Marvel has released a new, official one-sheet for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The titular villain’s sentries are raining down upon our superheroes as they prepare for the fight of their (and our) lives. The most familiar faces are front and center while newcomers Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and, if you look into the sun, Vision (Paul Bettany) also appear.
The poster lists a few names we did not know (for sure) would be present in the AVENGERS sequel. Hayley Atwell, Anthony Mackie, and Idris Elba (who spoiled his involvement a few months back) are all listed among the cast. Respectively, they play Agent Peggy Carter, Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon, and Heimdall in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s also worth noting that renowned composer Danny Elfman is credited for having provided music in addition to Brian Tyler’s score.
Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is in theaters May 1.
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.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Patricia Whitcher, Stan Lee and Jon Favreau serve as executive producers.
