Well, isn't this just a nice little surprise. This evening, Marvel have gone and dropped the first official, full poster for the highly-anticipated The Avengers: Age of Ultron and it's pretty dang awesome if I do say so myself.
The gang is all here in the colorful new one-sheet (debuted by The Avengers Twitter account) and, well, I, for one, love it. It's PACKED full of heroes, villains and just awesomeness. Yep, even The Vision's there... albeit if you still can't exactly see him. However, the biggest reveal here has to be the fact that Anthony Mackie's name is listed on the poster so despite his denials for the past several months, it seems as though he'll be making an appearance in the sequel as Falcon. Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba and Stellan Skarsgard are all listed too. However, those were a little less surprising.
From what we've seen so far, the sequel looks amazing and action packed and yet another smash hit at the box-office, for Marvel, just like its predecessor - the biggest and, arguably, best of their films to release. It's safe to say that I'm VERY excited for this, even more so after feasting my eyes on this gem of a poster. Bring it on.
Here's the films official synopsis:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
