A few weeks ago, Marvel Studios released the theatrical one-sheet for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ The critical response to the poster’s design was somewhat mixed, to say the least, with the most common reaction being that it seemed rather more generic than one might have expected from such a high profile (not to mention highly anticipated) release. Since then, however, they’ve also released a number of secondary posters, each focusing on a different character.
These character posters represent the bulk of the core cast of the film, namely Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and of course, Ultron. As the posters are essentially portraits, they reveal virtually nothing in terms of the film’s plot, they do give us good, high resolution looks at the core cast. In some cases, these are the first such looks we’ve had outside of a trailer. In particular, these posters provide us with fairly detailed looks at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch not only in full costume, but also using their powers (at least to the extent that still images cans show off those powers). Indeed, if nothing else, the character posters are a tremendous boon to cosplayers everywhere! And what about Ultron, now that his poster has finally been released? Well, I think it’s safe to say there are no strings on him.
While we have previously covered some of these posters here at ScienceFiction.com, now that we have the full set of ten we’ve assembled them all below for your convenience:
