Am I hyped for Avengers: Age of of Ultron? Oh yeah, and this poster is taking it up a level. The poster released today also represents the first time we have seen the crew all in one spot since 2012 in the first Avengers movie.
If you play favorites, you’ll notice Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are front and center in the marketing poster. Could it be subtle marketing for Captain America 3? Maybe, but more likely the Avengers is getting crowded.
The rest of the team is suited up and in the poster. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) are all heavily featured.
Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is off to the side looking like his normal badass self. New heroes are also in the poster including Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson) and Vision (Paul Bettany).
You think this is absurd? Just wait until Infinity War. The number of heroes will be absurd at that point. Hey if we need a non-stop three hour movie to fit everything in, I’m onboard. Just keep the quality.
Yes, the hype is building. Spring is almost upon us, which means the May 1 release date is just around the corner. I can’t wait.
