Avengers: Age of Ultron – The First Official Photos

With Comic-Con 2014 just around the corner and Marvel Studios once again expected to blow the roof of the mother with its latest Hall H presentation, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the studio has plenty of publicity material ready to share with audiences around the world. Entertainment Weekly scored the first official photos from Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring the full cast in character, on the set and sporting some newish costumes. Check out the red detailing on Captain America’s pecs. Fancy!

So take a gander as these nifty new stills starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Joss Whedon as himself and Samuel L. Jackson’s costume as a tacit confirmation that he will indeed be appearing in the film, just not in the preview photos.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015, but expect some more news and possibly even in a trailer in the next few weeks. Comic-Con, you guys. It’s gonna be huge.
