For years, Marvel has had the habit of seeding their movies with teases to other upcoming film projects — and it looks like this summer’s Thor is no different. Who better to go up against a demigod with a magical hammer than… an archer?!
During a presentation by Walt Disney Pictures today at the theater owners’ event CinemaCon, attendees were surprised when the House of Mouse showed a sizzle reel with footage from Marvel movies past, present and future. Amongst the moving pictures on display was new footage from “Thor,” including an eye-opening shot of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
“Basically, Hawkeye’s costume is going to be very similar to the Ultimates version of the character,” reported ComingSoon.net. “In the concept art, we see Renner wearing similar dark glasses and a leather outfit with a matching over-the-shoulder leather quill for his arrows, only the movie version of Hawkeye has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo emblazoned on it to show his government allegiances.”
Back in February, MTV News interviewed Renner on the Oscars red carpet in which the actor talked about the Avengers script and Hawkeye’s costume.
Other footage shown at CinemaCon featured Thor smashing his hammer to the ground and “causing waves of destruction,” and what is speculated to be pre-visualization animatics for “The Avengers” movie.
The footage also included a brief interview with actor Mark Ruffalo talking about his role as the Hulk in “The Avengers,” saying that his character was “definitely” going to be a hero rather than the rampaging catalyst as seen in the inaugural “Avengers” comic. (Source)
