Jeremy Renner Was Glad They Didn't Go With The Classic Hawkeye Look For THE AVENGERS

There was a lot of debate around which costume would be best for Hawkeye in The Avengers. Purists favored the purple getup, but Renner ,who will play the character, was glad they went with a more Ultimate look..

Remember back when it was announced that Hawkeye would be appearing in The Avengers? Countless debates, arguments and discussions about what costume they would/should use. The comic purists wanted that old school purple look with the Wolverine style mask or some variation on it, those more in favor of a realistic take wanted them to go with something more like the Ultimate version.

Well the man who will be donning that costume recently spoke to Hitfix about playing Hawkeye. He reiterates much of the stuff we have covered about a possible spin off solo movie etc but one new detail he reveals is the following..


One thing Renner did appreciate about the role was the opportunity not to wear the "old-school" Hawkeye costume from the original Avengers comics.

"There’s a couple different universes," he said. "There’s the Ultimates, and then there’s the old school version. And I wasn’t interested in wearing purple tights when I’m 50, so I love that they went the Ultimates route."


Obviously as an actor having to wear the outfit he would favor the less "over the top" look. As do I. But now that you have seen how Renner will look as Hawkeye are you glad they went that route or would you have preferred a bit more color? A mask perhaps? It's a long standing debate and I'm sure it will continue to be. Should film makers make more of an effort to be faithful to the appearances of the comic character seven if it is very clear that they won't always translate to screen as well as a modified version?
