Marvel Assembles Phase 2 Concept Art
Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man included

US TV channel ABC has just aired a celebratory one-hour special called Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe, and with that came some glimpses of its upcoming Phase Two projects. Published simultaneously on Marvel's website are these pieces of concept art and snaps of test footage, showcasing Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Possible spoilers follow, so don't look if you don't wanna know.

First up is Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, giving us first impressions of Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, and a shot of Hulk and Black Widow by a collapsing building that looks not unlike something from the climax of Avengers Assembled. There's also an image doing the rounds of Iron Man putting his Hulkbuster armour to its intended use. That one isn't part of the official Marvel-released set, but hey, we'll throw it in anyway.

Then we've got Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. These four pics are, we're told, snapshots from test footage, and show the diminutive hero running, dangling and generally lurking.

And finally, a couple of shots from James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy. We've already seen something similar to that Rocket Raccoon and Groot pose in the trailer, but we think the illustration of Rocket and Peter Quill - apparently in Mos Eisley - is new.

So waddaya think? Anything there got you excited? Give us your thoughts in the comments below. Guardians Of the Galaxy is out in the UK first on August 1 this year. Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Ant-Man arrive next year, on May 1 and July 17 respectively.

Loving the concept art! I can't wait to see the official costumes for Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. I know nothing about Ant-Man's plot, but I'm still so excited to see it! More

Same old shit if the story's no good they can throw all the razzle dazzle they want at it and it won't work like all the marvel films there is no point in speculating until you're sat in the cinema or on a pirate ship. More

I know it's only concept art but it looks promising - Hulk Buster Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver look great - BlackWidow/Hulk Combo looks like a repeat shot from Avengers Assemble More

RE: Marvel Assembles Phase 2 Concept Art
Completely agree Foximus. The chitauri lacked any credible threat which made all the destruction a little bit hollow. More

Marvel Assembles Phase 2 Concept Art
That Quicksilver image suggests the bulk of the enemies could be generic Ultron robots. Hopefully that's just for the purposes of the concept art and they won't simply replace cannon fodder Chitauri with cannon fodder robots. The faceless Chitauri army is one of the few complaints I have with the first film. More
