Entertainment Weekly‘s upcoming Summer Movie Preview double issue features four Avengers: Age of Ultron collector’s covers that form one massive image when lined up side by side. For the most part we are treated to the Photoshop heavy promos we are accustomed to. There is however our first real great look at Paul Bettany suited up as The Vision.
EW confirms that Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and her twin brother Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) are imbued with super powers by Loki’s scepter from experiments at the hands of Baron von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann). The romance between Black Widow and Bruce Banner? Yep, the hints from the trailers were not misleading. Additionally the mag reports Ultron destroys Tony Stark’s AI assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. and (no surprise here) creates the synthezoid we know as the Vision (both given life by Paul Bettany).
Here’s the official synopsis of the film from Marvel:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
