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.
Jeremy Renner took to Twitter today to debut his new Hawkeye costume for Captain America: Civil War. He previously announced this weekend at Wizard World Chicago that, of all his Hawkeye get-ups, this latest one is his favorite. Take a peek and judge for yourself! (more…)
While Captain America: Civil War shooting continues in Atlanta Ga. Jeremy Renner is keeping himself amused and in touch with fans through twitter. Over the weekend he visited Six Flags over Georgia and tweeted out a new promotional piece which asks us that important Civil War question, “What side are you on?” (more…)
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. (more…)
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…)
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…)
One of the great successes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier is that it managed to continue to build the Marvel Cinematic Universe without really drawing attention to it. Instead, it managed to expand the scope of the Marvel-related films, introduce new characters familiar to comic book readers, and challenged the characters we already had met with a shocking truth the upset everything they thought they knew. In essence, Winter Soldier continued building the world by essentially destroying a pretty big piece of it. Delivering such a gobsmack was a big risk that turned into an even bigger reward for Cap 2 directors Anthony and Joe Russo, whose success with the film was evident in the way that Marvel awarded them the helm for Captain America 3 before The Winter Soldier even opened last April. In a new interview, the Brothers Russo made it clear that they’re not about to rest on the laurels, and are prepping another big game change for the MCU in part 3. (more…)

Clint Barton made his first comic book appearance as Hawkeye, playing a reluctant villain in Tales Of Suspense back in 1964. He met the Black Widow and together they tried to steal some tech from Tony Stark, but Clint would soon decide against the criminal life and go straight. A year later, he joined the Avengers and eventually commanded his own team of West Coast Avengers. Though he never made it to the top shelf in the aisle, he was always prominent among ace cards like Captain America and Thor. His cinematic debut was a cameo in ‘Thor’ as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent played by Jeremy Renner. Renner reprised the role in the incredible blockbuster hit ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ and that was the last we saw of Hawkeye. We’re planning on seeing him again in ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron,’ but will it stop there until ‘Avengers 3?’ Renner doesn’t think so. (more…)
