After saving the world from Hydra and simultaneously dismantling S.H.I.E.L.D. to save it from itself, Captain America, Black Widow, Falcon and Nick Fury return from the catastrophic events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for an even greater threat: Ultron. Falcon’s (Anthony Mackie) role may just be a cameo appearance, but the others are suiting up in new duds to save the world again in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and each are getting their own character posters.
Last week, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo kicked off the release of new character-based Avengers 2 one-sheets beginning with Iron Man and Hulk, respectively, and on Friday, Samuel L. Jackson shared posters for Black Widow, Nick Fury and Thor. This week we’re meeting the rest, yesterday with Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, and today with Chris Evans’ Captain America.
Evans shared the following poster via Twitter moments ago and later today you’ll be able to read our interview with him from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Captain America is once again the star-spangled Avenger, this time – like the others – sporting the Avengers “A” logo on his brand new field outfit designed by Stark. The new costume meshes the more practical designs of The First Avenger and Winter Soldier versions he wore, but blending in the colors from the fist Avengers movie. Evans tells us this one’s a tad less comfortable than his blue “Stealth” suit he wore last year on screen, but he digs this one nonetheless.
As for Avengers 2 marketing this week, there’s a lot more on the way. Yesterday reports and and rumors pointed towards imminent official news regarding the next Spider-Man movie and how the character will fit within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and eventually, the Avengers roster. There’s also a new trailer debuting on ABC this week (teaser video up top) on Thursday, the same day Robert Downey Jr. promises there will be a major Marvel movie announcement.
With the Cap poster now released, that leaves only the new characters for the next few days: Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Vision.
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, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig, 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.
