The San Diego Comic-Con kicks off today, but Marvel already has fans pumped for next year after the studio released new concept art posters (embedded below) for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Ant Man” late last night.
One poster features Iron Man in his new armor squaring off against what looks to be an Ultron drone, while the other "Avengers" image shows Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch also battling the drones. Fans have already gotten a glimpse at what the Scarlet Witch will look like, but this concept art shows her in action for the first time. And Iron Man is an obvious mainstay of the Marvel Universe, but this time he’s sporting some brand new armor that is an upgrade from the suit in “Iron Man 3.”
Meanwhile, the “Ant Man” one features a new look at the costume that Paul Rudd will be sporting in the film. Despite the directing controversy, “Ant Man” remains one of Marvel’s most anticipated films.
For those attending the convention, these posters are available at Marvel’s booth, #2329. The posters are expected to go fast, so you don’t want to be admiring the sights of the Con before you decide to stroll over to the booth late in the day. But don’t worry, Marvel most likely has plenty more up its sleeve for the show.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” again stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlet Johannson as Black Widow, Chris Evans as Captain America and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk. These Marvel regulars will be joined by newcomers Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and James Spader as Ultron.
“Ant Man” stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. There is no word yet on whether or not Rudd’s Ant Man character will eventually make his way into the world of the Avengers, but since the character was a founding member of the team in the comics, fans shouldn’t be shocked to see an appearance in “Age of Ultron” or perhaps a much bigger role in “Avengers 3.”
"Avengers: Age of Ultron” hits theaters on May 1, 2015. “Ant Man” will be out on July 17, 2015.
