New photos from the set of Avengers 4 show Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner dressed as Ronin, another alias of the superhero.

In the photos we get a glimpse of Renner’s costume – namely its shin guards, which match those of Ronin – an identity that Clint Barton adopts following the events of Civil War. This ties in perfectly with the character’s arc as it currently stands, following Hawkeye’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War, where he joined Team Cap.

Having ended Civil War by being defeated and detained by Tony Stark, it makes sense that, when going rogue with Captain America, Barton would adopt a new identity.

And it’s not just Hawkeye that’s going through a change following Civil War, as Cap is sporting longer hair and a beard as he takes on the new moniker of ‘Nomad’. This identity is one that Cap adopts in the comicbooks after becoming disillusioned with the US government. This also ties in with Cap’s arc, following his negative feelings towards the Sokovia Accords and, of course, when they ganged up against his BFF, Bucky.

Still divided, the Avengers will have their work cut out for them when they finally come face-to-face with the Mad Titan, Thanos.

Avengers: Infinity War is released on April 27th, 2018 in the UK, and May 4th, 2018 in the US.

Avengers 4 will follow on April 26th, 2019 in the UK, and May 3rd, 2019 in the US.
