Hawkeye Will Not Have His Purple Costume From The Comics In The Avengers
In an interview with MTV, Jeremy Renner reveals that we will not see him don the classic purple getup from the comics when he appears as Hawkeye in The Avengers. He also hints at a romantic relationship between his character and Black Widow(Scarlett Johansson)
I think we all assumed that Hawkeye's classic purple gear wouldn't be making an appearance on the big screen. But would it be the Ultimates costume then? A combination of both? MTV put those very questions to Renner..
"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."
"That's why I think it's more palatable to audiences — there's almost a sense of reality to these superheroes, That's what makes it interesting to me, anyway."
In the comics, Hawkeye and Black Widow have been known to "hook up" at times. Will we see that in the movie?
"We will [have a relationship], I think, in this one as well, we're kind of a team, and what that relationship is, is still to be discovered."
I'll take that as a yes! Expect Johansson and Renner to share a few clinches in The Avengers. As for the costume, well I for one am glad they won't be going for the classic look in its entirety, although a nod to it would be nice. I hope they don't go completely Ultimate on it either though. If you watch the vid accompanying the interview, when Renner is explaining what we won't be seeing costume wise, he makes a gesture to his head and makes the shape of Hawkeye's Wolverine style mask. I think its a safe bet, whatever the costume turns out like, we won't see that in any way shape or form!
