Captain America Takes The Spotlight In Avengers: Age Of Ultron Character Poster


The folks over at Marvel are continuing their marketing campaign for Avengers: Age Of Ultron this week, with the arrival of a dedicated Captain America character poster. This latest release appears to be one of the final pieces of artwork slated to arrive, bearing the unmistakable visage of the first avenger, Steve Rogers.

Similarly to the previous onslaught of Avenger-specific posters, this one highlights Cap’s dominant trait; his stern side. Understandably so as he is the leader of the superhero team, a matter which the man himself recently addressed:

“I think [Captain America] feels very comfortable in a sort of leadership role, but I don’t think he gives orders, He does structure, organization — he’s a military guy,” Evans told Yahoo during an on-set interview. “Tony [Stark] is definitely paying the bills, and since there really is no company to report to, we’re kind of this independent unit that needs to rely on each other and work as a team, even in their day-to-day lives.”

In related news, the third and final trailer for the movie is slated to arrive on Thursday, which aligns with Downey Jr.’s hint last week, referring to a “big announcement” on March 5th. We got a teaser for it earlier this morning, and we’ll be sure to post the full thing once it’s live.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1st.


Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
