Iron Man gets first Avengers: Age Of Ultron character poster

Captain America may be the leader of the Avengers, but there’s no doubting who the star of the franchise is, with Robert Downey Junior’s Iron Man getting the first character poster from Age Of Ultron.

The poster itself is fairly standard stuff, with a suited but helmetless Tony Stark preparing for battle against a horde of Ultron’s mechanised underlings.

Downey himself tweeted the image, along with the promise of “a big announcement in 8 days”. A new trailer on the way, perhaps?

You can take a look at the new poster in full, below…

Directed by Joss Whedon and co-starring Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson et al, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 23 April 2015 and the US on 1 May 2015.
