If you’ve enjoyed Matt Faction‘s run on Hawkeye then you’re very familiar with Faction’s take on how much Hawkeye gets banged around and beat up while trying to go about his daily routine. (If you haven’t read that series you should.) In a life mirroring art moment, Jeremy Renner fractured his right elbow and left wrist during a stunt while filming Avengers: Infinity War. Check out his Instagram post below. (more…)

Marvel Studios and Netflix launched Daredevil season two this past weekend, and considering the hype of including major characters like Punisher and Elektra, not to mention the good willed sewed with the tremendous first season, it’s safe to say it was another hit. Between Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the building hype for the fall premiere of Luke Cage, and the presently in pre-production Iron Fist, Netflix is where its at for Marvel characters (at least until Civil War comes out), so why not bring other established Marvel characters to Netflix? Hawkeye for example? The man who plays Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner, has some thoughts on that. (more…)

We’re drawing closer and closer to Marvel’s next big movie release: known colloquially to the fans as Avengers 2.5 due to the copious amounts of heroes being featured, Captain America: Civil War is sure to be action-packed from start to finish.  Fans everywhere are already “picking sides” between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man, and previous trailers and promotional images have shown potential viewers which heroes are choosing to align themselves in either corner (no word yet on the preferred affiliations of Baby Groot, however).  While we are rumored to get a new Civil War trailer this week, Marvel has already hit us with new stuff to fawn over: a deluge of new character posters featuring the characters who are affiliating with Cap himself.

With every new superhero sequel, there is one thing you can always expect… the heroes will always be sportin’ brand new spanking costumes. New movie means new duds, that’s just the way it is! I mean, how else do you expect toy companies to make any money if they don’t have new character designs to market from, eh?

In the case of Captain America: Civil War, all the Avengers you know and love will surely be rockn’ new gear. All those Marvel standalone movies, their subsequent sequels, and Avengers flicks have all seen new costumes in each iteration. Why would Civil War be any different?

There’s been a multitude of set photos, videos, leaked footage and what not that has come from the Civil War production giving fans a glimpse of what new looks returning characters will have. Now some BRAND NEW leaked concept/promo art reveals an even better look at some of the updated costumes.

Head on past the page break for shots of: Captain America, Iron Man, The Winter Solider, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Black Panther.

Yup, Hawkeye Will Make it to ‘Civil War’ Too

In the comic books, Hawkeye has been one of the longest serving Avengers and a constant presence on the team since the 1960s, he was even the leader of the West Coast Avengers. In the movies though, Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner, has kind of gotten the short shrift with a small appearance in Thor, then spending the balance of The Avengers under Loki’s control, and then having to get written out of Captain America: The Winter Soldier because of scheduling. Of all the Avengers, it’s Hawkeye who could really use some extra screentime, and it looks like he’s going to get it as the archer is joining the swelling ranks of Captain America: Civil War.

You don’t want to be the one who replaces the legend, you want to be the one who comes after that.

I realize now that I wasted $4 on Jeff Lemire and Ramon Perez’ take on Hawkeye. Not because the book is bad or because Lemire and Perez aren’t talented, but because I’m just not ready for Clint and Kate to have an all-new adventure. Especially since Matt Fraction and David Aja haven’t yet concluded the old one. (more…)

We all know that some of the worst movie spoilers end up coming from the very toys that movie ‘s producers are hoping will sell like crazy. This time around, while we are seeing the new and improved Avengers Age of Utron uniforms, there’s nothing that we haven’t seen in the trailer. It’s just a much closer look.

Hot Toys recently revealed its incredible new line of Avengers: Age of Ultron figures at the Toy Soul Convention in Hong Kong. These toys might set you back a pretty penny, but the detail is beyond incredible verging on incredi-balls. Yes, I went there, you might not agree, but once you’ve laid your eyes on these your collector’s soul is going to start beating very fast. (more…)

HAWKEYE

For a guy who was considered as getting short-changed in ‘The Avengers,’ Jeremy Renner gets to be as talkative as his costars. Mark Ruffalo wants an “environmentally themed” Hulk film, Chris Evans might/might not quit acting, Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t signed on for ‘Iron Man 4,’ Chris Hemsworth will hang up his hammer after the contract, and everyone but Scarlett Johansson is gunning for a ‘Black Widow’ movie. With less screen time than his pals, Renner’s Hawkeye played the quiet assassin on both teams. And he’s been vocal about his character ever since. From rumors of leaving the franchise, to being disenchanted with his initial role, Renner’s been a Chatty Cathy from jump. And today we hear that he’s gunning for even less screen time for Hawkeye. So to speak. (more…)
