“When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it’s up to Earth’s mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.”
Creative design agency BLT Communications pulled out all the stops when they issued the marketing campaign posters for the Marvel Studios’ blockbuster “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. This original 2015 UK quad film poster for Marvel’s all action super hero romp is certainly impressive as all the heroes are beautifully realised on the sweeping landscape format of the British quad; Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye are joined by the newcomers Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), her twin brother Pietro (Quicksilver) and Vision, all ready to battle Ultron’s lethal android army. Originally rolled (as issued) this looks stunning and displays and presents to excellent effect. One of the best looking posters to date for any of the prolific Marvel Studios releases with spectacular detailed imagery and bright colours. A hugely important and collectable piece of movie memorabilia from the Studio that can do no wrong and if first appearances in movies and on movie posters follows the same trend as the comics then with Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision appearing in this instalment it is a must have item.
Trivia: Joss Whedon cast Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch because he thought their powers would be cool to use in a film: “Their powers are very visually interesting. One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers. Quicksilver’s got super-speed, Scarlet Witch can weave spells, and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. That’s good stuff they can do, that will help keep it fresh.”…more detail
