The first official look at the new costumes worn by the Avengers in Endgame has been revealed, courtesy of popcorn company Orville Redenbacher.
The company uploaded - and has since deleted - promo art of the movie, featuring the original Avengers - Thor, Iron Man, Captain American, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Hulk - in the new threads we can expect to see them in during the upcoming flick.
These aren't the white suits that we've seen in various merchandise leaks - though that doesn't mean they won't appear - and are more in line with what we've seen in various pieces of concept art, although with more (and new) details. There are also a few nods to the comics, and some intriguing clues as to what we can expect from each Avenger. Apart from Thor, who mostly just looks the same as usual.
Hulk's costume is one of the most eye-catching, because we're not used to seeing him wearing anything other than a ripped pair of shorts. Now he's in a tightly fitted, 'proper' superhero suit, but within the face we can also see more of Bruce Banner than ever before too.
The suit, then, can presumably stretch along with Banner when he changes into Hulk, which means it's got to be very high-tech (so likely created by either Iron Man or Shuri, or both). What's more interesting is what this means for Banner and Hulk. The development of their relationship has been fascinating to watch over the last couple of movies, and is set to take another leap forward here. Is it possible that we're going to see a take on Professor Hulk, whereby there's a 'best of both characters' approach: you get Hulk's brute strength and powers, but retain the intelligence of Banner?
Hawkeye's Ronin, But He's Still A Guy With A Bow And Arrow
The first glimpse we had of Clint Barton in this post-snap world, he was looking a little different. With an all-black costume and wielding a sword, the transformation into Ronin was complete.
That's still largely the case in this image, as we can see he very much has the Ronin hairstyle here, but it's not going to be a complete departure from Hawkeye. As the image reveals, while he might have a sword at some point, he is still just a guy with a bow and arrow. Only now he's a guy with a bow and arrow who has presumably lost his family and wants revenge.
