Marvel Studios have already kept themselves busy with several movie productions after the announcement of some films’ release dates. Just last week, we’ve already had our first look at the superheroes from the set of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, with the addition of new characters, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
But what we haven’t seen are these new concept art posters of Marvel’s upcoming movies, “Ant-Man” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” that were released during the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con!
Ant-Man might be the tiniest superhero in the Marvel universe but the concept art poster shows that the character is still dominant in the microscopic world too.
The poster (illustrated by Andy Park) offers a first look at the cast of the film, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, who will be playing Scott Lang and Hank Pym respectively.
For those who are unfamiliar with the story of Ant-Man, Scott Lang is a thief who stole the shrinking suit from the scientist Dr Hank Pym aka the original Ant-Man. The scientist was also the culprit behind the invention of Marvel’s villain Ultron but the creator has been changed to Tony Stark instead for the Marvel cinematic universe.
The film is expected to be released on 17th July next year with its newly appointed director, Peyton Reed. The script will be rewritten by writer-director Adam Mckay as well after director Edgar Wright and writer Joe Cornish left the project due to creative differences with the studio.
Meanwhile, 8 new concept art posters for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” have been released during the comic convention as well, featuring artworks from various artists including Ryan Meinerding and Andy Park. The posters feature Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, all the other superheroes battling against an army of Ultrons.
Yes, you heard that right. An army of the Ultrons!
We hear that when all the concept art posters are revealed, it will combine to make one big giant poster. Woot!
With such a huge amount of Ultrons in the film, can we expect the Hulk to defeat them all instead?
The sequel for “The Avengers” will be released on 1st May next year, followed by “Ant-Man” two months later. The studio is likely to release more updates about their upcoming movies so for now, we’ll just have wait to find out what other superhero films will be released soon!
