Entertainment Weekly has released a new banner for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron along with a few different covers for the magazine. The banner features Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and The Vision facing off against a monstrous-looking Ultron.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talks about Vision’s creation with EW. There may be some minor SPOILERS, so proceed at your own risk:
Strucker has been using Loki’s scepter for human experimentation, which bestowed the siblings with powers of magic (Scarlet Witch) and speed (Quicksilver). But the bad baron piques the interest of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark for other reasons. “Von Strucker was working on a lot of stuff, including robotics,” says Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. “Tony realizes, ‘[Those robotics] might be able to help me get over the hump of some of the AI stuff I’ve been working on.’?” Stark’s invention, Ultron, is born from the marriage of both men’s technologies. Alas, adolescence is a bitch, and Ultron goes rogue, shreds Stark’s other artificial-intelligence program, J.A.R.V.I.S., and gives rise to his own awesome creation: the synthezoid known as the Vision (played by Paul Bettany, who previously voiced J.A.R.V.I.S.).
Release Date May 1st.
