There are two artbooks for Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is the official book for the second Avengers film Age of Ultron The other one, The Road to Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Art of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rehash of artworks from other Marvel movie artbooks.
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Art of the Movie is a 336-page hardcover artbook that comes with a slipcase. So far, most of the Marvel artbooks are the slipcase edition and this one looks great as well.
There are plenty of character designs to look at. Most of the main Avengers designs are on updates to their costumes.
The highlights for the book are the artworks for Hulkbuster, Ultron and Vision. There are so many pages of concept art for those three it's almost shocking. The art is fantastic. Ultron is scary-looking for all the designs in the book. Vision looks so alien and mysterious. Just amazing. And if you thought the Hulkbuster in the movie was cool, you have to check out the many iteration that weren't even used. Some versions of the Hulkbuster reminded me of the animation-style Juggernaut from the X-men.
The rest of the art are of the environment, props and storyboards. You'll get to see the fortress that appeared at the start of the film, the floating "island", Hawkeye's arrows, interiors for the new Avengers HQ and other buildings, and more. Commentary is provided for most pieces of art.
This is an incredible artbook. Most highly recommended. Really worth the money.
I think it's one of the best Marvel movie artbooks so far.
