Robert Downey Jr. drops a new Iron Man poster and teases a big announcement

Fortunately for Marvel fans, Robert Downey Jr. is a very active member of social media. Earlier today the man took to Twitter to drop a brand new AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON poster of the one and only Iron Man. Furthermore, he had something to say regarding an announcement coming in a little over a week's time. Check out the original Tweet below!

I imagine the above is the first of many character posters that will hit the net before AGE OF ULTRON hits theaters, although the announcement . . . announcement is intriguing. The new Avengers film hits in just over 2 months' time so I imagine Marvel would want to focus all of their marketing on that. However, if they really wanted to get fans riled up, they'd make an announcement about a certain character that's just been added to Marvel's roster. I think you know what what I'm getting at here! THE JUDGE 2 will now be a Marvel property! Or, ya know, not. I can safely say that one of the two is true.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Wolverine

Hopefully the announcement has to do with Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine until he dies, maybe he decided to do that because he will be joining the Avengers roster? That's the biggest news you could put out besides and Iron Man 4 which really isn't "big" news.

Big News!?! He signed for 10 more movies, hopefully!

I bet he signed for a lot more movies. After hearing about Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine till he dies, RDJ wouldn't be outdone he signed his life away and will be CGI in the 8th Avengers film.

I read somewhere that these without mask posters are a marketing ploy to help sell the movie to the general public ("hey guys, these guys are playing this larger than life characters...in case you didn't know". Even if I was okay with that, why can't the character posters have the stars with their masks on...you know...for the fans of the characters?

You don't understand marketing at all.

Moms want to see RDJ. They don't read the text on the paper, they just see RDJ. The stars faces sell tickets, not the heroes. This is just a poster, so why is there so much outrage over them not wearing helmets/masks? They sell a lot more tickets to people who know nothing than they do to fans anyways. We fans only make up about 40% of ticket sales. The rest are teenage girls, parents, moms who like the actors and dads who like ScarJo.

Will they be continuing the tradition of Marvel short films bridging the gaps between the big releases? One where Stark is planning the registration act and is analysing footage of various heroes to establish their weaknesses would be great - end it with him looking at Spidey in action.
As for Iron Man 4 - could take it or leave it for the time being - Marvel have a lot going on - but the right story or a smaller team-up movie for him could work well.

We already know about Spidey though. We know he will be in Civil War as the property that sets him up and then he will be in 2 Sony films and then the Avengers 3.

Probably about time to announce some new contracts with the cast. And then they'll announce another 9 movies they're making.

The way the light/glare hit's RDJ's eyes, it almost looks like he has cat eyes. That's why he needs the helmet, to block out those nasty blinding lights.

Hopefully its Iron Man 4 and beyond. Ideally I'd love to see Downey's Stark around for another decade. They really need to undo the Mandarin debacle from 3 and end it on a high note. If he signs for another half dozen appearances I'll be a gleeful fanboi lol.

I don't get all the hate for these posters and the nitpickiness with the sizing. Unless something is glaringly obvious in its disproportion, why does it matter? So we're supposed to have suspended disbelief when watching these movies but the posters need to be 100% realistic? I for one like this poster and the one released yesterday. Think they're pretty solid (not amazing) and I look forward to the rest of the character posters. Also can't wait to hear what the announcement is.

Is it me or does his head look out of proportion to the suit? It looks like his neck line from the front is wrong too.

Don't overthink it...

...we'll most likely get new character posters every day until the announcement, which is almost guaranteed to be the final trailer for Age of Ultron. That seems like the most obvious way for Marvel to further market this movie. Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Black Widow, Hulk, Fury, the Twins, maybe even save the Vision poster for last, then the trailer? We'll see!

Still...

They should at least release alternate versions of these posters with the Helmets/Masks on.

Maybe...

They'll announce that he's staying on as Tony Stark. The three robots on the left represent the 3 current Iron Man movies and the four on the right represent 4 more appearances as the character. Am I too high?

I think that is likely. 2 more Avengers movies, Capt. America 3, and Iron Man 4.
