Avengers: Age of Ultron New Set Photos

New set photos for Avengers: Age of Ultron have been released in Entertainment Weekly, and I have the pictures here. My overall impression is that the new costume designs are awesome, and I have my comments below each picture.

The cover for Entertainment Weekly gives us our first look at the main antagonist, Ultron, played by the brilliant James Spader. While the cover does not show a lot of Ultron, it does show his robot soldiers, which are blue, whereas Ultron is red. Also, you may notice that Captain America is the new secondary face of the Marvel Universe, with The Winter Soldier outdoing The Dark World at the box office.

What's up with Cap's face? Something looks weird with the boxiness of his jaw. Otherwise, his new costume is a cool blend of the one from The Avengers and The Winter Soldier. Thor's new costume has a cool look as well, although it is not a lot different than the Dark World one.

 Hawkeye's new winter costume is cool, especially the jacket.

The Science Bros return! Tony and Bruce are back baby, oh yeah! 

Black Widow's shorter, more functional, hair returns, and it is more than welcome. Widow's look from The Winter Soldier was cool, but her Avengers' costume is most definitely my favorite. In addition to the hair, Widow is said to have more powerful electric stinger for her suit, which you can see with the red gauntlet.

Looks like a party at the new Avengers Tower/Mansion! Everyone's looking sharp, and Thor is apparently present since his Hammer is on the table. To a lot of people's surprise, Don Cheadle is present. So does this mean he will get to suit up with the rest of the them in the movie?

Not much to say other than "In Whedon We Trust."

This is essentially the same picture that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch that was released earlier in the year. Considering how utterly amazing Quicksilver was in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it is going to take a lot for Whedon to top Bryan Singer's version.

While I did not notice this initially, Grace Randolph from Beyond the Trailer noted that Captain America's costume features an Avengers "A" on the shoulder pad, and Cap is, again, right behind Iron Man, instead of behind Thor.

What do you think of the set photos? Please comment below and let me know.

  1. All these pictures are awesome and have made me even more excited for the movie somehow. With comic-con right around the corner, hopefully we'll get a trailer. Great post, James!

  2. I feel like you might know this (but maybe not). Guardians of The Galaxy...does that take place on Earth WITH the Avengers? But the Avengers just aren't featured in the movie. Or is Guardians not set on Earth? Because I'm sure theyll team up eventually, so they have to be alive during the same time period.

    1. Yes, I actually do know the answer. Guardians of The Galaxy takes place in a far off galaxy, which is why The Avengers are not around. The main character, Star Lord, grew up on Earth, but was captured by aliens when he was a kid, hence the 80s music (at least that's what the comic is like). I don't want to spoil how exactly the other Marvel movies will tie-in into Guardians, but depending on the success of the Guardians movie, so we might see them team-up with The Avengers. Hopefully that answers your question.

  3. I have the mag, and Thor is in that group party shot -- he's on the far left, and Cap's looking at him. In yours, that's Thor's hand holding a drink in the left foreground. The article is lots of fun, and discusses Ultron a LOT. Well worth picking up a copy at your local bookstore or wherever.

    1. You sure that's him? It looks like a purple shirt, which might be Banner. But seeing Thor's hammer on the table is funny and cool. Thanks for the info about the mag, I might decide to pick it up after all!

    2. Am I sure it's Thor? Me? Would I not be able to recognize just his hand? Lol. It's absolutely him in the wider shot -- long blond hair tied back, beard, cute nose, great jawline... click here to see someone's scan-in of that page :-) Looks like you might be able to read the whole article on that site, not sure.

    3. And then I realized I only linked to that image, not the whole site. Go here to see the whole article scanned in on some random person's blog.

  5. Everyone's looking great! I usually don't care that much about the costumes, I usually have a hard time even telling differences in them from one movie to the next, but I have to say I'm very glad that Black Widow's hair is back to curly. Looks much better that way. I like Hawkeye's jacket too. No doubt this movie will be amazing!

    1. Even though her hair in The Winter Soldier looked better in the film than the pictures, the short curly hair is definitely better!
