Two years ago, Marvel Studios brought all of the Avengers to Hall H for its San Diego Comic Con Presentation. This year, Marvel Studios Chairman Kevin Feige instead brought almost all of the Avengers and a few villains. In attendance this past weekend included: Robert Downey Jr. (holding a rose out to the crowd), Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, James Spader (Ultron), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver). Missing was a very pregnant Scarlett Johansson and a not-so-pregnant Joss Whedon.

Here are a few quotes from the Avengers Panel:

Chris Hemworth (Thor) about Thor becoming a woman: “I don’t want to speak too early and jinx it, but I think that could be my Oscar.”

Paul Bettany (J.A.R.V.I.S./Vision): “I used to show up at a dark room for 45 minutes and get aback of cash. Now I have to work.”

Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch): “There are mutated people…”

James Spader (Ultron): “I play an 8-foot robot in this movie. I’ve always played humans up until now.”

Scarlett Johansson on video: “Hey guys, I don’t mean to cramp your style but I’m running out of time here. Hey Kev, you want to be a doll and roll that video footage?”

Based on the tweets of the principal actors, it appears that principle photography has begun on Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here are some examples:

Looks like the paparazzi have gotten on set photos of the villain Ultron from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. My guess is that this is not the actual costume and the actor will be replace in post-production as done with the villain’s in the first Avengers movie.
