Posted on April 8, 2015 at 3:17 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


The first junkets for one of the year’s most anticipated films, Avengers: Age of Ultron, get underway today, which means you can expect a lot of promotion for the Marvel sequel in the coming weeks. But that’s OK when we get things like these new Age of Ultron covers for Entertainment Weekly, which provide our clearest look yet at Paul Bettany as The Vision. The comics character, of course, will give physical form to J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark’s electronic butler, so his interaction with the team should be quite something.

The Age of Ultron covers also provide new looks at the entire cast, plus the villainous Ultron, a drone-gone-wrong of Stark’s design, embodied by James Spader via motion capture. As the Marvel sequel’s release looms closer, it’s going to be tougher and tougher to avoid seeing too much from the movie before it opens, but teases like this only serve to heighten anticipation even more.

Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron covers below, via EW. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgard, and Hayley Atwell. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens 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.
