With just over three weeks left until we all get to see the biggest superhero movie of all time (press screening tonight…), the promotion for Marvel’s gigantic superhero team-up sequel is well in the thick of things. With featurettes, Tv spots, interviews, and more all coming out left and right, it’s now time for some cool looking images. Entertainment Weekly has always been a spot for movies to take center stage before its release, with Age of Ultron doing that and more. The latest covers for EW show off the main players we’ll see in just a matter of weeks, but that’s not all, as the covers come with a wide shot of all the characters together. But that’s not all again as the Vision character we’ve all been waiting for is finally here!
The covers are pretty cool. I also have a feeling that the heroes that are pinned together aren’t there by accident, they might be put on the covers together for specific reasons. And if you haven’t already noticed, the magazine covers come together to become the character banner below. And while the covers are pretty cool looking and give us some great looks at Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the banner just doesn’t do it. When it becomes one, it stinks of photoshop. Some more than others just look oddly placed, like look at the way Vision is just plotted in there. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t be anymore excited about this movie, it might be my most anticipated of all time, but just like the Empire Cover from months back, this banner is a bit disappointing. You can’t tell me that promotion for this kind of movie can’t do better…
But on to the good stuff! So far there is still a ton of mystery surrounding this movie. We may know a lot, but my guess is we know nothing compared to what we think. One of those mysteries is Vision, one of the three new characters joining the MCU this time around. Marvel has kept Vision under wraps for the most part, and I’m sure for some big reveal. Which may have just happened…
Marvel has just released the long awaited character poster for Paul Bettany’s Vision, and it’s awesome. By far, it gives us our best look, up close and personal, on the character. Just look at the beautiful colors and incredible detail put into this character. If done right, which I’m sure is the case, Vision could become a big centerpiece for the MCU for many years to come. This character might end up being what Hulk was in the first one, the surprising and best part.
CAN THIS MOVIE JUST BE ALREADY.
