Most of the Avengers: Age of Ultron marketing has, quite reasonably, focused on the franchise’s marquee superheroes: Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the like. But as the superpowered sequel nears release, Marvel Studios has released a batch of images that put some of the supporting players in the spotlight.
That includes Rhodey (Don Cheadle), Baron Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), and Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis). Though the big names get some love too. After the jump, flip through the latest Avengers Age of Ultron images. Plus, check out another Avengers Age of Ultron clip and featurette.
Marvel presented the new Avengers Age of Ultron images. Some of these will look familiar, but others are definitely new.
(And we note that Marvel’s press releases are spelling Serkis’ character name as Klaw, but when it is seen spelled out in the film, it is Klaue. In Marvel’s comics lore, Klaue is the family name, but Ulysses’ father eventually changed it to Klaw.)
And here’s the latest Avengers Age of Ultron clip, which shows that adorable Avengers party scene in full.
Finally, here’s a featurette that delves into the costumes of Avengers Age of Ultron. It was released by Under Armour, who would like you to know that they are what the Avengers wear in their downtime.
Avengers: Age of Ultron premieres May 1.
