In The Avengers, Jeremy Renner plays Clint Barton aka. Hawkeye. He is an expert marksman and hand-to-hand fighter who is able to snipe any target from huge distances using his signature bow and quiver full of trick arrows. In his dangerous lifestyle as a superhero, it would be far more practical to have sleeves.

With aliens flying around and masses of debris and explosions across the battlefield, Hawkeye would have majorly benefited from some sleeves. At one point in the film, he is thrown through a window and is left battered and cut up from the broken glass. That issue would have been easily resolved with a little more protection.

In the later movies, his costume evolves to cover his arms, however, in The Avengers, audiences are left wondering why his tough leather shirt could not be extended to his wrists. Since Hawkeye uses a bow and arrow, you would think that keeping his arms protected would be a big priority.

If you have clicked on here, get ready to be bored. I'm just a 20 year old white male who has a (probably) unhealthy obsession with pop culture Film and TV. Handy in a trivia game but not much else. My parents were never murdered, I'm not avenging my dead wife. Just plain, old sat at a computer with a head full of knowledge I mostly don't use I was born and raised in the Black Country near Birmingham, England however am now living in Manchester, England after I moved here two years ago. I currently attend the University of Salford, studying Broadcast Journalism. That's it really. Told you there was nothing special. If you're really that desperate for something to do, follow me on socials. Yes, I do like that ego boost.
