UPDATE 7/26/14: The circle is complete... Check out the new posters and everything we have combined down below.
Friends, moviegoers, film-nerds! We stand - well, sit - on the eve of glory, ready to burst through the gates of the con to end all cons: Comic-Con.
I know, it's a great feeling, knowing all that sweat and grime makes your Gandalf cosplay even more authentic. Irregardless, we sit our ground, for tomorrow, we fight! ...for folding chairs.
Until then, while the doors remain closed, I am burdened with glorious purpose: bringing you readers some epic Avengers 2: Age of Ultron official concepts to drool over! As if there wasn't enough bodily fluid in that line, already!
What's on the menu? Well, I'm glad you asked. First up we have Tony Stark showing the world why there can be only one tin man.
...and he does not share spotlight.
Next up we have Scarlet Witch, and it's this piece that really catches my attention as we haven't had a really clear look at what powers she will possess in the film iteration of the iconic character. Needless to say, she's totally overpowered, and I couldn't be happier.
It would appear "Fingers that slice through metal" and "Making robots bleed Kool-Aid" need to be added to the list of potential superpowers.
She didn't decapitate that poor, murderous machine of murderization, she split it across the jaw...
You can always count on Joss Whedon to give us strong, compelling, bad ass female characters, and I have a feeling Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch may just be one of his best.
UPDATE: And the goodness keeps coming! It looks like we'll be getting a full-on panoramic much like the one for Avengers: Assemble!
Next up we have Black Widow dressed up in Tron cosplay and what appears to be Hulk's hunky shoulder on her left (her left, not yours), and Thor's hammer on her right. Also, is that a blue streak in the background?
And I was saving the best for last. Cap's orders. Enjoy!!
UPDATE #2: We have a great shot of Quicksilver showing off just how chaotic and frenetic Joss' interpretation of him will be. He's going to be the polar opposite of Evan Peters' rendition it would appear, and I couldn't be happier.
Also, in case you didn't notice. That's Vision in the yellow cape. I'll give you a second to pick your jaw up off the floor. We live in truly wondrous times, fellow Marvel fans.
Next up we have Hawkeye, but from the numerous bolts strewn across the scene, I'm sure you were expecting him to show up sooner or later. One thing I'd like to note, of all the characters he appears to be in the roughest shape right now. Foreshadowing, perhaps?
And now, on the last day of SDCC, Marvel has officially released the final two pieces to the puzzle: Hulk and Thor. Surprisingly, Hulk isn't smashing as much as I thought he'd be. This could be bad...
It looks like they changed up Thor's armor a bit. The blue flourishes appear to be missing, going instead for a two-tone red on steel look. Oh, also, he just sent a lightning bolt through a sea of metal robots. Awesome.
Last but not least we have an image of all the posters connected, and the puzzle is now complete. Notice any hidden surprises or Easter eggs?
What say you, Marvel-fans? What do you make of these images? Do you think there are any hidden surprises in store for us? Sure, we'll see Hulk and Thor, but do you think there's a reason they revealed our first look at Vision before a poster of Thor and Hulk? Also, which Marvel character are you most excited to see debut in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron? Let me know in the comments below!
