I like the casting choice of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in the upcoming Avengers movie (he also made a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in Thor. He is a great actor and has the ability to portray that rebellious streak that is so important to the character. My one reservation is the fact that they decided to go with his Ultimate costume rather than the one he wears in the mainstream Marvel universe. I realize the classic purple togs and mask might be more difficult to translate into live action, but the ultimate look is just so boring and generic. I would have liked for them to at least try to find some sort of happy medium between the two. Oh well, it's a small complaint and I am sure that it won't be enough to dampen my enjoyment of the film, which is looking epic so far from the filming footage that has been released.
