Marvel reveals scrapped Hawkeye costume for Avengers: Endgame


Long before Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) became Ronin in Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Studios visual development team was playing around with all kinds of other costume ideas. Longtime Marvel artist Andy Park has now posted one of those ideas, showing the Archer in an updated high-tech suit, a far cry from the Ronin suit he donned in the blockbuster. On Monday night, Park shared the concept art on his Instagram.

“Here’s a Hawkeye I made for Infinity War / Endgame,” Park shared with the image. “The story was fluctuating and they wanted to see an option of him in a more high-tech armored look (before landing on Ronin Road). I did the same for Black Widow for her. End of Game see. That one got into the movie. “

You can see the concept art below.

Interestingly enough, Clint’s real Endgame costume – the ninja-like piece he wore as Ronin – became a central part of the story of the character’s new Disney + series. In the series, an auctioneer puts the costume up for auction as various members of New York’s seedy underbelly bid on it.

“What’s interesting too, and we’ve never talked about it before, is that Clint obviously assumes Ronin’s identity as a way to distance himself from what he’s doing. When he’s going around the world in punishing [people]”says Joe Russo in the home press release of End of Game.

“Yes,” Russo adds. “He’s assuming a new identity. And I would say as the movie progresses that the two identities start to merge and he’s Ronin and Hawkeye. He’s got the bow.”

The first two episodes of Hawk Eye are now broadcast on Disney +.
