The text below include a description of some footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which mean potential spoilers. So, if you want to avoid any spoilers, jump to D&M next article!
A reel from Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron was screened in the UK recently when Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was holding a preview and Q&A for Guardians of the Galaxy. The good folks of Radio Times were there, and thanks to them we have a description of the footage, which Kevin Feige said will probably never be shown again. Here's the description provided by Radio Times, which includes a scene with the Hulkbuster!
"Known as the ‘Hulkbuster’ in the comics, it looks like Stark’s normal red and gold armour after hitting the gym, and is almost the size of the Hulk himself. Where his normal suit is sleek as a missile, this is bruising like a tank. It’s the iPad to the original’s iPhone, Frasier to the original’s Niles. There’s no word on why the two heroes are fighting, but the Hulk doesn’t need much reason to get in a scrap. You can see some concept art of the fight above: it actually looks better here than the very unfinished footage we saw."
"Also sighted were new brother sister duo Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Scarlet has mysterious reality warping powers (in the footage this mostly involved making some blocks float around) while Quicksilver can run really, really fast (although without the special effects, it was more of a light jog). Scarlet Witch was shown fighting alongside Hawkeye on a ruined Italian street, but earlier in the reel both she and her brother were locked in fancy Perspex prison cells. Designed by Stark out of the ruins of his New York penthouse, this has all mod cons: floor to ceiling windows, twin laboratories for Stark and Bruce Banner, and parking for supersonic jets. It’s reminiscent of the SHIELD helicarrier in terms of construction, with lots of shiny metal pillars."
With a bit of luck may be they'll show this footage again at San Diego's Comic Con next week! In the meantime you can discover a first set of official pictures from Age of Ultron just released officially today by Marvel on D&M Facebook page HERE.
