New Looks for Hawkeye and Captain America in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
By Amy Ratcliffe on April 1, 2014
Filming has been underway for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and no matter how tightly Marvel tries to keep things under wraps, fans are bound to capture some set pictures. They’d have to enclose the shooting locations inside a high wall to prevent leaks, and even if they’re tempted, it’s probably not cost effective. Anyway, a couple of the set photos feature Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Chris Evans’ Captain America in some fancy new costumes.
Given that we’ve seen alterations for superhero outfits in sequels such as Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2, and the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the tweaks aren’t entirely out of nowhere. But, since Hawkeye’s hero look has been so subtle in past Marvel films, I’m pleasantly surprised to see a more comic book-like style for him in Age of Ultron. Check out this photo from The Nerd Truth:
The coat with dark purple touches could just be a momentary addition to his existing non-costume, but I hope he wears it all the time.
Captain America’s threads get an update, too. Earth Prime Weekly shared the below photo. Though it doesn’t appear to be hugely different from The Winter Soldier costume, the new ensemble means we could see fresh looks for the rest of the team.
