Avengers: Age of Ultron

Marvel gave away concept art posters of the characters of Age of Ultron, which came together in to one giant image

Age of Ultron The Avengers certainly will have their hands full when they go up against Ultron next year.  With the loss of S.H.I.E.L.D.,, it’s a good thing they picked up a few new friends, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and The Vision.

The film’s panel had almost the entire cast. Scarlet Johansson was not on hand, due to impending birth of her first child, and Director/Geek God Joss Whedon could not attend since he was recovering from knee surgery in London.

The panel was highlighted by a clip from the upcoming film, where the Avengers have gathered, off duty, for a party at the Avengers Tower.  All is fun and games, until suddenly an old armor of Tony’s crashes the party, and Ultron is revealed to be in control.  There’s only one path to peace,“ Ultron announces. ”Your extinction.” The clip was followed with a montage of action from the film.

Oh and then Josh Brolin showed up, wearing the Infinity Gauntlet.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theaters May 1, 2015.
