Marvel’s Avengers has announced that Clint Barton, or Hawkeye, would receive a new suit identical to the one he wore in the most recent episode.
The Disney+ show Hawkeye, the most recent endeavor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has already had content from the show incorporated into the action role-playing game Marvel’s Avengers. Clint Barton, one of the heroes known as Hawkeye, receives a new skin in the most recent Marvel’s Avengers content update, which matches the attire he wore in the season finale of Hawkeye.
Adding clothes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is nothing new for the Avengers of Marvel. For example, Natasha Romanoff’s white suit from the 2021 film Black Widow was introduced to Marvel’s Avengers almost immediately after the film’s release. Although Black Widow was one of the original characters in Marvel’s Avengers, fans demanded that Square Enix include more faithful clothes to the MCU films. Since then, movie-accurate clothes have been added to the wardrobes of characters like Black Panther, Thor, and even Spider-Man. Hawkeye, played by Clint Barton, has now joined the club.
Marvel’s Avengers revealed on Twitter that Clint would be getting a new wardrobe to match his MCU counterpart in honour of the season finale of Marvel’s Hawkeye show showing on Disney+. The black and purple clothing is based on Clint’s new suit, which he receives from his colleagues in Hawkeye episode six, where he faces the Tracksuit Mafia, Kingpin, and others with his protege Kate Bishop. Beginning December 23, the new outfit will be available in Marvel’s Avengers marketplace.
Things have gotten complicated. 🏹

Though it may seem a little out of place for Marvel’s Avengers to capitalize on Hawkeye’s ending so soon after its release, the game and the MCU have collaborated on new content since the game’s inception. During the marketing lead-up to the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the addition of Natasha Romanoff, the addition of Spider-Man to Marvel’s Avengers, and outfits from the Web-previous Slinger’s films were all added. Square Enix has also stated that numerous heroes’ base clothes were inspired by those seen in the movies, including Spider-Man and Black Panther.
Although these movie-accurate skins do not influence Marvel’s Avengers gameplay, they can be useful for players who want to relive or recreate scenes from the movies or books. Players like getting to play as the MCU versions of these heroes, whether recreating the iconic “Spider-Man pointing” meme utilizing the new skins. As Marvel’s Avengers enters its second year, fans eagerly anticipate the next hero’s arrival to join the game’s roster.
Marvel’s Avengers is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One S, PC, and Google Stadia.
