Cameras continue to roll on the untitled fourth Avengers movie and new photos from the set have arrived online that may have confirmed a little twist for one of the returning characters. Potential spoilers ahead.
The new photos show star Jeremy Renner walking to set and while only part of his costume is visible, it’s a a crucial detail that has been revealed. The boots that Renner is wearing are a near perfect match for the hero Ronin in Marvel Comics, an identity that Renner’s character Hawkeye briefly took on following the events of the “Civil War” comic book storyline.
Given that Captain America: Civil War would have been the last entry in the MCU that Renner appeared in before the Avengers films, it makes sense why he’d be suiting up in a different costume. Check out the photos below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments!
