Marvel has released a new poster for “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Joss Whedon’s sequel to 2012’s blockbuster superhero team-up.
The image assembles all the usual suspects: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), along with supporting player Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The poster also includes newcomers Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). James Spader will be providing the voice of the titular villain, Ultron. Hovering just above the fray is a gold-cloaked figure with his features obscured — believed to be The Vision (Paul Bettany).
The cast credits in the poster also confirm that Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter, Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill, Idris Elba’s Heimdall, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and Stellan Skarsgård’s Selvig will appear in the new film, which will hit theaters on May 1.
In the meantime, viewers can get their fix of Chris Hemsworth when the “Thor” star hosts “Saturday Night Live” on March 7.
