Following yesterday’s so-so final poster, the first Avengers: Age of Ultron character poster has gone online, and no surprise, it’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).  Yesterday’s poster put Chris Evans slightly more front-and-center, but Downey will always be the face of the franchise until he permanently hangs up the armor.  It also doesn’t hurt that if you’re going to tweet out the poster, you should start with the guy who has 3.6 million followers as opposed to 1.8 million followers.

In his tweet, Downey also teased a “big announcement in 8 days,” so I assume we’re going to get one new character poster per day for the next eight days, and then there will be a new trailer.  I will further predict that this trailer will give away too much of the plot, but it doesn’t matter because people are hungry to see this movie as soon as possible.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in 3D on May 1st, and also stars Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany,Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba, and Don Cheadle.

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.
