Robert Downey Jr. Reveals First Official Pic From Age Of Ultron
Genius billionaire playboy publicist?

While there have been pap-grabbed early set pics and imagery from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, it has fallen to recent Twitter arrival and Marvel Cinematic Universe Prom King Robert Downey Jr. to release the first official look at the superhero sequel. And it’s… Er… Well, just look.

Yes, it’s the sort of ordinary, nothing-to-see-here display that you can only imagine Downey Jr. getting away with, essentially punking anyone who thought he mighty deliver some massive spoiler. He’s pictured dressed in what is best described as Industrial Safety Chic alongside long-time executive producer Jeremy Latcham. What clues can we gain from the image? Well, given the sneaky yellow figure creeping up behind the pair, we feel confident in predicting that popular Marvel villain Ladder-Man will be making his debut in the film, causing no end of trouble for any of our heroes who are a bit superstitious of walking beneath him. Tremble at his terrible laddery powers! Or not.

The film will also find Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye meeting and either befriending or battling the likes of Paul Bettany’s Vision, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver and James Spader’s Ultron. Ladder-Man or no, Age Of Ultron will be out on April 24, 2015.

I hope we get an actual official photo soon. Or at least some proper set photos that weren't from some muppet filming them from afar. More

Wow RDJ, that was worth setting up a Twitter account for, eh?! If you're not prepared / able / permitted to show anything useful or interesting, don't bother! More
