A batch of alleged Avengers 4 promo art has leaked online giving us new looks at Captain Marvel, Hulk, Hawkeye, War Machine, Rocket Raccoon, Nebula, and Thanos.
A number of these designs were previously leaked in a huge team poster earlier this month. However, this new batch of leaks lets us zero in on the specific characters.
Take a look:
Captain Marvel played by Brie Larson looks like she will be in a more iconic outfit for Avengers 4 with red and blue suit with the gold trim and star. This is a huge change from set photos of Captain Marvel which show her in a green and white suit like the colors of a Kree military uniform.
The colors are obviously the biggest change in this new design, but there also appear to be some other minor changes as well. She has two stripes across her chest leading into the star instead of one. The shoulder pads also seem to have shrunk and don’t have any padding going down to her upper arm as the current Captain Marvel costume has. I definitely like this design over the current Captain Marvel outfit.
Hulk and Hawkeye
Hulk and Hawkeye definitely have brand new looks. The biggest rumor is that this new version of the Hulk will mimic Professor Hulk. This piece of concept art definitely seems to imply that. There is no real rage or anger shown on the Hulk and his costume is pretty much a full body suit with only his head, hands, and feet exposed.
What’s really interesting is that Hawkeye is still being referred to as Hawkeye. Many believed Clint Barton would take on the Ronin persona for Avengers 4. He’s definitely got a new bow, this one looks like a longbow, although don’t quote me on that. He does have the Ronin style shinpads which we saw in leaked set photos. His outfit definitely has a more armored look and he also appears to have a belt that is holding some kind of canister.
War Machine, Rocket Raccoon, and Nebula
War Machine has extremely different look. It’s big and bulky. It almost has a Transformers vibe. I’m waiting for him to turn into an actual jet and shout, “All Hail Megatron.” The suit still has the mounted gun on the shoulder, although this one appears to fire directly over his head. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s on a swivel. His arm canons appear to have been vastly upgraded. But the chest piece is really what stands out. Could it be an extra layer to prevent energy attacks from taking out the arc reactor.
Rocket appears unchanged minus the color scheme. And Nebula looks largely unaltered. The biggest thing is she doesn’t appear to be wearing a jacket any more and her cybernetic arm is fully exposed.
Finally, we get another look at Thanos. This concept art isn’t new and we’ve seen the image before when it was released earlier this month. This is just a better look at it. Once again, Thanos is back in his full battle armor regalia and he’s also wearing a sword. It makes sense given he was almost killed by Thor. He wouldn’t want to take any more chances when it comes to facing down the Avengers and it looks like he’s going to be fully prepared for them.
The biggest thing to note is the Infinity Gauntlet appears to be fully functional. There is no damage to it. If you recall, the gauntlet appeared to crumple up after Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of all living life in the universe. Could he have repaired it, or is he using a fake to trick the Avengers?
What do you make of these new leaked pieces of concept art? What stands out to you?
