Yesterday saw the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron burst online and as a result, the interweb starting screaming in excitement. Age Of Ultron certainly looks like an exciting movie and superhero fans were salivating at teases of the ‘Hulkbuster’ Iron Man armour as well as plenty of conflict between Captain America, Thor the rest of the team. Viewers were even treated to glimpses at new characters to the Marvel cinematic world, Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch as well as the reassurance that Nick Fury was still around to support. Noticeably absent was The Vision, Paul Bettany’s step up from voicing Tony Stark’s household security system to full on Avenger status seems to be under lock and key at the moment..
In honour of the darker, sinister tone of the movie, British artist Doaly has cooked up this rather tasty Avengers: Age Of Ultron poster, just for a bit of fun. Take a look!
Doaly’s poster playfully riffs on the song hauntingly crooned by James Spader’s menacing Ultron throughout the trailer and features the villain standing atop a broken and beaten Avengers.
Joss Whedon is the king of cult t.v. His shows have trailblazed their way across genres and demographics, creating characters you can identify with despite their fantastical situations and environments. Not to do the bloke a disservice, his movies have been bloody great, too!
This is something that those pop culture art pioneers at Gallery 1988 obviously understand as their latest show is dedicated solely to the work by the great man himself. “A Joss Whedon Art Tribute” opens this Friday, September the 5th, at G1988 (West), 7-10 PM.
