New Teaser Images from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly

Avengers: Age of Ultron is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is intended to be the sequel to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Entertainment Weekly nabbed these marvelous shots from the upcoming Avengers sequel.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark / Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers / Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Dr Bruce Banner / The Hulk), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton / Hawkeye), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch) with Paul Bettany (the Vision), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and James Spader (Ultron) opens in theaters 05/01/15.

New movie means all new superhero costumes for our heroes which means all new figures for collectors. The collection and wait for new figures continues. Not too sure if that's the same for the Hulk as I don't really see the Hulk having / needing a new costume. After seeing Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which was one of the best scenes in the movie IMHO, I wonder how Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver will do in the Avengers sequel.

"Suit up" seems the be the appropriate caption for the picture above. Black Widow is back to having short wavy hair plus a new outfit as well. Since S.H.I.E.L.D. is no more, one wonders who is she working for now.

I see Don Cheadle. Does that mean that we will see Iron Patriot as well?

Remember to grab Hot Toys 1/6 scale Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye this time around. We all know what happened to 12-inch Hawkeye from The Avengers. The price just went up like crazy.

With the announcement this week by Marvel that Thor will now be female, does that mean that this will be the last time we see Chris Hemsworth as Thor: the crown prince of Asgard? Why did Marvel pick Thor for the sudden change? If Thor is based on the Norse mythology, then shouldn't he remain male? Thor has been doing well. Even the movies of Thor are doing well. And he'll be in Avengers 2 so I'm really not too sure where Marvel is going with this. After all, Marvel already has Valkyrie (kind of like a lady Viking).

Will Tony Stark bring on his hulkbuster to deal with the Hulk? Your guess is as good as mine.

Can't wait to catch this movie. But first, there's "Guardians of the Galaxy" which is screening from July 31, 2014.

On another note: Marvel's 'Avengers NOW!': Captain America is black, Thor is female, Iron Man has a new suit (not the familiar red and gold we are used to). Is this Marvel's new 52?

This guy probably isn't him but the ORIGINAL Captain America or the first successful prototype experiment subject was a black man named Isaiah Bradley, or The Truth. The female Thor is completely "out of left field" as they say.

This new Captain America is Falcon. Current storyline will have Cap losing his super soldier powers and Falcon steps in.

I think it's all a gimmick to drum up interest, and in a year or two things will revert back to status quo.
