We’ve reached the point in the Avengers: Age of Ultron marketing campaign where the deluge of character posters begins, and for once it’s actually a warranted practice. There are a lot of characters in writer/director Joss Whedon’s upcoming Marvel sequel, so it’ll be fun to see each one get his or her time in the spotlight—it’s just gonna take a week or so to get through them all. Following yesterday’s Robert Downey Jr.-fronted one-sheet, today Disney has released an Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk poster, revealing the big green guy in all his glory.

Obviously there have been technological advances since Hulk’s portrayal in The Avengers, and indeed mo-cap pioneer Andy Serkis worked with Mark Ruffalo on the Marvel sequel. Based on this poster there’s much more detail in the musculature and, yes, chest hair for the alter ego this time around. Moreover, we can see a number of Ultron robots closing in on the guy in the midst of a particular battle sequence.

Check out the new Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk poster below, via Ruffalo’s twitter, and check back here over the coming days for the rest of the character posters. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron:

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.
