New Marvel's Avengers Hawkeye Skin Available Soon

The latest Marvel’s Avengers skin is a new Hawkeye skin, and it’s hitting the in-game shop on May 13.

The new Marvel’s Avengers Hawkeye skin is based on Hawkeye’s Avengers Endgame outfit, though “based on” is key here.

Crystal Dynamics took a few liberties with the design, and while we think it looks amazing, it’s got some fans upset.

The primary issue is Clint’s baldness, though the reason behind it isn’t so simple on either side.

On the fan side, some are upset by the developers not taking enough liberty and adding what they call a boring design.

Others point out there should be options to change character appearances, though that gets trickier.

One fan rightly said the developers might have strict guidelines to follow regarding how they can reproduce character and actor likenesses.

Naturally, developers are hardly likely to share the legal details of business deals, so it’s something we’ll never know for sure.

It would explain not just bald Hawkeye, though, but also why the Black Widow Endgame skin hairstyle is different and other minor deviations from the source material.
