Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye has great talents as an archer, but as a hairstylist? Not so much.
The actor teased his character’s rad new haircut from the set of Avengers: Infinity War via Instagram, and it’s a drastic departure from the plain hairstyles we’ve seen from Dad Archer in the past. The cropped shot features the back of Hawkeye’s head, and it looks like some kind of narrow, stubby rat-tail running down his neck. It’s probably something closer to a mohawk on the top and front, but it’s still dangerously close to being “business in the front, party in the back.”
Compared to the dope new undercuts on Thor and Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok and Captain America’s sweet new beard, this new mohawk-mullet hybrid seems a bit odd. But keep in mind that we haven’t seen the rest of it just yet; it could look awesome, but it also might not.
Check out a tease of the new haircut right here:
Chances are, since the events of Captain America: Civil War — during which Hawkeye was Team Cap — Clint Barton has been on the run much like Cap. A badass new mohawk could be just the rugged look that the character needs for his off-the-grid phase going into Infinity War.
Hawkeye will be far from the only character with a drastic new look going into Infinity War.
