Midtown Comics and Madame Tussauds New York
Just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his first appearance in a Marvel Comic, Midtown Comics will be partnering with Madame Tussauds New York to unveil Jeremy Renner’s wax figure as Marvel Comics superhero Hawkeye on Thursday, October 9th at 12:30 p.m. at New York Comic Con, Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Midtown Comics’ booth #2036.
Madame Tussauds artists worked tirelessly to create the spot-on wax figure of Hawkeye, which is making its U.S. debut at this year’s NYCC! The figure is modeled after the master archer as he appears in the 2012 box-office hit The Avengers. Photo ops are available all weekend long.
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye will go on display at Madame Tussauds New York starting October 13th. You won’t want to miss this character in action in next year’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron!
