So just what has Hawkeye been up to in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War? Perhaps he was getting tested out for the fitting of his new outfit. Okay, that’s a guess, but it’s probable that Hawkeye will get a new look and design in the upcoming Avengers 4 film. How he’ll ultimately be designed is anyone’s guess until we get an official look, but for now, one worker over at Marvel Studios shared a design for Clint Barton unlike what we’ve seen before on film.
Charlie Wen, the co-head and founder of Visual Development at Marvel Studios, recently shared a photo on social media of Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, but decked out in…much more protection. I’m talking a helmet, pads, more shoulder protection, and overall a much more guarded Clint than we’ve seen him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going all the way back to his first appearance in Thor in 2011. This design for Hawkeye, he says, would have been cobbled together from what Clint already has at home.
The finalized design itself was done by Andy Park, a concept artist and Director of Visual Development at Marvel Studios. The photo also includes the caption: “Urban Hawkeye! I designed this to be different than his superhero version. This would be a costume collaged together from what he already had at home. The final design was done by @andyparkart.” Here, have a look at the Hawkeye design in the photo below:
Again, though, until we get an official look and design in relation to the upcoming fourth Avengers film, we don’t know yet just how Hawkeye will ultimately look in the next Marvel Studios ensemble piece. But what do you make of this more protected and urban look for Clint? Would you like to see him have a design like this for Avengers 4? Let us know in the comments below.
Avengers: Infinity War is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
