“Avengers” Set Photos Tease Character Change

Filming is still very much underway on the untitled fourth “The Avengers” movie and some new snaps from the set have confirmed that one of the key characters is undergoing a superhero identity change.

POTENTIAL MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD

The new photos show star Jeremy Renner walking to set with some of his costume visible – that costume being different from his usual Hawkeye garb and one very akin to the hero of Ronin from the Marvel comics.

In the comics, Hawkeye took on the Ronin identity following the events of ‘Civil War’ so its appearance makes sense here. ‘Civil War’ is the last entry in the MCU that Renner appeared in before the two new “Avengers” films.

Shooting on the fourth “Avengers” is continuing ahead of a release in May 2019.
