Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Promo-art-4

Amazingly, were nearly four months away exactly from the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the third most successful movie of all time, The Avengers. Here at Nerd Bastards, we cover all the angles for a major release like this, even during the holidays, so when we get word of new art work for the movie, or insight into the plot, we’re all over it. Today, you get both. First, we resolve some of the mystery around the origins of two of the major new characters in the film, and we’re not talking about the “miracle” twins we met at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Also, you better believe there’s going to be a lot of merch coming out along with Age of Ultron, and below is a look at some of the art work from those efforts. If you’re desperate for new Avengers news, then Christmas has come late for you right now. (more…)
