Marvel Offers First Look at 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and 'Ant-Man'
A series of photos are released by Marvel to give a new sneak peek at its upcoming films, following the airing of "Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe" special on ABC. A first look at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is offered by the studio. Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen play the twins.
Concept arts that show Hulk facing a much bigger foe and the green monster standing with Black Widow in a destroyed city are shown as well. Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson will reprise their roles as Hulk and Black Widow in "Avengers 2", while James Spader is tapped to play the main baddie, Ultron.
Marvel also unveils the title hero in "Ant-Man" and a new teaser of "Guardians of the Galaxy". Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd will play the original Ant-Man and his successor respectively, while Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel band together for the "Guardians".
"Age of Ultron" is due May 1, 2015. "I think people are going to very, very excited to see what we're doing with the voice that Joss [Whedon] is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron. We love Ultron from the comics, and have always loved Ultron, and at no point do we want him to just be a robot," producer Kevin Feige previously told Movies.com.
"We want him to have an extreme personality and attitude, and James Spader is doing an unbelievable job. Again, for us it's always about subverting expectations. Whenever you think you know what's coming next, we surprise people or deliver it in a slightly unexpected way. And Spader is doing that with Mr. Ultron."
"Ant-Man" directed by Edgar Wright will be released in the U.S. starting July 17, 2015. "Guardians of the Galaxy" helmed by James Gunn will arrive this year on August 1.
