Check out Hawkeye's new costume for "The Avengers: Age of Ultron"

hawkeye marvel comics outfitLongtime readers know I could find very little wrong with “Marvel’s The Avengers” save for one thing – the boring, drab costume given to Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye.

For the sequel, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Hawkeye apparently will be sporting some new duds that are slightly more reminiscent of his comic book costume as we see in this on set pics. Hawkeye and new costume3 in Avengers Age of Ultron

I wish it was more purple than maroon though, but I appreciate he’s got more of a costume this time instead of a leather vest. What do you think of the switch?Hawkeye and new costume in Avengers Age of Ultron

    I would have liked to see more purple than maroon as well, Marvel what’s so damn hard with just making the accents purple which is a better color than maroon anyway. As far as the outfit goes, it looks pretty good and is a definite improvement over the outfit in ‘Avengers’.

  • Especially with Scarlett Witch covering the dark red costume now.
    I’m glad to see an update for another reason – I can probably track down this Hot Toys version a lot easier! 🙂

    LOL I know Jeff, you’ve been trying to track down Hawkeye for a while now. A friend of mine was just like you, he finally got him Hawkeye for around $450-$500 I believe about a month or two ago. If I’m not mistaken Hawkeye is the only Avenger you currently do not have right? With this new look I could see Hot Toys making another Hawkeye.

  • To be honest, my dislike for the costume is what made me pause in the first place so I’m not regretting skipping it. Still need Hawkeye and Captain America … and soon Falcon, Quicksilver, Scarlett Witch… 😉

    I didn’t know you didn’t have Captain America, come on Jeff you slipping man haha. The new exclusive version form ‘Cap 2’ is already sold out and on the waiting list. But the Stealth version should be available soon, I think i’ll get that since I only have one ‘Cap’ right now. Don’t foget about getting Winter Soldier, Ultron and Vision(especially if has a great look).
