SDCC 2014: Heroes Battle in Four More 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Posters

Marvel Studios hasn't even had its big Hall H presentation yet, but the comic book movie champ continues to expertly build anticipation for Avengers: Age of Ultron anyways.

Four new pieces of promotional artwork from the sequel show off Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and new addition Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) battling hordes of Ultron drones.

That's not all, either.  One of these posters being handed out at the Marvel Booth on the exhibition floor also includes our first sense of Vision (Paul Bettany).

Bettany has voiced JARVIS in three Iron Man movies, as well as the first Avengers.  In Age of Ultron, Bettany upgrades to a physical role as Vision, the artificial life form created by the villainous A.I. Ultron, himself the creation of Tony Stark.

See, since the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. as we knew it, the Avengers have taken over as a force for peace, but they're starting to get a little tired of saving the day over and over again.  In order to give the team a break, Stark builds Ultron, a hugely sophisticated artificial intelligence to oversee the Iron Legion, Stark's global force of drones.  But Ultron decides that the only way to achieve peace is by wiping out humanity, and he's willing to go through Earth's Mightiest Heroes to make it happen.

On Wednesday, Marvel Studios unveiled two bits of poster art featuring Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in action.  These four new posters join those two in a mosaic.  The last of these four posters, the one featuring Quicksilver, shows Vision sporting a comics-accurate yellow cape. 

“A lot of times when Ultron starts talking, it’s beautiful," said Evans last week.  "It’s really intelligent stuff …  He’s out to do the things he wants to do because he’s disgusted with X, Y, and Z.  You could probably sit down with Ultron and have a really intelligent conversation.  He could blow your mind with his views.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron is due to follow up the biggest movie of all time in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Joss Whedon's sequel will no doubt get plenty of attention in Hall H on Saturday, but fans are hoping for more from Marvel.  Specifically, some titles for the six mystery projects that recently received release dates between now and 2019.  And maybe an announcement about just who is playing Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson.  And some sign that Ant-Man is still worth being psyched about since the departure of Edgar Wright.
