IS RENNER DONNING PURPLE TIGHTS FOR AVENGERS???




The recent news that The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner spoke with Marvel Studios about possibly portraying Hawkeye in Thor and/or The Avengers was met with excitement by many in the fan community. In a recent interview with SuperHeroHype, Renner said that he was sold on the idea of playing Hawkeye because Clint Barton is "just a man with a high skill set," rather than a hero with extraordinary powers. However, for those fans excited by the prospect of seeing the classic Hawkeye costume on film, prepare to be disappointed.
Renner said that the film version of Hawkeye will not bare much of a resemblance to the comic book version: "...it's going to be modernized, it's not going to be the guy with the big purple [mask], it's not going to be a guy in tights. It's going to be a guy in sunglasses and a vest. He's going to be more modernized and I'm gonna say, 'A cooler-looking version' and not the big weird costume he had on. I don't think they're going that route."

RENNER is no stranger to action movies, having appeared in SWAT and HURT LOCKER as well as 28 WEEKS LATER, but how will he do as a spandex clad superhero.........only time will tell, IF HE GETS CAST. I think it's all still up in the air, and no definite cast has been sorted for AVENGERS and last I heard HAWKEYE may not even appear in THOR.

MARVEL (and/or DISNEY) make your minds up. Bite the bullet and make AVENGER as awesome as it deserves!!!
