Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch Dominate Two Character Posters For Avengers: Age Of Ultron


Marvel’s dedicated marketing strategy for its upcoming superhero sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron has been ambitious to say the least. As well as the expected trailers, clips, Superbowl spots and stills, a string of solo Avenger character posters have flooded the web. Up to now, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Thor, Hawkeye and Captain America have all graced their very own one-sheets.

With those franchise main players established, the focus has shifted to newbies Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). When they’re not behaving all superhero-esque, the sibling duo go by the names Wanda and Pietro Maximoff – but don’t let that fool you. Armed with an arsenal of powers, the pair are primed to do battle against anyone who stands in their way. If the last full-length trailer is anything to go on – that’s probably going to be all of the Avengers.

You can catch Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in action when Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1st. Until then, get a better glimpse at them in the posters below.

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.
