“Get everyone in there,” must have been the direction for the final Avengers: Age of Ultron poster. The official Avengers Twitter revealed the poster, and while I wasn’t crazy about the poster for The Avengers, this one is an eyesore.

I understand that contractual obligations and marketing demands require the need to get everyone in the shot, but from a perspective angle, the sizes are a mess. It looks like the designer threw up his or her arms, said, “Screw it,” and just made sure that at least all the characters were doing a pose. I will say it’s interesting that in the time between Avengers and Age of Ultron, Captain America has clearly gained the cachet to where he’s slightly more prominent than Iron Man. Never too soon to get started for Civil War, I suppose.
Finally, since we can’t pick this poster apart enough, I’ll point out that the credits list Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, and Idris Elba, and I’m curious to see where their characters fit into the storyline.
Check out a larger version of the poster below. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in 3D on May 1st, and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany and Don Cheadle.
Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
