Now that we’re only a few months away from the release of Avengers: Endgame, material from upcoming merchandise is starting to leak, thereby giving us some new hints at the film’s plot, which is otherwise being kept tightly under wraps. And alongside those potentially revealing LEGO set titles, we now have some new promo images that tease a few of the revamped looks we’ll be seeing for our heroes.
The following five pieces of art – likely to be used on T-shirts, posters, etc. – showcase Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Chris Evans’ Captain America, Josh Brolin’s Thanos and not one but two separate images of Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton. These might be of the most interest to fans, as they give us a pretty good look at his new costume that makes clear his transition from Hawkeye to Ronin.
The Black Widow pic is interesting as well, as it’s the latest bit of evidence that tells us Natasha will return to her redheaded appearance, after switching to blonde in Avengers: Infinity War. Likewise, the Cap image features the Sentinel of Liberty in his classic outfit and helmet. Meanwhile, the Thanos piece is particularly impressive as the Mad Titan cuts a mean, intimidating figure in his full golden armor. Which means he must take it off his scarecrow at some point, presumably so he can have a rematch with the Avengers.
Back to the former agent Barton for a moment, though, and Renner’s avenging archer was absent for Infinity War but the first Endgame trailer revealed that he’ll be a very different person when he returns. Complete with a mohawk and newfound prowess with a sword, Clint has become Ronin. Fans are theorizing that he lost his family in the Snap, hence his darker attitude and his return to superhero’ing, but that remains as speculation for now. Regardless, we’ll surely find out for certain when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
