The official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster is here, and I have some questions.
First: Where are the Avengers? Why are they all awkwardly jammed together near the front, with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch rubble surfing up the side? Are they all in some sort of doom funnel? Is someone making an Ultron Smoothie? And what is Captain America looking at that’s so much more interesting than the Very Dangerous Thing the rest of them are looking at? Has Nick Fury had it with these motherf—-n’ superheroes in these motherf—-n’ movies? And why are we still so bad at putting Robert Downey Jr.’s head on things?
Believe it or not, there are spoilers tucked away in there.
If you take a look at the credits at the bottom of the poster, you’ll see four names returning from various Marvel movies: Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/The Falcon), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Eric Selvig), and Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter). That last one is a big surprise—although it’ll probably be a flashback, since The Winter Soldier showed us Atwell’s Agent Carter as an elderly woman in a nursing home. But the fact that her name is listed means we can probably expect some new footage and not just old clips.
Oh, and we’re also not allowed to have our first official look at The Vision yet, but there he is, floating majestically in the distance.
