The Avengers: Age of Ultron set pic round-up; Our first look at Ultron?
UPDATE: Added a bunch of new high res pics, which include: Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and Ultron!
Joss Whedon's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is currently shooting in Italy and with the first film being the third highest grossing of all time you have to expect the set spies to be on full alert and capturing anything and everything they can. So, in the interest of supplying you with some of the cooler things that have rolled in, we've compiled a nice little round-up of set pics, video, and what may well be our first look at the titular villain: Ultron from the set in Aosta Valley, Italy. While it's unlikely we'll see any official footage or images for the film until Comic Con, there's likely to be a decent smattering of set pics and the like to help keep the fires burning for what is definitely one of the most anticipated sequels on the books.
The pics include some shots of civilians running through a parking lot with exploding cars, our first glimpse of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and what appears to be our first look at Ultron. Whether or not it's actually James Spader inside the get-up is anyone's guess, but it looks pretty convincing as the set costume for the character.
Here's the pics:
The video shows a closer look at the civilians running through the parking lot with exploding cars, as well as a sequence that features both Renner's Hawkeye and Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch presumably escorting civilians into some sort of entryway, which I'd surmise is some version of a Quinjet (since it's covered in greenscreen cloth).
Take a look:
I'm sure there'll be a lot more of this type of footage and pics to come and we'll try to keep you updated on the bigger stuff, while not inundating you with every little snippet that drops from the sky. There's a huge desire to see behind the curtains on this one, though, so you can certainly expect to see more as this continues through production.
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is set for release on May 1, 2015.
