The Avengers: Age of Ultron is the sequel to Joss Whedon’s monster hit The Avengers, and today we’ve found a fan-made poster which should get fans incredibly excited about Marvel’s 2015 sequel.
We usually don’t post fan-made posters for films, but this Avengers: Age of Ultron fan-made poster is one of the most impressive ones we’ve ever come across.
Below you’ll see the beloved Lincoln Memorial seemingly destroyed by the film’s genius-robotic antagonist, Ultron, as he sits atop his new throne while holding the tesseract in one hand and stepping on Iron Man’s helmet.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was created by the artist Matt Broox. He also created another poster for the film, saying, “Why I suddenly got in geek mode and started making movie posters late into the night, I’ll never know.”
Nevertheless, we’re glad he gave The Avengers: Age of Ultron a shot. Matt went on to say, “Maybe because I got tired of seeing some awful “studio” posters over the years.” While there are still some great official posters coming from Marvel, this one in particular is breathtaking.
The artist’s bio reveals that he’s been “creating art and general shenanigans for the entirety of my existence.” Apparently he was a fairly “big nerd” in his early years and got his inspiration from imitating work seen by his favorite comic book artists.
He also has some other interesting posters as well as art on his blog, so feel free to visit and see some exceptional work. Marvel, if you’re listening, hire this guy for some future posters.
In recent Avengers: Age of Ultron news, Joss Whedon has been downplaying any hopes that Agent Coulson will return for The Avengers sequel.
Despite Coulson’s involvement in Marvel’s Agents of Shield TV show, Whedon feels as though he’s already got enough going on in Avengers 2 with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being added to the film.
While Joss Whedon hasn’t commented on who will be playing the two new characters, there’s been quite a lot of information about Quicksilver coming from Kick-Ass 2 actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Aaron hasn’t confirmed that he’s gotten the role just yet, but he’s been talking about the character in great detail. During Comic-Con, he said that his wife recently bought him a vintage comic which just so happened to be the first time Quicksilver ever appeared alongside The Avengers.
We look forward to finding out who is officially cast for Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, as well as who will be voicing Ultron. If you’re not very familiar with Ultron, feel free to learn all about the sequel’s villain and his history with The Avengers in our Ultron guide.
If he ends up being even a glimpse of the version of Ultron featured in the fan-made poster above, we can’t wait to see how exciting the final battle sequence will be when The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on its May 1, 2015 release date.
