Since the start of SDCC 2014, we have seen two amazing posters a day featuring the members of the Avengers fighting an army of Ultrons in the highly anticipated sequel.
The first posters released on Wednesday showcased Iron Man and Scarlet Witch, battling a staggering amount of Ultron units, which is reminiscent of Kurt Busiek and George Perez’ Avengers storyline ‘Ultron Unlimited’ which saw the Avengers take on an army of Ultrons, who had taken over a European country.
While it’s clear that Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn’t seem to be based on any one Ultron storyline, it does seem to be taking some of the best parts of the various stories and mashing them together to bring us what could possibly be the best Ultron vs Avengers storyline ever. Of course, that might be getting ahead of ourselves a bit, but we can’t help but get excited by these posters.
Each poster released pictured not only the featured character, but also a small tease of the other parts of the poster, which started to give us an idea of this massive concept art poster early on. The next two posters released on Thursday featured Captain America and Black Widow, both sporting slightly new costumes for the sequel, which we’ve seen bits and pieces of from the set.
Hawkeye and Quicksilver joined the team on Friday, which offered a cool look at Quicksilver’s powers and displayed just how big and difficult this battle looks to be. Of course, the Quicksilver poster also offered us our very first official image of the Vision, who will be played by Paul Bettany in an upgraded role from his previous stint as the AI butler JARVIS. The brief image of Vision doesn’t show us much detail, but it is more than enough to get us excited.
Finally the heavy hitters of the team were revealed this morning, as Thor and Hulk completed the sought after poster. Some theorized that the powerhouses of the team were going to appear last early on, just based on the sheer mayhem of the poster as it was slowly revealed. With the other Avengers apparently having a rough time dealing with the Ultron horde, we assumed Hulk and Thor would be making quick work of their adversaries, but that isn’t really the case.
This poster not only kept Avengers: Age of Ultron on everyone’s lips in anticipation of the Marvel Studios panel today in Hall H, but it offered an interesting action piece from the film that looks to top the final battle we saw in The Avengers against the Chitauri. While it is still early to tell, hopefully we can expect to see a little bit more from Marvel Studios Hall H presentation.
