Jeremey Renner was talking with MTV Splash and spilled a little about his role as Hawkeye in The Avengers and his costume, and relationships:
“I think it’s going to be a little more reality-based. You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]’s character [in ‘Iron Man 2’], it’s going to be more of a uniform . . . and not a big purple, comics sort of thing. That’s why I think it’s more palatable to audiences – there’s almost a sense of reality to these superheroes. That’s what makes it interesting to me, anyway.”
He also says Black Widow and Hawkeye have a “relationship [that] is still to be discovered”, which could really mean anything from they’re lovers to they share one thirty-second scene together.
Has Renner SEEN what the comic book version of Widow wears? Yeah Scarlett didn’t wear the skin tight spandex catsuit that widow does in the books, but the form fitting black outfit and flowing red locks made her look the part rather well.
I don’t expect to see the spandex version of Hawkeye’s costume in The Avengers, but I don’t doubt for a second that he will be wearing purple, even if it is a darker purple, just to tie the new look of the character in with the theme. And I do like that they are not jumping right into the relationship between Hawkeye and Widow just yet. That way after The Avengers is done, they can do a Hawkeye spinoff film and Widow can be in that.

He needs to not worry about selling an outfit versus selling a Bow and Arrow as a viable weapon amoung super powered beings.
I hope he wears purple and wears a mask
They could give him a uniform very similar to what the Ultimate version of Hawkeye wears which I think would make a little more sense than the classic costume.
I would go with that, it has a more tactical feel to it and not so cartoony. And it can have a dark purple tint to it and would still look slick.
Love that Renner is Hawkeye! LOVE IT!
But yeah, your gonna wear purple bro, like it or not
