Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming to San Diego Comic-Con in a big way this week. As we learned back in June, the blockbuster's entire cast will be present in Hall H during the big Marvel Studios panel on Saturday, and it's highly likely that they will be showing off some footage from the film as well. But that's not all, as the studio has just released two brand new pieces of concept art to coincide with the geektacular event.
Debuted on Marvel's official homepage, the new pieces give us closer looks at both Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), who you can see above, as well as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) from Avengers 2. As you can see, the heroes are in the midst of battling a huge robot army, and things don't look like they are going too well.
While these two posters are certainly cool, I'm willing to bet that they wind up just being two pieces of a much bigger puzzle. While Iron Man is pretty much alone in his design, looking closely at the bottom of the Scarlet Witch artwork you can see what appear to be two of of Hawkeye's arrows. Marvel says that these are only the first two pieces of Comic-Con concept art to come out this week, and I have a feeling that when all is said and done all of them will be able to connect together and form one GIANT piece, similar to what the studio did at Comic-Con 2011 before the release of the first Avengers movie:
You can be sure that we will be delivering you each piece of concept art as its revealed, so stay tuned for the rest of the week!
The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is both written and directed by Joss Whedon, will once again be reuniting stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner, while introducing new stars James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Thomas Kretschmann, and Paul Bettany. Look for it in theaters on May 1, 2015.
