Is it a coincidence that these images from the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaked the day after we got a trailer release date? Sure, why not?
While it doesn't hold a lot of information we didn't already know, Walt Disney Pictures has released an official synopsis for next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron:
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 places, 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 Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, 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, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
The players are set, and the filming has wrapped, now we just wait until May 1st.
Over the weekend a promotional poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron showed up on Facebook pages. In it, we got a glimpse of Paul Bettany's new character, The Vision. No one can confirm its authenticity, but it's beginning to look more and more genuine.
Today, this potential concept art for The Vision turned up on the internet. While neither have been verified, the similarity between the two leaves us with high hopes.
