Get ready for a non-stop barrage of marketing content all the way till this sequel comes out. Disney-Marvel have certainly proved themselves as relentless when it comes to marketing, so we’re in for a plethora of material. To start whetting those appetites, we’ve got a bunch of images from arguably their most anticipated upcoming film, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some of these you may have seen before, some you may have not, but they’re all great. The first image is the closest an official image has come to depicting the whole crew, with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Tony Stark (Robert Downey. Jr) and James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) all chilling around a living room. If you scroll down you’ll see the always-lovely-on-the-eyes Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, respectively), and a behind the scenes shot with writer-director Joss Whedon.
In case you’re unaware, The Avengers: Age of Ultron will see our team of heroes going up against Ultron (James Spader), a drone created by Tony Stark. To make this AI a little more human, he infuses Ultron with pieces of his very own personality. As you can expect, this doesn’t exactly work out according to plan. Chris Hemsworth explained to EW, “It’s not the good version that could’ve come from [Stark’s] intellect and personality … It’s the bad son.”
Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released in the U.S. on May 1, 2015.
