Surprise screening of Avengers: Age Of Ultron footage reveals Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor

surprise screening avengers age ultron footage reveals iron mans hulkbuster armor of hulk
Production is still underway for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, but that didn’t stop Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige from showing off some footage during a recent Guardians of the Galaxy preview event in London. Among the elements on display in the footage was a sequence featuring Hulk battling Irno Man, who is wearing his massive “Hulkbuster” armor, as well as a few other noteworthy set pieces.

Describing the Hulkbuster armor as “[Tony] Stark’s normal red and gold armour after hitting the gym,” Radio Times reports that Iron Man’s new suit is nearly as large as Hulk, and “where his normal suit is sleek as a missile, this is bruising like a tank.” The report added that the footage was very unfinished still, and the previously released concept art (posted above) actually looks better than what appeared on the screen at that point. There was no word on why the heroes were fighting.

The footage also included some scenes of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in action, as well as Scarlet Witch using her powers while assisting Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). In the Marvel Comics universe, Scarlet Witch has the power to manipulate probability through something called “chaos magic,” and the report notes that the footage depicted Olsen’s character “making some blocks float around.”

The scene featuring Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye was set on an Italian street, offering a glimpse at the international setting for the Avengers sequel, which will reportedly unfold in Italy, South Korea, and South Africa in addition to the U.S.

The brief preview of Age Of Ultron also included some scenes inside the new Avengers Tower. The team’s headquarters is reportedly designed by Tony Stark and constructed on the ruins of his New York penthouse, which was destroyed during the Chitauri invasion in The Avengers (with a little help from Hulk and Loki, of course). The team’s new base of operations has laboratories for both Stark and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as well as parking for the team’s aircraft.

With Comic-Con International in San Diego kicking off next week, it’s very likely that some or all of this footage could receive a second screening during Marvel’s presentation at the convention.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon and hits theaters May 1, 2015.
