Since the first appearance of Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have seen some cool and different types of gear, uniform, and gadgets that he has used in Thor, Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War. When Avengers: Infinity War comes out in April, expect Hawkeye to be sporting some cool and new gear! Comicbook sat down with Marvel Studios’ Prop Master, Russell Bobbitt, one of the Infinity War writers, Stephen McFeely, and the Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe, during their set visit.
Bobbitt shared some details regarding the wardrobe of Hawkeye:
“Hawkeye is getting a lot of cool new stuff! We’re developing a lot of interesting stuff for him. All in the sort of, bow related, but some new gadgets he has in addition to the bow.”
Bobbitt also empathizes that Hawkeye is “totally [in] there” and “a part of the world [in Infinity War]!” One of the Infinity War writers, Stephen McFeely, compares the Hawkeye’s situation in the film to the TV show, Nashville.
“It’s Nashville, so everyone’s in a different bubble. Some bubbles come together and break apart, [and] some bubbles come together for the third act. That kind of stuff.”
It sounds like we will be in for a possible emotional story arc for Hawkeye in Infinity War. Co-director Joe Russo gave more hints on what kind road that Hawkeye may take.
“Hawkeye coming out of Civil War is in the same position that the Cap and Falcon are in at the end of that movie [as well as] Ant-Man. And coming into this movie, the characters who are on Cap’s side coming out of Civil War, some made certain decisions and others made other decisions that led to different paths and them dealing with oversight in this movie [Infinity War] in a different way. So, Hawkeye’s on his own journey in this movie.”
Co-director, Anthony Russo, also added that Hawkeye is definitely going to react after the events of Civil War.
“Yeah, he has a unique reaction to the Civil War situation that puts him in a special spot this film.”
Despite little marketing for Hawkeye for the newest Avengers film, expect that he will make an impact during Infinity War.
