Jeremy Renner Says Hawkeye’s ‘Avengers’ Costume Will Be ‘Reality-Based,’ Not Classic Purple Suit

splashpage.mtv.com: As announced during this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Nick Fury, and Hulk won’t be the only characters to get the spotlight in the film. Among the new additions to the cast is “The Hurt Locker” star Jeremy Renner, who’ll play the team’s hotshot marksman, Hawkeye. MTV News caught up with Renner during the press junket for his new film “The Town,” and asked him whether we’ll see him don Hawkeye’s classic purple costume for the film, or whether we’ll get a more “Ultimates”-style take on the character.

The 10 greatest low budget sci-fi movies

www.denofgeek.com: Ideally, science fiction films require large quantities of cash. Truckloads of the stuff. Just look at the most famous examples of the genre: Metropolis, Blade Runner, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Where the horror genre requires little more than a few pence, a bottle of fake blood and a hacksaw to realise, a good sci-fi movie usually requires the building of vast sets, costumes and copious amounts of special effects.

But then, we have the subjects of this top ten list, sci-fi movies whose wealth of ideas more than makes up for their lack of financial investment…

10. Mad Max (1979)

A film so low budget its costume department could only afford one genuine leather jacket, Mad Max launched the once-stellar film career of Mel Gibson, and put Aussie director George Miller firmly on the filmmaking map.

In a post-apocalyptic future where the scarcity of petrol has hastened the collapse of society, Australia’s roads are policed by the Main Force Patrol, and Max Rockatansky (Gibson) is their finest driver. After his wife and son are mercilessly run down by a motorcycle gang, Max gets behind the wheel and roars off on a mission of revenge.

With little more than a few thousand Australian dollars and a few old cars, Miller created a bleak, thrilling movie that managed to make an estimated $100,000,000 worldwide, more than either of its sequels could rake in combined.

While only tangentially sci-fi (it’s more of a revenge thriller, it could be argued), Mad Max is a low budget, trashily enjoyable period classic, and influenced a whole generation of post-apocalyptic action films.

I really can’t wait to see Deathly Hallows, I feel like Agnes in Despicable Me when she grabs the unicorn :D, that’s part of how excited I am. It was great to see more of the first part, like scenes from Malfoy Manor and Voldie flying! I thought they weren’t going to show that, it’s a surprise to read it in the book, it should have stayed like that fro those who didn’t knew. What did you think of it?

What do you think of the Avengers? A re you waiting to see it?

What do you think of the low budget sci-fi movies? I personally like Terminator, don’t get tired of seeing it 😉
