We all know that Marvel is bringing a bunch go juicy goodness for us all at Comic-Con this weekend. Their panel isn’t until Saturday, that hasn’t stopped them from adding to all the good stuff they’ve given us over the past week and a half. With Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man being Marvel’s next two slated movies, that’s what we expected to hear about (and we have) on top of what other movies they will announce (CAN’T WAIT).
Concept art is a way for the creators and minds behind movies to put their thoughts on paper, what they want their version of the movie to be. The world now has the first (full suit) look at what Tony Stark’s Iron Man batting it out against Ultron and his minions next May via poster form. And I must say, it’s freaking awesome! That’s not what is important though, this is simply to let us see the new look of Iron Man and that Stark will in fact be back in the suit, at least one more time (DUH).
The next is Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and our first look of her in action, just like Iron Man – ‘hexing’ it out against Ultron minions. I for one am very excited to see her in this role, I’ve been a fan of hers for a while now and she looks just awesome as Witch. I can’t wait to see her powers on screen and what Mr. Whedon does with her character arc throughout the movie, along with her brothers. Oh and the poster looks just as awesome as Iron Man (once again, DUH).
The last poster is in actually full poster form. Two main characters and the superhero the movie is about. We see Paul Rudd who will be playing Scott Lang and Michael Douglass who will be playing Hank Pym. Pym is Ant-Man in the comics, Lang steals the suit from him for his personal gain and becomes Ant-Man at one point – this will definitely be playing into the movie. But the big part is we get to see the look of Ant-Man and what those behind the movie want him to look like. They seem to be going the classic route with the helmet (he has a more Captain America like body suit now) and including the part where he can communicate with ants (making them his army basically).
There will definitely be more on these two movie in the coming days. Expect a great deal of images, news on both and footage from at least one of them. For now, here they are…
