The Avengers: Age of Ultron

If yesterday's new poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron didn't do anything for you, maybe a new character poster featuring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man will tickle your fancy. In the background, we see one of the locations glimpsed in the trailer, which is believed to be tied to Baron von Strucker (who Thomas Kretschmann played in the credits sequence of Captain America The Winter Soldier). In addition, when Downey debuted the poster on his Twitter and Facebook pages, he added a messaged that teases some kind of big announcement coming in eight days. Could it be an Iron Man sequel or something else? Look!

Here's the new character poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Robert Downey Jr.'s Twitter:

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

And here's the tweet teasing some kind of big announcement on the way in eight days:

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?

Aw man....I wonder what the big announcement is? Wolverine in the MCU? A new Iron Man film? A new Doritos flavor???

HELL YEAH!!! I am so ready for this!!! 🙂 I think, another movie announcement is unlikely. Because Phase 3 is already bursting at the seams! And i don't think they will already announce a Movie for Phase 4. But Marvel knows how to surpise the fans! 🙂 Everything is possible!!! My wishlist for the announcemend: - Ironman 4 with the real Mandarin - Wolverine joins Infinity War - Spiderman-Actor announcement - Spiderman as post-credit-scene in Ant-Man - S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie - New Hulk Movie - Another new Movie for Phase 3 or 4) But there are still thousand things i will happy about!

More realistically, it's probably going to be a new trailer or some sort of news with spiderman's involvment. Because half the things you mentioned in bullet form have already either been stated to not happening or wouldn't happen in general because the story overall universe story isn't heading in that direction.

JBroti on Feb 25, 2015


Really? O_o i think everything of this is possible. There is no reason that some things of the list doens'nt work...

Dubmaster2010 on Feb 25, 2015


@JBrotsis:disqus No, It won't be the next trailer because the next trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming out on Friday March 6th.

Sean on Feb 25, 2015


I'd say it's more likely that there's going to be a Spidey casting announcement....although I don't know why they'd have to wait 8 days to make such an announcement.

Great poster....just disappointed we again have to see the new suit minus the helmet. If the movies start showing Iron Man in the heat of battle with his helmet off, then I'll start becoming ok with these posters. I'm still upset Thor never wears his helmet in battles in the movies.

JBroti on Feb 25, 2015


The announcement is either Iron Man 4 or either an actor or director for the new Spider-Man.

Tuomas Lassila on Feb 25, 2015


Also, what the actual f*ck was peoples problem with yesterdays poster?! All I saw was a beautiful kick-ass poster I direly want to put on my wall!

Tuomas Lassila on Feb 25, 2015


Just because it's RDJ doesn't mean the big announcement is Marvel related. He did a few months back, teased a big announcement, and it had something to do with his movie "The Judge". That said, I hope it's a Marvel announcement!!!!!1!

CoosCoos on Feb 25, 2015


Was that Judge announcement on a Marvel-related tweet though? If they gave him a poster to leak they might not want him cross-promoting something that could end up being competition along with it.

you smart OJ

TheOct8pus on Feb 25, 2015


Any kind of big news is always GREAT news from Marvel!

Tony G. on Feb 25, 2015


He isn't signed on to make another Ironman movie. He signed for 5. Times up. It's probably another snippet of the next movie at the end of this one. Perhaps Black Spiderman.

Guest on Feb 25, 2015


There never was going to any past 3. It was planned as a trilogy.

Jason Scarpelli on Feb 25, 2015


Why does anybody think there will be an Iron Man 4? That's NEVER going to happen. He's old, his contract has already been amended to add more movies, they have Phase 3 planned out to 2019--making him even OLDER by Avengers 4--so just give it up. Claims of Iron Man 4 are the stupidest I've heard yet from fans, and there have been some seriously stupid ones.

davidshaw on Feb 25, 2015


I think it would be so funny if that was the announcement, just so you felt super dumb for writing this.

Sky on Feb 25, 2015


It won't be the announcement.

Jason Scarpelli on Feb 25, 2015


Its not too far fetched. He could have been reinvigorated by the plans for phase 3, but he could be expensive. As to his age, that isn't really a factor, it's not like he has to do any of his own stunts.

mooreworthy on Feb 25, 2015


The thing is for all their planning there will always be the odd curveball, take Spider-Man for example. It wasn't on the cards until the deal was actually done. Who knows if RDJ had a change of heart and pushed for an Iron Man 4. The whole Marvel has everything planned in rubbish. A general overall plan, yes, but not the detail that some people claim.

Steven on Feb 26, 2015


Maybe they will address the Spiderman casting rumors. I actually hope not, for it has distracted a bit from Age of Ultron. Perhaps that explains these variants of Avenger posters.

mooreworthy on Feb 25, 2015


do female audiences dig superhero movies?

boball on Feb 25, 2015


I do; and so does my mom - we both have collected comics in our past (I still collect a couple)

VAharleywitch on Feb 25, 2015


The next eight days needs to go by past, can't wait to hear the big news.

Chelsea on Feb 25, 2015


The announcement probably has to do with Spider-Man. There is NO Iron Man 4 people. Marvel announced when the first one was released that it was always going to be a trilogy. Even Robert Downey Jr. said this.

Jason Scarpelli on Feb 25, 2015


Iron Spider...

1ftninja on Feb 25, 2015


Or maybe you're wrong and the three movies with RDJ that made billions and were some of the most watched around the world inspired more. Maybe Hollywood isnt as stupid as you and likes making money. And maybe you should update your info, not hold onto 7 year old garbage. Fact is plans change and new contracts can be signed, Robert Downey junior OBVIOUSLY loves his roll as Iron-man and Hollywood OBVIOUSLY loves money, so OBVIOUSLY the smart choice is to make more.

Troy Kindt on Feb 27, 2015


Adjust your meds, dude.

Chris Jones-Hansen on Feb 27, 2015


I'm just passing along facts. Yes things change in Hollywood so you never know what might happen. Will the announcement be an Iron Man 4? I still don't think so. Marvel's slate is already booked and there is no room date wise for a film. Since they already moved recently release dates due to Spidey being added. IF....and it's a major if a fourth one does get made, it wont be added into the MCU until phase 4. Which will probably be sometime in the mid 2020s the earliest. As for calling me stupid, that just makes you look even more of the same.

Jason Scarpelli on Feb 27, 2015


WAR MACHINE standalone? Probably not, but what if???

DAVIDPD on Feb 26, 2015


Ready for the flames... but I hope it's another Ironman. Yeah, yeah, they said, he said, she said... people can change their minds. Also, RDJ is NOT too old. 😛

avconsumer2 on Feb 26, 2015


Birdman is joining the Avengers!

Ridgecity on Feb 26, 2015


Best. Cross. Over. Ever.

denverchris on Feb 26, 2015


Iron Man 4, I'm done, I'm not a sell out.

disqus_IHGKf4XKht on Feb 26, 2015


it's one of 3 things: 1) Iron Man 4 2) Avengers 2 release day pushed up to combat the fight happening on May 2 3) War Machine Movie i am counting on the fact that it will be Iron Man 4.

Wilmer Diaz on Feb 26, 2015


The entire movie was leaked online already. Same with Ted2.
