Very few people have seen footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there has, of course, been rampant speculation about what the film entails. Even a trailer won’t give away the full picture, so we’ll wait until May of next year for all the details. A new official Age of Ultron synopsis, however, now sums up the story nicely without giving too much away. There are, however, hints about the origin of Ultron, and what seems like a confirmation that Paul Bettany‘s character, Vision, is in fact an evolved version of his previous character Jarvis. (Which we’ve all known, but hasn’t been stated officially by Marvel or Bettany.) Read More »
Below is your first real look at Vision, played by Paul Bettany, in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Like our first small look at the character, this is an artist’s depiction rather than a photo of the actor in costume. But it shows much of the detail you want to see. Red skin, green costume, yellow/white cape — all there. More to the point, the character hasn’t been made to look normal. This incarnation of Vision is immediately recognizable as the character from comic books. The only thing missing, in this art at least, is the giant collar. We can deal with that. Check out the new look at Vision in Age of Ultron after the jump.
Update: A new piece of art gives a much better look at the costume.
Update 2: That second piece of art has been pulled.

Potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Proceed with caution.
Marvel Studios Kevin Feige might be vague, but he very rarely lies. He told us Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy years before it happened. He proclaimed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier would change the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it did. There are plenty of other teases that have yet to pay off, but which we believe will do so. One in particular concerns the Avengers.
Feige has long said what he loves about the team is that the core members could be changed along the way. Just because Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow are the team at the end of The Avengers and beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron, that doesn’t mean they’ll always be the only team members.
Now, a new rumor suggests Feige’s prophecy will come true and Avengers: Age of Ultron will significantly change up the team roster by the end. Read the potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Read More »

At this point, we only have a vague idea of what Avengers: Age of Ultron is even about. But now we know how it’s going to end, at least for one major character. In a recent chat with Larry King, Jeremy Renner addressed a certain rumor about Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

If we had any complaint about the first Avengers, it was that there wasn’t nearly enough of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk or Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Fortunately, Kevin Feige has already promised to remedy that lack in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the latest batch of images indicate that he plans to deliver.
Hulk and Hawkeye figure prominently in these new stills, along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and the guy who bosses them all around. No, not Nick Fury. Director Joss Whedon.
Take a peek at the new Avengers Age of Ultron images, and read Whedon’s comments on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor, after the jump.
