With the year halfway over, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War has set the bar high for every other blockbuster to come in 2016. The superhero adventure has already taken in $404 million at the domestic box office, and over $1.1 billion worldwide. This movie kicked off Phase Three in a huge way, featuring almost every Marvel superhero that has been established in the MCU thus far, but today we have new artwork that shows how two heroes' costumes almost looked much differently.
Concept artist Andy Park shared early designs for both Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) on Twitter. There are two versions of the costumes for each character, which are both roughly the same, although for Scarlet Witch, one image features the character wearing a headband. In the alternate version for Hawkeye's costume, this archer is seen sporting a mask that covers almost his entire head, which would have been a much different look for him.
Of course, these early designs never made it through to the production, but it's still interesting to see what costumes were considered early on in the process. While Andy Park may not be a household name to most, fans who follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe will certainly recognize his work. The artist started his career with Marvel in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, then went on to work on The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, along with the TV shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
While we don't know for sure, since the cast hasn't been confirmed, it is believed that both Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye will return for both Infinity War movies. Production is scheduled to begin this November on both movies, which will shoot back to back. While we wait for more on these new movies, check out the Captain America: Civil War concept art below.
