MTV squeezed in a couple of questions about Hawkeye in The Avengers when they interviewed Jeremy Renner for The Town.
They asked him if he’ll be wearing the classic purple costume. "I think it’s going to be a little more reality-based," said Renner. "You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]’s character [in ‘Iron Man 2’], it’s going to be more of a uniform … and not a big purple, comics sort of thing… That’s why I think it’s more palatable to audiences — there’s almost a sense of reality to these superheroes. That’s what makes it interesting to me, anyway."
He was also asked about Hawkeye’s possible relationship with Black Widow. "We will [have a relationship], I think, in this one as well," he said. "We’re kind of a team, and what that relationship is, is still to be discovered."
