The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We've already seen a good amount of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to the teaser trailer and the most recent second trailer, but one thing we haven't seen is a sweet shot of all the superheroes together. But that changes today with the cover for the latest issue of Empire. It's a Photoshopped image of them together, so it's not from the movie, but it's cool to see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) standing with new characters like Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). But no sign of Paul Bettany as The Vision yet. Look!

Here's the magazine cover for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Empire:

And here's a close-up cover image of the titular villain as well:

Take a closer look at the second trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is written & directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Serenity). Earth's mightiest heroes must once again assemble when a super intelligent robot created by Tony Stark created to help fight any threats that might harm the world actually turns against him and the human race. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson all return in the sequel to Marvel's The Avengers with new names like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen joining the team. Disney & Marvel release the film this summer on May 1st. You ready?

    Ultron looks so friggin' cool. I'm excited.
    • Oriyan J. Ovadia
      Yeah, but why is he using a bluetooth headset?
      • JBroti
        What're you talking about? Look back on the character in the comics....that's clearly his design. Show me a picture of a headset that looks exactly like that. Exactly.
        • Casio
          Do you have a dog in this fight? JBroti?
          • JBroti
            Keep liking your own comments, IDGAF what you have to say to me. And if by dog you mean your mother....then yes ๐Ÿ˜‰
      • ProjectionistHP
        If he's going to destroy mankind, he's going to need both arms.
  • OfficialJab
    That Quicksilver is going to have to win me over.
    • JBroti
      That's what everyone said about XMen and look at the love he has now. And he was only in one scene whereas this quicksilver will be in a solid portion of the movie. Plus with Whedon's vision, I think you'll be fine.
      • OfficialJab
        Well him working in another franchise doesn't reassure me, him being in more of the movie will actually be worse if he's not good, and I do like Whedon, but this QS still looks weird.
        • JBroti
          Understandable. But XMen's QS was pretty weird looking too. We shall see.
          • OfficialJab
            Also, and this seems like an especially contrived complaint for something like Xmen, but these characters like QS and Flash seem like they're way too strong and would drastically unbalance the conflict. I sort of hope he's getting his ass kicked in this movie to help that out.
          • JBroti
            I don't think he studio's solution to unbalanced power is to get your ass kicked, haha. They could dilute his powers, just as they have with Hulk and Thor. He may only have speed and that's it. Literally it. He'd be like Ultron's messenger lol
  • Rauncor
    ultron cover is amazing, the other one looks like they asked too much of the photoshop artist.
    • Tuomas Lassila
      They're both awesome!
      • ProjectionistHP
        Did you actually see that first one? Trained monkeys can probably photoshop better. And heroes standing in line with serious faces, haven't seen that before...
        • Tuomas Lassila
          Yeah I saw the first one, don't see how it's badly photoshopped, all I see is awesomeness. Besides, this will be the best superhero sequel ever and people still find something to complain about?
          • ProjectionistHP
            Film itself will probably kickass. But companys like Marvel and Empire should really hire more qualified artists to do their marketing.
  • izakkson
    whoever photoshopped the group cover needs to be fired. looks awful.
    • Tuomas Lassila
      Dude, the best film 2015, who cares for the photoshop quality?!
    • JBroti
      You're not the first nor will you be the last to criticize Marvel's photoshopping abilities. Give it a rest.
      • Casio
        STFU JBroti
        • JBroti
          Hahaha.... Make me.
  • Tuomas Lassila
    Looking at Ultron and I'm like: "Is that a nose?" ๐Ÿ˜€
    • me
      yea, it grows whenever he lies
  • ari smulders
    I have ultimate faith in joss whedon, hail the God of great storylines, depth and awesome action sequences! He is mine รผber storyteller of cinema of the last 30 years! o yeah I like Ayer, Scott, Kubrick and Cameron too! :)
  • JBroti
    I love the need for the italicized "look!". Well, obviously. Great shot of the team but more so of Ultron! Also looking forward to all the banter of accused shitty photoshop.
  • HG2012
    so marvel's quicksilver is just aaron johnson wearing jeans and an under armor shirt??
    • theboyd
      Marvel does not need fancy overtly complex costumes to sell its superheroes...unless that's the way the character was portrayed in the comics.
  • theboyd
    That shot of Ultron's face! OMFG, I am in awe!
    • Mark Brackney
      Yes. Amazing how a, Literal, Robot can have such eerily Human-like Emotions. :)
  • toonfed
    What? the Hulk looks like the thing from 1994 fantastic four's movie. but, you know... green
    • Mark Brackney
      ....what the Hell's wrong, with You? I see no Such Resemblance.
  • A very good movie, so want to see part 2, now
