New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Concept Art Reveals Hawkeye Head Gear
Hawkeye is one our favorite non-mutant superheroes fighting with the Avengers since the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, it has been revealed that (spoilers!) the archer has a family he fights to protect. Judging by the events, it would be reasonable to give our hero a mask to protect his identity as well.Advertisement
In the comics, Marvel fans are familiar with his purple costume and mask with a glamorous H covering his face. However, to avoid Hawkeye looking like a cartoon character in the movie, the studio designed a tactical black suit. If ever Marvel decided to cover his identity, what would the mask look like?
Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we came across a concept art featuring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye with a tactical mask. The artwork is by Andy Park, and the idea of his tweaked suit was actually considered in Captain America: Civil War. Unfortunately, the design was dropped by the studio for reasons unknown.
In the Twitter post below, you can see Hawkeye wearing a mask and eyewear matching his redhead. But that’s not all. Park also did an artwork for Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, featuring a simple headband and the same suit.
While it’s unfortunate their costumes were skipped for Captain America: Civil War, it’s possible that we can expect them in Avengers: Infinity War.
In other Marvel Cinematic Universe news, the Thor: Ragnarok storyline has been teased to adapt the Planet Hulk plot.
