to see old Hawkeye in love?

Makes perfect sense. The purple costume will just not work with the tone of the marvel films.
 
I'm thinkiing something closer to the Ultimate costume.

I can live without it. They seem to be reading from the Ultimates playbook, so this doesn't surprise me.

If they ultimatize him it'll be the grey and red suit from the Ultimates.  Maybe the trench coat.  Wondering if they give him sunglasses as it's kind of hard to act if you can't show emotion in your eyes.  Unless you're a stone of course.  My guess is it won't straight up black.  Way to Matrix and X-Men.   I want to also know if he'll be the Hawkeye with bionic eyes.

ultimate was a bit cheesy for me too. not as the classic one, but not perfect. i hope it'll be non-uniformed sniper, war hero or something.
 
 
but without purplez >_<

#5 Edited by ComicMan24 (147115 posts) - - Show Bio

I was pretty sure that they wouldn't use the costume in the movie. A purple costume wouldn't translate well in the big screen.

Please let it be this Ultimate Hawkeye Version 2.0 Spec Ops outfit at least! 
 
As much as I'd love a bow-and-arrow, reality is that guns are IT.
#7 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio

ugh, I really hate the Ultimates version, tbh 
but I think purple is the wrogn way to go too 
maybe jsut something realistic and simple with a nod to the origional 
either in the way it's cut or styled, or even just in the way he dresses normally 
I have a feeling we'll see him in a purple t-shirt or something at some point in the flick

This costume could work.

the costume, sure 
but he NEEDS the bow, come on

@Shadowdoggy: I don't know about the bow but a crossbow wouldn't be bad.

@ComicMan24:
yeah, I guess so........if we can't have the bow 
pffft! 
but what the hell? 
Hawkeye without a bow? 
it wouldn't be right 
that'd be like Daredevil without a billy club

Just wait for a WildC.A.T.s movie if that's what you want. 
 
Hawkeye should be an archer; that's what makes him unique in the Marvel Universe.  If he's just a special ops sharpshooter, he could be any ol' SHIELD agent, and that's a disservice to the character and fans of the character.

A robot man, a medieval guy with a hammer, and a soldier wielding a red/white/blue shield:  and you think a bow & arrow will look out of place?

Very good point.
 
@Shadowdoggy:
Legolas and Robin Hood are not exactly the best examples. But I admit that Green Arrow in Smallville looks pretty good with the arrow.

why not? 
because they're "period style" garb? 
they're both badasses, you can't deny  
and he's not going to be wearing a tunic or saying "doth" or anything

Big Hawkeye fan here. This is what I'm hoping to see. I hate the post-Hitch design for Ultimate Clint. It's awful, it's ugly, and it defeats the purpose of the whole 'real world' feel the Ultimates were supposed to have (something made even worse when they redesigned Ultimate Thor)-- In my opinion, the later masked Ultimate Hawkeye would look so terrible on film, at that point they may as well just put his classic purple costume on screen.
 
Ultimates 1 & 2 design ftw.

@Shadowdoggy: I agree that they were both badasses. But I guess we will have to wait until the movie is released.

He must have a bow and arrows and trick arrows. And his suit should be a bit like Black widows/ SWAT suit but with purple accents.

that sounds very believable and possible

I want Hitch's suit with purple instead red and with glasses of a current Ultimate costume.

#36 Posted by moxie-lane (37 posts) - - Show Bio
@cmaprice: 
 
if they use this suit change the red part to purple and keep a bow and arrow like how green arrow does in smallville. Hawkeye is known for his arrows they can't get rid of that. if they do a lot of fans will be disappointed
#37 Posted by Decept-O (7284 posts) - - Show Bio

Why not integrate the color purple or dark violet into the black leather costume, like around the inner seams?  I understand not doing his threads like the comics, although having seen the Ultimates version, that isn't bad at all.  It'd be sweet if he wore some type of mask.   
 
I can live with the costume changes, totally undersandable, but what I get so tired of reading about with every damn blamed super hero movie is how they want to add romance to every frikkin' character.  Enough already.  I want action!  I could care less about Hawkeye bumping nasties with Black Widow.  Good Grief!
#38 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio
@Decept-O:
right? 
why does there ALWAYS have to be love interest? 
are they just trying to appease what they think women want to see in a movie? 
is it add an additional, thinly-veilded layer to the script? 
I don't get it 
I'd like to hope that maybe it's to set up for Mockingbird's eventual inclusion into the Avengers equation 
maybe they'd try to do a Secret Invasion movie at some point and have her come back from "the dead"
#39 Posted by ForbushBug (496 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't mind a little banter between Hawkeye and Widow. But with so many characters and some of them new, they gotta be careful about shoving too much into one movie.
 
And Hawkeye needs a bow and arrows. Guns are in every freakin' action movie.

Purple suit, in comic and cartoon form, maybe... 
Realife, that could be accecptable... 
Try black, black always works.

Totally with you their man but he should have some purple but make a dark purple, like a "so dark it's nearly black" purple. I mean Hawkeye wears purple it's his color, but I agree the bright purple he normally wears would look horrible.

Agreed. This will translate best and is the likely choice or something very similar).

A purple tint to whatever he wears would be good, seeing as they will change it.

I hope mockingbird comes in i know joss wheldon said he is considering adding wasp, mockingbird, and scar witch to the movie becasue people want them in there to go with their counter parts and to fill in the team. i love mockingbird and hawkeye together. plus she is in shield agent 19 even if she goes in as agent 19 and later transforms to mockingbird that would be cool

What's Hawkeye without his mask? That's like Batman not having his mask. I hate the Ultimate line of comics. So what's he gonna look like? He's gonna be some Shield agent with arrows. That's generic. They could at least compromise and make the purple darker and have black instead of blue.
#49 Posted by Strafe Prower (11888 posts) - - Show Bio

Ult. Hawkeye costume would work.

#50 Posted by MrErbac (115 posts) - - Show Bio

It sucks there gonna screw up Hawkeye. He's not Hawkeye without his mask. He's not Hawkeye without his mask and arrows for that matter.
