Avengers: Age of Ultron Set Photos Seemingly Give First Look at Ultron

Getty Images seem to have captured a first look at Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Sort of. What this is, most likely, is a stand-in suit made to block out movements and for actors to react to, not unlike the role played by Sean Gunn (as Rocket Raccoon) during production of Guardians of the Galaxy. Still, the headpiece and chestplate could be an indication of the rough size of those things on Ultron, and everything underneath could be CG'ed out to make for a digital or motion-capture body down the line. The film is shooting in Aosta, Italy currently, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) seemingly engaged in a deadly battle with Ultron (or whoever this is), complete with overturned vehicles and other wreckage. Earlier reports indicated that the area around the Bard Fortress had been made up to look like Serbia after an earthquake. Avengers: Age of Ultron is due in theaters on May 1, 2015. These three are joined by James Spader as Ultron and returning Avengers cast members Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man).
