Black Widow and Hawkeye costumes from Avengers: Age of Ultron on display...

Tonight is the Hollywood premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, so it seems timely to showcase Scarlett Johansson's new 'Black Widow' costume from the movie sequel, along with another look at Jeremy Renner's updated 'Hawkeye' costume.

Also included within this costume exhibit at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema on April 9, 2015, was this impressive actual-size 'Hulkbuster' fist built by custom prop builders Legacy Effects. For a closer look at the cool Iron Man Hulkbuster armour, be sure to check out the scale model also on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema, and if you're a fan of the armoured Avenger take a look at all these Iron Man suits of armour from the Marvel movies.

Oscar-winning Designer Alexandra Byrne was responsible for updating the superhero looks of the movie, including Scarlett Johassson's 'Natasha Romanoff' aka Black Widow.

From the looks of things, her suit has been souped up with glowing piping and enhanced 'Widow's Bite' gauntlets for the Russian super-spy to combat the robotic forces of the artificial intelligence, Ultron.

When he's not starring in The Bourne and Mission: Impossible movie franchises, Jeremy Renner is the sharp-shooting Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a bow and arrow, Hawkeye, and for this second Avengers movie the archer receives an updated look. This longer overcoat is a nice homage to the comic book carnival tunic costume.

If you like these cool Marvel Cinematic Universe outfits, be sure to also check out these original Thor and Nick Fury movie costumes on display, plus Captain America's new-look costume from Avengers: Age of Ultron.

I can't wait to see the movie and hopefully more of these fantastic costumes and props up close in the future.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Thor and Nick Fury movie costumes on display...

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Earth's Mightiest Heroes assemble once again, along with a few new faces, to fight an evil artificial intelligence hell bent on eradicating humankind. To help promote the release of the Avengers sequel, the ArcLight Pasadena cinema had these original 'Thor' and 'Nick Fury' film costumes, plus Captain America's broken shield prop on display on April 10, 2015.

I believe this shattered Captain America shield prop was also on display last San Diego Comic-Con, but the interesting thing is that the super-soldier's shield is made of Vibranium and almost indestructible. Hopefully this will mean that we'll get to see the African nation of Wakanda and maybe a glimpse of the 'Black Panther' in this movie, as that is the main source of Vibranium in the Marvel Comics universe at least.

Alexandra Byrne is the Oscar-winning Costume Designer on Avengers: Age of Ultron and she was also designer on the first Thor and Avengers movies, plus you can see her costumes in Guardians of the Galaxy (plus she is working on the forthcoming Marvel movie adaptation of Dr. Strange).

It was hard to get great shots with the lighting and reflective case, but hopefully these images show the detail of the God of Thunder's battle armour.

If you like this heroic costume worn by Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the Avengers sequel, be sure check out more original Asgardian costumes from Thor: The Dark World worn by the likes of 'Loki', 'Lady Sif', 'Fandral', 'Volstagg', 'Odin', 'Frigga' and even 'Jane Foster'.

Super-spy Nick Fury's all-black costume isn't that interesting compared to the colourful outfits worn by the superheroes in the movie, but it's still cool to see in person and an easy look to replicate and very Shaft-esque. Plus it's nice to see Samuel L. Jackson rocking the eye-patch again after the events of Captain America: The Winter Solider and the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. when HYDRA reared its many ugly heads.

If you like these outfits, be sure to check out Hawkeye and Captain America's new looks for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and stay tuned for a closer look at Scarlett Johansson's updated Black Widow costume.
