The first day of the San Diego Comic-Con is proving to be fruitful one for comic book movie geeks. Brand new arts for Marvel’s upcoming “Ant-Man” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” flicks have been released. They really look amazing and worthy to be hung in any man cave worthy of the geek who appreciates the posters. In fact, Marvel Studios is planning to give away the posters which were specially made for the annual convention. With the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” set to be released on May 1, 2015, followed by “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, fans of the comic books will be geek kings if they manage to nab some of the posters!
Check it out!
Entertainment Weekly was first to debut the new visuals created by Andy Park from Marvel’s in-house visual development department. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man and Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym can be seen in the “Ant-Man” poster released. We get to see a full frontal shot of the suit and helmet containing the particles to shrink Lang down to size. The titular character is also featured riding an ant while sporting his fancy gear.
The first “Avengers: Age of Ultron” posters gives us a better look at Robert Downey Jr.‘s “Iron Man” while he takes on a couple of Ultron’s drones. The second poster features Elizabeth Olsen‘s Scarlet Witch as she is seen surrounded by Ultron’s drones which appear to be destroyed by The Avengers team.
Any geeks out there planning to go to Comic-Con 2014 need to follow the below mentioned instructions to get their hands on these new posters (via Marvel) :
“Make sure to stop by the Marvel booth, #2329, to pick up these free posters while supplies last! These two posters are only available during Preview Night, while supplies last. Today’s posters feature artwork of Iron Man by Ryan Meinerding as well as a poster by Andy Park of Scarlet Witch. Once these two character posters are gone, then they’re gone. But maybe if you check back tomorrow, we’ll have something else in store. Maybe. Keep up with all things Marvel at SDCC by keeping your eyes on Marvel.com and following @Marvel on Twitter!”
Marvel is planning their mega showdown on Saturday, July 26.
