AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Promo Artwork Circulated

Another Castle

New promotional artwork for Avengers: Age Of Ultron surfaced on December 5, 2014. Among other things, the artwork revealed the first look at the android character the Vision, who will be portrayed in the film by Paul Bettany. An image popped up on Instagram and briefly circulated before being deleted. However, full images were later posted online, seemingly officially.

In Age Of Ultron, to be released May 1, 2015, the Vision will be a synthetic humanoid created by android Ultron (James Spader) to prove that he can also create life after being created in turn by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr). In the comics, the Vision rebelled against Ultron and eventually joined the Avengers, falling in love with fellow team member Scarlet Witch (to be played by Elizabeth Olsen onscreen). Age Of Ultron, like its predecessor, will be directed by Joss Whedon.

Another Castle

Image Comics announced in a press release on December 3, 2014 that their hit fantasy series Tooth And Claw will be retitled The Autumnlands: Tooth And Claw. The new title takes effect with the series’ second issue (released December 3) and will be reapplied to the first issue’s reprinting on January 7, 2015.

In the press release, reprinted in full below, series writer Kurt Busiek said,”The launch of our new series has gone beautifully. We couldn’t be happier. Well, maybe just a little happier. I’m still not sure how we managed to screw up the trademark search. But as it turns out, the title we thought was clear for use is in fact registered to someone else, which is embarrassing as all hell. Oops.” The series is illustrated by artist Benjamin Dewey, colored by Eisner Award-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire and lettered by Comicraft’s John Roshell.
