SDCC 2014: Avengers: Age of Ultron Concept Art is Awesome!

One of the best freebies from last week’s San Diego Comic-Con was the awesome Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art given away by Marvel. The poster is composed of eight smaller posters which make up one HUGE image done by artist Ryan Meinerding. avengers on ew Last week, Marvel sent a message to fans on their webpage, Marvel.com, inviting them to visit their booth to grab hold of two posters for every day of the Comic Con to complete the image. Make sure to stop by the Marvel booth, #2329, to pick up these free posters while supplies last! These two posters are only available during Preview Night, while supplies last. Today’s posters feature artwork of Iron Man by Ryan Meinerding as well as a poster by Andy Park of Scarlet Witch. Once these two character posters are gone, then they’re gone. But maybe if you check back tomorrow, we’ll have something else in store. Maybe. Keep up with all things Marvel at SDCC by keeping your eyes on Marvel.com and following @Marvel on Twitter! ultron-full-avengers-age-of-ultron-poster If you were there everyday and dropped by the Marvel booth, congratulations! You got one heck of collectible to hang on your walls! And you’re making the rest of us envious, too. Marvel concluded its Comic Con appearance in Hall H with fans having their posters signed by the actors who make up the Avengers minus Robert Downey, Jr., and Scarlet Johannson. We’re now set to show you each of the posters and the full image with descriptions from David Harris (Razor) of Lightly Buzzed: Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 7 First up, we have Iron Man being swarmed over by Ultron’s Iron Legion. Ironically enough, Ultron and the Iron Legion owe their very existence to Tony Stark (Iron Man). This poster shows Iron Man in some major trouble, his suit completely battered, he looks like he will barely escape…or does he? Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 8 Next we have the Scarlet Witch working her powers in trying to defeat Ultron’s legion. Scarlet Witch, as an offspring of Magneto, is one of the most powerful mutants…erm, miracles in the world. Her powers revolve around her ability to control probability, through hexes and magic. If you take a closer look at Scarlet Witch’s poster, you can see a robot at the bottom of the picture, with an arrow through his eye. That arrow was more than likely fired by Hawkeye. We’ve seen photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, where Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye are together. Might we see a budding romance between the two? Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 6 (Next up), we have Chris Evans as Captain America. Cap looks like he is in deep trouble, as the Iron Legion swarm him from every angle. Notice the “A” patch on Captain America’s shoulder. It is different from the one on his helmet, as the “A” on his helmet is for America, while the different styled “A” on his shoulder is for the Avengers. Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 5 Next up, the beautiful but deadly Black Widow. Black Widow, portrayed by Scarlet Johanson, looks to have some new weapons in the fight against Ultron. Notice the blue arcing electricity coming from her hands. It also seems that the electricity is being channeled through her suit. Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 4 (Next up), we have Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in the grips of Ultron’s Iron Legion. Many of the robots have Have Hawkeye’s arrows piercing their heads. Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 3 Next up, we have probably the most interesting of all six Avengers: Age of Ultron posters, as Vision (Paul Bettany) makes an appearance. However, the real focus of this poster is Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), zipping through a see of Ultron’s minions. You can also see what looks like Thor’s cape in the top right corner, much like Hulk’s arm is shown in the corner of Black Widow’s poster. Hopefully Thor and Hulk will be the next two posters. I am also very interested in knowing the true allegiances of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. We don’t know much, but what we do know, from the after credits scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is that Hydra will have some sort of control over them. Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 1 (Next up), the Hulk taking the puny robots of Ultron’s Iron Legion. As with the other posters revealed at Comic Con, a lot of the robots have Hawkeye’s arrows piercing them in some fashion. Hulk looks like he might be getting overwhelmed in this poster, but as we all know, it’s going to take much more that a few annoying robots to bring him down. Perhaps a Hulkbuster suit is in order? Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art 2 Next we have the God of Thunder in action. Out of all the Avengers posters, save Quicksilver, Thor looks like he is actually fighting free of the Iron Legion, unlike Hulk who seems to be getting swarmed over and pulled down. This is also an excellent look at Thor’s new costume. It seems a lot more metallic than his previous ones. Finally, we have all the posters put together, and from the picture that they portray, it would seem that the Avengers are in some serious trouble. Avengers Age of Ultron-Concept Art FULL Good lord that’s a lot of robots. The Iron Legion is literally living up to its name in this final assembled poster. I really like this final picture of the Avengers battling the Iron Legion, as it portends a dark outcome for the Avengers, as we know them. Which one of the mini-posters is your favorite? Were you able to go and grab at least one from the Comic Con? The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released on May 1, 2015.   Source: Lightly Buzzed, Collider Image sources: Marvel.com, Movie Pilot, Entertainment Weekly
