And so it begins. Robert Downey Jr. has announced that he has officially begun his press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron. With over three weeks left until Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in the Unites States, the press tour for the film is an international event.
In a series of tweets, Downey Jr. teased that the press tour would be coming to a country near you. He also showed off a Japanese poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well a video of himself “smoldering in slo mo.”
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series The Avengers, first published in 1963.
