The Avengers were out in force last night during Marvel's eye-popping Comic-Con panel, and despite plenty of mirth and goodwill on the packed panel itself, the footage shown to the crowd hinted at a much darker story to come in Joss Whedon's 'Avengers 2.'
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
After catching a glimpse of the villainous "Mad Titan" Thanos in the post-credits scene of 'The Avengers,' inquiring minds wanted to know when we might see the overarching Marvel baddie again. We know that he'll make his first ever appearance in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but might he also pop up in 'Avengers 2'?

"Have you ever been hung in the air by your genitals? I have," joked 'Avengers 2' star Paul Bettany. During the earlier Comic-Con 2014 festivities, Marvel released a slew of concept art-based posters for the film, one of which featured newcomer character The Vision floating above Ultron's many robotic minions, and it turns out the process of transforming Bettany into this sentient being wasn't always seamless. "It’s a very sweaty and hot decision that got made. But it’s really fucking cool."
Looks like Captain America isn't the only Avenger who can get around on two wheels, as a new look at Joss Whedon's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' reveals that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) will also be taking it to the streets on a big hog. ComingSoon shares this first look of Black Widow on the bike -- along with further information about why this bike is so special. Turns out, it's Harley-Davidson's very first electric motorcycle, one they like to call by the superhero movie-ready name "Project LiveWire."
On the heels of the reveal of the exclusive concept art poster for 'Ant-Man,' Marvel Studios has also unleashed two concept art posters for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' at Comic-Con 2014, featuring our heroes battling a whole bunch of nasty robots.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' hasn't even hit theaters yet, but we know it's got at least one major connection to 'The Avengers.' Aside from existing in the same cinematic playground, the intergalactic "Mad Titan" known as Thanos will be the future nemesis of The Avengers, in addition to being the evil puppet master of the villains in 'Guardians.' Does this mean Marvel will have both teams of superheroes crossover for one big team-up in a future movie?
