After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ comes out this weekend, there’s only one film left in Marvel Studios’ Phase Two and that’s ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’. With a film as big as this on its way, there was no chance that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes wouldn’t have a huge presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. And it all started with a set of exclusive posters.
Last week, we reported that Marvel was giving away some concept art posters at their booth this weekend. It all started with Iron Man and Scarlet Witch, but as the con progressed, two more posters were released each day and we could see that they all connected to form one big picture. Now we can see the whole thing assembled. You can check it out below, followed by a gallery with each individual poster so that you can get a better look at the details, including the first glimpse at the Vision:
Another way that the characters from Joss Whedon’s upcoming sequel made an impact at the con was a number of displays throughout the weekend at the Marvel booth. Thanks to the official Instagram accounts of Marvel and Agent M, we were able to check out these goodies that included Black Widow’s motorcycle, Captain America’s shattered shield, and a robot that may or may not be an early model of Ultron or a fallen member of the Iron Legion:
Finally, the grand finale was the epic panel in Hall H. Unfortunately, Whedon couldn’t make the con due to an injury and Scarlet Johansson opted to stay home because of her pregnancy, but Marvel Studios president was joined by cast members Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and James Spader on stage to talk about the follow-up to 2012’s ‘The Avengers’. Thanks to Marvel’s YouTube channel, you can see some highlights from their presentation:
