This summer begins the true lead-in to next summer’s epic superhero movie event, The Avengers. Now that Thor and Captain America are almost upon us, and The Avengers is already in production, details regarding these Marvel movies are starting to get nailed down.

CinemaCon is happening right now, and our pal Ed Douglas from Coming Soon was on hand for the Disney panel, which focused on their takeover of Marvel Movie distribution next year. The panel included a few Avengers tidbits – including a look at concept art for Hawkeye’s (Jeremy Renner) Marvel Movie Universe costume.

Disney showed a sizzle reel during the panel that included concept art of Renner in the Hawkeye costume. As Coming Soon describes it:

Basically, Hawkeye’s costume is going to be very similar to the Ultimates version of the character and what he looks like on the cover to the left. In the concept art, we see Renner wearing similar dark glasses and a leather outfit with a matching over-the-shoulder leather quill for his arrows, only the movie version of Hawkeye has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo emblazoned on it to show his government allegiances. His precision bow is much like the one used by archers who do it for sports and hunting, which again, is also much like the Ultimates Hawkeye.

As I said, this pretty much matches what we’ve already heard about movie Hawkeye, and Renner himself hinted at the costume’s design soon after he was initially cast in the role.

I feel like this should go without saying, but I don’t think anybody should be sad that they’re using the Ultimate Universe Version of Hawkeye over the 616 version. I mean, did anybody really want to see Jeremy Renner running around in a purple and blue suit wearing a tunic? Well, obviously the guy who designed this piece of fan art did, but still…

Thor will be in theaters on May 6th, 2011.

The Avengers will be in theaters a year later on May 4th, 2012.
