Marvel Reveals Concept Art For Ant Man, Avengers: Age Of Ultron and GOTG
Last night's Marvel: Assembling a Universe show may have ultimately been a huge let down for fans, but at least we got to see a pretty sweet set of concept art for some of the studio's Phase 2 movies. The hour-long propaganda-fest was capped with some awesome pieces from Ant Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, and some of it was enough to send fans giddy. While alll of the concept pieces were stunning in their own right, there was one image in particular that caused fans to get a little bit hyperactive. That image was, of course, the one you see up top; Hulk battling Tony Stark (or someone else) in an Iron Man 'Hulk-Buster' suit.
Now it's not too clear how much we should gleam from that particular piece of concept art, but it would certainly seem to suggest that Hulk could be getting a major exposure upgrade from his appearance in 'Avengers'. It could well be that Hulk will be playing the antagonist for at least part of the movie, after all, that's a theme for anything that involves Banner and his big green friend. Or could it be that this is part of some kind of training exercise in which Stark has asked Banner to help out with the development of his prototype armour?
Elsewhere, we got our first look at the new brother/sister Avenger tandem of Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch. These particular concept pieces might not have been as exciting as Hulk vs Hulk-Buster, but they were certainly a huge relief. Ever since it was confirmed that the pair would be introduced, I was a little nervous at how they would portray them. But to me, it looks like they got it spot on and I simply cannot wait to see Elizabeth Olsen in that get-up.
It wasn't just Avengers: Age of Ultron that got the limelight though. Ant Man concept art was also revealed, with one image showing the suit in miniature mode, another of it in transition plus two more detail shots here and here.
There were also a couple of GOTG shots included, but with trailers and concept art already released, these were marginally less exciting. Still Peter Quill does look like a bit of a bad-ass, as do Groot and Rocket.
