Excitebike! Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at Avengers 2! So, let’s take a look at what we can see here.
Mr. Stark’s back in red-on-gold paint job rather than gold-on-red, looking a bit more Iron Man-y than his admittedly upscale-looking, champagne Iron Man 3 look. And Cap’s rocking a very slick, red, white, and blue upgrade of his Winter Soldier S.H.I.E.L.D. ops gear. Both are looking superheroic as all heck in their proper colors, and I’m happy to see Cap’s look utilizing the excellent details from his WS Super Soldier costume, the magnetic shield harness, the fingerless gloves, the baggy military pants, etc. The red stripes around the star look a bit tacked on, like an afterthought, but not too bad.
Ultron’s design is a bit more complex than I’d expected, but that’s alright. The empty spaces between the outer armor plates help keep his robotic nature more in mind, which is a good call in a series of movies where we’ve seen so many flying armor suits. The drone units in the background have a simple color variation to help the audience spot the difference and glowy lights on robots are always a good call in my book.
