New promotional images for Avengers: Age of Ultron have been released which give us a better look at the heroes and main villain of the upcoming film!
The two pieces of promotional art describe, in detail, the origins of two of the new additions to the Avengers film franchise:
Ultron: “First discovered as a simple computer program hidden among the ruins of the Chitauri invasion of New York, the being known as Ultron soon completed its development into a sophisticated artificial intelligence after some experimentation by Tony Stark.
Ultron’s first shocking ultimatum upon gaining consciousness was to declare the human race its enemy. Setting out to exterminate all life on the planet, the unstable and emotional Ultron seeks to upgrade its mechanical body to an ultimate, unstoppable form.
With an army of robotic drones and the ability to enter and corrupt any computer network, Ultron will stop at nothing to see humanity wiped out.”
Vision: “Programmed by the combined geniuses of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner and imparted with the ability to fly, project intense energy beams and change the density of his form, the Vision has proved himself a worthy hero, aiding the Avengers in their struggle against the evil A.I. Ultron.”
A spliced image was also released that includes a closeup look at Vision (Paul Bettany) phasing through a metal wall and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) with two glowing, blue batons:
Finally, a high-quality still of the entire team, as seen in the trailer for the film, has been released. Among the group is South Korean actress Claudia Kim who is said to be playing Dr. Cho, a nano-biologist who plays a pivotal role to the Ultron plotline of the film:
Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in theatres on May 1, 2015!
